PERFORMING (NON) PUBLIC SPACE // JASMINA AL-QAISI, ROEL HEREMANS, MÁRIA JÚDOVÁ
When bodies no longer experience the scene as a physical situation, we make room for imaginary choreography. We write the movement using sound, we are in action through our voices, the thought becomes visual language, the word becomes our choreographic platform.
𝙋𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙜 (𝙣𝙤𝙣) 𝙥𝙪𝙗𝙡𝙞𝙘 𝙨𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙚 suggests the approach of a new paradigm of choreographic art, involving professionals in the field of contemporary dance in a creative conversation with the public and with artists working with sound, text and technology, in a process of rediscovering the potential of performing arts.
On November 10 from 15:00, on the account www.facebook.com/Asociatia4Culture, a dialogue with artists Roel Heremans (Belgium), Jasmina Al-Qaisi (Romania / Germany) and Mária Júdová (Slovakia), has taken place, in which there had been presented their current personal practices, in relation to the space and environments of public expression. The dialogue was moderated by 𝘼𝙣𝙙𝙧𝙚𝙚𝙖 𝘾𝙖̆𝙥𝙞𝙩𝙖̆𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙘𝙪, artistic director of 4Culture Association and initiator of the project.
𝙍𝙤𝙚𝙡 𝙃𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙢𝙖𝙣𝙨 is a conceptual artist working with sound & technology. In most of his works he composes fragments of audio that trigger the imagination of visitors in order to create immersive group experiences. As a result, the visitors simultaneously become actors, witnesses, performers and reenactors of mental and physical processes of thought and movement, where collective performances encounter individual reactions and vice versa. By activating people in this way, Heremans generates a simulation of the contemporary world, one in which every individual is part of their own self-mirroring bubble, one in which the visitor, with their experience, remains the artist’s only metaphorical canvas. https://roelheremans.com
