Esa – workshop plurimedia. OSP.

5/3 – 16/3 2018 Workshop plurimedia
La performance en ligne comme outil de dévoilement ? ESA La Réunion.
Aujourd’hui le corps humain est pénétré par les nouvelles technologies ; il est augmenté, prolongé, amélioré et surveillé par des applications. Le corps est contraint, maltraité, contrôlé et souvent oublié. Le corps qui libère, qui rattache le virtuel au réel et en sens inverse, qui fait médiation, qui est entre. Le corps qui n’est plus jamais seul, mais n’a pas appris à être avec, ce corps lié est le champ de nos recherches.

Training Entanglement with whom?

With amazing artists and machines, cables and you.

With Igor Stromajer, the pseudo-artist, who inspired me when in 2001 he started his famous Ballettikka Internettikka online performance series. We met in 2006, when he came to Montpellier to perform an Oppera Internettikka with me and a mezzo-soprano in the Opéra National de Montpellier Languedoc Roussillon. Over time we continued to collaborate actively in projects as The Big Kiss, Angry Women, HuisClos/No Exit and Beyond (spectacle) among others.

With Antye Greie (also known as AGF), a renowned composer, music producer, sound artist & curator, poet, feminist and activist, that I respect deeply. I performed 13 short performative conversational meetings online with her. We talked about html, wind, pixels, law, mothers, key frame, snow, philosophies, fruits, thinking and islands, humans and words, nuts, recording quality, law, shopping, wind, patriotism, love, ocean space, sound rate, communism, dancing, languages and salad, family and future. She also was a very active participant in the Angry Women project. We never met for real.

With Soyung Lee from South Korea who I never met for real neither, and with whom I never performed before. In 2016 I discovered her enchanting work Displaced when researching language practices and art. I tried to write about this hybrid performance and asked her some questions that are published here. Now she participates. Yes!

With Huong Ngô, an American artist, who I first met when I was in New York in 2010 for a Rhizome event and The Big Kiss performance with Mark River in OTO. Accidentally we met again some years later in Paris at an opening. We share an interest in the entanglement of language, identity and power relations and I admire the way she connects personal and political histories using a conceptual, interdisciplinary, and often collaborative approach. See for instance The Voice is an Archive or The Silent Period. Now we collaborate for the first time. Yes!

With Daniel Pinheiro, a Portugese video artist interested in telematics performance, who I met last summer in Porto where he participated in my ELO keynote performance Ours Lingages as singer, dancer and computer operator.  We had been collaborating before in the Distant Feeling(s), a tele-shared experience project (with also Lisa Parra), after I once participated in their LAND project. I especially appreciate the always very interesting observations and analyses he writes down. We will continue collaborating for sure.

With Helen Varley Jamieson, who coined the word cyberformance. I share a project called unaussprechbarlich and a book called Cyposium – the book with her. We had numerous online encounters in different online venues as for instance the Upstage platform, that she co-initiated. Helen is a feminist and a very fierce defender of the use of open-source software.

Many thanks to Randall Packer the symposium chair who made this possible!

Entanglements and glitches.

Disentangling the Entanglements is an article by Randall Packer, Associate Professor of Networked Art at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), School of Art, Design and Media in Singapore, about my upcoming performance with  Antye Greie, Helen Varley Jamieson, Soyung Lee, Hương Ngô, Daniel Pinheiro and Igor Stromajer on the first day of the symposium The Art of the Networked Practice Online Symposium 29-31 March 2018, that he organises.

negotiate ideas together in order to achieve a result that’s not just one person’s problem, one person’s effort, but it’s the effort of a group of people solving a problem collectively.

Please visit the Symposium Website for more information and to register online.

On the 29th of March, Randall Packer will open the symposium and introduce the theme of the day: Being & Connectedness in Telematic Spaces. Then there is a keynote by Maria Chatzichristodoulou, who is associate professor in Performance and New Media at the London South Bank University. We follow with our performance called Online En-semble – Entanglement Training. And at the end there will be a discussion between all the participants and the online and on-site public.

On March 30, with the theme Networking the Real and the Fictional, Steve Dixon, President of LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore will do an introduction and Blast Theory Co-founder Matt Adams will do a keynote. At the end there will again be a roundtable.

On Saturday March 31, centered around igaies (intimate glitches across internet errors), Jon Cates, Associate Professor Film, Video, and New Media, School of the Art Institute of Chicago will present an introduction, and will direct and perform a live networked performance with Roberto Sifuentes (US), Arcángel Constantini (MX), Shawné Michaelain Holloway (US), 愛真 Janet Lin (US) & Paula Pinho Martins Nacif (UK) (XXXtraPrincess).

Frauen Theater Festival


Freitag 10.11.2017

16 Uhr        Performance: UNAUSSPRECHBARLICH – Annie Abrahams, (NL/FR) & Helen Varley Jamieson (NZ/GE).

4:30 pm      Forum: Women in movement; the challenge of integration: Body, language and immigration.

Antagon Halle, Orberstrasse 57, Frankfurt am Main.

Ones body and language also create ones identity. The role of the women differs from country to country and region to region. In the present moment of immigration, this silently accepted role suddenly is questioned. How does the concept of the woman change within different countries? How can these women, who are moving away from their homeland, react to this question? How do we, as women, move within the cosmopolitical world? To get to know another culture creates challenges, that we can only face individually.

The performance of the artists Abrahams and Jamieson deals with exactly this experience to live in between different cultures and in other countries.
Invited for a conversation: Annie Abrahams (biologist, net-artist and pioneer of thenetworking performance-art from Netherlands), Helen Varley Jamieson (writer, theatre-maker, digital artist from New Zealand and member of the board of Magdalena Project), Violeta Luna (performative artist and activist from Mexico, living in San Francisco), Ute Bansemir and Ewgenija Weiß (director of „theaterperipherie“).
