PERFORMANCE PLATFORM

About

Performance Platform is a website and web app listing public activities from five different organisations based in Amsterdam: Dasarts, If I Can't Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution, NBprojects, School for New Dance Development (SNDO) and Veem House for Performance. In addition, Performance Platform calls attention to other performance-related events in the city and abroad.

Performance Platform is an entirely subjective, while broadly oriented mapping of the performance landscape. Besides being a user-friendly list serve, the platform aims to highlight pathways through the city, facilitating new discoveries across the various institutions where (performing) arts take place. Far from attempting an all-encompassing survey of the field, the platform’s organisers include information concerning performance-related activities that have captured our imagination: mainly in Amsterdam—to strengthen the local scene—but also elsewhere in the world.

Every month, the five partners come together to discuss preferred landmarks within Amsterdam’s performance field, unfamiliar artists, or events that arouse curiosity. We draw attention to the things that are already here, close-by, but which are perhaps overlooked, inconspicuous or as yet unnoticed. We don’t shy away from ‘big and famous’ either. Every month a new landscape of artistic activity arises—full of not-yet-visible links and possible interconnections, new perspectives, viewpoints and secret gardens.

Those who subscribe to the Performance Platform, get a monthly Letter in their inbox. The goal of this Letter is not to inform, nor to bring any 'news'. Until 2016, each month, in a rotating manner, Barbara Van Lindt, Anne Breure, Nicole Beutler, Frédérique Bergholtz and Bojana Mladenovic, have been presenting the platform’s readership with topics, ideas or people connected to their most current interest. In 2016, a new editorial board composed of Isobel Dryburgh, Maria Rößler, Marjolein Vogels, Annick Kleizen and Simon Asencio was invited to bring in their diversely informed perspectives and to continue the momentum initiated by the five ladies who artistically lead the Performance Platform’s constitutive organisations. Sometimes staying as close as to articulating excitement or concern from the life of the organisations, at other times drawing attention to complex and elaborate projects of others, the editorial board also occasionally extends the invitation to a guest to speak on its behalf.

Each Letter marks a point in time in which the thoughts and ideas on or around performance situate themselves rather freely in poetic, semi- or non-academic, invigorating, careless, engaged, frivolous and pertinent performance discourses at once.

The history and traditions of performance lie in the twentieth century. Today, this provides references, concepts, presentation modes, curatorial models, theoretical and philosophical ideas that infuse life in many different scenes. For us—a venue and production house, a dance company, a visual arts institute, a Bachelor Studies for Choreography and a training programme for Masters of Theatre—approaching the arts from a disciplinary angle does not correspond to the way we work, think and talk. Performance allows another perspective: less sticking to orthodoxy within disciplines, more addressing qualities of presence, the experience of an event, and the politics of show and tell.

English is the language most used in this international community and is therefore the one we have chosen to carry the Performance Platform contents.

NBprojects IICD Het Veem Theater DASarts SNDO

HET VEEM THEATER

Filled with voices during the year; old and new, young and established, coming from the arts and beyond, coming from Amsterdam and abroad. Always exploring what performance can and should be in movement, time, and discourse; questioning what we take as given, performing new proposals for ways of looking, and taking us on journeys to unknown worlds. Veem stands as a house for performance, dance, and discourse for making and presenting radical, daring, and experimental work.

We do this by producing and presenting performances on the cross-disciplinary field of dance, theatre, visual arts, cinematography, and music from new makers and by inviting work of international influential artists.
We do this in connections with schools and institutions with whom we share fascinations and this field. (i.a. SNDO, Mime, Amsterdam Master of Choreography and DasArts; Stedelijk Museum, SPRING, ICK, Oude Kerk, Nieuwe Grond – Theater Festival)
We do this in discourse by organising exchanges of thought, booklaunches, debates and salons.
We do this in going outside and working at, and with, other spaces and places.
We do this with you – the audience, artists, and all curious minds out there. The doors are open! Be welcome.

IF I CAN'T DANCE

If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution is an association dedicated to exploring the evolution and typology of performance and performativity in contemporary art. If I Can’t Dance initiates, produces and presents projects with artists, curators and researchers on the basis of long-term collaborations. These projects are presented (inter)nationally through a network of partner institutions.

If I Can’t Dance works along the systematic of collaboration. It doesn’t have a ‘house’, but instead produces projects and programmes that have different manifestations in different institutions within the Netherlands and abroad. One of our networks is Corpus, a European consortium for performance production including the partners Tate Modern and Playground Festival (STUK, Museum M).

If I Can’t Dance’s programme is structured in two-year editions, comprising of artist commissions, research commissions, as well as discursive activities including a monthly reading group. Each edition, defined by a certain field of investigation, engages a group of associated practitioners and institutional partners and unfolds along a travelling trajectory. Previous editions examined theatricality (Edition I), feminism (Edition II) masquerade (Edition III), affect (Edition IV), and appropriation in conjunction with dedication (Edition V) in contemporary visual art.

For Edition VI (2015–2016), If I Can’t Dance takes the notions of ‘Event and Duration’ as the field of research for its biannual programme of Commissions, Performance in Residence projects, reading groups, seminars and workshops. The programme of Commissions includes the production and presentation of new work by artists Leonor Antunes, Alex Martinis Roe, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, and Joke Robaard. If I Can’t Dance also continues its Performance in Residence programme, approaching performance-related practice through production-led research, with four new projects by Erin Alexa Freedman and Lili Huston-Herterich, Fred Moten and Wu Tsang, Peter Pál Pelbart, and Vivian Ziherl.

Since its inception in 2005, If I Can't Dance explores performance practice in visual art, set within the wider scope of both stage arts and feminism. Our relationships with practitioners to this day are informed by our ongoing interest in current and past theatre and dance practices and the manifestations of feminist discourse in art production.

The programme of If I Can’t Dance is supported by the Mondriaan Fund, the Cultural Programme of the European Union (Corpus) and the municipality of Amsterdam.

NBPROJECTS

NBprojects is a vehicle for the artistic and curatorial projects of choreographer Nicole Beutler and her associates.

NBprojects is motivated by the desire to find, and propose, alternatives to fixed ideologies. It seeks to articulate the instability of the rational, create conditions for encounters and reflection within an artistic practice that naturally goes beyond the borders of constructed disciplines such as theatre, visual art, music, dance and performance. This motivation leads to performance/ dance/ theatre projects, to various forms of cross-disciplinary collaborations, as well as to the curating of conferences, lectures, festivals and the annual summer academy: WE LIVE HERE.

Nicole Beutler studied Fine Arts in Germany and Dance and Choreography at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO), part of the Amsterdam Theatre School. Parallel to creating dance/performance pieces, she was a member of the theatre-maker’s collective LISA. After five years of existence as discursive framework and production platform, LISA came to an end. Nicole set up her own organisation: NBprojects. Propelled by the fundamental desire to ‘bring people together’, with NBprojects she continues the search for links and connections across the field and beyond.

NBprojects is joining the Performance Platform in order to expose existing artistic pathways across the city of Amsterdam and beyond its borders, to mark a landscape of affinities and potential connections and to relate individual practices to the larger context.

NBprojects is funded by the Dutch Performing Arts Fund.

DASARTS

DasArts is a master’s degree course within the Theatre School of the Amsterdam School of Arts. The programme is based on eighteen years of experience as an educational, production-based and research-orientated hybrid. Our two-year, question based, residential master’s programme functions as a laboratory and aims to improve the artistic competences of its international students.

Artists studying at DasArts define both their goals and the research methods they plan to adopt. Although the focus is placed on individual development, our main educational strategies are derived from the learning potential of encounters: significant collisions with peers, guest teachers and staff and the fostering of professional intimacy. In other words, the degree to which you are able to provide insights into your working processes to a group of colleagues and/or an audience (often comprised of professionals).

DasArts is an acknowledged master of theatre. Theatre is the backdrop: its history and conventions, the traditions and the avant-garde spirit. Performance is part of this legacy. Since this lively contemporary international scene of practitioners and theoreticians creates a cross-cultural critical environment, DasArts consciously brings it into its program: via guest teachers, advisors or mentors, the students themselves, or the books housed in the library.

SNDO

The SNDO—School for New Dance Development (School voor Nieuwe Dansontwikkeling in Dutch)—offers a full time four-year professional education course leading to a bachelor's degree in Art – Choreography. The school was founded in 1975 as an attempt to find new directions for dance next to the existing forms and styles that dominated the field. After forty years, the SNDO remains inquisitive, open minded, and in the foreground of progressive developments in the fields of dance and performance. In the curriculum, the school establishes the conditions from which the creativity of the student can emerge. Reflection on the specific qualities of dance and performance as art forms is developed, and awareness of the body and the artistic implications of working with it take precedence.

The SNDO has built an international reputation and has students from more than forty different countries. The staff and guest teachers are also international, and courses are taught in English. This international reputation, its strong image (inevitably followed by some myths!), and its excellent pool of alumni, all continue to contribute to its development and renewal, challenging and expanding upon established ways of making choreographies and performances. It is only possible to achieve this through the combination of an articulate vision on art, society, and education, and the translation of this vision into the school structure and the curriculum. Throughout the years one thing has remained constant—that which is expected from its students, the SNDO poses as a task to itself: continuous critical self-examination, experimentation, renewal, and the contemporaneity and progressiveness of its programme.

Over and above its core curriculum, the SNDO does this through active and critical dialogue with contemporary themes and politics within the profession; stimulating and initiating new developments and research in the area of dance and performance; by offering intensive courses and symposia, and by producing articles that can contribute to further development in the field. The SNDO collaborates with a number of local and international organizations from the fields of dance, performance, visual arts, and education: theatres Frascati and Het Veem, the fine arts institute If I Can’t Dance in Amsterdam and HZT from Berlin.

Like any educational structure, the SNDO is further recognized and enriched by the work of its alumni. Many teachers, dancers, and choreographers work in the international field. Within the large working community names such as Sasha Waltz, Martin Nachbar, Thomas Lehmen, Ivana Müller, or Nicloe Beutler stand as already established and recognized choreographers alongside more recent forces such as Alma Söderberg, Rodrigo Sobarzo de Larraechea, Vincent Riebeek, Florentina Holzinger, Lisa Vereertbrugghen, Simon Tanguy, Marta Ziólek, and Simon Asencio, to name just a few recent graduates.

The SNDO is part of de Theaterschool at the AHK—Amsterdam School of the Arts, and is accredited by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.

  • FOREIGN EXCHANGE (or the stories you wouldn’t tell a stranger) is an account of certain disturbing ways of visualising human beings in the name of science; of the transformation of the human body into that of an object; of the fascination with the Other; of the passion for collecting; of the mission to preserve remote cultures for all eternity; of the need to find systems for that task. And it’s an account of the role that is ultimately always played by money and trade.

  • READ MORE
  • Other Primary Structures revisits the premise of and builds upon the Museum’s seminal 1966 exhibition Primary Structures: Younger American and British Sculptors, the first American museum exhibition to survey the style now known as Minimalism. Primary Structures introduced the public to such artists as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria, Robert Morris, Anne Truitt, a.o. – unknown at the time but soon to become synonymous with a radically new approach to sculpture. Nearly 50 years later, the exhibition revisits this formative moment in art history while also reexamining the period from today’s far more global perspective.

    WIELS, Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (BE)

  • READ MORE
  • For her first survey exhibition For the Mnemonist, S., Italian artist Rossella Biscotti draws a trajectory that reflects on the conflicting yet overlapping notions of history and memory. In the exhibition, five major works from the past five years compose an architecture that departs from Biscotti’s research into the institutional forms developed by society to control and discipline, and continues to map the deeper layers of the mind. The title refers to a case study of Russian psychologist Alexander Luria that concentrates on ‘S.’, a young man with an incredibly vast but bizarre memory.

  • READ MORE
  • Within the Biennale’s context of re-examining the fundamentals of architecture over the past centrury, the Swiss Pavilion focuses on the English architect Cedric Price (1925-2003) and the Swiss sociologist Lucius Burckhardt (1934-2003), two great visionaries whose work resonates with and continues to inspire new generations in the 21st century. A dramaturgy – conceived by Asad Raza and Tino Seghal with Herzog & de Meuron, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Dorothea von Hantelmann, and Philippe Parreno – envelopes Price’s and Burckhardt’s production, selecting drawings from the archive and re-presenting them to the public.

On display at Secession, these objects should not only propose a particular approach or specific use by virtue of their mere materiality and compositional form; they also enact a release from such determinations and suspend established notions of intention, authorship, purpose and function.

  • READ MORE
  • A theatrical installation with 44 ant colonies confronts the visitor with human suffering in our globalised world. Can we still relate, or is a sort of ‘collateral damage’ manifesting itself within this animal species called human? Through his installation, Homo Desperatus, theatre maker Dries Verhoeven challenges the visitor to observe the suffering of our time and reflect on their own role in this. Which prompts the question: are you a neutral scientist or a disaster tourist and can we still relate to what is happening to humanity at the other end of the world?

Together with four highly promising dancers of his generation the young choreographer leads us through such divergent musical worlds as Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser and György Ligeti’s Lontano – a work filled with polyphonic song.

  • READ MORE
  • /S ITE S\ is an audio-visual performance, a mind-site, in which the spectator becomes his own archaeologist. Understanding the chronology of past activity means engaging introspectively. Natural forces, like different phenomena of water, air, electricity and mainly sound substances, are used as excavation forces to induce this state of attention. /S ITE S\ is about trying to meticulously understand our present place. By practicing reversed archaeology we are choosing, from the disclosed traces and relics, what to deliberately place on-site and leave behind as our present: for it to be buried in time, and only found in a millenary-distant future.

    4: STILL LIFE

    Nicole Beutler

    21 Aug 2014

    Operaestate Festival Veneto; CSC Garage Nardini, Bassano di Grappa (IT)

  • READ MORE
  • In 4: STILL LIFE choreographer Nicole Beutler distils elements from the long history of partner dance. Onstage are a woman and a man. Their physicality and actions are guided by the principles of body geometry, and the geometry of space and light. All the elements of the piece are interdependent and composed musically in space and time; leading or following, merging or interfering, distant or intimate. 4: STILL LIFE is a court dance, a mating dance, a play, a ‘Lichtspiel’, a ritual. Beutler drew inspiration from the early twentieth-century Bauhaus movement for this ‘mechanical ballet’ dance duet.

The French composer Gérard Grisey completed his intense and colourful chamber piece Vortex Temporum two years before his death in 1998. As if making a legacy, he describes the circling of an invisible axis of space and time. The 60-minute dance takes up this motif, becoming a part of the music.

  • In 4: STILL LIFE choreographer Nicole Beutler distils elements from the long history of partner dance. Onstage are a woman and a man. Their physicality and actions are guided by the principles of body geometry, and the geometry of space and light. All the elements of the piece are interdependent and composed musically in space and time; leading or following, merging or interfering, distant or intimate. 4: STILL LIFE is a court dance, a mating dance, a play, a ‘Lichtspiel’, a ritual. Beutler drew inspiration from the early twentieth-century Bauhaus movement for this ‘mechanical ballet’ dance duet.

  • «Der Kosovo interessiert uns in Westeuropa mässig bis gar nicht.» Grund genug für Beatrice Fleischlin und Antje Schupp für ihr Projekt zum Thema Ausgrenzung in den Kosovo zu fahren und vor Ort zu recherchieren. Mit ihrem je eigenen, bewusst naiven westeuropäischen Blick haben die beiden Performerinnen die komplexen politischen und sozialen Vorgänge in dem jungen Staats­ gebilde beobachtet. Ihre Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen haben sie in ihrer Produktion zusammen mit dem kosovarischen Performer Astrit Ismaili und dem Tänzer Labinot Rexhepi künstlerisch umgesetzt.

    Life of Always a Mirror

    Sung Hwan Kim

    30 Aug 2014

    2F, 3F, Artsonje Center, Seoul (KR)

  • READ MORE
  • This solo exhibition introduces Sung Hwan Kim’s art as a systematic integration of video, drawing, installation, architecture, and performance into a single exhibition space. The title of the exhibition Life of Always a Mirror is a play on words in Korean on a Korean elementary school textbook’s title Joyful Life. This method of education merges music, art, and physical education into a single subject as a didactic gesture in public education that teaches the youth not only knowledge but also the way they should lead a joyful life.

      • READ MORE
      • FOREIGN EXCHANGE (or the stories you wouldn’t tell a stranger) is an account of certain disturbing ways of visualising human beings in the name of science; of the transformation of the human body into that of an object; of the fascination with the Other; of the passion for collecting; of the mission to preserve remote cultures for all eternity; of the need to find systems for that task. And it’s an account of the role that is ultimately always played by money and trade.

      • READ MORE
      • Other Primary Structures revisits the premise of and builds upon the Museum’s seminal 1966 exhibition Primary Structures: Younger American and British Sculptors, the first American museum exhibition to survey the style now known as Minimalism. Primary Structures introduced the public to such artists as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria, Robert Morris, Anne Truitt, a.o. – unknown at the time but soon to become synonymous with a radically new approach to sculpture. Nearly 50 years later, the exhibition revisits this formative moment in art history while also reexamining the period from today’s far more global perspective.

        WIELS, Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (BE)

      • READ MORE
      • For her first survey exhibition For the Mnemonist, S., Italian artist Rossella Biscotti draws a trajectory that reflects on the conflicting yet overlapping notions of history and memory. In the exhibition, five major works from the past five years compose an architecture that departs from Biscotti’s research into the institutional forms developed by society to control and discipline, and continues to map the deeper layers of the mind. The title refers to a case study of Russian psychologist Alexander Luria that concentrates on ‘S.’, a young man with an incredibly vast but bizarre memory.

      • A Voice of One’s Own takes its starting point 100 years ago at the Baltic Exhibition in Malmö, Sweden. 1,700 exhibitors and 850,000 visitors witnessed cultural refinement, technical developments, art exhibitions and athletic feats. There was an air of “everything is possible,” with the war yet to begin. And in the midst of all this, the women’s manifestation and fight for suffrage. This summer’s collaboration between Malmö Konstmuseum and Moderna Museet Malmö gives examples of strategies for achieving a gender equal society.

A dramaturgy – conceived by Asad Raza and Tino Seghal with Herzog & de Meuron, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Dorothea von Hantelmann, and Philippe Parreno – envelopes Price’s and Burckhardt’s production, selecting drawings from the archive and re-presenting them to the public.

On display at Secession, these objects should not only propose a particular approach or specific use by virtue of their mere materiality and compositional form; they also enact a release from such determinations and suspend established notions of intention, authorship, purpose and function.

      • A theatrical installation with 44 ant colonies confronts the visitor with human suffering in our globalised world. Can we still relate, or is a sort of ‘collateral damage’ manifesting itself within this animal species called human? Through his installation, Homo Desperatus, theatre maker Dries Verhoeven challenges the visitor to observe the suffering of our time and reflect on their own role in this. Which prompts the question: are you a neutral scientist or a disaster tourist and can we still relate to what is happening to humanity at the other end of the world?

      • In Idioter Alma Söderberg and Hendrik Willekens work together. They create a concert performance where the music supports Alma’s way to intensely play with rhythm and Hendrik’s geometric landscape drawings. First of all there will be music. Idioter is a noisy electronic concert with a strong rhythmical drive. It flirts with concrete music and concrete poetry. Secondly Idioter consists of Hendrik’s drawings. He draws geometrical landscapes disappearing in a single vanishing point. He draws this drawing over and over again, thus expanding the landscape to a theme; again and again you find yourself drawn into the same nothingness.

Deeply moved by a performance of traditional folk dancing in Istanbul, the French choreographer Christian Rizzo here inflects his precise, angular dance style with the universal gestures of dances that for centuries have brought communities together. Eight dancers from the Mediterranean and two drummers set in motion the rhythms of a ritual underscored by tribal rock music that grabs a visceral hold and transports to ecstasy.

      • READ MORE
      • The Live Legacy Project seeks to share the practices and techniques sprouted by the 1960s American avant-garde and that migrated to Germany, often through the Dutch institutions (e.g. SNDO and European Dance Development School). The project reveals these revolutionary influences in German Contemporary Dance training, and highlights the visibility of such corporeal values in choreographic work and practice. The Project celebrates this movement by bringing together choreographers, dance artists, scholars, and educators, to converge in a six-day symposium.

        5: ECHO

        Nicole Beutler

        8 Jul 2014

        Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam, Amsterdam

      • READ MORE
      • In the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ 5: ECHO, choreographer Nicole Beutler opens a dialogue with history. Inspired by the traces left by the radical work of ‘space artist’ Koert Stuyf and ‘muse of Dutch dance’ Ellen Edinoff and employing the movement material from the piece Vermiljoen (1978) by Bianca van Dillen, Beutler takes the spectator on a contemporary journey through time. With one foot in Dutch dance history and the other in the world of today, she investigates whether the avant-garde work from the Nineteen Seventies kicks up as much dust now as it did then.

      • READ MORE
      • Together with performers Dwayne Toemere and Hilde Labadie, artist Jolika Sudermann started the project Infanten in 2012. Guided by their fascination for the motoric and open vision of the world of infants, they started the process by observing 1- till 3-year-olds in a crèche. From the findings, they created a set of rules, that afterwards in the studio served as a guideline for their own ‘ride back’. While letting go of things that are physically preventing them to find the toddler motoric, in Infanten, the performers are also confronted with the set of mental obstacles: consciousness, self-censorship and knowledge.

      • A sumptuous baroque painting – or a “danced concert” that is dynamic to the point of ecstasy? Albert Quesada’s choreographies attempt to blend music with movement. Together with four highly promising dancers of his generation the young choreographer leads us through such divergent musical worlds as Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser and György Ligeti’s Lontano – a work filled with polyphonic song.

        • FOREIGN EXCHANGE (or the stories you wouldn’t tell a stranger) is an account of certain disturbing ways of visualising human beings in the name of science; of the transformation of the human body into that of an object; of the fascination with the Other; of the passion for collecting; of the mission to preserve remote cultures for all eternity; of the need to find systems for that task. And it’s an account of the role that is ultimately always played by money and trade.

        • A Voice of One’s Own takes its starting point 100 years ago at the Baltic Exhibition in Malmö, Sweden. 1,700 exhibitors and 850,000 visitors witnessed cultural refinement, technical developments, art exhibitions and athletic feats. There was an air of “everything is possible,” with the war yet to begin. And in the midst of all this, the women’s manifestation and fight for suffrage. This summer’s collaboration between Malmö Konstmuseum and Moderna Museet Malmö gives examples of strategies for achieving a gender equal society.

        • Within the Biennale’s context of re-examining the fundamentals of architecture over the past centrury, the Swiss Pavilion focuses on the English architect Cedric Price (1925-2003) and the Swiss sociologist Lucius Burckhardt (1934-2003), two great visionaries whose work resonates with and continues to inspire new generations in the 21st century. A dramaturgy – conceived by Asad Raza and Tino Seghal with Herzog & de Meuron, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Dorothea von Hantelmann, and Philippe Parreno – envelopes Price’s and Burckhardt’s production, selecting drawings from the archive and re-presenting them to the public.

The title of the exhibition Life of Always a Mirror is a play on words in Korean on a Korean elementary school textbook’s title Joyful Life. This method of education merges music, art, and physical education into a single subject as a didactic gesture in public education that teaches the youth not only knowledge but also the way they should lead a joyful life.

The Value of Nothing springs from long-term research initiated by TENT into shifts in thinking about value and economy, and the role that art can play therein. In the aftermath of the global economic crisis increasingly urgent questions arise that are related to neoliberal values seeping into almost every aspect of our lives.

Tauberbach is about people who attempt to live/survive with dignity under difficult circumstances. The starting point for this co-operation is the Brazilian documentary Estamira, which is about a schizophrenic woman who lives on a scrapheap and who has developed a unique way of communicating. Other sources of inspiration include music by Bach sung by deaf people and arias by Mozart. The music in the performance is performed live.

        • An improvised lecture on improvisation with the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy. Nancy has written more than twenty books and hundreds of texts or contributions to volumes, catalogues and journals. His philosophical scope is very broad: from On Kawara to Heidegger, from the sense of the world and the deconstruction of Christianity to the Jena romantics of the Schlegel brothers. One of the main themes in his work is the question of our being together in contemporary society. How we can still speak of a ‘we’ or of a plurality, without transforming this ‘we’ into a substantial and exclusive identity. What are the conditions to speak of a ‘we’ today?

        • Does art produce its own kind of knowledge? Where is the synergy between art and ‘hard’ science? And what value do we place on curiosity and imagination in today’s knowledge-driven economy? Unfinished Systems of Non-Knowledge (part 1) is a public event exploring the dialogues between art, knowledge and science. To answer these questions, scientists, curators and artists revisit examples from the early Modern period when art and science where not yet strictly separate disciplines. Unfinished Systems of Non-Knowledge is the first part of a longer research project and a prelude to a three-day event in the winter of 2014–2015.

        • The title of the 31st Bienal de São Paulo, How to (…) things that don’t exist, is a poetic invocation of art’s capacities, of its ability to reflect and act upon on life, power and belief. The sentence, neither a question nor a proposition, entangles, through art, the mystical and spiritual side of life with political and social ideals – all this in a constantly changing world. It intends to communicate optimism about the possibilities of art today – an optimism that echoes that of the Bienal and the projects within it. For the full programme visit: 31bienal.org

        • Schwalbe is performing the grand finale of Schwalbe zoekt massa. For their XL edition they are bringing no fewer than 200 people to the stage. The audience will see a crowd of people pass them by like a horde: driven, brave, infectious, full of life. Like a stampede they are going straight for their aim, but after a while you begin to wonder what their destination may be. The purposeful crowd turns into an aimless, unpredictable mass, pulling in everything that comes in its path.

        • Wat zie je als je naar een onbekende kijkt? En wat zegt zo’n eerste indruk eigenlijk over jezelf? De jonge theatermaker Emke Idema ontwierp een laboratorium rondom het spanningsveld tussen onderbuikgevoelens en sociale wenselijk gedrag. Een theatergame waarin je je verbindt met anderen en je uitspreekt.

        • Stroom Den Haag presents WeberWoche, celebrating the re-enchantment of the world and ideas. The starting point of this exhibition and performance programme is the concept of the Entzauberung der Welt, a notion first articulated by the German sociologist Max Weber. Artists, performers, filmmakers, composers and theoreticians, resourcing from multiple areas of knowledge and operating through contrasting artistic and discursive strategies, will shape a multifaceted program aimed at questioning the role of enchantment in today’s secularized Western society.

        • READ MORE
        • The literal meaning of the Japanese title Shirokuro is ‘white-black’. Shirokuro defines contrasts. Darkness accentuates light. Sound accentuates silence. The idea of hell delineates heaven. Playfulness is intensified by confrontation with directness. Galina Ustvolskaja’s compositions Piano Sonata No. 6 and No. 5 are the beating heart of Shirokuro. Dancer Mitchell-Lee van Rooij, pianist Tomoko Mukaiyama, choreographer Nicole Beutler and lighting designer Jean Kalman have created a work of such precision and unrelenting energy that it challenges the audience to face their own existential contrasts.

        • Since the invention of aerial photography during the last decades of the 19th century, the sky above our heads has become a territory subjected to militarized conflicts over mastery and command. Following this evolution, the view from above has become associated with state control and corporate power. Parallel to this disturbing rising trend, and in many respects as a response to it, an increasing number of artists, activists, scientists, and designers from different regions seek ways to use today’s technology to re-appropriate the sky and reclaim the view from above. These efforts and experiments stand at the center of Decolonized Skies.

        • The truth about Kate is de reconstructie van een zelf gefabuleerde identiteit meets geënsceneerde documentaire, waarin een jonge vrouw terugblikt op haar leven. Zij spreekt over zichzelf in de voltooid verleden tijd, derde persoon enkelvoud. En ze speelt alle rollen zelf. Ook de voice-over. In haar zoektocht naar bewondering, dramatiek en mysterie raakt zij verstrikt in haar eigen creatie.

        • Poet Johnson Linton Kwesi rose to fame in the tumultuous and repressive 1980s with poems such as ‘Inglan is a Bitch’ and ‘Street 66’. His collected work has been published as a Penguin Classic: Mi Revalueshanary Fren. Johnson’s candid poetry is socially engaged and poetic, and musical. Dub poet Sheldon Shepherd hails from the same musical tradition as Johnson. Shepherd is a member of the famous spoken word poets collective No-Madzz. Johnson and Shepherd read from their work, accompanied by Pablo Nahar on bass. Christine Otten talks with Johnson and Shepherd about language, music and the backgrounds to their work.

          Nicole Beutler & Ulrike Quade

          Ljubljana Puppet Theater, Ljubljana (SI)

        • READ MORE
        • Antigone, the first collaborative work by choreographer Nicole Beutler and theatre maker Ulrike Quade, is a visual adaptation of the Greek tragedy written by Sophocles in 442BC. The co-directors couple the themes explored by the original with current issues, focusing on the question of how free our actions truly are. Antigone weighs up the two sisters’ ideas. It’s not easy to take sides with one or the other. What is good; what is evil? Their internal motives are revealed in a manipulative game played between performers and puppets.
The puppets were made in Japan especially for this production by Watanabe Kazunori in the bunraku theatre tradition.

        • Pauline Oliveros is a senior in contemporary American music. She is as interested in finding new sounds as in finding new uses for old ones. Her primary instrument is the accordion, an unexpected visitor perhaps to the musical cutting edge. Oliveros is the founder of ‘Deep Listening’ and describes it as a way of listening in every possible way to everything possible to hear no matter what you are doing. Such intense listening includes the sounds of daily life, of nature, of one’s own thoughts as well as musical sounds.

        • READ MORE
        • Immersion is the main focus in APNEA: the creation of a space in suspension, as though underwater; physically and mentally suspended. Deprived of the presence of any water, sound waves become the substitute of the liquid element. Aiming to ‘immortalize’ the body by means of air privation, specifically during water submersion, we are seeking to dive into a temporal territory. To arrive to that place of discomfort created by the lack of oxygen and water pressure. To dwell that state and unfold a performative event that will confront us with what it is normally taken for granted: the vital and constant presence of air all around us. Read more.

        • Gerro, Minos and Him is about three men thrown into an empty room, trying to figure out a way to spend their time together. Here the game starts, right in front of the audience. Here they delve into an on-going transformation of bodies and relationships. Using exclusively what is there – their imagination, their own bodies, and both those of their partners and the audience – they extract themselves from the actual room of the theatre to shape fictional spaces that collide with the empty stage and in-between themselves.

        • Jetse Batelaan (1978) staat bekend om zijn fantasievolle, beeldende en tegelijk glasheldere voorstellingen, waarin de onhandige, ploeterende mens de hoofdrol speelt. De herkenbare mens die het allemaal ook niet precies weet, maar die wel wat warmte kan gebruiken. De dag dat de papegaai (…) is een choreografie in woorden over mensen die elkaar napraten, een oefening in inwisselbaarheid met een cast van louter beroemdheden. Wie zijn we nog, als we niet meer voor onszelf spreken? Hoe weet je waar je zelf ophoudt en de ander begint? En moeten we echt allemaal uniek zijn? Een liefdevol pleidooi voor het verdwijnen in elkaar.

They all form the ingredients for the score of an exceptional ‘voices recital’, which sprung from the brain of French theatre-maker Joris Lacoste.

        • In Idioter Alma Söderberg and Hendrik Willekens work together. They create a concert performance where the music supports Alma’s way to intensely play with rhythm and Hendrik’s geometric landscape drawings. First of all there will be music. Idioter is a noisy electronic concert with a strong rhythmical drive. It flirts with concrete music and concrete poetry. Secondly Idioter consists of Hendrik’s drawings. He draws geometrical landscapes disappearing in a single vanishing point. He draws this drawing over and over again, thus expanding the landscape to a theme; again and again you find yourself drawn into the same nothingness.

        • Nan Hoover is a pioneer of video and performance art. Since the early 1970s in her performances, video works and light installations she explored the language of minimalism through light and the durational aspects of various media. Time, space, silence, and light are key aspects of her focus in powerfully slow, silent videos and performances, installations and drawings. From September 20 to October 19, a five-week program, including an exhibition, video screenings, a discussion and a performance, focuses on the work and influence of Nan Hoover. The exhibition takes place at the Wilhelmina Gasthuis (WG Terrein). Other venues include PuntWG, Vondelkerk, and LIMA.

Ukeles’ manifesto, “Maintenance Art—Proposal for an Exhibition“ (1969), declared all maintenance work, all service as art, from the very personal kind that comes with running a household, through public sanitation work, to earth maintenance. Since 1977, Ukeles has been the official unsalaried Artist in Residence at the New York City Department of Sanitation, a position she still holds, where she has realized several long term projects.

        • Susan Sontag (1933-2004) is een van de grootste denkers en scherpste essayisten van de 20ste eeuw: a true radical thinker. Met een onstilbare honger naar kennis en een ongelooflijk brede interesse analyseerde en politiseerde zij in haar essays het dagelijks leven. Van fotografie tot camp, van porno tot politiek, van kunst tot hiv. ‘Be serious, Be passionate, wake up!’ was haar stelregel in het leven. Benjamin Moser, die momenteel de biografie van Sontag schrijft, neemt ons mee in zijn zoektocht naar het leven van Sontag. Daarnaast staan we stil bij de impact van haar werk.

          All Things; archeology of a space object

        • “It started one day that I entered a supermarket and for the first time I saw a deodorant for babies, in that moment I realized that I was indeed a deodorant for babies and therefore time was also a deodorant for babies. How do things affect space and time? What would be for instance the time of a plastic bottle? I could be the value of a plastic bottle. That would be even less than the 25 cents it costs to produce it.” – Norberto Llopis Segarra

          Standing Body (Lecture-performance)

        • The lecture-performance will depart from the image of the standing body and its utilization as communication tool – as a way to express opinion, to support or disagree, to confront, resist, rebel. The standing body sends a message there where the opportunities for conversation are exhausted – it creates meaning with minimal means. It decides to stand and to take a position putting its own existence into question. The standing body does not have any utopian project. Nevertheless, it can create a temporary topos in which languages, cultures, political hierarchies and systems of power get suspended. Even just for a little while. The body’s poetic power lies in its sensitivity.

          Emergency Plan

          Rita Vilhena, Productiehuis Rotterdam

          30 Sep-1 Oct 2014

          Frascati Theater, Amsterdam

        • READ MORE
        • The theatre as a free zone for a contemporary ritual; a real meeting between performers and audiences – this is the starting point for Emergency Plan. Dancer Rita Vilhena travelled to Brazil, where she was inspired by the collective ceremonies of the Santo Daime and the Candomblé: popular expressions of faith full of dance, singing, music and oblations. Vilhena translated the characteristic movements accompanying these into a swinging, heavily performance-oriented show. Emergency Plan premieres at the Rotterdamse Schouwburg on 25 and 25 September.
