Cooperation with the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK


Performance Netzwerk Thüringen is invited to Venice


After a closed and intense cooperation with the Warsaw International Performance Art Weekend last year, the Performance Netzwerk Thüringen is super excited to send four wonderful Performance Artists from Thüringen to Co-Creation Live Factory | ART WEEK 2017. This happens because of a profound and heartfelt cooperation with Venice International Performance Art Week this year.

Last year and this year, these great exchanges are possible because of the generous support from LAG Spiel und Theater in Thüringen e.V. Thank you all!!!

Please stay tuned and follow us here: http://www.veniceperformanceart.org/index.php

Our Performance troup from Thüringen consits of Carla Kienz (Weimar), Marie Künne (Erfurt), Samira Engel (Weimar) and Christian Weiss (Erfurt). We are pretty excited to see you all next week in the eternal city of Venice.






VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK 2017




The new project of the Venice International Performance Art Week
"CO-CREATION LIVE FACTORY Prologue 1”
European Cultural Centre | Palazzo Mora, Venice (IT)
Open to the public on the days December 14-16, 2017
__________________________________________________________

With a new project under the title "CO-CREATION LIVE FACTORY Prologue 1", the Venice International Performance Art Week heads into a new direction. Founded on the principles of artistic collaboration, cooperation and temporary artistic community, "CO-CREATION LIVE FACTORY" is born to be an artistic experience of a different kind.

The concept developed out of the ART WEEK's core mission and its Educational Learning Program. The aim is to empower participating international artists who have been selected through an Open Call, to articulate and develop their individual praxis during ten days within an independent temporary autonomous zone of co-creation, under the tuition of the artists Marilyn Arsem, VestAndPage and Andrigo&Aliprandi.

The culmination of this 10 days co-creation process will be open to the public on December 14-16, 2017: we will transform the ART WEEK venue Palazzo Mora together into a dynamic performance site through a series of collective performance operas, as well as collaborative and solo performances.

The project is intended for those artists, performers, visionary poets, who wish to articulate and refine their skills, expand their practice, exploring new ideas and approaches, allowing their work to become more fully realised. It offers a rare opportunity to explore new territories of performance in an extended, intensive period of time outside of an academic setting. It is both a learning path and a unique occasion to work and collaborate together in the ART WEEK venue at the European Cultural Centre | Palazzo Mora, while strengthening the creative talent and intellectual freedom of each participant.

"CO-CREATION LIVE FACTORY Prologue 1" consists of:

• 10 days of intensive co-creation workshop processes for selected international artists in tutor groups led by the artists ANDRIGO & ALIPRANDI (Italy), MARILYN ARSEM (US) and VestAndPage (Venice/Germany), including discussions on specific topics structured in the form of roundtables and open dialogues.

• Morning lectures and artistic interventions by ROBIN DEACON (Artist, Chicago), JILL MCDERMID & ERIK HOKANSON (Artists and directors, New York); PREACH R SUN (Artist, US), and MARCEL SPARMANN (Artist, Germany), as well as lectures by ELISABETTA DI MAMBRO (Artistic director and producer, Venice) and FRANCESCA CAROL ROLLA (Curator, Venice).

• Three days program of public performances on 14 - 16 December 2017 at the Venice International Performance Art Week venue Palazzo Mora, Venice (Admission free), including an exhibition section displaying performance pedagogical material.

// Zur performativen Realitätsforschung // Performancekurs in Weimar



„Die Zerstörung einer Illusion ergibt noch keine Wahrheit, sondern nur ein Stück Unwissenheit mehr, eine Erweiterung unseres »leeren Raumes« [...]”
(Friedrich Nietzsche)

Was wir als real und wirklich, vielleicht sogar als wahrhaftig bezeichnen, ist oft nicht mehr als die brüchige Grenzziehung zwischen tatsächlicher- und gewünschter Realität. Eine Linie auf der wir Schritt für Schritt balancieren und uns wünschen, sie möge zum Pfad, zum bequemen Weg werden. Schon das Suchen und Finden von Meldungen, die die tatsächliche Wirklichkeit abbilden, wird immer komplexer und erscheint undurchdringlich. Wir leben mit Fakenews, Headlines und allgegenwärtigen Pop-Mantras. Wir klammern uns an das 'Im Moment sein', ohne diesen Moment bisher erfahren zu haben, wir füllen Leerstellen mit populistischen Krach und sind dauerhaft erschöpft im Antworten.

Daher soll sich diese Werkstatt allein der Wirklichkeit wie sie ist und nicht wie wir sie haben wollen, widmen. Sie soll sich mit diesen Phänomen in all seinen Facetten und Extremen nach Innen und nach Außen beschäftigen; mit den Fragen nach künstlerischem Handeln, welches mich und andere Wirklichkeit erfahren lässt, nach körperlichen Kippmomenten, nach Ritualen, nach Räumen, Objekten, Grenzen die unbedingt wahr sind. Diese Werkstatt soll gleichermaßen Realitätslabor, wie auch eigener Seismograph dafür werden.

Formal arbeiten wir mit dem Performativen in und um uns herum, mit dem Poetischen, mit Bewegungsmaterial, mit Objekten und Texten, mit collagenhaft-szenischen Schnipseln oder auch Foto und Video.

Ort:
Probenraum am Markt 10, Weimar (über Restaurant Ratskeller)

Zeit:
ab 28.03., jeden Dienstag 19.00 – 22.00Uhr

Gebühr: 90€

‘perform yourself, perform the other’ soll die Aufmerksamkeit auf die originäre Bildsprache der aktuellen Protestbewegungen legen. In den sozialen Bewegungen der jüngsten Zeit tauchen vielerorts immer wieder Motive auf die sich in Bild und Stil sichtlich von der Bildsprache der Proteste letzter Jahrzehnte abheben.

Neben den klassischen, rein Bild basierten Trägern wie Poster, Karikaturen, Objekte, Kleidung, Farben etc., sind es vor allem die Aktionen die für Aufmerksamkeit und Lebendigkeit der Proteste führen. Als hinlänglich bekannte Beispiele können der still stehende Mann auf dem Taksim Platz in Istanbul, die Reenactments der Französischen Revolution in den Straßen von Sofia oder auch die Aktionen der „Femen“ Gruppe herangeführt werden. Der menschliche Körper kann somit vielleicht als das letzte noch funktionierende Warnsystem gelten. Er schlägt Alarm und wir müssen uns fragen, ob er nicht sogar die letzte noch nicht korrumpierte Instanz darstellt.

Basierend auf der künstlerischen Bildforschung von aktuellen Protestbewegungen soll eine visuell agierte, bzw. auf Aktion basierte Bildsprache untersucht, entwickelt und selbst ausprobiert werden.

After the very successful and inspiring 1st edition of Warsaw International Performance Art Weekend with the topic 'Turbulence', including the fringe section 'Below the Line'; we feel now the great need to continue this important research and conversation about the most pressing topics our days and their performative articulations. 'Turbulence' is therefore a perfect frame and points in countless directions to continue. Enriched with a number of powerful and vigorous performances within this context during WIPAW, we would like to invite you into a more fragile sphere: the BREaKING POINTS.
Here we want to raise awarness for the fractured areas in us and our environment, for the imperceptible moment shortly before and after the crack, for the slightes split which could tell us anything and nothing. Maybe we want to stop time and rewind, breathe a handfull more air.

BREaKING POINTS invites to search for common experience of borderline states, facing the limits, going beyond the line and out of the box there we could realise and understand the nature of the BREaKING POINTS. Thereby we are also reaching out for some pressing questions about ownerships; are these points are social or private, fisical or emotional, are they located and presented by actions or stillness, are they the beginning or the end, are they what remains after everything else disappeared?
We invite you for a honest and truthful response, for the poetic encounter between permanence and impermanence, the moment in that we and everything around collaps.
