1. FADO presents MONOMYTHS: Stage 7 / Pulse by Mary Coble
Date: September 15–25, 2016; City: Toronto, Canada; Source: FAD

FADO Performance Art Centre presents MONOMYTHS: Stage 7: Ordeals
Pulse by Mary Coble (USA/Sweden)

September 15–25, 2016
Ontario Place Island, Toronto
Nightly performances after sunset (times variable)

Presented in the context of in/future at Ontario Place (*times and ticket info below)

In Mary Coble's Pulse, the artist climbs the Cinesphere each day in order to repurpose it as a beacon of protest. A series of Morse Code messages are transmitted from the structure to receivers and relayers positioned throughout Ontario Place island. The transmitted messages are composed of statements and chants used in recent and current protests and fights for civil rights which will be selected from the artist’s archive as well as in collaboration with local community. This collaborative gesture of solidarity merges activist and nautical language to amplify a collective call for action.

Coble’s Pulse fits into the MONOMYTHS journey at Stage 7: Ordeals. During this stage of the journey the heroine has come face to face with their personal challenge, and in this moment they they either confront death or face their greatest fear. The hope of the journey is that by confronting their greatest fear and concurring it, they can embark on a new life. 

Coble’s response to illuminating this stage of the journey suggests the necessity of challenging seemingly inaccessible structures and systems (social, political personal), while insisting on the interdependency of a collective effort by employing the communication of multiple bodies, versus attempting to cross this personal bridge alone. Refraining from a heroic narrative of conquering an iconic structure, the piece lends itself to chance and even possibly, failure.

ABOUT MONOMYTHS
MONOMYTHS invites a diverse collection of artists, scholars, and activists to revise Joseph Campbell’s conception of the hero’s journey through performance art, lectures, workshops, and other offerings. This new assemblage of non-linear un-narratives proposes a cultural, political and social feminist re-visioning of the world. The MONOMYTHS perception of the universal journey dispels the notion of the lone patriarchal figure on a conquest to vanquish his demons–both inner and outer–in consideration of community, collectivity, and collaboration.  

Joseph Campbell’s influential book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949) prescribes a common pattern to all of the world’s mythic narratives. According to this fundamental structure, the archetypal hero is challenged to embark on a monumental quest. Over the course of the hero’s journey, trials and obstacles must be overcome until a victory is won and the hero returns home with new knowledge about himself and the world. Campbell’s concept of the monomyth (‘one myth’) is a recognizable motif in both ancient mythology and contemporary culture, including film, music, literature, sports, and advertising. A current trend in popular visual culture replaces the male character with a female one, in spite of the fact that our heroine–from the get-go–would make different choices if the conditions, and conditioning, allowed. While each MONOMYTHS stage stands alone, the work of each presenting artist is interdependent and connected. These independent visions, when stitched together through the audience’s collective presence, form an exquisite corpse of a larger experimental narrative. 

The year-long MONOMYTHS project is presented in three sections starting in February 2016 and concluding in February 2017. The series is conceived and curated Jess Dobkin and Shannon Cochrane.

After last years successful 10th anniversary celebration of Live Action, featuring a major photo exhibition Live Global at the Gothenburg City Library, a series of lectures Live Talk, and during five weeks, the experimental durational strand Live Time, Live Action continues its 11th edition to renew will to explore new paths in performance art. We will continue the successful durational strand, Live Time, while introducing a new theme in Live Mobile investigating mobility, one of the fields main characteristics.

In problematizing mobility Live Action continues its stated objective to consciously trigger the understanding of performance art. Of course, no one can better than the artists themselves showcase different ways to conceive and embody mobility. They all think and work differently, comes from different backgrounds and cultures, bringing with them their various experiences. This 11th festival is implicitly different from the previous edition, in that we for the first time leaves the white box, the art institution, in presenting also our evening program in our common public space.

6. WORKSHOP: Between Intimacy and Architecture with Victoria Stanton
Date: September 12–16, 2016; City: Montréal, Canada; Source: Victoria Stanton

Between Intimacy and Architecture with Victoria Stanton
September 12–16, 2016
9:30am to 12:30pm (Monday to Friday)
Cost: $100
Open to artists of all disciplines / Bilingual teacher

Info: info@studio303.ca / +1-514-393-3771

How do we listen to each other? How do we interact? How do we respond to the landscape around us? How do we engage with time and space? Cultivating attentive awareness, empathetic presence and peripheral vision, through exercises and constructed situations / performance presentations, this performance art workshop will explore the multiple and very personalized ways in which we experience and foster intimacy and connection – in ourselves, towards others, and in relation to place. We will explore the ways in which a “non-productive” use of time, as carried out in public (place) activates a space as well as looking at how notions of “in-between,” (the spaces between thought and action, between actions, between each other, between ourselves and the spaces around us) can become material that feeds performative action/presence.

Since 2001 Victoria Stanton has been developing an expanded performance art practice combining public intervention and transactional/relational processes within a variety of communities and contexts across Canada and internationally. She has facilitated several workshops with TouVA (a collective comprised of Stanton, Sylvie Tourangeau and Anne Bérubé) and been developing a pedagogy via the exploration of human geography, architecture and the body as well as the micro-event – elements that have become fundamental to her workshops. She has previously given classes in Montreal (RAIQ, SKOL, Studio 303, Concordia University) Durham (Words Aloud Festival), Toronto (Hub 14, Artscape Gibraltar Point, Artscape Youngplace), Sudbury (Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario), Mexico (Centre FRONDA), and Melbourne (Overload Festival).

10. EVENT: Arctic Action
Date: September 19–25, 2016; City: Spitbergen, Norway; Source: Arctic Action

ARCTIC ACTION
Live Performance Art Festival Spitsbergen 2016
September 19–28, 2016

ARTISTS
Marilyn Arsem (USA)
Maline Casta (Sweden)
John Court (Finland/UK)
Magnús Logi Kristinsson (Iceland)
Xiao Lu (China)
Irma Optimist (Finland)
Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (Denmark)
Joakim Stampe (Sweden)

Sarah Gerats (Norway/Belgium)

Arctic Action II is the second edition of the Arctic Action Live Performance Art Festival held on Spitsbergen. The festival wants to be an alternative to the traditional live performance art festivals, in the sense that the performances will take place outdoor in the impressive Arctic scenery. Arctic Action wants to give the invited artists the time and possibility to work more profoundly, as to be able to integrate Svalbard’s’ natural landscape and its impressive qualities and singular expressions into their works. In other words to give the artists time and opportunity to create unique and new art works of quality on the same unique level as the environment they will meet.

In 2015 we focused on one artist at the time. We thought that would be the best way of realizing a quality-focused event of live art in the unique landscape of Svalbard. We wanted to give time to one artist alone to come closer to the environment, to better understand it, sense it and create in it. This year we will invite 10 artists to come and explore, feel, sense and create together. The objective is still to have each one of them to present amazing art works in communication with the landscape they are performing in. The artists have to present one new work in the Russian ghost town of Pyramiden and one new work in the surroundings of the Norwegian settlement, Longyearbyen.

The stated objective of Arctic Action is to produce a professional high definition digital remediation of each work in video as well as in photography for a continued redistribution on the Internet. To introduce the digital aspect of the event as a core quality, as a fusion of the live and the digital. This will of course be an expanded challenge with ten artists producing twenty works in only nine crazy days compared to last year when we could work closer with each and every artist. Still we believe in the blasting energy of ten artists working close together in the Arctic for an intense period of 9 days.

Out of the numerous live art festivals on the international scene, not one gives emphasis to environmental sustainability and digital remediation. This is clearly two of the qualities that distinguish this project as an art manifestation.

Arctic Action is a different international live event focusing on the artists within an ecological approach. Moreover, discussing issues on the relationship of sustainable development and its relation to art, as well as art’s relation to scientific research on the environment.

ABOUT 7a*11d
7a*11d was established in 1997 by a group of local performance artists and organizers, keen to create a forum for performance, live and action art in Toronto. Since then, Toronto has proven itself to be performance art-centric, and 7a*11d has continued to grow and offer audiences the best of contemporary performance art from around the world. 7a*11d is proud to work once again with festival presentation partners Neutral Ground (Regina), OCADU (Toronto) and The Theatre Center (Toronto).
