Open call for MPA–B: An evening of wishes

We would like to invite you to present short performances around the theme 'wishes'.

Just take it open: think about your wishes in life, for your future or your health. Or wishes you have for this planet, your folk, the humanity in general or someone in particular. The work could be a performance, a speech, a poem or a piece of unplugged music. Time limit is 12 minutes. Important note: you would have to leave the spot clean within this timeframe. There will only be a spotlight and an wall socket.

This is why we will prefer simple works. There is a spot, a space. - bring your body and as little else as possible.

Deadline 16. April 2014. Note that you do not need to be absolutely sure about what you want to show. Just give us an idea of what sort of act it will. Meaning performance, speech or music. Important to us is the timeframe you are planning with. The evening of wishes shall take place at 18.may start 20.00 until 24.00 in connection with the MPA 2014 at THE HUB

MPA-B co-labourer Richard Raabensaat makes an open call: 

Open Call for participation on the „Teufelsberg“ Berlin on May 16th and 17th 2014

Within the Month of Performance 2014 (MPA) there will be some performances and some presentations of painters and sculputurers on the „Teufelsberg“  On Friday, May 16th  And on saturday May 17th. Artists who work in one or several of this medie are called to send proposals and to tell, what they want to do.

It would be good if the artwork would have a certain relationship to the location. The former NSA Station on the devils mountain has a very vivid history which is present in every stone up there. So the artwork should show some interest in the very special situation. It is possible to paint a picture, to dance a time based sculpture or do do anything which relates to the buildings or the history of the secret services which have done their secret things up there, deep in the forest for a long time. But the history of the mountain begins long before and this could be a theme also on this weekend in may.

Performer Stammtisch: Why isn't it happening?

Because you aren’t. Performer Stammtisch has been an open network since it beginnings in 2003. Network means it is a tool that anyone who feels connected to it can use. And open means there is no obligation to do so. We finished running the regular open performance showcase meetings 1 1/2 years ago, because we got tired of working for free to make artists work for free. So we stopped. There seems to be not much use for what is left.

We offered to start a new series of meetings to talk about issues of interest for performance artists. There hasn’t been a lot of response. The meetings we had were great, but there were only 3 or 4 during 1 1/2 years. Why? Because no one except 3 or 4 people from the open network that is Performer Stammtisch had anything to discuss. So obviously there is not a lot of need for a platform of discuss Performance Art. At least this one. OK, I throw up my hands in resignation. I ask: What should we do with Performer Stammtisch. And why? Should we have a meeting and talk about it? Or has Performer Stammtisch, with some performance art venues now established in town, with the Month of Performance Art happening every year, and APAB e.V. slowly emerging, just run its course and we don’t need it anymore? 

Dissolved – the Uncanny Valley

DEUTSCHE VERSION UNTEN!

A performance by Florian Feigl and Christopher Hewitt with Julian Maynard Smith/Station House Opera.

In a videostream between Sophiensæle and a gallery in London an uncanny new space is generated: half there, half not there, caught in a perpetual cross-fade. A door opens wide in London and slams shut in Berlin.  A wall exists and doesn’t, putting up an invisible barrier. 

Two times three performers bring their bodies and identies into this virtual world. People and objects find they are both one thing and another, sometimes dissolving together to make a third. The audience follows actions and their digital echo on stage and screen at once.

For Dissolved, Florian Feigl and Christopher Hewitt collaborate with Julian MAynard Smith of the legendary London performance group Station House Opera. A newly developed video stream technology allows to dissolve both stages in real time. The installation will be open to the public during the day, and can be tried out. You can merge with an international partner, more than 1.000 km away!

Performances: Premiere March 6, shows March 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22; 20:30 h, Tickets 13/8 Euro, book tickets at sophiensaele.com or call 030 283 52 66.

Installation: March 7 - 22, Wednesday- Saturday 12:00 - 19:30 h, free admission.

Bad people or: the new Performer Stammtish website

  • Monday, 09 December 2013 13:53
  • Written by

I shouldn't be surprised, because I know that there are bad people. And bad people do bad things. But I am surprised when bad (but smart) peope do stupid things. This is what happened last weekend, when a hacker broke into the Stammtisch website (it was our fault, since we were running an outdated version of Joomla and didn't completly change to the new version yet) and abused it for sending out spam. Our hoster realized this quickly and shut down the account. Cleaning up the mess took some time, but luckily we were prepared and the relaunched website of Performer Stammtisch was (almost) ready. Since yesterday night everything is running smoothly again. However - we've lost some of the user-data, which means, you will have to register again, if you want to post articles. A small how-to will be published soon too. Until then, we hope you enjoy the new website.

a.pass: Call for Artistic Research Projects

  • Friday, 06 December 2013 00:00
  • Written by

Deadline: 15/01/2014
to start in 05/2014

Selection talks : 29 & 30/01/2014
 (please keep these days free!)

a.pass is a one year artistic research program open to artists and theoreticians with an interest in exploring the performative and/or spatial dimensions of their practice. if you are working in the performing arts and want to start an artistic research in a professional research environment, free from production constraints, or if the concepts of performativity or/and scenography are (relatively) new to you and you want to explore them in-depth, in relation to your own practice then a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies) can offer you a one year post master program in which you develop your research project. In a context of self-organization and collaboration you create a personal trajectory through workshops, individual mentorings and interactions with the other participants. At the end of this period, you present and communicate your research.

beside the post master programs a.pass invites artists and theoreticians engaged in a PhD in the Arts to develop independent artistic and transdisciplinary projects producing knowledge and tools relating to the key issues of the a.pass program. The a.pass context is designed to give the possibility to develop your skills as an independent and critical researcher and provides you with the context and instruments that answer to your specific questions and needs. Participants of a.pass manage their own research in continuous interaction with the other participants and, by doing so, engage in the organization of the shared curriculum.
practical: The a.pass program is a 12-month program consisting of three blocks of four months. The first three months of each block take place within the organized collective research environment. Participants develop their personal trajectory in a constant communication with the other participants and co-ordinators, through participation in workshops, with feed-back from dedicated mentors and through the choice of personal mentors. The last month of each block is open for the further individual development of the research project.

a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies)is an international research and training centre for artists and theoreticians, based on the principles of self-organization, collaboration and trans-disciplinarity. Out of the notions of performativity and the performative space, a.pass offers researchers the possibility to develop their skills as independent artistic researchers in a collective learning environment, constructing their individualized curriculum in constant dialogue with their environment. a.pass wants to develop, archive and share tools for a qualitative and societally relevant research practice.
