BRIDGES AND NON-BRIDGES OF PERFORMANCE ART AND CONTEMPORARY DANCE
Agora Collective, Diego Agulló and guests
Agora Thinks Performance Art 2013 focuses on questions that permeate and connect two distinctive manifestations from the performative field: Contemporary Dance and Performance Art. Evidently, these fields generate their own set of mechanisms during the respective processes of creation. Although, in terms of artistic production, there are several examples from the past and nowadays where both worlds collide. One can perceive that the two disciplines constitute separated scenes and the impression they have from one another is still generated by clichés.
Agora Thinks Performance Art 2013 dedicates its activities during May into the frame of the Month of Performance Art–Berlin to create bridges between the disciplines and contexts to encourage the interaction between Contemporary Dance and Performance Art professionals.

Bubble is a reflection of our deepest inner. It shows our most intimate part, what makes us different. It is a reflection of ourselves, a meditation space, is the Zen way and its samadhi, is the time that Zarathustra lived in the mountains and that Plato went to achieve “The Good”.
Although, at the same time, the bubble is a symbol of what doesn’t let us socializing with the surroundings, is the individualism of an artist, philosopher or poet even his narcissism, is the individualism of the citizen, is the social insulation. All this concept is translated to the visual world as an anthropomorphic wood sphere, covered by branches of vine as a metaphor of our natural essence. Inside the bubble will live a person during one day in the middle of a public space as the link that exists between subject (bubble) and context.

BIG AND BITE SIZE
Joseph Patricio in collaboration with Elena Dahl, Antje Rieck, Diego Zavala Aldana, Rafael Machado
A series of three durational street interventions that will happen in four different monuments of Berlin. The inspiration began with a very personal question that the artist asks himself: does size really matter? or should I ask a different question instead? Each Saturday afternoon, a rather colorful Joseph will roam outside a different monument and offer free street food to the public. In each site, Joseph will thematize a different discourse about dimension and will affect his interaction with the monuments and their publics.
“Measurement is thus displacement. One not only displaces oneself, in order to take the measure, but one also displaces the territory in its representation, in its geometric or cartographic reproduction.” — Paul Virilio

“Territory” examines the boundaries between spaces. What interests us, are those boundaries that are fixed, limited and violated. Who sets these limits and who violates them? What does this mean for us as individuals? What does it mean for the coexistence in our society? And what are the consequences when boundaries have been trespassed and altered? With “Territory”, we are attempting to make these intrinsic and extrinsic processes visible.
Mit “Territory” untersuchen wir die Begrenzung von Räumen. Es geht uns dabei um Grenzziehungen, Eingrenzungen und auch Grenzüberschreitungen: Wer legt Grenzen fest, wer verletzt sie? Was bedeutet das für uns als Einzelindividuum, was für das Zusammenleben in einer Gesellschaft? Und was sind die Konsequenzen von Grenzverschiebungen und Grenzverletzungen? Dabei versuchen wir sowohl intrinsische als auch extrinsische Prozesse sichtbar zu machen.

ARTIST IN EXHIBITION
Something strange and familiar.
A body differently in space.
A different space to adapt.
Visibility and invisibility.
Surrounded by mystery and speculation.
Apparently stagnant and in identity crisis.
In a world increasingly complex and connected.
More one product on the shelf.
Made for few, for their own or for the masses.
Try to make us believe that art is over…
Direct from Brazil to Berlin. How is this scenario in the city of the arts?
You can’t miss this show!

15:00 Monbijoupark (near bronze sculpture) – Tacheles (main entrance – now closed door) – Tacheles back door (sculpture garden) – Bodenmuseum (via either Canal, Tango and Commedia) and back to Monbijoupark

WHY PERFORMING HAS TO BE NAKED
Tijana Titin, Boris Duhm, Clemence Lacheny
When a situation becomes an image it can become symbolic and gain a political or social dimension. Boris Duhm´s experimental multimedial work refers to this very moment of transformation while Tijana Titin´s work has its roots in baroque Mannerism,with its free naked and half-naked figures in complex positions, that creates light and eternal beings.
In this dialogue Boris Duhm and Tijana Titin are creating a field of total bodyperformance inside the Kreuzberg Pavillon that temporarily turns the exhibition space into one big accessible pinhole camera. Visitors of the show can become part of a giant photogram by the artists, when they agree to join the artists naked on the floor during the shot of the image. The evening will be introduced by Clemencé Lacheny performing french songs on guitar.
