Date: April 11, 2011; Source: Performer Stammtisch

In addition to the already announced presentation of Verstilling #3 by Nathalie Fari (www.nathaliefari.com/works/verstilling/) at Performer Stammtisch this Monday, 11th of April we welcome Gabriela Aldrete. In a performance lecture Gabriela gives an introduction to her work In Situ - just like Verstilling a performance series. 
Nathalies and Gabrielas work both use in ways reduction as approach and - though both following very individual approaches - seem to be a good match for an exchange about artistic strategies regarding site specific work, work in progress and much more.

 All this is happening in a space at Flutgraben that opens its doors for Stammtisch for the very first time. Come see another highly interesting space for the arts!



Flutgraben e.V., Am Flutgraben 3 - 12435 Berlin (U Schlesisches Tor, S Treptower Park). From the front door on follow the signs! Doors open at 19.30, the performance begins roughly around 20.00.
 Admission: EUR 2,00



And don't forget to check out THE MONTH OF PERFORMANCE ART.
 This May 2011 will be the Month of Performance Art.



Performer Stammtisch will contribute with the regular Stammtisch in May with live work presented by Margaret Dragu and Steffi Weismann. In addition Performer Stammtisch plans two extra events: a video screening with performance art documentation and a night at Flutgraben with performance art open to everybody who is willing to present.



If you are interested - and we highly recommend you to take a chance and benefit from the extra attention! - we take in proposals until mid April. Date for submissions of videos and/or final confirmation of performances at the Stammtisch events is as well April 15th.

4. EVENT: Can you hear me? Oui, je t'entends là. Ja sóc online :)
Date: April 15, 2011; Source: Ariadna Rodriguez

Adina Bier, from Berlin
Anne Lise Le Gac, from Paris
Ariadna Rodriguez, from Barcelona

On real time. For the duration of 1 week, the 3 artists will from their cities, Berlin, Paris and Barcelona, will exchange experiences based on their atmospheric and aesthetical surrounding influences, via drawings, texts, pictures, videos, music, movements and chats on the Internet. The traces of their interactions over the week, will be the foundation and construction of their virtual performance at ‘Experimentem amb
l’ART’, Barcelona (Spain).

As a collaborative trio that is sustained via the cyber world, we made the conscious decision to challenge the notion of ‘live performance’ through this technology to amplify our distance and space. We want to explore the technological surrounding: the evidence that technological interfaces and gestures are tested and reconsidered provoking new reactions facing the global ‘machine’. What interests us, is the performative element to daily behaviors that exists within today’s social norms: the pictorial distorted face that we have on the skype video, the new physical gestures we created to adapt to the machine, the ‘decalé’ between sounds and also voices online... How we express ourselves when talking to the machine?

BIO
The three international female artists, Ariadna Rodriguez Cima (Spain), Anne Lise Le Gac (France), and Adina Bier (USA), first met in 2006 at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (USA) and started to work together in 2007. For four years, they have been collaborating and performing together in United States (Mobius Space and SMFA), Germany (Kunsfabrik and Schloss Brollin) and France (Le Centre Socioculturel Madeleine Rebérioux, La Maison des Jeunes et de la Culture du Mont-Mesly and Petit Théâtre de la Friche). Annually, within the Platform of Young Performance Artists in Berlin, they develop a research project that ends in a public performance. In the
Fall of 2010, they organized their first Performance Art Festival, called Performance Art Salon, that incorporated four other European performance artists and took place at ‘La Fundició’ in Barcelona, Spain.

WHAT: Performance ¨Can you hear me? Oui, je t'entends là. Ja sóc online :) "
WHEN: Friday April 15th from 8 to 8:45 pm
WHERE: Espai EART, Torrijos 68, 08012 Barcelona, Spain. Metro: Fontana (verda) o Joanic (groga)

5. EVENT: Anyhow Blues Project: Can Cannot Also Can
Date: 15th and 16th April 2011; Source: Lee Wen

Time: 7:30 pm to late
Venue: The Substation, Theatre
Address: 45 Armenian Street, Singapore 179936

Lee Wen makes a full circle with a return to his earliest forays of poetry and singing. Besides the other influences it was through poetry reading and jamming at The Artists Village that started him on the road to performance art and other experimental practices.

Lee Wen’s lyrics are gutsy and poignant, sometimes personal and other times more socially relating to current cultural climate both local and global. Songs like “Art is ...Dead” deliver a punchy tune with simple lyrics warning us of the impending death trivializing our humanity by placing emphasis on market values and mindless consumer tastes for shameless repetition of tested formulas rather than research, innovations and explorations of new ideas or debate on social values.

Zai Kuning guitars
Reef (Under the Velvet Sky) bass
Hafiz Bastard (Pazahora) drums

Program:
Performance by Lee Wen (solo) 7:30pm
Concert: 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Admission: S$10 only
(you are allowed to sneak in free by order of the Anyhow Blues Project after all this is not a Bob Dylan gig!)

6. EVENT: Extension Series 9
Date: April 18-24, 2011; Source: Andrés Galeano

GRIMMUSEUM Berlin, Fichte Str. 2, presents: Extension Series 9
Co-curated by Testing Grounds and Andrés Galeano
 
Focus: Live Art in UK.
BILL AITCHISON – TIM JEEVES
 
Residency: From 18th to 24th April
Performances: 21th April, 19:30 h. (3€ entrance)
Documentation: From 22th to 24th April
Open talk: 24th April 18h. Live Art and its development in UK, with Chistopher Hewitt and Testing Ground.
 
Testing Grounds (UK) and Extension Series are working together to commission artists Bill Aitchison and Tim Jeeves to take part in a residency at GRIMMUSEUM Berlin, to make and present new Live works.

Both Tim Jeeves and Bill Aitchison express the difficulty of understanding in both a literal and metaphysical sense where one is situated, historically, geo-politically and socially in the world nowadays. In both artists work we encounter the dizzying sensation of vertigo – the sense of groundlessness, of the world moving beneath our feet even whilst stationary. This leads both artists use disorientation as an artistic strategy, intentionally going to great lengths to displace themselves; creating semionautical trajectories in relation to time and space; to life and death and to the Other in order to create a shifting multilayered sense of self-awareness and self-identity - in response to the complexity of the world in which they live.

This method of disorientation as an artistic strategy through which to gain new perspectives both for the individual artist and on behalf of the audience takes many different forms - as the artists work in very different contexts in different countries, employing both humour and thoughtful sensibility - But in general through their approach we are reminded of the strategy of the mountaineer who seeking to find the best route up an uncharted mountain, decides to instead to turn around and climb another mountain – knowing that from its peak he will then have the best vantage point to begin to work out the route up the first mountain.

Bill Aitchison recent has thus recently spent time in China learning Mandarin, this experience has focused his self-awareness as a westerner, and through which he is attempting to better understand himself from a Chinese perspective (a dizzying if not impossible task?) and make performances about this in Mandarin. In yet another displacement Aitchison will be developing this for Testing Grounds/Extension Series attempting to realign, retranslate this research for European and German audiences.

Tim Jeeves is writing for 24 hours on the nature of the transience of time, about the impossibility of planting a firm anchor in the present moment, or in relation to the past or future – as he writes “what we worry about often doesn’t come to pass, and what we remember often didn’t happen. We are rarely even certain of that which is around us.” Combining esoteric reflections on our relationship with time with more personal information about his own fight with cancer and conversations with his parents on their view of death – Jeeves will attempt to explore uncertainty.

8. WORKSHOP: THE SIX VIEWPOINTS

Date: April 25 – 29, 2011; Source: Roxanne Angers

 

THE SIX VIEWPOINTS
Teacher: Leslie Baker
April 25-29, 9:30am to 12:30pm
Location: Studio 303 (372 Ste-Catherine W. #303), $75

This workshop will introduce participants to the Six Viewpoints improvisation technique, addressing essential performance concepts such as being present, active listening, spontaneity, and ensemble playing. The Six Viewpoints has become one of the leading performer training techniques in the United States. Growing out of the 1970’s post-modern dance world of New York City, Mary Overlie created the Six Viewpoints by separating live performance into six categories; Space, Shape, Time, Emotion, Movement, and Story (SSTEMS). Theatrical Director Anne Bogart subsequently developed this technique in the 1980’s. Both approaches allow a group of performers to create intuitively, developing performers mental flexibility, emotional articulation, and commitment to physical expression in solo and group work.

11. EVENT: Suzanne Lacy Talk
Date: April 28, 2011; Source: Suzanne Lacy

Suzanne Lacy presents: The University of Local Knowledge
A talk hosted at LACE
(Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions)
Thursday April 28, 7-9 pm
6522 Hollywood Blvd 
Los Angeles 90028

Suzanne Lacy speaks on her recent project in Bristol, England entitled
The University of Local Knowledge, its process of engaging with over 300 Knowle West residents, and screens a selection of video "texts" in this first presentation in Los Angeles.
 
Founded during the great depression in the early 1930's, Knowle West is a small community in the southwestern English city of Bristol. Residents were relocated from run-down council estates (housing projects) to Knowle West to work in surrounding tobacco and bag factories. Eighty years later these factories have been redeveloped into urban lofts, but nearby Knowle West residents face unemployment, stereotyping, and limited access to higher education. Lacy worked with two art organizations in Bristol-the Arnolfini Gallery and the community-based Knowle West Media Center-to produce an art project that brings together three spheres of knowledge: the arts, the university (University of Bristol), and Knowle West Residents.
 
Knowle West Media Center staff and artists worked with Lacy to "map" Knowle West by recording 1,000 video pieces, called "texts" in this project, ranging from 30 seconds to 4 minutes each. Through extensive discourse with community residents, these texts were assembled into categories, or "courses" on a website to portray the "University" through the eyes of its residents.  The site features "courses" on rabbit hunting (animal husbandry), raising children as a teen mom (adolescent psychology), growing organic vegetables (agriculture studies) and how to maintain classic cars (mechanical engineering).
 
The University of Local Knowledge was funded in part by the Department of Cultural Affairs for the City of Los Angeles, The Arnolfini Gallery, and the Knowle West Media Centre.

Jason Lim’s practice transverses ceramics, sculpture and performance art and is regarded as a maverick in the ceramics field, Lim has radically shifted assumptions about ceramics as a discipline, pushing its potential as a media in installation and performance art. Lim’s performances often play on boundaries of risky precarious situations, teasing the audiences with a cheeky use of the materials and spaces. He has participated in various international performance festivals and had taken up residency programs in Japan, The Netherlands, Australia and U.S.A. Lim was involved in initiating “UTOPIA”, an alternative art gallery in 1996 and was co-Artistic Director of Future of Imagination 2, in 2004.

background
Intensified dialogues is investigating the permanent conflicts in our daily life encounters on an emotional and intellectual level. As social beings, we are thinking in categories and classifications, we are consisting of numerous contradictions regarding our personal history and origins. This influences our behaviours and images in encounters with each other. During the workshop we will experience our differences in the ways we are sharing ideas and interests and dealing with conflicts and limitations. This cultural, emotional and aesthetical diversity is seen as a value and a chance to formulate and express individual positions and intensify each individual artistic expression. We will use a variety of techniques and exercises to focus on the perception of our own personality, develop skills to communicate with the body, and transform ideas into a performative work. The main aim of this workshop is to understand our conflictive nature and how we can use it in an artistic way. This PAStudies will be realized as part of the InterAkcje Festival for Performance Art 2011 curated by Arti Grabowski.

Curator and Founder of Visualeyez, Todd Janes states, “Visualeyez 2011 takes a rather different focus, and I am curious how artists are engaging in discourses surrounding worshipping; or executing issues of devotion, contemplation and adoration as a key element in their practices and performances. I am not just curious about spiritual but also commoditization and extremes like obsessions”.

Dear Performance Artists, teachers, travelers and lovers,
Again, this year we are proud to announce another fantastic & unique

IPAH Summercamp 2011 & Platform Young Performance Artists!

Make sure to be there. We have fantastic teachers, fantastic food, a fantastic Festival.
You will spend a fantastic time! DON´T MISS IT!

Important: The Summercamp this year will not happen at Schloss Bröllin! One class will take place at the wonderful location Glogau Air and two classes at the Flutgraben e.V. The teachers this year will be He Chengyao from Beijing, Ray Langenbach from Kuala Lumpur and Jürgen Fritz.

Dates:
17. July: Arrival of participants in Berlin, first dinner and talk about the organization.
18. - 24: workshops
25. - 27: days off, preparing the Plaform
28. - 30: Platform Young Performance Artists at the Flutgraben e.V.
31. July: Departure

Money:
Like in the years before, we hope, that we can offer the Camp for 200, - €. This would include:
-Fee for the teachers
-Simple accommodation on mattresses in a big room together with other participants or private accommodation during the workshop!
-One dinner per day together with all participants from all groups. We are not sure about our funding in the moment, so we don´t know exactly, whether the 200,- are sufficient. We will know soon about that.

Registration
Like in the last year, we have limited places up to 40 participants. So if you would like to participate, please register as soon as possible! Please register via email to summercamp@i-pah.de. You will receive a confirmation email with the information, to which account you should transfer the participation fee. Registration is compulsory if the fee is credited to the account of the IPAH e.V..

Please be aware, that the Platform Festival is not part of the IPAH Summercamp!
Within the 200,- fee there is no accommodation and no food included after July 24th! Of course we will help you to find cheap sleeping places & maybe we can use some of the places from the week before, but we don´t know about that now! Not everybody from the workshop will have the possibility to perform at the Platform Festival! We have to decide about that during the first week! But we are lucky, that we may use 2 floors in the Flutgraben e.V. this year, so the situation will be easier than last year!

Symposium
This year we will have a small symposium about "Teaching Performance Art" organized by Jörn Burmester from the Performer Stammtisch.

Our Partners for the events this summer are:
Performer Stammtisch, Berlin
Flutgraben e.V., Berlin

AND MORE:
Performance-Workshops of Christoph Draeger and Kate McIntosh
Friday 5th – Sunday 7th August 2011
Performance Workshop with Christoph Draeger (New York / CH)
Critical Mass / Critical Mess

Christoph Draeger joined the grassroot movement «Critical Mass» in New York in March 2010 and rides as a white «Ghost Rider» in the bicycle protests almost every Friday. Critical Mass is formed of bicycle activists, who use their rides to fight for more space and fewer cars on the streets of America. The bicycles, painted white and known as «Ghost Bikes», are anonymously chained to public spaces as «makeshift memorials» for injured cyclists.

On the one hand, the workshop aspires to founding a «Critical Mass» in Zurich, and on other hand aims to situate this within a wider performative context: political activism meets performance art. Aside from this, participants should be motivated to develop, present and document their own public-space performance.

Wednesday 10th – Friday 12th August 2011
Performance Workshop with Kate McIntosh (Brussels / New Zealand)
Misuse / Displace – strategies for installation and performance

The focus of this workshop with Kate McIntosh is the further development of her artistic research into metaphors. Kate McIntosh will work with the participants both inside and outside, using interactions with objects, materials and spaces to work on strategies to create metaphorical images and actions. In doing so, objects and materials become actual ‘performers’. They are diverted from their intended use and rearranged so that unexpected and unusual semantic relationships are created in every-day spaces.

Kate McIntosh will refer to two of her own works as examples – the stage piece «Dark Matter» and the video installation «De-Placed» (together with Eva Meyer-Keller). The ideas and strategies presented in the work with objects should serve as practical tools and as a basis for further research and work, either in groups or individually.

The workshops are aimed at artists and students from all areas of visual and performance art, as well as related areas.

Registration in writing or via email to the address below:
Short CV (bullet points). Don’t forget your address, telephone number and email.
Short letter of application: Why do you want to take part in the workshop?
