Roaming // Claudia Heu (AT) & Axel Brom (AT)

…And suddenly a pathway beckons from above. Forcefully. (Claudia)
My body is captured in the image that the world offers me at the moment. (Axel)

Claudia Heu and Axel Brom invite friends, acquaintances and strangers. What still undiscovered, possibly forgotten rooms open up when we align ourselves with the timeless and with what time drops into our arms. What happens, what occurs, when our bodies look and our senses move.We recommend to come without a bag/pack or keep it light.

Corsican & Sicilian Polyphonic Singing WORKSHOP led by Clélia Colonna (FR/AT) & Irene Coticchio (IT/AT) (cowbirds)

Sat 24th June – Sun 25th June 2017 // 10am-2pm
Im_flieger@Schokoladenfabrik // Gaudenzdorfergürtel 43–45/4. Stock/4C
1120 Wien (U4 Margaretengürtel) >> map

During the workshop, we will focus on the principles of polyphonic singing from Corsica and Sicily and work with specific modes and songs. Unlike a choir, polyphonic singing obeys to the rules of own initiative. There is no conductor, the construction is organic and collective. Each voice has a specific role (bassa supports, secunda leads, terza pulls). The song appears through voices being autonomous and evolving a-parallely. There is an interactivity, a constant negotiation between the individual and the collective; the “one”, alone, and the “three” of polyphony.

In the field of embryology—a subdiscipline of developmental biology—the very first week after the conception of a human being takes on a special significance: At this time the very first design principles come into effect. Three female artists set off at the interface of dance, performance, sound, language and science on the trail of structures that run through our entire lives.
Where does our human existence actually begin? With birth? With the formation of the brain? One generally speaks of a human being as of the eighth week after conception. Yet what happens before that, as of the “zero hour,” as of conception? It is known that already when the first cells divide rhythm and orientation in space play a part. These ordering principles remain anchored in the body cells. Fascinated by these processes, the actress Alexandra Sommerfeld (AT), together with the two dancers/choreographers Anna Sedlačková (SK) and Helena Nicolao (D/CH), pose the question of the effects of this development on our lives today. The women artists embark on a search for traces of the very first structures and their echo in current life in order to translate them into movement and language. A soundscape with compositions by Günther Rabl and François Bayle provides an acoustic frame to the performance while Veronika Tupy’s stage design and the costumes of Dorota Cigánková supply the optical frame.

The Ensemble
The performers got to know each other during a four-year somatic training program. Their common background as performing artists, but also their similar questioning of social developments, as well as the deep interest in movement analysis as an empirical method brought them together eye to eye as a team and called forth the desire to further pursue the theme of prenatal identity between the poles of individual self-discovery and cultural imprinting in it´s artistic implementation.

Shortly after fertilisation, the first instances of cell division form three layers, three bodies from which subsequently our body unfolds. These early structures are anchored in our cellular memory. With the help of images and appropriate guidance, we are able to go back in our body memory and enter spaces we formerly used to inhabit. In this, our subjective perception is no less significant than the objective, universally valid knowledge about this stage of development.
In this workshop we are working with delving into these memories, at the same time investigating how to achieve an artistic expression of these body-immanent spaces, shapes, and processes.

And because the performer and author Sabina Holzer’s engagement with writing and materiality has led to body and movement, has led her into the unexpacted, let her into temptation, led her through; this has led to – an invitation. An invitation to try something. Writing the space, for instance. Developing a common texture. A cast. With and without wands.
Sabina Holzer investigates the possibilities of creating a situation in which a joint sensitisation for space and time – and thus for togetherness – can take effect. Situation here should be understood as “situation of…”, i.e., without explicit reference to a subject. Rather, the reference is to something situated – seated, put, affected – and our personal movements with these circumstances. Thus this togetherness also is an engagement with presences and absences, and their interplay.

IF I HAD A HAMMER… is about the appropriation and fantasy of male sexuality.
The two performers empower themselves in a lustful way questioning everyday ́s gender performance.
You may ask why I do it. Because I can!

The spaces that are created oscillate between intimate fantasies about the physical body and potential fields of action through the social body. The perception of gender is constructed, destructed, transformed. At he same time the audience is addressed – working out power situations and consensus.
The penis is researched as body part, tool, contact medium or as means of expression during sex; The all day penis, the (un)controlled penis, it´s social and physical roles and its relationships.
“I´m waiting for my cock to grow. (…) I´m waiting for the power, the recognition, the lust…” (TESTO JUNKIE, Paul B. Preciado)
The research material in the center are interviews by 15 women (age 29–65), which images and sound melt into the performance.

Johanna Nielson and Julia Danzinger know each other for over 10 years, sharing again and again research moments that deal with the reflection and discoveries of differentiated physicalities. IF I HAD A HAMMER … is their first collaboration.
Stefan Voglsinger and Julia Danzinger collaborated already in 2014 for the performance and the corespondent festival „Drifting Towards Non_Existence“.

The artist and performer Lisa Hinterreithner explores visual, spatial, and physical patterns as alterable events. Space, materials and human bodies are approached as abstract-poetical scenes of patterns.
According to the art theoretician Annette Tietenberg, patterns are suitable for non-verbal communication systems. How does this apply within an artificial situation such as, e.g., a performance? Can patters function as a “social bond” between space, performer, and audience by transferring, combining and transforming them?
The Residency is part of a project on the theme of patterns, which the performance artist Lisa Hinterreithner is developing together with the visual artist Lilo Nein. A live performance will be given in Winter in collaboration with the musician Elise Mory.

Regarding the Question inquires the relations between the Idea and its concrete presentation in an artistic process, it questions the intercourse between the inner and the surface, between the existential loneliness of the singular I, as entity and one, and its striving for he other.

Where ever he found himself located, he was dedicated to realize a daily performance. The performer played with the image of an artist – shaman as a detector whose self perception formed the base of a non linear survey sounding out the invisible, the not outspoken and setting relations of the un-defined into contrast with the premises of the urban surrounding.

comb with a silent b is a dance project between two people that emerges out of imagining what can come from taking more time. Through the choreography Asher O’Gorman and Tara Silverthorn imagine physically how it is possible to become less serious about the serious, and more serious about the less serious.

SUPPORT the first recording of COWBIRDS via crowd-founding! SUPPORT>>

During the workshop, we will focus on the principles of polyphonic singing from Corsica and Sicily and work with specific modes and songs. Unlike a choir, polyphonic singing obeys to the rules of own initiative. There is no conductor, the construction is organic and collective. Each voice has a specific role (bassa supports, secunda leads, terza pulls). The song appears through voices being autonomous and evolving a-parallely. There is an interactivity, a constant negotiation between the individual and the collective; the “one”, alone, and the “three” of polyphony.

People incessantly create a shield that offers them shelter, drawing a firmament on its underside and writing their conventions and opinions on it; the poet, the artist though makes a slit into this shield, he even rips up the firmament in order to let a bit of free and windy chaos intrude, and in a sudden ray of light frames a vision which appears through the slit. (Deleuze/Guattari, From Chaos to the Brain)

The third space of performance is created not as an assertion, it arises as a fault line of the two layered continents VISUAL ART & THEATRE ART. Both continents have a varied experience with ephemeral materials and figurative or form union concretisations. Now the REAL moves these two continents toward each other. The resulting fault line reveals new landscapes.

THE HAPPENING // Tami Lebovits (IL)

In the solo piece THE HAPPENING Tami Lebovits stages herself as a reasonable being. A soloist body producing voice in a scenery of silent objects. The piece is a series of actions, kinetic and vocal sculptures, operated by coordination of mechanics and emotions.
THE HAPPENING offers a transgression of the “self” as autobiographical, rather setting it as a format.

What is // Adriana Cubides (CO/AT) Early stage research sharing

A search inside the body looking for its past, searching for its inscriptions, cultural imprints, belief systems, experiences, feelings and conditionings, with the wish to move forward without repeating the same patterns and paradigms, asking myself how to rewrite the body and give to the unknown with the same rules that condition us?

Tools and working materials of this two-day workspace opening are the artistic and discursive settings of the artists of the Stoffwechsel project, who have been researching since February, 2016. The respective working methods, motivations, and inspirations provide the workbenches for a possible permeation and parasitation; the Own which opens up to the Other, finds itself in the Other and thus provokes the ever fragile boundaries of authorship and collective process, of deallocation and appropriation.

“Distributive agency. The political urgency of a new materialism and its implications for contemporary choreography”
Lecture in english language by Martina Ruhsam (AT/DE)
“The body refers to the materialist but also vitalist groundings of human subjectivity and to the specifically human capacity to be both grounded and to flow and thus to transcend the very variables – class, race, sex, gender, age, disability – which structure us. It rests on a postidentitarian view of what constitutes a subject. A nomadic vision of the body defines it as multi-functional and complex, as a transformer of flows and energies, affects, desires and imaginings.” (Rosi Baidotti)

© Markus Sepperer // Background: draft of the EU flag, Rem Koohlhaas

A GESTURE FOR EUROPE.
a movement is the beginning of my exploration of a transnational community. I am following the question of European identity/identities, putting them into the body. In search of signs and gestures signalising an affirmation of plurality and difference, of symbols of inclusion already existing and emerging besides the EU flag’s christian appearance.
The evening takes place in the shape of a performative conversation, in which my body’s cultural and subjective knowledge also expresses itself. The body’s thinking in movements generating and dissolving identity, in legible and illegible (abstract) signs is investigated. A complex thinking process about our conception of democracy and identity seems important to me. How can we live democracy without being directly bound to a national state? How canidentity, dynamic and never wholly completed and certain, still give a feeling of security?

a movement connects to the spirit of the diem25 movement, founded in February 2016 by Yanis Varoufakis, and giving the process of bringing the demos back to democracy 25 years. April 20 is the first invitation to think about Europe together and get our thoughts moving, translate them – seriously, playfully, poetically, pragmatically. In an examination of possibilities.

A polling booth for yourmovement voice – a gesture for Europe – is waiting for you.

BRIGITTE WILFING (AT) focuses on choreographic works situated in the transition area between visual and performing arts and on artistic research, where she initiates and participates in collaborative projects of artists and theoreticians. Her solo-pieces and her works at the interface of new and experimental music and movement in collaboration with contemporary music ensembles and composers are shown at home and abroad. 2013/14 she conceived the script »stop listening start screaming« which was premiered at the Junge Oper Stuttgart. In 2014, she co-curated the discursive performance festivalOPEN for the University of Applied Arts Vienna, and from 2012–2014 co-managed the performance evenings of the University’s department for transmedial art. Co-curator of the series Performance als Lecture (Kunsthalle Wien) and the symposium and laboratory pornonom (Tanzquartier, WUK). Since 2011 she has been a member of the Im_flieger_team.

An online-experiment by Annie Abrahams (NL) & Martina Ruhsam (AT/DE) besides,compressed by communication is a real-time composition in which daily objects interrelate in an interface that usually frames the heads of humans. Annie Abrahams and Martina Ruhsam communicate by juxtaposing and resituating objects and by reading a text that is recomposed during the course of the performance.Once again they investigate the performative potential of computer-mediated performance.By listening to each others gestures they choreograph each other despite being geographically far away from each other – Annie is in Montpellier, Martina in Vienna.

MARTINA RUHSAM (AT/DE) is working as a choreographer, performer and writer. She studied Movement Studies & Performance in Linz and Theatre-, Film- and Mediastudies in Vienna. From October 2008 to March 2009 she was vicarious head of the theory-centre in Tanzquartier Wien. In 2011 her book Kollaborative Praxis: Choreographie was published by Turia + Kant. Her artistic work and collaborative projects were presented at various venues and festivals in Europe (e.g.: Wiener Festwochen, Tanzquartier Wien, brut, Kino Šiška, Mladi Levi Festival, Museum of Applied Arts Vienna, Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova) – predominantly in Austria and Slovenia. From 2007 until 2014 most of her performances were realised in co-authorship with the Slovene visual artist and director Vlado Gotvan Repnik. She is a member of the editorial board of Maska and has given lectures internationally. Currently she is writing a PhD at the Justus-Liebig-University in Gießen.

ANNIE ABRAHAMS (NL/FR) has a doctoral (M2) in biology from the University of Utrecht and a MA2 from the Academy of Fine Arts of Arnhem. In her work, using video and performance as well as the Internet, she questions the
possibilities and limits of communication in general and more specifically investigates its modes under networked conditions. She is known worldwide for her netart and collective writing experiments and is an internationally regarded pioneer of networked performance art. From 2002 till 2005 she taught at the University of Montpellier in the Arts Department. She curated the project InstantS, the Breaking Solitude and Double Bind webperformances series for panoplie.org (2006–2009). In 2012 she co-organised the first Cyposium and published an article on webcam mediated communication and collaboration in JAR #2. In 2013 she started with Emmanuel Guez the ReadingClub project. In 2014 she published two books: from estranger to e-stranger; and CyPosium – the book,co-edited with Helen Varley Jamieson.

Bearing Witness: Trauma and the Body in Film and Animation

‘…the image’s role in the process of bearing witness relies not only on the image’s technological ability to furnish empirical evidence of the traumatic event, but on the image’s phenomenological capacity to bring that event into iconic presence and to mediate the intersubjective relations that ground the act of bearing witness’.
Guerin, F. & Hallas, R., ed. (2007) The Image and the Witness, London, Wallflower Press

Both Wenninger and Young make short, experiential, visceral films that bear witness to transgressions against the body and psychological or physical trauma. In this discursive event they present a series of film screenings and discussion between filmmakers, and audience, the metabolism of traumatic memory, and a repossession of the act of witnessing.

***
Paul Wenninger (AT) is a freelance dancer, author of choreographic works and filmmaker with focus on pixilation and animation. Since 1999 he is the artistic director of Kabinett ad Co., a working platform for interdisciplinary projects with focusing on the body. His works have been shown internationally and received several awards. www.kabinettadco.at

Susan Young (GB) is a BAFTA-nominated animation director whose commissioned work is notable for its dynamic movement and fluid linear qualities. She is currently researching animation’s capacity as a medium for processing psychological trauma at the Royal College of Art, London, using autobiographical material and experimenting with new animation styles. http://susanyounganimation.com

***
Im_flieger INVITES is a discursive format, implemented since 2006, and based on the principle of invitation. A local artist is invited to invite another artist for a dialogue about their art works, practices, processes and ideas. The focus is on the juxtaposition of various aesthetic, media, political, and social perspectives. The exchange and the process of communication are giving the base for the public presentation at the end of the process.

A study of the “being- in- twos”. Searching and finding contact points. A stretching of one body over to another.


In their new work, Steffi Wieser and Martina Rösler explore the potential of empathy amongst interacting bodies, ways of touching and being touched. They are interested in the haziness of these meeting points. What do you see, understand and feel in these compounds and how do these perceptual experiences differ? The discrepancy between the inner sensation and outer image, playing with concrete movement and blurred intention and the other way around is the starting point of the choreographic study.

Through the intermediate areas of inner consciousness and outer projection the performance negotiates the I, the you and a potential we.

I am named Milagros after my grandmother and an old Spanish beauty. I am from Calamocos, a village in the north of Spain where people fight crisis with faith and flowers, where a saint carries his tongue in his hand and where women hide needles in their bras so that men don´t come too close. Although my village has an odd sounding name, since “moco” means snot, it is a place full of beauty and tradition I cannot leave. No one from Calamocos really manages to leave this place.
This is the story of my home through my mouth and my body and also through the memories of my grandmother.

“It is a painful separation that brings her back to recollect the female line of her identity. With her presence, her charisma and her personality she takes the audience with her on a journey treading the fine line between folklore and contemporary performative practices.”

Free entrance!

After one month in residency at Im flieger, we would like to invite you to an open rehearsal where we will perform some of the developed materials and speak about the future of our coming work.
“Excitement of our people” is attempting to create a systematized way of generating meaning by physically negotiating the development of a potential event. The aim is to create an abstract fiction where the difference between form and content is blurred and happens only in the mind of the viewer.

Vienna is the first station of the artistic and theoretical exchange format The Art of Encountering – 8 artists from Mainland China are visiting the network partners from Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Germany during a tour lasting six weeks.
Initiator PAErsche – Performance Art Laboratory, which is based in Cologne, invites artists from different countries and regions of the Far East to provide a distribution of their practices and the theoretical backgrounds of their cultural activities. http://paersche.org/portfolio/art-of-encountering-iv-to-come/

Im_flieger in cooperation with the Vienna-based ChinaCultureDesk created an evening with performances by 4 Chinese artists (He Chengyao / Feng Weidong / Xiang Xishi / Zhou Bin) and 4 Austrian artists, the gesture of “showing to each other“ as a direct form of intercultural encounter. Different talk and discourse formats will be conducted by ChinaCultureDesk between the individual performances, conveying intercultural, historical and artistic background knowledge to the audience and by this contextualization allowing a better understanding of the artistic interventions from the Chinese cultural sphere and vice versa.

Acting and thinking in intensities. That it takes an untouchable to meet, is supported as an active peculiarity between cultures, an essential, floating medium.
How should be the touching like, that the untouchable stays unaffected in all, innumerable shaped act in situations? Boris Nieslony (ASA European, PAErsche, Black Market), initiator and curator of the series “The Art of Encountering”

Performance artists from China, presenting works at Im_flieger

Zhou Bin
* 1970 in Xi’an, lives and works in Chengdu, where he organized the UP ON International Live Art Festival. He mostly makes minimalist long-term performances, in which he goes hard to the limits of his body, thus expanding the understanding of performativity.

He Chengyao
* 1964 in Sichuan, she lives and works in Beijing, makes photo and video works and performance art; the confrontation with the mental illness of her mother, which she describes as a private ideology or escape, characterizes her work. Performing naked, e.g., placing herself at the Great Wall of China, she initially provoked great controversy in China in terms of the traditional image of women. More recent one-to-one works are very intimate. ‘I want to show that we are all seeking light in our lives but that it’s an illusory thing and you can never catch it… our destiny is in other people’s hands.’

Feng Weidong
* 1969 in Beijing, grew up in Inner Mongolia, lives and works in Beijing. He practiced the “objectification of the body”. “Then there may be just a line between beauty and ugliness thin deep in your mind; at this moment the mind is subverting the peace and communicating with yourself.”

Xiang Xishi
* 1970 China, lives and works in Xi’an as manager at the Contemporary Art Center, where he has organized the Guyu Action Contemporary Performance Art Festival with Wang Chuyu and others since 2007. He is a teacher, internationally well networked, and regularly presents contemporary performance and live art in China. In his performances he sometimes interacts very directly with the audience.

in dialogue with performance artists from Austria

Daniel Aschwanden (CH/AT) & Conny Zenk (AT) // Selfie Shamanism (extract)
live performance and multi-channel audio-video installation
How is the dancing body trapped in realities between absence and digital simulation and its challenged physical presence in the face of its own double as a digital shadow? Unspectacular everyday movements are interrupted by expressive gestures, manifest tensions, visualize nameless distances, bridge the abysmal difference between the visible and the invisible.
Performer and choreographer Daniel Aschwanden in collaboration with media artist Conny Zenk use practices such as face.scanning: digitally produced and graphically edited videos, which are complemented by a soundtrack composed by Veronika Mayer. They demonstrate large-scale projections, which rely on the practices of Selfies and and approach them with new questions rather than with answers. http://art-urban.org

Jan Machacek (AT/MX) // Shadow Replay (extract)
The Media Performance Shadow Replay is a reflection on the relationship between north and south, Austria and Mexico, and the aftermath of colonial history. As a European in Mexico the performer Jan Machacek investigates his role and responsibility in a globalized present. The performance is an encounter between real and digital shadow. http://jan-machacek.klingt.org

Gertrude Moser-Wagner (AT) // Like a Bridge
Gertrude Moser-Wagner challenges the relations between East and West by way of with one’s own past in one’s country and performs a thinking, groping action. http://www.moser-wagner.com, http://www.taste.at

Brigitte Wilfing (AT) // Zeichnungen (extract)
In the phrased play of two arms and hands with torso and head, images are formed which make the body legible in its cultural and social construction. The performer generates temporary identities, which increasingly evade the representation of social order. By focussing on the body’s own material life, its presence gains prominence. By turning to the substantive life of its own body its presence occurs in the foreground. It becomes the subject of experience and is drawing. http://www.brigittewilfing.com

From March 19th – 26th, 2015 Anita Kaya (AT), Matan Levkowich (AT/IL), Claire Lefévre (FR/AT) were hosted by Kelim in Bat Yam. In July 2015 Anat Danieli (IL), Tami Lebovitz (IL), Moshe Shechter Avshalom (IL) and Shira Eviatar (IL) will be guests at Im_flieger@schokoladenfabrik in Vienna.
The artists from both centres are presenting dance performances open to the public and the artistic directors are introducing their venues and vision. In addition to these public events, the artists will hold three days of meetings and discourses in which they will present their working methods and will develop the program for future projects and collaboration in 2016/17.
More www.imflieger.net

REPETITIONS OF PARTS OF ME
was created out of an interest and desire to investigate how empathy is woven. The initial motivation was to create a training ground to identify and empathize with any “other“ in an artistic creation/act.
The rehearsals were held in the Museum in order to expose and being exposed in a state of search and research. Performing in a gallery space, allows to establish physical relations with the spectators. The spectators are an integral part of the composition and work, and the empathy experiment, of people acting on a joint common plane.
Choreografie/Performance: Anat Danieli in Zusammenarbeit mit Tami Lebovitz
Premiere: August 2012 / Bat Yam Museum / Israel

press extracts:

“Something very intriguing and clever going on tonight at the Tel Aviv museum. This dance has great modesty, and basic reference to dancing body and mind that seeks interaction with viewers.” Yael Efrat, Timeout Tel Aviv

“Actually there is no stage at all, and precisely because of this, a refined quality is achieved… quality of conscious body, devoid of energy of a show. Intimate atmosphere, the quality of the composition, a complete lack of manners… I admit that I couldn’t resist the temptation.” Ruth Eshel, Haaretz

” The project at the museum invites to rethink our habits as creators and viewers to shake old orders and create new possibilities. Over the years, Danieli engaged in the study of dance and settings of a physical and emotional involvement of dancers and audience”. Hagit Peleg Rotem, Globs

ABOUT KELIM
In 2009 choreographer Anat Danieli along with Tal Gravinsky and a group of emerging young choreographers established a new choreography centre in the city of Bat Yam. They named it ‘Kelim – A body for choreographic work’. Kelim was conceived as a place for thought, experiment, entrepreneurship and training in choreography. Nowadays the centre holds classes, workshops and performances which are related to the research and dialogue between creation, creators, audience and community. It also holds a biannual program for choreographers and functions as a home for creative support for choreographers and artistic processes. It produces works, offers residencies, artistic mentoring and performance space. Kelim sees itself as part of the new wave of selfreflection within the local Israeli contemporary dance scene. It is driven by a premise of questioning and challenging the existing order and methods.
Lecture will portrait KELIM through various artists with different visions, subjects and artistic practices. We would like to speak and to present images and videos about the people that are active in Kelim and create a community of discourse and mutual growth.

BODY ROOTS
What constructs the self?
Body Roots is a solo performance examining images and representations of my family and how they are carried in my body and mind. Utilizing masks of my family members I explore these images based on a belief that the personal is political. The work explores an intersubjective approach that perceives each individual as constructed from ones context and from the relationships of each individual with the others. The piece was created as part of the choreography program of Kelim.
Premiere: June 2014, ‘fresh – Tanztage Braunschweig’ festival.
Choreografie/Performance: Shira Eviatar
Duration: 25 min, Music: Reflections of my life by the Marmalades
The piece was created as part of the choreography program of Kelim.

ANAT DANIELI (IL)

In 2009–11 Danieli has been co-directing the “New Dance” festival at Hazira – Interdisciplinary Arena in Jerusalem, with choreographer Arkadi Zaides.

How would it be as a man?
Would the sex be good? Better? Worse?
Would I get what I want?

The performance plays with the appropriation of male sexuality.
It reflects with humor the fantasies of the performer of social assumptions and extended fields of action.

Ton_Spur is another contribution to focus Im_flieger LIVING ARCHIVE. Im_flieger LIVING ARCHIVE is fed from the archive that is stored in the minds and bodies, boxes and harddrives of individual protagonists. In the absence of systematic archiving, there is little public information on artistic works and structural developments of Austrian contemporary dance in the eighties and nineties. Im_flieger LIVING ARCHIVE is working on visualizing this.

was a research and performance collective with it’s home base at the WUK, Vienna, initiated by Daniel Aschwanden after his return from Tokyo. The training and the artistic work were based on the methods of Body Weather Laboratory (BWL), developed by Japanese dancer Min Tanaka in the early eighties and is a synthesis of Eastern and Western practices. Body Weather Vienna performed in theaters and public spaces in Vienna, Italy and Spain, also in cooperation and exchange with other Body Weather Labs.

The body as an instrument – a transdisciplinary experimental arrangement at theinterface between man and machine. Veronika Mayerböck (ALLES oder LICHT) and her team of Simon Laburda, Jorge SánchezChiong and Talia Radford develop a mobile “light instrument”, the prototype of an electronic sensor system, which transforms light into music. This research is supported by ImpulseXS *. Attached to different parts of the body, “light instrument” allows its wearer by means of movement to interact “acousticly” with its environment. Several light sensors on the body continuously measure the ambient light mood in the room, which in turn is audible as soundscape and is controlled by the movement. The performer is equally to the sensor and interactive element. The body becomes a “seeing ear” and moves especially after hearing that determines the orientation of perception, and is not intended as usually by the eye.

Within the 2-week transdisciplinary laboratory LIGHTSCORES the choreographic and installations scope and applications of the portable “light instrument” are practically explored and examined discursively. Guests of specialized disciplines provide inputs and are invited to experiment and exchange. The emphasis here is the acoustic development of sound spaces andchoreographic soundscapes, the aural translation qualities of light and thestudy of contextualized specific quality of movement and dynamics. The light architecture of the surrounding space is crucial part of the movement and sound composition.

The results of this research at the intersection of art, science and economy is presented to the public by means of a practical and discursive experimental arrangement (OPEN LAB), and moderateddiscussion with the participation of numerous guests of various disciplines(OPEN DISCUSSION). Interested persons are invited to experiment within the “multimedia installation” (PUBLIC TRYOUT).

„TWINS … made in China…“ is a collaboration between the performance artist Andrea Salzmann (AT), the painter Anna Hayes (UK) and the two musicians Sebastian Meyer (AT) and Wolfram Leitner (AT).
As Twins Anna Hayes and Andrea Salzmann jumped over the Great Wall, they spat at each other, threw balls, blew soap bubbles and they slowly built an intense friendship. These friends found themselves in a human-unfriendly surrounding in which the market and especially the art market is moving towards a more and more dangerous point.
There are a few who have a lot of wealth and live a truly epicurean lifestyle but their money only floats in direction of Acrylic painting, so the only survival strategy for the Twins is to eat or be eaten up. The Twins are moving in between the times of yesterday and tomorrow and it is rather uncertain if they provoke Utopia or Dystopia. But what is for certain is that they are trying to change present conditions and this they are doing with the support of the music by Sebastian Meyer and Wolfram Leitner.

FUNCTION MAN is a collaboration between dance artists Claire Lefèvre and Matan Levkowich. The creative startingpoint of this solo was the desire to explore the theme of male gender in relationship to Matan’s personal history. We focused particularly on the militarization of young boys’ bodies and minds, which Matan has experienced first hand during his military service in Israel. We were strongly inspired by the toy ‘Action Man’ and how it portrays a typical image of manhood in popular culture. We also referenced Hollywood action movies and questioned the way they perpetuate the glorification of the male hero.

We decided to create FUNCTION MAN and to propose that when we focus on function rather than action, on inherent potential rather than goal achievement, we can debunk some clichés about male gender and possibly offer space to look at the human body in movement from a genderless perspective.

I’m Function Man
I’m a social stripper
I take out layers of expectations.
I’m not a blank canvas.
I’m a sophisticated brush.
I have a strictly defined amount of time to bleed.
This is not Sparta.
Tonight, we dine at home.
Function is my middle name.

Urbanite is the new proposition of Trigger Track Collective, which derives from the interest on the sensual and social practices of clubbing. Clubbing is part of collective urban movement patterns, such as demonstrations, crowds gathering and moving in city space and others.

The aim is not to reproduce a party on stage, but to research on present aspects such as social communities, gender roles, sound and music, sensual approaches etc.

Clubbing is a rather young massive urban ritual, unique in its elements of gathering of people in public spaces, where collective consciousness is formed in a new way, through participatory processes, which challenge current urban neoliberal conditions of production, time, leisure and physicality.

Movements in public space – how small must they be in order not to be recognised as performance? To answer this question, eleven choreographers have been invited to test their movement sequences at a place usually not linked to the term “performance”: a tram-stop shelter in front of the Vienna National Opera.

Each performance was documented with video and translated into a live-performance by Iris Julian. In this way there comes a special visibility into play through which the perception in art spaces (black box of theaters and white cubes of galeries) in difference to public spaces is researched.

CROSSBREEDS 2014 is in search of time. Neoliberal politics has destroyed all forms of time standing in the way of the logic of efficiency and capital. Contemporary man faces the challenge of managing the number of possible situations and their varying time shapes. In order to do this, he continuously moves between internalised rhythms and routines, and the flexible and reflexive creation of individual time structures.
We’re addressing contemporaries and contemporary witnesses who guide or accompany us on historical paths. We attempt time jumps into the future and let ourselves be abducted into fictions of the present. We investigate the city’s body, we embody time. Together with time workers we surrender to sweet idleness and let the continuous bustle of everyday life come to a standstill.
Our stories are mixed with history. We keep claiming our place and at sunrise and sundown visit strange animals in Vienna’s first urban national park. Walking, we meet other cities and times, focussing the unnoticed, and in the walk-in archive we blend Yesterday with Today. We unfold to become an urban stage, let the flow change direction and appropriate Revolution 1934 playfully. Blind between glances, we are ready for the zombie’s slow pace, holding our breath for 5 minutes. Ceaselessly we caress the cheek and dissolve in whiteness or listen to the timeless transformation.

WELCOME TO THE TIME COLLAGE!

In an overlay of differing time concepts, CROSSBREEDS 14 spans and materialises between different spaces, times of the day, and rhythms during one to three weeks of field research (depending on project) and a consolidation from June 2 to 8, 2014 between 4 Hubs: the new Im_flieger Homebase – the former Stollwerck chocolate factory in Vienna’s 12th district, the legendary Café Industrie, a series of exhibitions at Myplace Selfstorage, and the public space in the vicinity of the interface of Kulturzeile / Wienzeile and Gürtel (12th and 5th districts).

27 projects of around 60 local and international artists and theoreticians offer insights into the multiplicity of artistic and theoretic viewpoints and formats – in varying timeframes and durations – from the fields of dance/performance, installation, (short) film, video, lecture, music, urban intervention and city walk.

Visitors and passers-by are invited to experience a dense programme between the 4 Hubs – the different but overlapping time concepts of places of transit, history, work, living, and leisure – to wander, be surprised, refresh historical traces, stop time together, and also perceive subtle shifts of the temporal and social structures of their environment.

CROSSBREEDS 14 focuses on public space. The presence of contemporary art in our local social environment, the connection of art and everyday life is a concern of ours.

CROSSBREEDS – Platform for artistic positions “in between” since 2007 has biennially supported the research, production, and publication of trans-disciplinary artistic projects, networking of artists in boundary transcending art production, as well as theoretical and artistic exchange about specific questions on transmedial positions regarding art, the body, and politics.
