Utterings Performance: Supra Semiotics. 30 min.

Utterings Panel: Toward a Supra-Semiotic Telepresent Communication.
May 26th 2021 14h30 Paris time. Zoom link:
Members of our group will collectively discuss what we have pragmatically learned and experienced in our performance research thus far. During the panel we make a writing pad available, where the audience can collectively read and write their thoughts on utterings as a communication form. Utterings will join and continue the discussion on the writing pad in the last part of the panel.

Utterings is a networked performance and research group whose members gather online and, while blindfolded, engage in utterings as communication. We want to create an on the fly “new” language, that forwards attention, trust and feelings, above rationality. Put another way, we seek to develop a shared, experiential, supra-semiotic form of communication based on our ongoing performance history with each other. Michael Bakhtin’s concept of the “utterance event” as a node of intersection between lived, present-tense communication and atemporal, semiotic meaning has informed our research. Over the past year, we have enacted eight performances online “at” festivals “in” Nantes (France), Birmingham (UK), Linz (Austria), and London (UK).

In 2020, many people encountered online performance for the first time.
We asked some of our peers “When was your first online performance?”
BEFORE THE FIRST is a brief glimpse of the diversity of online performance created before 2020.

Video essay – Why is the use of videoconferencing so exhausting? – in JER

Why is the use of videoconferencing so exhausting? An analysis on the demands.

PAS DE VUE D’ENSEMBLE
vous devez scanner l’écran en continu
interruption(s)
impossible de détecter des détails subtils
pas de détail
l’imagination remplace les signes secondaires de la communication et ceux-ci doivent être traités sur leur utilité
nous sommes enclins à vérifier notre propre image tout le temps comme si nous avions besoin d’une assurance continue que la connexion existe toujours
tout le son est mélangé dans un environnement sonore mono,
cela conduit à une compression de l’espace partagé,
nous devons deviner d’où vient le son
distraction(s)
toi, je et moi
une situation triangulaire dans laquelle nous nous sentons et nous regardons nous-mêmes et les autres …
c’est psychologiquement exigeant: notre cerveau doit traiter le soi comme corps et comme image

vous ne voyez les visages de près que lorsque vous êtes bébé dans un berceau ou avec un amoureux au lit
vous ne voyez les visages de près que lorsque vous êtes bébé dans un berceau ou avec un amoureux au lit
il y a du délai
nous ne sommes jamais exactement dans le même temps / espace
Tout cela contribue à un épuisement.
Nous essayons de dépasser les limites des environnements artificiels sans prendre en compte ses spécificités.
Que se passe-t-il si nous supprimons les sens que nous utilisons le plus pour communiquer?
Et si nous fermons les yeux et ne parlons pas.
Qu’est-ce qui reste?

With the 6th edition of the 48-hour showcase extravaganza, Stadtwerkstatt asks questions about the more-or-less situations, the counter-validity zones and the non-zero-sum games of the future. It is all and nothing about rational and irrational approaches in larger contexts, driven by questions of MORE, LESS, and above all of the OTHER.

The Big Kiss reperformed

Happy that my piece The Big Kiss from 2008 will be reperformed by Thomas Geiger in the 4th Festival of Minimal Actions on the 25th of July at 18h.
Kunsthalle Wien, Reumannplatz, July 15–August 2, 2020

Concept: Thomas Geiger
Realisation: Kunsthalle Wien as part of KISS
Curated by: Laura Amann, Anne Faucheret, Aziza Harmel, WHW

As part of KISS, Thomas Geiger will realize a new edition of his Festival of Minimal Actions (previously staged in Brussels, 2014; Paris, 2015 and San José, 2018). In what could be considered a reawakening of performative works, Geiger creates situations that deal with the possibilities and impossibilities of physical interaction, affection, intimacy, and romance in public space during periods of pandemic…

…The festival – the main premise of which is a belief in the independence of performative works from their authors – brings together a concise selection of works by other artists that Geiger will reperform at Reumannplatz. Through the changed social, political, and temporal contexts between their original performance and this one, the works gain additional facets and shed some of their original aspects.
Extracted from the exhibition text by Laura Amann, 2020.

“HUG” in the Nieuwstraat Festival.

My score
HUG:
When walking somewhere in the street
Just stop and stand still
Put your arms around yourself and hug yourself.
When you feel comforted you may continue your walk.

Has been performed with scores from 19 other artists in The Nieuwstraat Festival that took place on June 20, 2020, between sunrise and midnight. The Nieuwstraat is an average street in the center of Dordrecht, the Netherlands.. The performances were performed by volunteers, unannounced and without explanation.

Written reactions from the performers of HUG is all that is archived of this piece.

The Nieuwstraat Festival fits in a series of Unnoticed Art Festivals organised by Frans van Lent.
