ONE-WEEK PERFORMANCE ART LABORATORY AT GLOGAUAIR (FROM MAY 21ST TO MAY 26TH)

Picture(Click on image to enlarge)GlogauAIR proposal for this week-long Art Laboratory is to work with physical and conceptual LIMITATIONs. By progressively limiting the tools and elements that Performance Art uses, the participants will have to develop and adapt new strengths and strategies in the final presentation of their work. By utilising and working at the beginning of the workshop with objects, words, in groups, in a large space and with different body parts, the final performance will be stripped down of all these tools and taken back to an object-less, word-less, space-less and solo presentation.

GENERAL INFO:
– Max. 6 participants.
– Artists from all fields interested in a cooperative experience and open to work together in a basis of dialogue and exchange.
– The participants will be selected together with the organisers of MPA.
– The organisers’ will be mediating the collaboration and establishing basic tools for the group work. There will also be a person with a camera filming parts of the work, and we might install a projector on the window, for the public to see live what is happening inside the building.
– We leave the possibility for a public presentation depending on the development of the work. This would only be improvised and organized by the participants. Our aim is to avoid the pressure that a public presentation can produce on the cooperative work, having in consideration that in the month of May there will be many performance venues and open stages in Berlin.

ABOUT GLOGAUAIR

Nowadays taking part in an Artist in Residence Programme supposes a desired stage for an artist career as it allows them to put their work in a global context. This model was born at the beginning of the XXth century and has grown widely during the last years with the globalization expansion, up to become essential for the international art market. In a moment where the art’s value gives priority to the process more than the final work, the Artist in Residence Programmes have turned into temples of works in progress and multiculturalism. In GlogauAIR artists from diverse social and geographical backgrounds find a place to develop their works in a dynamic environment of coexistence, exchange of ideas and internationalization. At the same time they get to know a new culture and landscape in Berlin, getting influences from de city, which has became a pioneer place for contemporary culture. The non profit organization GlogauAIR was founded by the Spanish artist Chema Alvargonzález in 2006 with the intention to create a meeting point between artists from all disciplines to work in collaboration, expanding their practice in terms of materials, formats and style. The processes are shown every three months in an open studios exhibition where the public can see the works of the resident artists in a relaxed and festive event.

ABOUT AGORA

AGORA is a platform that empowers individuals through multi-disciplinary collaborative creation, a gathering space of professionals, driven by the urge to explore new ways of interaction and collaboration in today’s context. We are dedicated on creating intelligent forms of producing, working and living – artistically, socially and economically. As an airport of ideas; making bridges, connecting talented and engaged people. Agora is also an incubator; developing and supporting artistic, social, environmental and economical projects. Much of our space healthily remains in constant flux. Every few days the tables and walls shift to incorporate a new art exhibition, workshop, lecture, performance, yoga class, organic food fair, film screenings and all sorts of cultural projects.
Since our founding in June 2011 we have quickly gathered a community made up of members from over 30 nationalities. Like our resilient home base of Berlin we view the world’s differences and its diversity as powering the potential for constructive growth and advancement.

[ MPA-B ϟ PUBLIC SPACE ] PERFORMANCE SERIES: …RAUMTEILEN… (SPACE SHARING): KLICKLACK – ZEIT …ZEIT – LEBENS BILD BY BETTINA WAGNER

Picture(Click on image to enlarge)Giving signs, in an age of big question marks, with gestures full of humour and spirit. Cutlery – spoons, forks, knives and chopsticks – hasn’t always been used for eating. In the 16th century, for example, the fork was only rarely used at the dinner table. Everything takes its course over time: time enough for taking time. Everyday cutlery is offered with skill and a measure of composure. Something taken for granted appears in unexpected light and is heard in new tones. The performer shares the space with guests. As they eat or linger, she lets spaces emerge, sometimes in quite the opposite way to how it happens every day, sometimes as the icing on the cake. Looks cross over, things hang in the balance, discussions are interrupted and distant things come close — fleeting moments that stimulate contemplation and the discovery of new things for oneself.

ABOUT RAUMTEILEN 

…RAUMTEILEN… (SPACE SHARING) is a cultural strategy that will create spaces in spaces in order to investigate and develop different ways of living together. Different locations in Berlin-Mitte have been selected as performance sites to enable interaction between artists, spectators and people passing by. The aim is not only to establish a direct reference to the respective location but also to experience and appreciate the space from the perspective of person-to-person relationships.

In this performance series public space acts as an “area for encounters”. Personal and political histories will be told and both everyday and unusual situations will be created in which spectators are invited to reflect on the city. The view should not remain superficial. This way, …RAUMTEILEN… will expose Berlin-Mitte’s “New Urbanity” vision as a tourist attraction and see the district as a neutral, open place in which people can meet, regardless of their background and social class. The main theme is “Share and be shared”.

UP AND DOWN BY STEFANIE POLEK + SHAKING HANDS BY ELISA ANDESSER 

PictureElisa Andessner (Click on image to enlarge)UP AND DOWN BY STEFANIE POLEK www.primakunst.info   
The 40-minute long performance Up and Down associates light moments of childhood, such as swinging, with moments of bitter sadness and hopelessness. Combining these bright shiny moments together with a desperate one, which everyone of us has in his/her life, Stefanie creates a realistic handling between too much optimism and pessimism. 

SHAKING HANDS BY ELISA ANDESSNER
During this 20-minute long performance Elisa will hold a tray full of empty glasses. Through the weight of this tray her muscles, from her hands, arms and  later shoulders, will induce vibrations which will be guided/led to the glasses.  This vibration will cause/generate sounds  depending on the position of the tray: high, above, low, near to her body  causing different sound intensities and tones. Elisa uses glasses as musical instruments.  As time draws on the glasses, they seem/appear to have their own life. Elisa asymmetrical posture in combination with these empty glasses amplifies/enhances the spectator’s feeling of uncertainty and fear, as the glasses can fall any moment.  This performance is the enhanced “moment of possible next catastrophe”.
