PERFORMANCE PROGRAM May 13, 2017, Palazzo Ca' Zanardi, starting from 06:00PM
Laura Astorri and Andrea Jose' Bordoni . Italy - "Organo Lento" - 15' The elemental Spirits are dancing: an ancient body memoir calls them on the stage. A metamorphosis occurs. The human being, always looking for the deepest connection with his axis mundi, can only request the ancestral truths to his own body, to the guts, to the shadowy and forgotten himself. This connection with Cosmos and Gea, the mother and the Earth, becomes real only if you lose yourself: you have to implode and let yourself be reborn, like a cocoon made of a long-lasting dreamy slumber.
Marko Markovic . Croatia - "Anarchy" - 10' Performer will walk through the space and shout loudly "Anarchy". For 10 minutes performer will engage audience on the movement trough the space. While doing so, with repletion of the statement "Anarchy" performer will inspire people to start shouting with him. With this statement performer will celebrate freedom and liberty as basic human rights.
Kelly Melone . Australia - "Reign of Contexti–Venice" - 15' The performance will last for 15 minutes. It will involve "contexti" showering down onto me where I will stand silently under the "curtain" machine. Before the rain of contexti starts, I will enter breathing in Morse code, "SOS" (in breath as the dot, out breath as the dash) wearing a cloak of my stripped and woven handwriting on architecture paper. I will stand silently, and when I take off the cloak the contexti will begin to rain down on me. When the rain of contexti finishes, I will resume, putting my cloak back on, and exit breathing "SOS" in Morse code once more.
Marlena Niestrój . Poland - "Bonds" - 20' The performance is a personal reflection on life entanglements and forces involved: existential and social as well as an unique strength of an individual experience – of empiricism, which torn every human life. The “Bonds” viewers together with the protagonist of the story take a part in a metaphorical initiation journey. During the journey, as in life, extremes – seemingly opposing forces: pleasure and suffering, freedom and shackles, vitality and memento of death complement each other, and, literally, intertwine and entangle.
Marco Sgarbossa . Italy - "Impossible Bouquet" - 20' Increasing technology allows things to dissolve, but if the signifier is now a variable the meaning can remain constant? The investigation begins with this reflection and deals with the theme of changing the state of matter through the perfume translation of a Impossible Bouquet (Jan Van Huysum 1682-1749). Through the modern technique of perfume synthesis, the work poses the question of our perception in relation to objects and practices dissolving from technology.
Sebastiano Sing . Austria - "Yves in Eden" - 20' YVES IN EDEN turns the symbolic story of Adam and Eve in the Garden Eden and the "kick-out" of Paradise into an ongoing ritual. In YVES IN EDEN, the story is slightly turned around: What if we could not have left the Garden Eden? Wouldn’t it be boring to stay in Paradise totally alone? What is the fascination of the construct of Paradise that still works? As the giant apple is made out of concrete, the performer will fail to bite into it, that’s for sure, but finds his way to penetrate orally the metaphor without one single word.
