[ MPA-B ϟ PUBLIC SPACE ] PERFORMANCE SERIES:…RAUMTEILEN… (SPACE SHARING): H A L T E S T E L L E BY MICHAELA MUCHINA & NATHALIE FARI

h a l t e s t e l l e (stopping place)
Michaela Muchina & Nathalie Fari/Hauptbahnhof:
The performance h a l t e s t e l l e is a “seat in public space” where the spectator is involved in the action. This seat is a mobile object located at three different points close to Berlin Hauptbahnhof station. Each point represents an “island” of encounters in public space. On these islands, the spectators and performers share the same perspective – they not only sit next to each other but they also try to find, together, the crossover “from stopping place to empty space”. The h a l t e s t e l l e enables you to withdraw from your thoughts for a moment and to put yourself and your environment in a different context

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”.

TEILUNG – TEILUNG – DIVISION ET PARTAGE BY STEFANIE POLEK

Picture(Click image to enlarge)The german word “Teilung” can give a variety of meanings: division, partition, participation, and sympathy. Through her performance Stefanie will deconstruct all these different meanings while also interacting with food to further perform the ambiguity of this term.

U-BAHN ANTIGONE (PART A)

Picture(Click image to enlarge)U-Bahn Antigone is a performance inspired by the socio-spatial specifics of Berlin U-Bahn. The physical organization of space imposes a particular logic and produces norms, docility and conduct of everyday life. Urban planning and architecture manifest an ideology of a time and place, they are created according to it and simultaneously sustain it. Travelling from a starting point to a destination establishes a hierarchy where the “in-between” environments are marginalized and overlooked. Nevertheless, these settings’ liminality encompasses a performative potential. They enhance the fleeting and momentary but also the eternal nature of space and time. By employing durational performance strategies in this environment, we aim to question and comment on these hegemonic hierarchies. 
Furthermore, the performance deals with the tension between the human body and over-complex artificial systems (such as transportation systems). Being practical, precise and repetitive, minimalistic but efficient, these structures excel in peculiar aesthetic beauty. They represent humanity’s greatest achievements but they also encompass its inherent self-destructive potential. The human body remains to be the fundamental receiver and building-block of these structures. This body is consistent in its inconsistency; it is continually deteriorating and fragile. It introduces a perpetual instability into any strict configuration. Our project pertain the fascinating interface between these two phenomena.  The performance is constructed around a pre-set route through various platforms and train carts of the Berlin U-Bahn. We employ physical choreographed sequences, rule games and a playful approach to public space. Different languages used relate to participants’ cultural origins.  The performance can be viewed both by passers-by and audiences that accompany the performers from the beginning till the last scene. That will be the first part of the U-Bahn Antigone project.

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.
