Info


What do sea anemones and sports stadiums sound like or how about New York, Bangkok or Bangalore? Can a work of art be both a representation and an intervention at one and the same time in a specific space? What is a performance like that follows its performers’ heartbeats? These are just some of the questions raised by students from the Walt Disney-founded and now world famous California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) who are presenting their work and representing their school for the first time in Europe at a unique 4 day interdisciplinary festival. PACT Zollverein is throwing open all its doors to their creativity and putting every available space at their disposal: Sculptures, sound and video installations, films and photographs will be exhibited in the studios, corridors, showers, foyer and terrace while selected programmes of film, dance, music and performance will be shown on stage.

MUSIC & PERFORMANCE PROGRAMME

FRI 30.09.11 20 h   

Milen Kirov ›“2“‹

›“2“‹ is a realization of Milen Kirov's idea of an integrated art, one that stems from the same seed and created through a collaborative process. Specially arranged and re-imagined for PACT Zollverein, this version employs the sounds of an electric piano together with prerecorded and live-triggered sounds and utilizes animation and film elements created by Kerstin Hovland and Emilie Sabath.



CHIARA GIOVANDO, KRISTIN Þóra HARALDSDóTTIR, STEPHANIE SMITH ›DARK FARE Trio‹

The DARK FARE experimental performance trio utilizes live interactive processing with video and sound.  Featuring violin, viola, electronics and voice, their music merges extended technique on strings and vocals with traditional folk ballads, classical training and “dark noise.”



ARCHIE CAREY, KERSTIN HOVLAND, HEATHER LOCKIE, NATALIE METZGER, KALEAN UNG ›LUMINIS SPHAERA‹

Performance group Luminis Sphaera explores underlying connections among disparate artistic disciplines and environmental systems. Combining elements of music, dance, poetry, architecture, and moving image, their performance score is inspired by the converted remnants of the Ruhr region’s industrial era.







FRI 30.09.11

10 h        TALK WITH Jalal Toufic ›Don’t Go to Hell for the Sake of Finishing Watching the Film‹

SAT 01.10.11

10 h        TALK WITH IRIT ROGOFF ›PUBLIC‹



What is the significance of words such as work, industry, energy, potentiality, participation, contribution, care and pedagogy, in what appears to be a time of global economic and political crisis, in which education, and aesthetic education in particular, are under increasing pressure? Speakers Jalal Toufic and Irit Rogoff seriously but playfully explore the pasts, presents, and futures of the relations between doing and thinking.







DANCE PROGRAMME

SAT 01.10.11 19 h   

RACHEL BOYAJIN, CAMERON EVANS, PRINCESS MECCA ROMERO, ANDREW WOJTAL, JORDAN SAENZ

›DERIVATIONS‹

The evening length program ›Derivations‹ is an exploration of human vulnerability and the nuances of touch. Elegant athleticism, theatrical introspection, and idiosyncratic distinctions of the human body investigate the potential of corporeal articulation. Innovative collaborations come together to expose unconventional beauty creating an inimitable aesthetic.





FILM SCREENINGS

CalArts’ School of Film/Video host two evenings of film followed by discussions with the programme curators and student filmmakers. The first screening, curated by Maureen Selwood, showcases work produced in the Experimental and Character Animation programs and the second, co-curated by Steve Anker, Dean of the School of Film/Video and Chiara Giovando, work produced in the Film Directing and Film/Video programs.

The Film/Video screening provides a glimpse of the originality and rigor of the filmmakers from CalArts. The program includes experimental narrative, new forms of documentary and abstract explorations with light and image. The works range from strange and beautiful to challenging and comical. They represent a diversity of approach and the exploratory spirit of Film/Video. The work reflects a wide range of technical approaches including optical-printing, hand processing and digital effects, as well as engagement with the history and language of conceptual film making.
