Weave 2013

Weave – an alternative mass arts residency
Brussels, 29 September – 07 October

We are now accepting applications from risk-taking, curious and involved professionals who are open to commit to an intense and exploratory process within an intricate community setting. Suitable applicants are selected on a first come first serve basis and our application deadline is Sunday 15 September.

7 days
60 artists
1 abandoned building
the focus: community and improvisation

In September 2013, sixty professional dance, theatre and performance artists from across the globe will come together for one week in a huge abandoned factory building in Brussels. They will meet and form a temporary community within which they will play, question, and perform together in order to explore the interaction of improvisation and community.

How do you conceive to strengthen a community through the practice of improvisation?

Das ipod-Orakel / The ipod oracle
Munich:  Dance- and Performancefestival 23 -25 August 2013

http://isarsprudel.wordpress.com

Bottlefed – Kathrin Yvonne Bigler und Rebeca Fernandez Lopez

Dem Überfluss und Druck ständiger Selbstoptimierung unserer Zeit wird hier bewusst ein reduziertes Performanceformat gegenübergestellt, das verstärkt einzelne Begegnungen sowie Momente der Intimität und Sinnlichkeit betont. Das ipod-Orakel wird als zweisames Ritual praktiziert, um einen Dialog zu schaffen. Münchnerinnen und Münchner sind dazu eingeladen, persönliche Fragen und Wünsche zu formulieren und sich in der Eigendynamik von Zuhören und Analysieren einer transzendenten Offenbarung hinzugeben.

Bottlefed in collaboration with visual artist Mohéna Kuehni

melanos: black – melan: ink – topos : place

‘Noircir’: Das Dunkle, die Melancholie, die Träume, die Phantasmen schaffen sich Platz, bis der ganze Raum in Schwarz getaucht ist. Tinte ist das Medium des Schreibens und Zeichnens, zwei Aktivitäten, um Spuren zu hinterlassen, um Geschichte und Geschichten zu erzählen.

Wird dieser Raum tatsächlich eine Projektionsfläche oder schafft das Abdunkeln des Raums einen Projektionsraum?

English
‘Noircir’: Darkness, melancholy, dreams, phantasms make space for themselves until the room is completely dipped in black. Ink is the medium for writing and drawing; two activities for leaving traces, recounting history and telling stories.

Will this room actually turn into a projection surface or does the darkening create a space for projection?

 

 

tête-à-tête

Jan to Jul – ‘Das Kulturbüro @ Manuelschule – Bern

Bottlefed, in partnership with Manuelschule, were selected by the educational authorities of Berne to run a semester-long cultural project as part of its new arts and education programme tête-à-tête. An empty class room is transformed into a cultural office: A port of call, a place to exchange, inspire, ignite and bring together cultural creations within the school. The project involves 5 core classes from all different year groups, who will create their own work to be presented at a school festival in July.
