1. EVENT: FADO presents the 2014 Emerging Artists Series: 11:45PM

Date: March 8-29, 2014; City: Toronto, Canada

 

11:45PM

2014 Emerging Artist Series

Co-presented with Xpace Cultural Centre

 

March 8 - 29, 2014

Xpace Cultural Centre

2-303 Lansdowne Avenue, Toronto

 

Durational performance is a mode of live art where the artist works directly with the medium of time. Over the course of hours, days, or longer the performer and the audience can experience a physical, mental, spiritual and/or emotional transformation. Durational performance functions to bring the performer and the audience into the moment; time is made palatable and visceral. Artists like Tehching Hsieh, Alastair MacLennan, and most famously, Marina Abramovic, demonstrate how durational performance art can use mental and physical endurance to challenge the commoditization of art by offering an experience of art that is ephemeral by nature. 11:45PM provides the platform to five emerging artists to create performance art works of long-duration from several hours to several days long.

"Transitory acts" is a platform for exploring body-based and time-based actions by local and international performance practitioners. Designed to happen in different sites of Myanmar throughout the year 2014, the aim of this platform is to encourage creative experimentations as well as conceptual approaches towards contemporary cultural expressions within the local community. For the first episode of "Transitory acts", two women performance artists from Myanmar are included, Phyu Mon, prominent woman contemporary artist and Zoncy, young and promising artist. Whereas Phyu Mon's works focus on issues of identity through the use of different lens-based mediums, Zoncy's physical works mainly deal with gender politics. Another woman artist included is Beate Linne from Germany and her durational performance works are visually and conceptually provoking. Singapore-based Grieve Perspective is an artist collective mainly addressing the issues relating to Singapore's art and history through performance, installation and text. Nyein Chan Su, one of the pioneers of performance art in Myanmar contemporary art scene, is known for his playful mastery of objects, actions and interactions. Another one of the leading figures of performance art in Myanmar, Maung San Oo is, for the first time, collaborating with Nyan Lin Htet from Theatre of the Disturbed for a site-specific performance of exploring the collective memory of the past and mapping(s) of the transitional period itself. Young performance artist Lwin Oo Maung's works can be considered as exploration of routines in everyday life.

March 6: International Women's Day Festival @ Centre for Spanish Speaking Peoples

[2141 Jane St.(by Wilson)] 11:00am FREE

20 minute excerpt of the production

 

ImShift, a visceral dance performance that integrates percussion, installation, projections and theater. We examine the 'shifting' identity of Latin Americans living in the diaspora and the constant re-defining of our relationship to ‘home’ and settlement. This multi-disciplinary performance incites the boundaries and intersections of performance with migration, history and border crossing in the Americas. The performance cast is composed of Latin American artists based in Toronto, Ontario and Oakland, California:

 

Choreography: Victoria Mata (Venezuela-USA-Canada)

Visual Art: Alejandra Higuera (Colombia-USA-Canada)

Dancers: Irma Villafuerte, (El Salvador-Canada) 

Amanda Paixao (Brazil-Canada) 

Victoria Mata (Venezuela-USA-Canada)

Music: Jackeline Rago (Venezuela-USA) & LayLowProductions (Canada-Colombia)

Stage Manager: Janet Romero (Chile-Canada)

Assistant Production: Joanna Duarte Laudon (Poland-Cuba-Canada)

Community Liaison: Allyson Trunzer (Antigua-Barbados-Germany-Canada)

 

We hope to re-mount and share ImShift with our beloved Toronto community, and also engage a younger audience in issues of settlement, Latin American identity, and the arts by offering a free community performance at a local high school.

 

ImShift is a tribute to the multitudes that have crossed borders through the Americas. To the many that have lost their lives in the attempt, to the ones who have rejoined loved ones, to the ones who are forgotten, to the ones we remember, to those whom have risked everything, to those whom have gained it all.

Performance Nå 5

Stiftelsen 3.14

 

Thursday March 6, 2014

7:00 p.m.

 

Performance Art Bergen invites you to an evening of evocative performances by Robert Alda (NO), Sandra Johnston (UK), Pavana Reid (UK / NO) and Joakim Stampe (SE).

 

Robert Alda does not just follow one line of visual language, he’s creating hybrids of all different expressions; performance making actions, interventions, semi theatrical pieces and dialog with the audience. Pavana Reid sees her performance as an experience in the relationship between people, place and time. She chooses actions or create situation to demonstrate her idea as an individual. Sandra Johnston is working in the areas of site-responsive performance actions, video installations and drawing. Her artworks have often proposed alternative approaches to considering the aftermath of trauma, particularly in relation to ideas of location, testimony and empathetic communication. Joakim Stampe is known to consciously expand the palette of materials used in his performances. Going beyond the traditional and more and more banalized materials in performance art, Stampe tries to invent and renew his own immediate world of materials, objects, and how to work with them. His work is very much intuitive and imaginative, although he usually have a story to tell. Whether it is about his own personal background, contemporary politics or both, he creates images of poetry, conceptual but always with an emotional mind.

 

With their diverse backgrounds, extensive national and international experience you do not want to miss these four artists. Common to the four is the use of the body, time and place, and that they create a dialogue between themselves and the audience. Performance Nå 5 is curated by Terese Longva (NO)

 

Performance Art Bergen is supported by the city of Bergen, Arts Council Norway and Nordic Culture Point

5. EVENT: Summoning aesthetics...by Andrew Tay

Date: March 6-8, 2014; City: Toronto, Canada; Source: Videofag

 

March 6-8, 2014

Videofag

187 Augusta Avenue, Toronto

8pm

 

Summoning aesthetics...by Andrew Tay

Created and performed in collaboration with visual artist Francois Lalumiere

 

What are the actions / images / rituals that call forth the idea of summoning? And if we are to execute these without pretense...What are we summoning into the space around us? 

 

What types of spirits / magic / nothingness / can we make happen without knowing what the fuck we are doing?

 

The performance will be an impossible attempt to render intense rituals and spiritual actions superficial, and transform pop culture and trivial actions into a sacred practice. In doing so, what will we make appear in the Videofag gallery space?

7. EVENT: Dissolved – the Uncanny Valley by Florian Feigl and Christopher Hewitt

Dates: March 6-22, 2014; City: Berlin, Germany; Source: Florian Feigl

 

A performance by Florian Feigl and Christopher Hewitt with Julian Maynard Smith/Station House Opera

 

In a videostream between Sophiensaele and a gallery in London an uncanny new space is generated: half there, half not there, caught in a perpetual cross-fade. A door opens wide in London and slams shut in Berlin. A wall exists and doesn’t, putting up an invisible barrier. 

 

Two times three performers bring their bodies and identies into this virtual world. People and objects find they are both one thing and another, sometimes dissolving together to make a third. The audience follows actions and their digital echo on stage and screen at once.

 

For Dissolved, Florian Feigl and Christopher Hewitt collaborate with Julian Maynard Smith of the legendary London performance group Station House Opera. A newly developed video stream technology allows to dissolve both performance spaces in real time. The installation will be open to the public during the day, and can be tried out. You can merge with an international partner, more than 1.000 km away!

 

Performances: Premiere March 6, shows March 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22

20:30h, Tickets 13/8 Euro, book tickets at www.sophiensaele.com or call 030 283 52 66.

9. EVENT: Retrospective of the work of Glenn Lewis

Date: March 8-May 3, 2014; City: Amsterdam, Netherlands; Source: Glenn Lewis

 

Glenn Lewis

8 March – 3 May

Opening: 8 March 5–8 pm

Members preview: 8 March 4 pm

 

With the over-full yet highly concentrated retrospective of Glenn Lewis, Kunstverein continues to highlight distinct practices, trudging along plugging the small holes it encounters on a trajectory in avant-garde art history.

 

This show is many things: ceramic bowls, botany, food preparation, cooking classes, letters, postcards, video, photos, sponge prints, murals, street cleaning, the wrapping of critics, the wrapping of a street corner, Hitler, Flakey, a lily grower, a Kim Chi cook, a dusty worker, Mickey Mouse as Julia Child, Cézanne on his way to shake Manet’s hand and live shark fin synchronized swimming.

 

Glenn Lewis studied ceramics under Bernard Leach, the well-known studio potter whose practice combined Western and Eastern crafts and philosophies. He was co-founder of Vancouver’s first artist-run space, Intermedia, as well as the historic artist-run center, the Western Front, and the live-work production space, New Era Social Club, where events like dinner parties were explored as alternatives to art-making and presenting. 

 

OTHER DATES

 

6 March, 8pm

Glenn Lewis and Luis Jacob in discussion at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam as part of the ongoing lecture series of ArtEZ/Stedelijk entitled “Common Grounds, Common Practices” initiated by the Werkplaats Typografie. 

Free entrance for Kunstverein members. Please RSVP before 6.

March tooffice@kunstverein.nl

 

20 March 10.30 pm

Swim performance at the Zuiderbad swimming pool

Hobbemastraat 26, Amsterdam

 

In 1970 Glenn Lewis created the mail-art exchange group known as the New York Corres Sponge Dance School of Vancouver—part of a network of artists that included General Idea in Toronto, Ant Farm in San Francisco and the New York Correspondence School under Ray Johnson. The NYCSDSOV camouflaged its meetings as performances at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre, featuring synchronized aquatic routines and shark fin swimming caps designed by artist Kate Craig.

 

Through invitation of Kunstverein, Glenn Lewis will be working with local swimmers (artists between the ages of 18 and 40) to create a new shark fin synchronized swim performance. The performance is a tribute but also a reminder of a potentially viable means for artists today to meet and collaborate. 

 

Amsterdam South’s Zuiderbad is housed in building dating from 1897, a former cycling school that was transformed into swimming pool in 1912. The original interior has been maintained and stands as an architectural monument.

FURTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS:

The Kunstverein franchise is growing: Kunstverein Toronto, initiated by artist Kara Hamilton and curator Kari Cwynar, will be operational in early summer 2014. More information at www.kunstverein.ca.

 

Kunstverein attaches two new features to its membership: The Salon Hang is a yearly exhibition open to all and only members. Information and scheduling to follow. The Annual Members’ Meeting is a closed meeting for members only where program and events are discussed openly. The first KVAMM will take place in July 2014. 

 

Kunstverein introduces a new performance festival: The Annual Spring Performance Festival (SPF) is hosted by Galerie Juliètte Jongma and Kunstverein and will start each year on the first day of spring. SPF 2014 will take place on March 20, 21 and 22 and will include Glenn Lewis’s swim performance. 

 

Kunstverein wishes to thank its (Gold) members, Stadsdeel Zuid, the Zuiderbad, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and WT/ArtEZ Institute of the Arts.

10. WORKSHOP: Winter Kinetics with Fiona Griffiths

Date: March 10-April 14, 2014; City: Toronto, Canada; Source: Berenicci Hershorn

 

WINTER KINETICS

6 classes focusing on your shoulder girdle

March 10 - April 14 (6 classes)

Mondays 6:30-8:30pm

Toronto Dance Theatre Studios

80 Winchester St. (Parliament)

Tuition: $115.00, Students: $75.00

 

To register:  filogriff@yahoo.ca

 

The shoulder series will release neck and shoulder tension, improving carpal tunnel syndrome, decreasing upper back pain and minimizing headaches.

 

Kinetics is a lifelong technique for improving alignment, preventing injuries and enjoying increased strength, flexibility and co-ordination. It was created by Elaine Summers of Judson Church Dance Theatre to educate the body/mind and reduce and rehabilitate  injuries. It is an essential tool in connecting with the somato-sensory system and in rejuvenating a performing artist’s body/mind. Kinetics is a sensory experience of weight and tension, which provides an opportunity to explore and develop your unique movement possibilities from release to high velocity and power. Each class consists of exploring a body part using balls and very slow movements leading into sensory moving - encouraging the body and the mind to reconnect and rebalance. This beneficial work is user friendly and with the completion of six (6) classes you will be able to use Kinetics for your everyday needs.

 

Next Kinetic Weekend: May 31 & June 1: focusing on stomach and ribs

 

Fiona Griffiths (RN,MFA,MA) teaches theatre and movement to actors, clowns, and dancers. She is an acclaimed multimedia artist with extensive performing & touring experience in multimedia performance. Fiona has taught in the many university theatre programs including York and Yale Universities and choreographed and coached for many professional theatre and dance companies. Recent projects include coaching for Kemi Collective, Lilia Leon and directing The Spinster Seminars for the Toronto Fringe. As well as running independent workshops, Fiona teaches at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre, The Manitoulin Conservatory for Creation and Performance and Ryerson University. She also has a private practice in CranioSacral Therapy.

He is recognized for his documentary interviews, historical narratives, opera, found footage and camp. His work reflects many of the legal and politically struggles for queers in the 1980s as well as world politics with a strong queer voice.

A new performance by Simla Civelek

IGAC Studio 103. Artscape Youngplace

Simla Civelek (b. 1974, Istanbul, Turkey) is a Toronto based performance artist.

She creates performances that explore alienation, indulgence, memory and examine time’s relativity to emotions. Using the pretext of theatricality, she aims to create a disguise in which representation and reality are juxtaposed and played off each other.

 

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

ACCUMULATION (phase 2) provides an environment to witness the evolution of a space activated by accumulated creative actions. Over the duration of this exhibition, participating artists are given 1 day to create a live-art piece. All evidence from their actions are left behind, challenging the following artists to incorporate these remnants into their own work. Any materials that come into the space must remain until the exhibition closes.

ACCUMULATION (2005-present) is intended to happen in phases. Each phase includes a different grouping of artists in a different space. ACCUMULATION (phase 2) challenges ideas about artist collaboration, and simultaneously creates an innovative exhibition of experiential art documentation.

17. EVENT: Dimanche Rouge: Focus on Norway

Dates: March 19-23, 2014; City: Paris, France: Source: Dimanche Rouge

 

Dimanche Rouge presents FOCUS ON NORWAY, an event introducing a selection of performance artists based in Norway.

 

March 19th, 2014, 7-9pm, Free- Presentation/Performance at Maison de Norvège

March 20th, 2014, 5-10pm, Free- Round Table and Exhibit at Plateforme Gallery

March 23rd, 2014, 5-9pm, 5 Euros- Performances at Le Générateur

 

The Focus series aims to explore the diversity and thrust of performance art internationally. In partnership with PAB (Performance Art Bergen) and Le Générateur, Dimanche Rouge will present a selection of five Norwegian performance artists from Bergen and Oslo, curated by Rita Marhaug and Agnes Nedregard.

 

The five artists Kiyoshi Yamamoto, Anja Carr, Franzisca Siegrist, Rita Marhaug, and Agnes Nedregard, will perform at Le Générateur on Sunday March 23rd, 2014, 5-9pm. 

 

The performances will explore the theme “Civilization and Human Nature.” Since the human body is used as a medium, performance artists tend to improvise and take risks resulting in uncertain and unpredictable actions. These actions emphasize primal, pre–linguistic modes of experience, which point back to nature. The Norwegian performances will explore the tension between the “natural” and “civilized” within human nature.

 

As a preview, Dimanche Rouge will organize two events on March 19th and 20th.

A presentation/performance will take place at La Maison de Norvège on Wednesday March 19th, 2014, 7-9pm. This event is free and open to the public. Artists Anja Carr, Rita Marhaug, and Agnes Nedregard will present at the event.

 

A round table and an exhibit will be held at Plateforme Gallery on Thursday March 20th, 2014, 5-10pm. The round table will run from 5-7pm, followed by the opening of the exhibit at 7pm, showcasing work from the Norwegian artists. Both events will be free and open to the public. Art critic Agnieszka Gratza will moderate the round table with the participation of Norwegian artists Anja Carr, Franzisca Siegrist, Rita Marhaug, and Agnes Nedregard as well as Sigrun Åsebø (University of Bergen / Kunstkritikk), Ásdís Ólafsdóttir (ARTnord), Biño Sauitzvy (Université Paris 8), Manuela Centrone (Corpus in Act), Nadia Vadori-Gauthier (Corps Collectif / Université Paris 8), Opie Boero Imwinkelried and Oscar Mac-Fall (Dimanche Rouge).

 

In 2015, Dimanche Rouge and PAB will present a selection of French artists in Norway.

ACTUS II: Performance Art event in Frameries

Fully dedicated to Performance Art, ACTUS events are an opportunity for an encounter between performance artists who are active on the stage of contemporary art and the audience. Ephemeral, Performance Art is a unique experience of sharing time, space, action. It happens only once and is based on the actual presence of the various protagonists. The actions proposed by performers are generally plastic, non-theatrical, without artifice or effects control. They leave the viewer the freedom of a subjective reading.

 

The first edition of ACTUS has set up this project as a privileged platform for experimentation and reflection on this artistic movement. It was held at Les Brasseurs (Liege) in February 2012 and organised by Ricochets in collaboration with the University of Liege. Five artists from Germany and Belgium presented their work in a solo and "Open Session" (collective improvisation Performance Art), see the following link for more details.

http://culture.ulg.ac.be/jcms/prod_918147/dossier%20/%20the%20-art-%20performance%20-%20the%20-place-%20of%20-%20viewer

 

For ACTUS II, 8 artists and one philosopher will unpack their luggage at the Fabrique of Frameries and exchange their practices for two weeks. This collective residence will lead to a public presentation on March 22nd 2014.

21. OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS: Film & Video Performance

Deadline date: May 30, 2014; City: Cyprus, Greece; Source: Christina Georgiou

 

The call for entries opens on 1 March 2014.

The deadline of submissions is 30 May 2014.

Theme: “Site-specific”

 

Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF), announces an Open Call to artists to submit film and video performances for the Screening Program of the festival. We are interested in works in the form of video and film that focus on site-specific performances created for the camera. The premiere screening of the selection will take place at the 2nd Cyprus International Performance Art Festival in Nicosia – Cyprus, after which the works will tour a number of countries around the world.

 

The first Performance Screenings (2013) was a selection of video performances, films and video documentation of performances presented during the 1st Cyprus International Performance Art Festival, organized and produced by the Cyprus International Performance Art Society (CIPAS). The second Performance Screenings (2014) will be a selection of films and videos where live performance is created for the camera.

 

Performance art is frequently created to exist in a certain place, forming a specific context of time and space while creating several ephemeral moments. The artist uses his/her body to transmit an idea or to reveal an image, constructed through the relationship between himself/herself and the space or place. A site-specific performance can be collective, impulsive, unpredictable and evolving, where the artist and the viewer can be engaged within its environment. Therefore, through the presence of the artist, the existing space/place can be experienced in another way, while communicating other possibilities in understanding reality.

 

We are looking for video and film performances in which “site-specific” has an essential part, where public spaces, places and landscapes are selected in an effort to present or suggest the live and the ephemeral through video and film. The open call for the screenings selection of the 2nd Cyprus International Performance Art Festival is for recent video works (between 2010-2014). The duration of the video works is preferably 1–5 minutes and the maximum allowed duration of the videos is 12 minutes. Each submission must include the name of the artist, the title of the performance, the duration of the video, the place where the original performance took place and the date of its realization. Each artist/group can submit up to 2 works.

 

More info about submitting a work, here: www.cipafestival.com/?wp=open-call

 

The Cyprus International Performance Art Festival (CIPAF) is the first and only festival in Cyprus created for and dedicated exclusively to Performance Art. Every year this innovative performance art festival accommodates a number of performance artists from around the globe while presenting their work under a specific thematic.

 

For further instructions on your submission and technical support please contact MOVIBETA by email: info@movibeta.com

 

For general questions on submission, please contact CIPAF by email:

Selected artists will be contacted by email latest on 8 June 2014.

Thank you very much for your submission and we wish you a good luck!

22. CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Savvy Contemporary

Date: unspecified; City: Berlin, Germany; Source: Savvy

 

“The more radical possibility is that they [the performances themselves] may not even depend on whether the event actually happened. It may well be that our sense of the presence, power, and authenticity of these pieces derives not from treating the document as an indexical access point to a past event but from perceiving the document itself as a performance that directly reflects an artist’s aesthetic project or sensibility and for which we are the present audience.”

-Philip Auslander. PAJ 84 (2006), pp. 1–10.1

The Performativity of Performance Documentation

 

Our archive collects and organizes documentation of performing and performance art in different media: photography, video, text and physical objects. This Archive functions in a way as a corporeal catalogue available for the general public interested in approaching performance, performing arts and its ideas. But also as a more objective platform for the exposure to such a practice into the contemporary Art realm and its different contexts.

Artists are invited to submit their portfolios to:

archive@savvy-contemporary.com

Once selected, the artist will be guided through an individual didactical process that follows a wide decentralized understanding of their practices, avoiding categorizations upon gender, age, and nationality. We offer artists the opportunity to constantly update their profiles and add new data once selected.
