Cantastoria: A Drawn Opera

By Vida Simon

 
Friday August 27 @ 7:30pm

Saturday August 28 @ 7:30pm

Sunday August 29 @ 7:30pm


Location: 141A Ann St. (between Ottawa & Wellington), Griffintown

An old stable. The audience enters at dusk. A room within a room. A row of women working at a table. A lightbox projecting textures, spectres, elderstories. A figure seen handling a tree in a jar. The smell of spices coincides with a certain sound and we all climb down.

Cantastoria explores the intersections of drawing and performance, through the layering of live presence and projected tableaux. The piece unfolds around an architectural structure I climb onto and inside of to animate drawings and shadow play. From this shelter narratives are recounted, imagined, or uttered in another language. Cantastoria is the culmination of years of research that began with the serendipity of encountering two different, yet related Malinas: the first Malina is a novel by the Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann; the second Malina is the word for confined spaces where Jews hid in Lithuania during WWll. This performance combines sources from history, literature, and personal archaeology, transposing these various strands to the contemporary context of a building we could call a relic.

performers: Soufïa Bensaïd, Rachel Echenberg, Lou Nelson, Victoria Stanton, and Vida Simon

6. CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Platform Residency 2011
Deadline date: August 31, 2010; Source: Platform

 

PLATFORM RESIDENCY 2011
Dear colleagues and possible future collaborators,

Platform announces an open call for an artist residency in Vaasa, Finland. 2-3 international and 2-3 Baltic or Nordic artists will be accepted for the period starting February 2011 till the end of February 2012.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS 31st AUGUST 2010

In recognition of a milestone year (2000–2010) of creating an open cultural platform for artist residencies, international networks, cultural interventions and contemporary art events, Platform responds to past experiences by initiating a theme “TO HAVE / TO OWN” for future activity orientation.

In order to react on the present cultural situation, in which it is recognized that art as well as other cultural areas during the last years has gone through significant social, cultural, economic and ecological change, Platform calls for a reaction to conceptions of having and owning. The presumption is that paying close attention to interests that culture and individuals have when referring to having and owning will raise dialogues on issues such as: cultural heritage, aesthetic and ethic values, immaterial/material resources, networking, nomadic movements, communication, alienation, independence, sustainability, education etc.

Platform encourages art projects that take a self-directed orientation to the theme. The focal point for the initiative is to generate conditions for artists to engage in local and international contemporary art based interventions that perform interpretation zones in which past, present and future human conditions are examined.

THE PROGRAM
Annually 5-6 artists are invited, normally about 2 months, to realize a project. The residency offers accommodation, a studio, covered travel expenses, a monthly grant as well as a production budget.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE
An application consisting of a motivation letter/project proposal, documentation of 5 projects and a cv + the period preferred – all included in one document (.pdf or .doc) no bigger than 1MB, to be sent electronically to info@platform.fi during August, but no later than 31.8.2010.

For closer details on the application procedure and the program, please consult our web-page: http://www.platform.fi/residency.html

The residencies are made possible by the support of:
NORDIC CULTURE POINT
SWEDISH CULTURAL FOUNDATION
ARTS COUNCIL OF FINLAND

7. CALL FOR PERFORMERS: The Apology Project (Düsseldorf)

Date: September 3, 2010; Source; Maria Legault

 

reinraum e.V, in Düsseldorf, Germany,  is looking for performers to participate in Canadian artist Maria Legault’s artwork entitled The Apology Project.

 

The Apology Project requires a cluster of people to wear large brown paper bags over their torsos, congesting the entrance to the gallery space, and personally apologizing to every person who ventures through them. This human blockade will disrupt the regular flow of traffic during the evening of the opening.

 

The performance will run on Friday September 3rd from 8 to 10 pm. No previous performance experience is required.

 

To volunteer, please contact Tiff Izsa at: Tiff@Izsa.com

8. EVENT: Extension Series 5

Date: August 30 – September 5, 2010; Source: Andrés Galeano

 

EXTENSION SERIES 5 with Márcio Carvalho and Elisa Haug

Curated by Andrés Galeano

 

30 AUG - 5 SEPT.

PERFORMANCES: 3 SEPT. 19:30 h

PERFORMANCE ART JUKEBOX: 5 SEPT. 19:00 H. BY CHRISTOPHER HEWITT

 

For the fifth Series of Extension, Andrés Galeano invites an interesting combination of two young artists based in Berlin: the Portuguese Márcio Carvalho and the German Elisa Haug. Both performance artists work with a variety of media. During their Extension residence they will show how they include other disciplines – like video, installation, painting and sculpture – within a performance, as well as their particular manner to transform daily rituals into an artistic experience.

 

Marcio Carvalho born 1981 in Lagos (Portugal). He works as an artist, researcher and curator in the field of performance art, video and photography. Since 2009 Márcio Carvalho is the curator of the artist residence program Hotel25 in Berlin, the director and curator of the Performance festival “PLOT in Situ” in Berlin and the director and producer of the TV show “The powers of art”. He graduated in ESAD - Escola Superior de Arte e Design in Caldas da Rainha (Portugal) with a degree in Visual Arts.

 

Marcio’s work is based on physical and theoretical research of concepts such as memory and mechanical, cultural, social and political structures. In a final stage of his works, poetry and metaphor are the forms that he uses to built his actions and performances. The artist works relies on its multidisciplinary ability of crossing disciplines. He believes that video, photography, painting, sculpture and theater play many different roles in his performances. “This art fields are tools to be used in performance actions and to be forgotten as individual disciplines”.

www.marciocarvalhoartwork.blogspot.com

 

Elisa Haug was born in 1976 in Lindau (Germany). She studied at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design and at the Berlin University of the Arts. In 2005 she received a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for postgraduate studies in Ljubljana (Slovenia). Since 2010 the studio support program of the Berlin Senate supports her work.

 

“In my artwork I always try to bring up and deal with a subject in an intermediate way of working. Often my approach is like an investigation. I combine painting, drawing, installation and performance. I thereby deal with topics like identity in relation to culture, society, civilization, clichés, habits and history. Also I examine my own existence in relation to these issues” www.elisahaug.de

 

Christopher Hewitt has been involved in area of performance art for the past 20 years, working as a curator, teacher, facilitator and very occasionally as a performance artist himself. For nearly 10 years he was based in London where, amongst other things, he ran his own performance art venue ‘Hollywood Leather’ and worked as the Director of Live Art at the Institute of Contemporary Arts. In 1999 he went on to set up a performance art degree programme in Turku, Finland. Over the past four years he has worked as the producer for the Norwegian performance theatre group ‘Baktruppen’. He is currently resident in Berlin from where, since January 2006, he has been publishing 'liveartwork DVD', a quarterly collection of performance art video documentation.

 

The Performance Art Jukebox playlist features around 200 videos including work by artists such as: Annie Sprinkle, Franko B, Denis Oppenheim, Chris Burden, Gilbert & George, Lone Twin, Hermann Nitsch, John Bock, Spalding Grey, Roi Vaara, Alistair McLennan, Gary Stevens, Baktruppen and many others.

 

You are invited to come and enjoy a drink, a chat and select an interesting video clip from the Performance Art Jukebox. Christopher will be on hand to give background information about the artists and work.

The submitted projects should be characterised by an open or restrained passion for exploring the city environment and the river.
