11:00    Anja Bornšek - Izmenjava znanj /  umetniški laboratorij

           Anja Bornšek / Sharing practices / artistic laboratory

           Vetrinjski dvor

 

Umetniški laboratorij že s svojim imenom obljublja nepričakovano ter negotovo. Je skupni prostor združenih festivalov Platforma ter Performe, ki gostujoče umetnike približujeta publiki ne le skozi uprizorjena dela, temveč skozi konkretne prijeme njihove umetniške prakse. Skupaj bomo poglabljali odnos do neznanega – dovoljeno nam bo naslavljati nerazumljeno, morda tudi nesmiselno, a vsekakor zaznavno ter občutno skozi določene vidike našega bitja oziroma umetniškega udejstvovanja.
Letošnji format, ki bo potekal v želji iskanja novih med-komunikacijskih prostorov med umetnikom, njegovim delom, izvajalci in gledalci, sega v polje izkustvenega vpogleda v umetniška dela in aktivne vključitve gledalca, ter želi raziskati možne procese in izmenjave znanj, ki lahko iz takšnega srečanja vzniknejo in se razvijejo.

Gledalčeva izkušnja vidnega, gibajočega telesa pred njim in ob tem njegova lastna izkušnja telesa sta v polju percepcije za zmeraj ujeta v nenehnem posledično-vzročnem procesu. Kar gledalec vidi in zazna, prehaja vanj in se useda na vsebine notranjih čutilno miselnih zemljevidov, ki jih afektira in v njih odzvanja. Hkrati pa se njegovi spreminjajoči notranji zemljevidi nenehno odpirajo in prodirajo ven, usmerjajo njegove čute, zaznave in sklepanja.
Če torej o sebi razmišljamo kot o aktivnem gledalcu, ki s svojim zavedanjem, prisotnostjo (fizično in mentalno) venomer soustvarja umetniško delo, ki ga percipira, nas tokrat zanima, kako lahko to dejstvo razvijemo še dlje in iščemo načine izkustvenega dialoga, kjer se proces fizične relacije dejansko lahko zgodi. Prostor, v katerem lahko udeleženec v skladu s svojimi zmožnostmi in interesi skozi svoje telo razmišlja, razvija in raziskuje različne ideje, stanja in vprašanja, ki se tesneje ali mimobežno dotikajo specifičnosti določenega umetniškega dela.

Laboratorij bo potekal dva dni in bo zgrajen okoli raziskovanja dveh umetniških pristopov naših dveh gostov, Sebastijana Geča in Mateje Bučar, ki skozi raziskovanje tenke meje med vsakdanjim, reprezentiranim, spregledanim in na novo doživetim vsak na svoj način ustvarjata v polju urbane koreografije.

Umetniški laboratorij je namenjen prav vsem ustvarjalcem, ljubiteljem, teoretikom, in ne le plesnim umetnikom, saj je format namenjen medsebojnemu oplajanju različnih disciplin.

Anja Bornšek (SLO/D) je plesalka, koreografinja in pedagoginja. Diplomirala je na salzburški akademiji za ples SEAD, magistrski študij iz pedagogike sodobnega plesa je končala na Univerzi HfMDK v Frankfurtu, pridobila pa je tudi naziv pedagoginje s področij gibanja in somatike po metodi Body-Mind Centering. Njeno izobraževanje je bilo s štipendijami podprto s strani Ministrstva za kulturo RS ter na magistrski ravni s štipendijo Studienstiftung des Deutchen Volkes. Svoj umetniški jezik je razvijala v sodelovanju s številnimi koreografi in režiserji, kot so Begum Erciyas, Joao da Silva, Matej Kejžar, Snježana Premuš, Jana Menger, Mala Kline, Sebastijan Horvat, Maayan Danoch in Matija Ferlin. Aktivna je kot plesalka, performerka, pedagoginja in ustvarjalka, poleg tega pa v Tanzhaus Düesseldorf razvija in vodi umetniški format, namenjen razvijanju občutljivosti občinstva za plesno umetnost, v katerem se osredotoča na artikulacije utelešenega mišljenja o zaznavi ter ustvarja prostore za aktivno participacijo v umetniškem delu ter poglabljanje odnosa med umetniškim delom in umetnikom.


As suggested already by its title, the Artist’s Lab brings the unexpected and the uncertain. As a common space of the festivals Platform and Performa, it presents our guest artists not only through their works but also through concrete principles of their artistic practice. The lab is aimed at deepening and developing our relation to the unknown – we will namely allow ourselves to address what’s difficult to grasp, or even doesn’t make sense, but is definitely perceived and sensed through certain aspects of our being and/or artistic work.

This year’s format focuses on finding new inter-communication spaces between the artist, the work, the performers and the viewers, adopting an experiential perspective on artistic work. Aimed at developing active participation of the viewer in the artwork, it investigates the processes involved in an exchange of knowledges arising and evolving out of this encounter.

The viewer’s perception of the visible, moving body and the resulting physical experience in the viewer’s body are caught in a continuous process of cause and consequence. What the viewer sees and perceives seeps through into her body and is deposited as sediment on the existing contents of the inner sense-mind maps, where it resonates and affects them in turn. At the same time, the viewer’s continually changing inner maps are always in a process of opening and protruding on the outside, guiding the senses, perceptions and thoughts. Understanding the viewer as active participant in the artwork, one that co-creates the perceived work with her awareness, thoughts, and presence (physical and mental), the lab will focus on the possibilities of how to develop this fact even further and find ways to enter an experiential dialogue, where the physical relation actually occurs. To open up a space in which the participant, with her body and according to her capabilities and interests, thinks, develops and explores different ideas, states and questions that touch upon the specificities of the artwork.

The 2-day lab will bring into focus artistic explorations of our two guest artists, choreographers and makers in the field of urban choreography, Sebastijan Geč and Mateja Bučar, who each in their own ways explore the thin line between everyday movement and representation, between the overlooked and the newly perceived.

The artist’s lab is intended not only to dance artists, but to all makers, theoreticians, thinkers and lovers of art, as it will try to work in the direction of inter and transdisciplinarity.

Anja Bornšek (SLO/D) is a dancer, choreographer and pedagogue. She graduated from contemporary dance at the Salzburg Dance Academy SEAD. She holds a Master’s degree in Contemporary Dance Education from Frankfurt University HfMDK and a Somatic Movement Educator’s certification for Body-Mind Centering method.
A receiver of an art scholarship from the Ministry of Culture Slovenia, as well as a German scholarship Studienstiftung des Deutchen Volkes for her Master’s study, her artistic language was shaped through many performances and collaborations with choreographers and directors, such as Begum Erciyas, Joao da Silva, Matej Kejžar, Snježana Premuš, Jana Menger, Mala Kline, Sebastijan Horvat, Maayan Danoch and Matija Ferlin.
Besides teaching workshops, performing and creating, she has been intensively developing and regularly facilitating an audience format called Physical Introduction in Tanzhaus Düsseldorf, through which she is creating spaces for physical/bodied thinking about perception, active participation and other possible relations between the art work and its viewer.

16:00    Sebastijan Geč - Kaj tako zijaš? / What are you looking at?

            Center mesta

 
Oblečem se za podobo. Ne zase, ne za občinstvo, ne zaradi mode in ne za moške.

— Marlene Dietrich

Pozno popoldne prispe Jackie v svoje rojstno mesto. Na obisku pri sestrični se spomni, da je pozabila ključe od stanovanja v Beogradu. Odloči se za miren sprehod skozi svoje rojstno mesto, katerega je zapustila pred davnim letom 1989. Predstava temelji na izjavi: "Življenje je najboljša predstava."

Idejna zasnova, koreografija in izvedba: Sebastijan Geč
Kostum: Miri Strnad

Sebastijan Geč, rojen v Mariboru, je dokončal privatno plesno akademijo SEAD v Salzburgu. Sodeloval je z Cie. Willi Dorner, Jérômom Belom in s kongoško koreografinjo Elisabeth Bakabambe Tambwe. Njeni zadnji deli Flèche in Las Meninas je pred kratkim predstavil na Donau festivalu v Avstriji. Kot koreograf je med drugim ustvaril predstave Polnočna presoja, Ne išči sreče drugod kot le doma in 7 sekund, ki so bile prikazane tako doma kot v tujini.


I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men.
— Marlene Dietrich

Late in the afternoon Jackie arrives to her birth town. While visiting her cousin she remembers that she had left the keys of her apartment in Belgrade. She decides to take a quiet stroll across her birth town, which she had left long ago, in 1989. The performance is inspired by the sentence: "The ultimative performance is your life."

(Med)prostor

Tukaj sem. Je tudi ona tukaj? Kakšen je prostor med nama? Kakšen je prostor znotraj naju? Prostor povezujeta telo in zvok. Kako se počutiva, če sva eno? Eno. Zavedajoč se dihanja. Čutenja. Gibanja skupaj. Kljub temu sva dve telesi v prostoru. Kako lahko vplivava druga na drugo? S telesom, z mislijo, z energijo, z zavestnim gibom v prostoru.  Kakšna je relacija? Relacija med telesi, zvokom in telesom in tišino ter med prostorom, kjer smo. Prezenca telesa dovoljuje svobodo telesa, v njegovem popolnem obstoju.
"Prisotnost je tiha in subtilna, in včasih je le malce več kot napol razbran namig ali kot dar, ki ga ne razumemo v celoti." (T.S. Eliot.)
Tukaj sva, v prostoru. V gibanju.

(Inter)space

I am here. Is she here too? What is the space between us like? What is the space inside us like? The space is connected by bodies and by sound. How does it feel to be one? One. Conscious of breathing. Sensing. Moving together. Still, there is an interspace between our two bodies in the kinespheric space.  How can we influence one another? With the body, with thought, energy, conscious movement in space. What is the relation? Relation between bodies, between sound and silence, between silence and the space we are in. The presence of the body allows freedom. The body in its full presence and subtleness.
˝The presence is quiet and subtle, and sometimes it is little more than a hint half guessed, a gift half understood.¨ (T.S. Eliot.)
We are here, in space. Moving.

Fleš

plesna predstava (delo v procesu)

Fleš je preblisk o prenasičenosti in praznini, o slepoti in nevidnosti, brezbrižnosti in previdnosti, o evforiji in apatiji, o pozabi in nespečnosti. Je vrzel med telesom in mislimi. Ekstremi, zmeda  in vprašanje, ali je resničnost le to, v kar verjamemo.

April Veselko je mlada plesalka in ustvarjalka, ki je plesno pot je začela pri Plesni izbi, letos pa zaključila tudi plesno izobraževanje v Bologni v Italiji. Redno se udeležuje domačih in tujih plesnih festivalov (Poletna in zimska plesa šola, ImpulsTanz, IDW Budapest, El Danseu Festival...). April je sodelovala v projektih različnih koreografov (Gregor Luštek, Eduardo Torroja, Mattia Gandini, Barbara Kanc, Katarina B. Kavčič, Jure Masten...), projekt "Fleš" pa bo njen tretji daljši avtorski solo pod produkcijo Zavoda Federacija.

Pogovor o predstavah vodi: Anja Bornšek


Flash

dance performance (work in progress)

Flash is a manifestation of oversaturation and emptiness, blindness and invisibility, carelessness and carefulness, euphoria and apathy, oblivion and sleeplessness. It is a gap between the body and the mind. Extreme states, confusion and wondering whether reality truly is only what we believe in.

April Veselko is a young dancer and author. She started her dance training at Plesna Izba Maribor and has just finished her studies in Bologna, Italy, while regularly taking classes and workshops in dance festivals at home and abroad (Summer and Winter dance schools, ImpulsTanz Vienna, IDW Budapest, El Danseu Festival...). As performer April has collaborated with different choreographers, such as Gregor Luštek, Eduardo Torroja, Mattia Gandini, Barbara Kanc, Katarina B. Kavčič, and Jure Masten. Flash is her third evening-length solo produced by Federacija Institute.

Dragi prijatelji in prijatelji prijateljev, bodite prijazni. Saj želite biti prijazni. Prijaznost je prijazna. Bodite prijazni do lastne sreče. Vestno dela za vas.

Dear friends and friends' friends! Be nice. You do want to be nice. Niceness is nice. Be nice to your own happiness. It’s working for you dutifully.
Be proud of yourself. For once in your modest existence, feel the pride. Learn how to kneel down in front of your own feet. Wash and kiss them.
Serve others to please yourself.
