3. EVENT: frisch eingetroffen (just in)

Date: July 6-7, 2012; City: Mannheim, Germany; Source: Andrés Galeano

 

frisch eingetroffen (just in)
platform for young performing arts
6 & 7 July 2012 

 

Seven pieces of young talents from across Europe at "frisch eingetroffen" (just in) festival:

 

Aline Benecke (“picture this…Orientalism at its best”) makes up her Oriental roman-fleuve. Andrés Galeano (“Cue&Review”) draws inspiration from songbirds. Costas Kekis and Eve Chariatte (“Ultra XYX”) wear queer costumes on a delicate set, while Hendrik Quast and Maika Knoblich (Trauer tragen) wear mourning. Markus Keim and Beate Hecker go on "Terrain Vague" looking for the gaps in human perception and Irene Accardo, IVONA Sijakovic bring the past into the present in "2111 - a time capsule", to obliterate it there permanently. Peter Mills and Julia Hannukainen finally get a DVD with an enigmatic note saying "No choice, don't of watch this".

 

http://www.zeitraumexit.de/programm/frisch-eingetroffen-6
 
Seven brand new productions, selected from 120 submitted works, show a cross-section of current developments in the performing arts. As usual only new productions shown - some premiere at 'frisch eingetroffen', some ‘work in progress’ is to be seen for the first time. As organizer, one needs some courage not to develop a programme focusing on the 'usual suspects' of the scene, but on the young artists. But courage is rewarded with wonderful discoveries year after year. In this respect, we look forward to two days brimful with theatre, dance and performance. And of course to you meeting our invitation and enjoying two festival days together.   
  
With kind regards from the curators,
Gabriele Oßwald, Wolfgang Sautermeister and Tilo Schwarz

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

 

Ben Puah

Ben Puah is a new breed of contemporary Asian artists who's made a huge impact with his energy and vision. A self-confessed mentally "乱七八糟" artist of ‘crazy artworks’, Ben creates shocking and powerful works that refuse to fit into the mainstream.

 

Art is very important to Ben because it is a way of expressing oneself and an abstraction of how he feel about life. His works are like in the state of phantasmagoria where there is a mix of real and imagined elements. At the psychological level, he seemed to suffer from paranoid personality disorder and have a negative view about the world, and is quietly frantic at the same time. This resulted in the penetration of unsettled emotions where his art seems temperamental with an erratic behavior that tells the honest truth to his audience.

 

Ben has exhibited his works in Singapore, Australia, Germany, Japan, USA, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil, London, Malaysia, Abu Dhabi and China. His artwork is in the public and private collections in numerous local and international locations. Ben has also conducted workshops in many schools and art institutions.

http://www.benpuah.com/

 

Visual and performance independent artist. 1983 started art education at the ceramics school of Manises, after he moves to San Francisco and attended SFAI around a year, never officially inscribed, he backs to Spain, and he finished Fine Arts university in Valencia, and later on he graduates at The Gerrit Rietveld Academie of Amsterdam at 2001. He has been made around 90 offcially colectives events (mostly performance) 6 solo shows under Carlos Llavata´s name.

 

He is cooperating with some galleries and projects around the world, Mirta Demare (ARCO 2010) Rotterdam, Art Amsterdam 2011 (Artkitchen Gallery), "Splattered" Golden Threat Gallery Belfast, Sign in Groningen, Zé dos Bois, Lisbon,La Pieza, Madrid, Artpotheek Brussels, Lost Generation Space, Kuala Lumpur, MY, Pensart Madrid, ES

Li Cassidy-Peet is an artist from London now resident in Singapore since 2005.

 

Born in West Germany, of dual parentage Russian and Montenegrin. She studied Fine Art at Goldsmith's College, University of London and Theater Studies at NW5 Theater School, London. Cassidy-Peet works in mixed media from performance, installation, sculpture, drawing and slide shows with the use of ready mades, commonly available and industrial materials. Her interest in human behavior/ mind space, can be seen through out all her work practice. In her performances "uncomfortable states of mind" are explored from the biographical to contemporary life. She has shown in London, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bandung. http://licassidypeet.com

 

Born in Spain 1978, Mariona holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, where she also teaches art currently writing her doctoral thesis, the issue is on the way of pictorial experience and contemplative experience, lead to the same experience, toward unity. She has performed solo and group exhibitions in Europe, South America and also in Singapore last year, during their residence invited by Jason Wee Grey Projects

 

R.I.T.E.S. is an artists-initiative organised as a non-profit event to platform new ideas and artists in sonic art, time-based and performance art-related practices. Its objectives are to present an eclectic mix of performances that is informed by visual aesthetics, technological integration and conceptual integrity involving art making and the social and cultural contexts that are related to performances. It explores art activities that are spatial, the way in which performance is linked to cultural, ethnic and geographical elements of the body, and at the same time exploring how all these elements can be bounded to the global, technological, cultural and economic shifts in our daily life.

Date: July 14, 2012; City: Toronto, Canada: Source: Claudia Wittmann

 

Dear Friends,

I have had the impulse to organize another evening of performances at my place and I am honoured to host two performances by dear friends.....Paul Couillard and Ed Johnson will perform Duorama #111 and Simla Civelek will perform a solo.

 

July 14, 2012 - 8pm sharp
17 Paton Road, Unit 6, Toronto

Her work has been exhibited at the 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art, Nuit Blanche in Toronto, Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, B.C and OPEN Performance Art Festival in Beijing, China among other venues. She is based in Toronto.

For the last eleven years Paul Couillard and Ed Johnson have worked together on the series "Duorama". Duorama explores notions of relationship. Playful, beguiling and often minimalist, these pieces draw on collaborative and competitive tensions that underlie all partnerships. Over 100 Duorama performances have been presented at galleries and festivals in Canada, France, Poland, Croatia, Ukraine, Belarus, Finland, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, the USA and Singapore.

Saturday July 21 & Sunday July 22, 2012
1pm – 5pm
$200.00

Situated in the natural surroundings of Gibraltar Point, this two-day intensive workshop explores the relationship between body art and performative photography. During the first day, participants will engage in performance art and live art exercises that are designed to connect body and mind. As part of the workshop, staff will photograph the performances at the end of day one and offer the images to each participant. On the second day, participants will carry forward the experiences from the performance art workshop into hands-on photographic explorations. Body and spirit are delved into through technical and expressive use of light, composition and the camera. Photographic experience is not necessary.

Dates: July 29-August 3, 2012; City: Toronto; Source: Johannes Zits

 

WORKSHOP: Intensive Performance Art Workshop with Rachel Echenberg

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

PLACE: 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.

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

Background Information

IPAH is an organization of artist and students of performing arts that aims at bringing together performance artists from all over the world in order to encourage the exchange with and learning from each other. Like the years before, we cooperate in the organization of a Performance Summer Camp, where young performance artists can meet and work together for one week with internationally known artists from whose knowledge and experience they can learn in workshops and discussions. 

 

In 2012 IPAH was divided in IPAH e.V. (International Performance Association Hildesheim) still based in Hildesheim and IPA (International Performance Association), again initiated by Jürgen Fritz and now based in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. IPA (Frankfurt) will organize in Future the IPA Summercamp and the ZOOM! Festival. 

 

The IPA Performance Summer provides a platform for young performance artists and students of performance art. No matter whether you are already advanced within your performance practice or you are just taking your first steps in live art - the camp will offer you a unique opportunity: further develop your individual artistic work in workshops with experienced performance artist and exchange and discuss your ideas with other young emerging artists.

 

Until 2011 we have organized 6 Camps, beginning in 2006. The following artists been invited for teaching:

 

Boris Nieslony Germany 2006

Jürgen Fritz Germany 2006

Alastair MacLennan Ireland 2007

Monali Meher India 2007

Adina Bar-On Israel 2008

Arti Grabowski Poland 2008

Valerian Maly Switzerland 2009

Klara Schilliger Switzerland 2009

Bartolomé Ferrando Spain 2010

Kira O`Reilly UK 2010

Chengyao He China 2011

Ray Langenbach Malaysia 2011

 

About 210 participants from 27 countries all over the world have taken part so far.

 

We try to offer the camp as cheap as possible, because we want to make it possible for everybody to take part. (In 2011 we charged 200, - € for workshop fee, accommodation and food during the workshop). 

 

We can also help if the participants need official invitations to apply for travel support.

 

Platform Young Performance Artists was initiated in 2010 as a collaboration of Performer Stammtisch (www.performerstammtisch.de) and IPAH e.V. (www.i-pah.de), in cooperation with Flutgraben e.V. (www.flutgraben.org) both from Berlin/Germany. Its major interest lies in giving young performance artists as well as interested people the opportunity to get to know the variety of approaches in performance art, to explore their own artistic practice and language, and to get into exchange with other young and professional, well-known performance artists across the world.  In 2010 and 2011, Platform Young Performance Artists took place in Berlin and was co-organized and hosted by Flutgraben e.V.

13. WORKSHOP: PAS #27

Date: August 13-26, 2012; City: Berlin, Germany; Source: PAS

 

In cooperation with Grimmuseum Berlin (http://grimmuseum.com/)

 

Deadline for applications: 1st of August 2012

Early bird price: by confirmed registrations before the 15th of July 2012

 

We are happy to announce the cooperation with the performance art photographer and teacher of photography at the Art Academy Karlsruhe Pietro Pellini (DE) (http://art.pietropellini.com/), the art historian and teacher Dr. Irene Müller (CH) and Dr. Karmenlara Ely (USA) Associate Professor and Artistic Director of the acting department at the Norwegian Theatre Academy in Fredrikstad, Norway. They will introduce their work and take part as visiting lecturers in PAS #27.

 

Concept

"I began to pull my dress all the way up so my toes were showing. Then I took the jar… [and]… there was a bird inside (alive).”

 

What remains is the memory of presence. A memory leaves an imprint in or on our mind and body. It becomes an identification and recall of objects, places and exchange of individual or collective stories. Imprints are traces and visualizations, written by experiences in our lives. What remains is unique and not repeatable.

 

We think and feel in pictures, in remembrance and imagination. But we quickly reach a border if we try to grasp just one single moment in every aspect, full size. A specific smell, a tiny sound, an unexpected movement or a spatial feeling, everything what creates our perception is hardly to shape in an image.

 

Within the use of Photography in Performance Art, both Medias are able to interact directly with the audience and can change the perception of perspectives, motions and emotional states. Both Medias uses different strategies, but in the ideal case, they are both close to grasp the essence of this blank space – the essence of a moment.

 

PAS#27 After Image is searching within the intersection between Photography as one aspect of documentation and Performance Art as an ephemeral art practice. With this discourse we want to take part in the running discussions about documentation, preserving and archiving the relics of Performance Art pieces. The aim of this 12 days study is to work out a performance, to present this as part of the final presentation in the Grimmuseum and reflect on how we document this art pieces.
