FADO Performance Art Centre presents:

Quatre re-traités* tiré de '"ils" "viennent" : Khédive et Mamelouk, en un seul, sur son patron (work-in progress)

By André Éric Létourneau

187 Augusta Avenue, Toronto

PWYC

 

Quatre re-traités* tiré de '"ils" "viennent" : Khédive et Mamelouk, en un seul, sur son patron (work-in progress) is a psychogeo(hörspiel) performance involving radio transmission, narration and action, with a simultaneous translation from French to English and/or Italian. Psychogeo(hörspiel) is a neologism created by combining 'psychogeography' meaning an approach to geography that emphasizes playfulness and drifting around urban environments; and the German word 'hörspiel' meaning radio-play or radio-drama. This performance is part of a work-in-progress by Letourneau entitled, "ils" "viennent" : Khédive et Mamelouk, en un seul, sur son patron, which is a 3-hour site-specific text-based science-fiction conceptual performance that can be performed for any media. This version included participation by Toronto performers (such as Claude Wittmann), and on recorded media by Alice Lafontaine, Alexandre St-Onge, Marie Brassard and Jac Berrocal.

 

The audience is encouraged to bring portable radios or walkman radios so they can leave the gallery and move around the neighbourhood during the action, picking up snippets of the narrative remotely.

2. EVENT: Bare Bones Unbound by Sam Galarza and Nat Tremblay

Date: August 1, 2013; City: New York, USA; Source: Nat Tremblay

 

A new conceptual performance piece by Sam Galarza & Nat Tremblay

 

Thursday, August 1st, 7:30pm at Dixon Place on the main-stage as part of the HOT! Festival's 22nd annual NYC Celebration of Queer Culture.

 

"Bare Bones Unbound" is a deep, intimate unfurling of the intricate layers that inform our identities, framed by the lens of gender and sexuality. The audience will witness a synchronistic "peeling back" of flesh and spirit. As two veiled bodies tightly bound together are slowly unraveled, stories buried within those bodies are revealed; stories of societal and internalized homo & trans phobias, the strategies we employ in the name of protection, reclaiming our "sexy" in the midst of exotification and sexual abuse, fluidity, fears, desires, deep love and the spaces in which these change or are complicated by our romantic connection to each other. Simply put, it is a performative experiment about what can happen when uninhibited personal reflection is mixed with imagination and a risky determination to unreel every piece, until there is nothing left but bare bones.

 

Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, $10 students / seniors

Schützen

A PERFORMANCE TRILOGY ON BODIES SHAPED BY WEAPONS

A NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE FROM BERLIN

 

Part of the 2013 Summerworks Festival

 

What is the identity of a nation, and at what cost should that identity be preserved?

 

The word “Schützen” in German has an etymological double meaning. On one hand it means someone who shoots. On the other, it means to shield, protect or prevent. In Schützen, Danish performance artist, Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt, examines modern-day war practices based on her own physical research done with American drone pilots in Nevada, Israeli Army troops in Tel Aviv and on a shooting range in Berlin. Schützen investigates the human ability to kill and to ask others to kill, exploring how these practices affect the body, and their physical and psychological consequences.

 

SummerWorks is proud to present the North American premiere of this elegant and poignant work, which premiered at the Sophiensæle in Berlin.

 

CHOREOGRAPHY + PERFORMANCE: Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt

MUSIC AND LIGHT: Matthias Meppelink

SHOW TIMES: Aug 14-16 at 7pm & Aug 17 at 2pm

12. WORKSHOP: Public Space Action Art Lab with Eric Létourneau

Date: August 17, 2013: City: Toronto, Canada; Source: Claude Wittmann

 

Public Space Action Art Lab: physical body and radio body

One-day workshop with Eric Létourneau from Montréal

 

ONE DAY ONLY!

August 17, 2013

10am – 6pm

City Hall, Toronto

$60

 

Registration: please send an email to

Claude Wittmann at clowittmann@gmail.com

and to Eric Létourneau at andreericletourneau@gmail.com

 

For this workshop, Létourneau will gradually combine work on dreams and work with radio transmission in the public space. He will draw from performance art approaches and from his interdisciplinary experience and, he will facilitate the development by the participants of methodologies of creation that are specific to the public space. 

 

Létourneau will bring a variety of exercises which will invite the participants in different modalities regarding the use of time, the use of space and the quality of presence during actions. 

 

Night dreams will be used as a material to inform the first actions of the participants. Participants will be invited to write down their dreams before and during the workshop. Some of these dreams will then be deployed in the space of the studio and explored in real-time through sensations and images. Elements of them will be brought in the realm of action. 

 

Later, the participants will have access to a radio FM transmitter broadcasting in the public space around the studio. At this point, the participants will have the opportunity to explore new territories of presence, other layers of meaning and also a disembodied performative experience as radio transmission often generates the sensation of having another invisible body through the physical action of broadcasting. This second body then evolves in the immateriality of the public space and becomes a new research field for the participants.

 

Bio

André Eric Létourneau is a performance artist, storyteller, radio art creator and author working with an interdisciplinary process. Since the 1990s and 2000s, he regularly participates in international festivals and events across the world.

16. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Fifteenth Nihilist Film Fest

Deadline date: September 15, 2013; City: LA, USA; Source: Elisha Shapiro

 

The 2013 Nihilist International Film Festival announced that it is looking for short

videos for this year’s program. Festival Director Elisha Shapiro says, “I think the name says it all. It’s the Nihilist Film Festival for god’s sake. Herisy, tastelessness, offensiveness…you get the idea.” If you are a filmmaker who wants to be part of the fun, Shapiro hopes you will send your entry to the fifteenth edition of the Nihilist Film Festival. The festival will be presented in December in Los Angeles.

 

There are no fees for entrants, and modest prizes will be awarded, thanks to a grant from the Cactus Foundation. “The judges are capricious, but if you can make then laugh at the pointness suffering and idiocy of our species, you’re on the right track.” Explained Shapiro. Submissions must be shorter than 30 minutes and should be submitted on DVD.

 

The deadline for entries is September 15. Send all submissions to: Nihilist Film Festival, Box 36422, Los Angeles, California 90036. More information is available at the Nihilists’ Corner web site, http://nihilists.net/film.html. Questions can be emailed to nihilist01@aol.com.

 

The Nihilist Film Festival is produced by Los Angeles conceptual artist Elisha

Shapiro. Shapiro is known for presenting the 1984 Nihilist Olympics and the 1999 Nihilism Expo. He was also the Nihilist Party candidate for Governor of California in 2006, President in 1988, and for LA county sheriff in 1992. So he’s not to be trifled with.

17. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The 8 Fest 2014

Deadline date: September 30, 2013; City: Toronto, Canada; Source: 8 fest

 

INTRODUCTION

The 8 fest seeks your 8mm, Super-8, 9.5mm or other small gauge film projects (such as loops and installations) for our 2014 edition next January.

 

Films can be:

-Experimental, animated, personal, handmade

-Diary and essay films, documentaries

-Live performance and music mixed with film

-Films from everyday culture - historical footage, home movies

 

The 8 fest exhibits all work on film. Works selected for the festival, therefore, must be finished on small-gauge film (8mm, Super-8, 9.5 mm). We do not exhibit projects on video or digital.

 

The 8 fest uses professional small-gauge projection equipment including Elmo GS-1200 and ST-1200 models. Our technicians and programmers have many years experience specializing in small-gauge film formats and technology. The greatest care will be taken in handling, previewing, and projecting films.

 

Submission forms online at http://www.the8fest.com

DEADLINE: September 30, 2013

 

GUIDELINES:

No Submission Fee!

-First-time filmmakers, youth & under-serviced communities welcome!

-Submissions can be sent either on film or on a preview copy in DVD, mini-DV or VHS formats or by link to online video (sorry we can't accept video files by email or file transfer at this time  PLEASE NOTE: Exhibition on film only.)

-Submissions can also be sent online on VIMEO. Mpeg 4, or similar formats.

-Our New Works program is limited to work from the past 5 years, but we’re always curious to include older work in other programs. Please fell free to get in touch if you have older work you think we would be interested in.

 

Due to time constrictions, our programming committee requests that artists restrict themselves to two submissions at the most. Please send us what you consider your best!

-Please include film/project description, artist bio and filmography.

-Artist fees (screening fees) paid to all selected films/projects.

- pplication requires the film/project be available for exhibition in Toronto late-January 2014 - Sound on film, separate sound CD/cassette and live performance/narration can all be done. For separate or “wild” sound, please record the soundtrack so that it cues at first image, or provide clear instructions as to when to start the sound.

-Please note that the 8 Fest will screen what is sent to us. The leader with the film will be removed, unless the leader is itself part of the film. The 8 Fest’s projectionist assembles the accepted films into sequenced programmes, so applicants should make it clear where the projectionist can or should cut.

-Please be aware that spliced edits should be as clean as possible. What projects smoothly on one projector may not project so smoothly on another projector.

-MP3, AIFF, WAV, or other compressed audio (sound) files can be sent by email. Cueing instructions should be included and clearly stated. Audio cues can start sooner, like before first image, as long as projectionist knows when to start the film. Filmmakers with separate sound should not expect exact audio synchronisation with their picture.

-For installations or performances: Please include detailed technical requirements and any equipment needs. We have limited resources for non-projection equipment (e.g. lights, multiple mics, etc.) - the more information the better!
