Annie Abrahams, Maja Delak, Irena Pivka: Encounter

Wednesday, April 23 from 5 pm till 10 pm
MSUM, Metelkova, 1000 Ljubljana
An intimate performance for a limited number of observers.*
(public preparation no.2 for an exhibition)

Annie (Dutch artist and biologist living in France) and Maja (Slovenian dancer and choreographer), who only saw one another twice and only shortly, will meet and engage in a 5 hour long performance, where they can’t use English to communicate. Irena (artist, architect and scenographer) will be present and record the encounter by any means she thinks appropriate. All three they will produce the material for a collective art piece to be shown in Aksioma in October.

What happens when two people with a desire to meet the other have the chance (and the obligation) to stay together for 5 hours? How will they manage the shared responsibility for a performance? How will they circumvent the fact they can’t speak English to communicate? What will be the influence of the obligation to produce material for a future exhibition piece? Will their different professional backgrounds bring forward a special aesthetic?

production: CONA,

partners: MG+MSUM, JSKD, French Institute Ljubljana
Cona program is supported by Municipality of Ljubljana, Culture department

Kaj misliš s tem
? / What do you mean?
Public preparation no.1 for an exhibition (Aksioma Oct. 2014)
Thursday, April 17th, 7.30pm,
Kult3000, Metelkova, Ljubljana

A performance and discussion with people who all had to learn a new language because they went living in a country who’s language they didn’t speak.

Performance initiator and preparation : Annie Abrahams. Invited participants : Martina Rusham (dancer and author, Austrian), Jana Wilcoxen (translator, project development, American), Chantal van Mourik (communicator, coordinator, Dutch). Discussion afterwards.

The performance (facilitated by CONA) will last 30 min.
We will not speak directly to one-another, we will type on a computer in our mother-tongue, use google to translate our text in Slovenian and then use text to speech software – TTS by Proteus – to be heard by all in Slovenian.

in the frame of (E)stranger : a 4 weeks residency invited by CONA
partners JSKD, French Institute Ljubljana
