5. EVENT: 10th Art Action Festival Harta Performing Monza

Date: June 7-9, 2012; City: Monza, Italy; Source: Nicola Frangione

 

10th ART ACTION FESTIVAL
“HARTA PERFORMING MONZA”
International Performance Art

Sala Convegni -Teatrino della Villa Reale di Monza
7 - 8 - 9 June 2012

H.P.M. Art Director: Nicola Frangione

Performance Art  & Action Poetry
Over the past 40 years, Action Art found fertile fields of confluence between the experimentation on vision and gesture and poetic-visual sound dramaturgy. Most of this research was characterized by the connection between Performance Art, “total poetry” and the nomadism of the performer that restlessly shifts through linguistic fields just like through geographic territories and varied socio-cultural circles. This year Harta Performing stresses the concept of nomadism perceived as the key element in the performer work. In the theoretical intervention opening the fifth edition of the festival, great attention will be given to the dialectic of relationships “between spiritus and corpus, subject and object, imagination and reality, thought and action, private and public, local and global, specific and total, project and performance”. As stated by Giovanni Fontana “on these oppositions, a fluctuating dynamics takes shape, it holds up the energy and matter continuum in which action is strenuously built. The body energy is used to get rid of imposed references and directions and to generate new situations; it continuously breaks the temporary balances and favours the construction of interlinguistic and intermedial systems that influence the dynamics of the elements involved.”


The international festival “ART ACTION - Harta Performing Monza”, is unanimously considered one of the most interesting events in the framework of international Art innovation, is a significant point of reference for cultural exchange. After the success of the previous editions, this year the festival offers to the city of Monza not only a comparison between the new arts but also an opportunity to reflect on one of the most pressing and thrilling issues of the theoretical debate: the meaning and the creation techniques of the “plural work”, true action field of the polyartist, “who can play his cards right between poetry and cinema, theatre and music, dance and visual arts”.

7. EVENT: Lilith Performance Studio at ACTS Festival 2012

Date: June 16-17, 2012; City: Roskilde, Denmark; Source: Lilith Performance Studio

 

Lilith Performance Studio presents 4 long durational performances at 

ACTS- Festival for Performative Art 2012 

Museum of Contemporary Art, Roskilde 

16-17 June 2012 

 

Open hours: Saturday 4pm-8pm, Sunday 3pm-6 pm 

Day ticket: 60 DKK
 

Weekend ticket: 100 DKK
Tickets: BILLETnet or cash at the entrance of Hal 9

Children and students: Free admission 

Place: Hall 9 at Musicon in Roskilde 

 

Lilith Performance Studio presents four long durational performances at the festival for performing arts organized by Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark. 

 

For the second time the Museum of Contemporary Art presents the festival ACTS - Festival for Performative Art. ACTS 2012 will take place in an enormous factory hall at the industrial compound Musicon in Roskilde. With its 1,800 m2 the factory hall creates an impressive setting for the festival, featuring live performances at the intersection of image, sound and performing arts. A special section of the program has been curated by Lilith Performance Studio from Malmo, Sweden, who has specialized in producing performances by visual artists from around the world.  Lilith will present 4 durational set performances that have previously been shown at Lilith Performance Studio between the years 2010-2012. 

 

Einat Amir - Enough About You 

Amir creates a sensuous venue and an observatory for physical encounters, which is controlled by a predetermined template. In the work she explores the meeting as a real action and as an image, from a traditional starting point of two people, face to face. 

 

Tanya Mars - Dulci 

Tanya Mars sits by a festive set table with white tablecloth, 500 plates, candles and 40 beautiful cakes. During a four-hour long process Mars eats the cakes without even once offers the viewers to taste. 

 

Elin Lundgren & Petter Pettersson - HeadHouse 

Without chronological steering the viewer is released free in a labyrinth system of paths and rooms. Fifteen participants are moving in the system’s given framework and staging course of events that could be taken from a bloody dream or a violent and absurd fable. 

 

Morgan Schagerberg - Konservburksdjungeln (The Tin Jungle) 

In a tent-like structure hanging from the ceiling to the floor a scene takes place like a movie that stutters. A man struggles to overcome his obstacles and fears, but his mistake is repeated, again and again, in a loop that never ends.

WORKSHOP: Intensive Performance Art Workshop with Rachel Echenberg

DATES: July 29th – August 3rd (5 days) from 10 to 6 pm

PLACE: Fireplace room, Artscape Gibraltar Point, Toronto Island 443 Lakeshore Avenue, Toronto

COST: $375 ($75 per day x 5 days)

PARTICIPANTS: 10

 

This 5-day intensive workshop is geared to artists who are interested in an exploration of performance art and the creative process, regardless of participants’ usual discipline. Participants will use the body, objects and sites as malleable material that they will construct, expand, invert, reinvent and rediscover within performance actions.

This 5-day intensive workshop is geared to artists who are interested in an exploration of performance art and the creative process, regardless of participants’ usual discipline. Participants will use bodies, objects and sites as malleable material that they will construct, expand, invert, reinvent and rediscover within performance actions.

The workshop will confront the performative gesture from several angles: within the unfolding moment, as a context specific relationship, and as a sensorial image. Notions of presence and invisibility will be explored through live and camera-based actions. Hands-on exercises, thematic discussions, and individual coaching will support the creation of these live works within the setting of Toronto Island. Each day of the workshop will explore different themes that will build upon each other towards a public presentation of participant's work at the workshop's conclusion, Saturday August 4th.

 

Montreal multi-disciplinary artist Rachel Echenberg has been making performance-based work for twenty years. She is continually interested in possibilities for active empathy and how distance and proximity affect exchange with audience and surroundings within the performative act. Her work has been performed, screened and exhibited since 1992 across Canada as well as internationally in Chile, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Morocco, Northern Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland and the United States. http://rachelechenberg.net

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

As there are no bedrooms available at Artscape Gibraltar Point for this time period and the facilities at the residency will be restricted to those staying on the Island, participants should bring their own food to the Island each day. Using a bicycle to get on and off the Island is also highly recommended. 

 

To register contact Anna Sarchami: sarchami_anna@yahoo.ca 

To secure your spot, a $50 deposit is required before July 1, 2012.
