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

Picture(Click 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.

PEOPLE INTRANSIT

Picture(click image to enlarge)People InTransit takes its inspiration from train and bus stations and airports, the behaviour of individuals and the movement of people through them. We use the idea of these spaces as a metaphor for life in Modern London, with people coming and going, and some staying longer than others. Although you hear many languages spoken by the dancers and part of the soundscape, the voices say little of importance. To create the movement language we have used Makaton – a language programme using signs and symbols to help people communicate, so we invite you to listen to the dancers bodies


MORE ABOUT PEOPLE INTRANSIT

Choreographed by Mari Frogner, People InTransit was created for the Royal Borough of Chelsea and Kensington’s InTransit Festival 2011. It was commisioned as part of the event – Common sounds: touching the void, which was produced by fruit-for-the-apocalypse and performed 15-18th July 2011 at the Commonwealth institute.

I DON’T SEE THIS HAPPENING 

Picture(Click image to enlarge)info@homebaseproject.org ‘I don’t see this happening’ is a live performance about home, identity, communication and communal living. Ordinary situations and moments of the daily life we ‘tend’ not to see. It’s about the blindness of the everyday within the context of living together and its physical-intellectual multiple dynamics. This experimental performance aims to create a situation for the audience to reflect on the topic. If we don’t see what we see, we might like to assume our blindness and let the rest of our senses perceive what goes on around us and to listen to what happens to the ones that share the same space we inhabit. Who doesn’t have an ordinary life after all… Yes, so you do too.
 
After the performance, we’ll serve dinner in which both the audience and the performers will sit together and share the same table, having the opportunity to discuss and reflect on each others experiences during the performance.

ABOUT THE HOMEBASE PROJECT

The HomeBase Project is a site-specific urban art project and international artist-in-residence program exploring the notion of home. Operating in the intersection of art and social change, HomeBase seeks to foster interconnectedness in society through contemporary art while experimenting in meaningful urban living.
Each year HomeBase transforms vacant urban sites in neighbourhoods undergoing change, into temporary multi-diciplinary ‘homes’, which nurture artistic exploration, community cultivation, cross-cultural dialogue, social integration, research and education.
