STAGING A STATE

Udviklingen af arbejdet Staging a State kredser om afkolonisering, om statecraft, om identiteters udfoldelse i tid og rum, om performativitet og perspektiv. Det handler mindre om spørgsmålet om hvad der siges og tænkes, men om hvilket perspektiv og magtstilling der siges og tænkes fra. Den afklarende, blurende, blændende afkoloniserings proces af at finde og skifte perspektiv spejler sig i det sceniske univers vi arbejder med. Staging a State ønsker at adresserer afkoloniseringens fælles trauma gennem iscenesættelse af personlige oplevelser og historier, der er tæt forbundet med konceptet.

The development of the work Staging a State revolves around concepts of decolonisation, statecraft, the unfolding of identity in time and space, performativity and perspective. It is less about what is being said and thought of, as of which perspective and power position it is being said and thought from. The clearing, blurring and blinding decolonial process of finding and changing perspectives is mirrored in the stage universe we work with. Staging a State wishes to address the unifying trauma of decolonisation through staging of personal and individual experiences and stories, connected to the concept.

WORKSHOP
VOICE PULSING / CIRCLE SONGS

Alessio Castellacci

These sessions will open a space to re-connect with the pleasure of creating music with our breath, voice, mouth, body. We start with hands-on somatic work to bring our attention to the sensation arising from the mouth cavity, the waves of breath, the impulses to move, and the musical imagination that comes with them.
Once we are aware of these fine levels of the body/voice connection, we tune our listening to the complex rhythms that are present in our speech, breath, movement, and learn how to harness these micropulsations to create improvised percussive vocal music. In the last part of the session I will open few Circle Songs, which are improvised choral songs based on repetition of simple vocal loops and collectiverhythmical entrainment.
Alessio Castellacci is a performer, teacher and sound composer based in Berlin. After studying developmental Psychology and Choreography , he has been drawn to explore the expressive possibilities of the human voice, and has since developed the Synesthetic Voice, a pedagogical approach for voice & movement improvisation. He is the organiser of The World is Sound, intensive program for voice embodiement in Berlin, and of the dance program ROAR Berlin.

THE LAUGHING GAME er en koreografisk undersøgelse af latter, der udfolder dens fysiske og sociale mangfoldighed i tæt relation med publikum. Værket bevæger sig i krydsfeltet mellem dans, installation og koncert, hvor forestillingen udfolder latteren som social kommunikation, kropslig tilstand, klukkende lyd og sprudlende fornemmelse.
THE LAUGHING GAME udfolder en palette af følelserne som latteren kan være udtryk for, dens smitsomme kraft og dens befriende virkning. I kontrast til den gængse opfattelse af latter, som udelukkende værende sjov, bliver latteren her portrætteret som en både morsom og seriøs leg.

I THE LAUGHING GAME træder publikum ind i et eksistentiel og ikke altid rationelt rum, som portrætterer en menneskelig tilstand, der svinger mellem det vilde og det absurde, det sjove og det alvorlige. Værket adskiller ikke kun latter og humor, det adskiller også formen og lyden af latter fra intentionen og dens sociale kontekst. Ved at fremstille latter på forskellige måder bliver den til noget ukendt, noget fremmed. Værket tilbyder nye perspektiver samt større bevidsthed omkring denne velkendte form af sociale kommunikation.

THE LAUGHING GAME er en hyldest til latter – en fejring af dens funktioner & underfundigheder.

THE LAUGHING GAME is a choreographic exploration of laughter, which unfolds laughing as social communication, bodily state, stirring sound and sparkling sensation. Exposing the range of emotions present within laughter, its contagious force and foremost its liberating effect. Breaking with the common sense of looking at laughter as only being funny, laughing will be portrayed as a playful but also serious game. 

This work oscillates between a dance, an installation and a concert.

In THE LAUGHING GAME the audience will enter an existential, not always rational portray of a human condition, that fluctuates between the wild and the absurd, the funny and the serious. The work doesn’t only tell apart laughter and humor, it also separates the form and the sound of laughter from the intention and social context laughter has in everyday life. By different ways of portraying laughter, it becomes alien, something foreign – offering the distance necessary for reflection. Offering new perspectives and enhancing a greater awareness in relation to this common social behaviour.

THE LAUGHING GAME is a tribute to laughter – a celebration of its functions & particularities.

JUST OK – premiere

Just ok er den anden forestilling i en trilogi som adresser hvordan dans kan huse et rum for tab. Trilogien behandler tomhed relateret til sorg, og hvordan noget kan være så smertefuldt tilstede og på samme tid så fuldkomment bort. Just ok er formet af zombiemateriale i den tøvende og liminale zone mellem at leve og dø. Just ok arbejder med zombier som miljømæssige og politiske figurer, der hjælper os med at reflektere over, hvordan levende-dødt materiale vedrører de dystre udsigter verden står overfor. Performancen udspiller en form for rædsel som hverken er spektakulær eller øjeblikkelig, men foreslår en stemning af langsom spænding og gradvis rædsel – der skabes en subtilt skræmmende atmosfære; noget ildevarslende, formløst og obskurt.

Just ok is the second performance in a trilogy addressing how dance can hold a space for loss. The trilogy attends to notions of emptiness referring to grief, and how something can be so achingly present and at the same time so utterly gone. Just ok is a performance shaped by zombie material in the hesitant and liminal zone of living and dying. Just ok thinks of zombies as ecological and political figures that may help us to think how such living-dead material relates to the grim prospects of the world. The performance engages in a kind of horror that is neither spectacular nor immediate but suggests a mood of mellow suspense and gradual horror – creating an eerie atmosphere; something ominous, formless and obscure.

THE LAUGHING ROOM – Instllation

The Laughing Room is a video installation that takes the spectator on a meditative journey through the captivating world of laughter. An invitation to dive into a condensed bodily experience of awareness and relief.

On three screens, laughter will be gently dissected – decomposed into its different qualities. Looking at laughter as a nature force, and not as a tool of communication, allows zooming in on the functions of laughter on the laughing body.

Laughter is filled with beauty, ambiguity and power when taking a closer and more detailed look. The installation allows the unseen details to get visible.
