Making the incomprehensible comprehensible

In “A matter of time B”, digital and bodily language mesh to create a dialogue. The point of departure for the performative installation by Chan Sook Choi and Rosabel Huguet is Qi, which understands the origin of life through Chinese and Korean philosophy. Qi has forever existed in Daoism and is omnipresent, like fabric in uninterrupted movement and change, uniting life and death, order and chaos, the four seasons and the beginning and end of the universe.

In her video, the artist Chan Sook Choi uses the laws of modern physics to translate the invisible energy of Qi into 180,000 digital signs, which unfold in geometric patterns and computer-generated formations on the body of the performer, Rosabel Huguet. They then disappear in an instant, passing into a different structure and emerging in a new guise. The dancer’s body is the medium that records this uninterrupted transformation of energy and connects it to the metaphysical form of the pyramids.

“A matter of time B” is a Daoist reflection on the relationship of humans to their digitally networked environment. It exposes our Western mindset – which divides the world through language and logic, naming and explaining things –¬ to an interstitial space that exists above and beyond the dichotomy of inside and outside, of light and shadow. In consideration of the rapidly developing technologies for storing and sharing of data, Chan Sook Choi and Rosabel Huguet take poetic inspiration to pose pressing questions: How does digital technology influence human nature? Can the digital revolution be reconciled with human autonomy?

Orphée & Eurydice at Opéra de Dijon

Orphée & Eurydice

Gluck | Tragedy in three acts

With the Euridice of Caccini and Peri, and above all L’Orfeo of Monteverdi, the myth of Orpheus has presided over the birth of opera, which has continued to draw inspiration from the tale ever since. What more iconic symbol of the power of music and song than that of the poet’s voice opening the gates of hell itself?

“I’ve lost my Eurydice”… between amorous passion, courage and disobediance, Gluck’s Orphée & Eurydice revisits the myth. The young Maëlle Poésy, very much in the spotlight in recent years, here directs her first opera after several stage productions at the Théâtre Dijon Bourgogne and a show presented at the Festival d’Avignon during the summer of 2016.

DAS FREMDE | ALIENIDENTITÄT

DAS FREMDE | ALIENIDENTITÄT by The Guts Company

The rejection of the strange brings it to our midst. The rejection is the ghosts we call and apparently cannot cast off. The nurture for the ghosts is the rejection. The nurture for the rejection is our fear of the strange. Overcoming not in sight….
But where is the fear of strangeness exactly coming from?
Johanna Roggan´s upcoming piece will be facing ´the strange´ as a daily phenomenon which is part of our individual surroundings – it irritates, attracts attention, amazes and always leaves a bit of uncertainty for each and every one.

“Natura e origine della Mente” at FIND Festival, Berliner Schaubühne

Natura e origine della mente

Conception and Installation: Romeo Castellucci
Text: Claudia Castellucci

Guest performance during FIND Festival 2016 at the Berliner Schaubühne

Italian theatre-maker Romeo Castellucci, who has already worked with the Schaubühne ensemble several times, is presenting an installation with his Italian group Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio as part of FIND 2016. The work premiered very recently, in March 2016. A woman is hanging from a steel cable high above the ground. When we look more closely, we realise she is only holding on by her left forefinger. At any moment she could take a fatal tumble into the void. And yet the woman does not seem to be distressed or panicking. Instead, she appears to be fully in control of the situation and of her own fear – as if a fall were not imminent, as if she can float and at any moment powerfully launch herself upwards. A dog saunters through the crowd which is standing watching events from the ground below her. The animal roams aimlessly, freely and randomly through the scene, slipping through the legs of the spectators. And miaows. A dialogue arises between the cat-dog and the suspended woman. It turns out to be a conversation between a television camera and the light – and is about an increasingly clear realisation: they are all the product of the audience’s inner vision. The installation is based upon Ethics by Baruch de Spinoza (1632-1677), the second chapter of which, like Castellucci’s work, is entitled »Of the Nature and Origin of the Mind«. In it, the philosopher investigates the nature of higher thinking and the impact of the mind which forms reality for itself: whoever thinks is at one with reality.

Conception and Installation: Romeo Castellucci
Music: Scott Gibbons
Sculptures on stage: Istvan Zimmermann, Giovanna Amoroso
Technical management: Massimiliano Peyrone
Sound technician: Matteo Braglia
Production management: Benedetta Briglia
Organization and Communication: Valentina Bertolino, Gilda Biasini
Administration: Michela Medri, Elisa Bruno, Simona Barducci, Massimiliano Coli

With: Silvia Costa, a dog, the voice of Bernardo Bruno and Martina Borroni, Marcella Giesche, Rosabel Huguet, Pia Koch, Feline Lang, Christina Wintz (Extras)

Duration: ca. 45 minutes

Production: Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio in co-produktion with T2G-Théâtre de Gennevilliers, Théâtre de la Ville, Festival d’Automne à Paris and La Biennale di Venezia. Developed in Venice as part of La Biennale College-Teatro in August 2013.

Venice Biennale | Falk Richter | The Earth Shakes: DRESDEN

The Earth Shakes (La terra trema), the Neorealist masterpiece by Luchino Visconti, is the title chosen by Àlex Rigola (director of the Venice Biennale Teatro), which embodies the meaning of the 7 workshops conducted by Christiane Jatahy, Antonio Latella, Jan Lauwers, Fabrice Murgia, Milo Rau, Falk Richter, Agrupación Señor Serrano with the actors selected for the Biennale College. Each of the 7 directors must choose as the title and theme for their workshops one of the many geographical areas in crisis in our own time. The workshops will end on the last day of the Festival on August 9th, with the presentation to the public of a sequence of performances that will involve various locations in the city of Venice.

Our workshop presentation Falk Richter | The Earth Shakes: DRESDEN – IN SEARCH OF A EUROPEAN IDENTITY

Together with Berlin-based, Israeli choreographer Nir de Volff/Total Brutal & Schaubühne Berlin dramaturg Nils Haarmann

In today’s modern globalized world, conservative models of life, relationships, and identities are questioned and re-defined by the majority. Western societies seem to be giving up more and more of their traditional, normative ways of belonging, national and religious beliefs, ideologies, languages, cultures, gender and sexual identities. People are beginning to experiment more and more, and explore what a family in 2015 could look like, explore what heritage and home means when you live between different cultures, and explore how you define yourself as a man or a woman, while new reactionary and right-wing parties and their spokesmen and -women aggressively propagate a simple, hetero-normative, repressive, patriarchic white-dominated conservative society, which conflicts with the every day life experiences of most people in Western society in the year 2015. Dresden, capital of the German state of Saxony, the only Catholic capital in Prussia, baroque town, that was completely destroyed in WWII, reconstructed after the Reunification and today one of the most dynamic and international municipalities of the former GDR, yet haunted by a new rise of right-wing ideology, culminating in large demonstrations against the so-called “Islamization of the West” is an emblematic place in Germany for these new reactionary forces.

How do we define our identity and our values today outside these trembling concepts? Where could the search for a new, more complex, European identity begin?

The individual personal freedom of choosing where to best fit in is one of the promises of our new world. The struggle to find a base, a relationship, a family, or simply a place of belonging in all these different choices and possibilities is one of its challenges. At the same time, reductionist senses of belonging continue to be misused for political purposes, to discriminate, preach hatred, oppress minorities, or even to kill. All of the Western societies who, on the one hand, experience liberty, are seeing the rise of reactionary, extreme-right wing parties, institutions, and spokesmen and women, who are against the European Union, fight against sexual and cultural diversity. These groups want to go back to ideologies of nationalism, they try to re-install traditional religious values, and seek simplistic definitions of what a relationship, a family, and the power structure between men and women should look like, and how a man and a woman should act and behave. What is a “real” man? What is a “real” women? What is a “family”?

Where do I fit in? Where do I belong? Who do I refer to when I talk of “I”. Who am “I”? To whom, or to what does this “I” belong?

FESTIVAL TANZ NRW 2015 !!!

 

For the fifth time, nine partners and twelve venues have teamed up to present this festival dedicated to dance in and from North Rhine-Westphalia in eight cities. The biennial platform tanz nrw is a coalition of dance producers from NRW interested in increasing both regional and international awareness of the NRW dance scene.

Artists from different generations – new faces and famous names alike – will present their latest choreographic projects here. This year’s tanz nrw programme puts 17 artistic positions up for discussion that signify various experiences and ways of thinking. They examine reality in its relationship to physicality, devote themselves to pressing issues or reflect upon the underlying paradigms of society and art production.

I have the pleasure to be performing with the Ben J. Riepe Kompanie on the following shows:

DER LETZTE SCHREI – 3. Edition (PACT Zollverein/ Essen)
DER LETZTE SCHREI – 4. Edition (Generatorenhalle/ Viersen)

WHITE VOID SERIES: Im Nebel – Ein Raum (Alte Feuerwache/ Kölln)

 

DER LETZTE SCHREI:

The expression “Der letzte Schrei” (“the Dernier Cri”) comes from the world of fashion – it is a reference to and a promise of a life full of glitz and glamour, a life in the moment. When taken literally, however, it means the opposite: the end. Death. The last cry to ring out before silence prevails. In theatre, the human body poses the centre of art and reality. It is used by dancers as a tool. In the fashion industry, it is celebrated. Stylised into an object of desire, it permeates our thoughts as a surface upon which we project all of our ideals and aspiration. We use it to create and revise identities. It rebels against our preconceptions. It is vulnerable. And finite.
As a sonorous, ornamental work of choreography, each edition of “Der letzte Schrei” plumbs the boundaries – beginning with the performance space – between the genres anew: Visual art with people, perhaps, or musical theatre with dancers? Or a comprehensive choreographic moment comprised of movement, bodies, objects and sound?

The Ben J. Riepe Kompanie will present the 3rd edition of the project as a stage version at PACT Zollverein.
In the city of Viersen, the venue Generatorenhalle, a multifunctional space whose exact purpose defies categorisation, will become a key protagonist in the formation of bodily object-based tableaus.

Ben J. Riepe studied dance and choreography at Essen’s Folkwang University. He has worked for the ensemble Neuer Tanz in Düsseldorf in addition to serving as a guest performer in Pina Bausch’s ensemble Tanztheater Wuppertal. The Ben J. Riepe Kompanie was founded in 2004. In its most recent works, the Düsseldorf-based choreographer has engaged in intense explorations of exhibition spaces that allow for different viewing and movement dynamics.

WHITE VOID SERIES: Im Nebel – Ein Raum

What makes a good atmosphere? How can a space develop its own temperament, and who gets caught up in its vibes? Since 2013 the Ben J. Riepe Kompanie has used its “White Void Series” to experiment with moving arrangements that perceive choreography as a compositional process comprised of objects, bodies, sound and atmosphere. Neither an exhibition nor a performance, it generates landscapes in time and space, powerful imagery and music, silhouettes in the fog. The dissolution of the familiar, the generation of utterly new realms of experience – this evening has much in store. Dancers, singers and unexpected guests invite audiences to take a momentary step beyond the familiar.

Premiere “Oedipus der Tyrann” by Romeo Castellucci

Oedipus the Tyrant

by Sophokles/Friedrich Hölderlin
Direction: Romeo Castellucci

A plague is laying waste to the land. King Oedipus sends his co-regent Creon to consult the oracle about lifting the curse and summons the seer Tiresias. But all the signs always lead back to himself: he is supposed to have killed the previous king, Laius, and thus provoked the punishment of the gods. Incensed, Oedipus suspects a plot by Creon and Tiresias until evidence is brought before him which unmistakably proves that he himself is Laius’ son, who slayed his father and married his own mother, Jocasta. Upon learning the truth, Jocasta hangs herself in the palace. Oedipus gouges out his eyes with her hairclips.

For the third time after »The Four Seasons Restaurant« (2012) and »Hyperion. Letters of a Terrorist«, which was his first work in German at the Schaubühne in 2013, Romeo Castellucci takes a poetic text by Hölderlin as the basis of a theatre production.Again, Castellucci has women interpret the text by Hölderlin, whom he regards as a »quintessentially female poet«. He approaches the Oedipus material from the greatest possible distance, helped in no small way by the strangeness of Hölderlin’s frequently drama-disabling language, in order to cast a new light on this »prototype of tragedy« and to lay bare the archetype of familial and sexual trauma and taboo.

WHITE VOID # 14 opens up a world of experience of choreography, sculpture, performance and installation in the middle of events at the festival. Beyond the familiar and the proven, the world of experience takes us into the ephemeral moment. In a daily changing, polyphonic parcour on the upper galleries of the MAO, the audience is invited to discover the rapture of their own selves and to transcend the boundaries between inside and outside together. Silent and at the same time radical.

Internationale Tanzmesse 2014

 Ben. J Riepe Kompanie

Der letzte schrei _ 2° edition

Fashion: the word evokes beauty and artificiality, blossoming and decay. Ephemeral as it is, it can even warn us of death. This at least is Ben J. Riepe’s artistic hypothesis for his cyclical work “All the Rage“, the undertitle to the second edition of which is called “artists are alive”. The choreographer has a reputation for being a cool aesthete and this work is no exception, for more than ever he strains all the boundaries of form. His choreography is notable for its provocative poetry somewhere between drama and irony, rooted on the borders of bodies and sculpture, space and movement, dance, music and the pictorial arts.

This work was commissioned to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the NRW Arts Foundation In cooperation with the internationale tanzmesse and the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf.

›DER LETZTE SCHREI‹ // Ben.J Riepe Kompanie

 

The ensemble surrounding the Düsseldorf based choreographer Ben J. Riepe was founded in 2004. Since then it created various stage choreographies, performances, installations, film- and video work, which have been successfully shown internationally. In the last years the company toured in Poland, India, Bangladesh, the Netherlands and France and was awarded with numerous prices.

The Ben J. Riepe company exists of several permanent dancers and project wise collaborators from the fields of dance, music/composition and costume as well as installation and visual arts. Since 2010 the Ben J. Riepe company is running its own studio space in Düsseldorf, where current productions are rehearsed, training takes place and artistic research is represented.

The work of Ben J. Riepe is characterized by a strong and provocative poetic, between drama and irony that is interviewing beauty with critical statements. Choreography becomes more than a beautiful arrangement of moving bodies on stage and the company is pushing those boundaries of contemporary dance with every new work. Ben J. Riepe has developed his own vocabulary of dance and movement that searches consequently for new aesthetics and ways of expression; digging deeper in our consciousness and testing the edges of abstract but touching creations.

 

Ben J.Riepe is Affiliated Artist at Pact Zollverein during the 2014 and the 11th and the 12th of April we are presenting a performative installation on the theme of the nascent production “Der Letzte Schrei ” / ” The Dernier Cri”

 

PACT Zollverein, Essen

11th + 12th of April 2014

7pm

 

›DER LETZTE SCHREI‹ ist ein Nachbild, eine Erinnerung an Schönheit und Künstlichkeit, an Blüte und Zerfall. Der Titel, versteht man ihn als geflügeltes Wort, gehört in die Welt der Mode – dort meint und verspricht er das schrille Leben, den Moment. Wörtlich genommen verkehrt er sich ins Gegenteil: Das Ende. Der Tod. Der letzte Laut vor der Stille.
Wie in den Vorgängerwerken der Ben J. Riepe Kompanie steht auch hier der Körper im Zentrum. Formgrenzen werden noch konsequenter strapaziert als bisher: ›DER LETZTE SCHREI‹ ist lokalisiert an den Rändern von Körper und Skulptur, Raum und Bewegung, Tanz, Musik und Bildender Kunst.
