ORBIS TERTIUS

CASA MARZIANO presents ORBIS TERTIUS

Eine choreografierte Klang-Reise durch das Aufbau Haus am Moritzplatz.
A choreographic sound walk through the Aufbau Haus building on Moritzplatz.

ORBIS TERTIUS –  ist eine „Kunst der Anordnung“ einer Konspiration von Künstlern unter Leitung von Matteo Marziano Graziano (Choreograf/Filmemacher) und frei inspiriert durch die Kurzgeschichte: Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius vom argentinischen Schriftsteller Jorge Luis Borges. Du wirst auf eine Reise durch das Aufbau-Haus am Moritzplatz geschickt. Von Nischen im Fundament des Hauses bis hoch über den Wolken betrittst du unterschiedliche Welten, die sich in der besonderen Architektur des Hauses eingenistet haben. Figuren, die aus dem Dunkel treten und in den Rissen der Wände verschwinden. Dort lösen sich die Regeln von Logik und Geometrie auf. Das Fluide wird scharfgestellt. Tanz trifft Baukunst, Töne werden Konstruktion. Deine Persönlichkeit ist kein Zustand, sondern Handeln.

In seinen etwas vertrackten Fiktionen, Über die Strenge der Wissenschaft schildert Jorge Luis Borges die kartographische Vermessung eines Gebietes, die, auf der Suche nach größtmöglicher Genauigkeit, zu immer größeren Karten führt, welche auch die kleinsten Details enthalten sollten. Dennoch bleiben aber auf jeder Karte Lücken, Restzonen des Verfügbaren, in denen die Wirklichkeit gegen ihre völlige Übertragung in die kartierte Fläche verweigert. Vor diesem Fakt gestellt bleibt einen Pfad zu gehen, sich seinen eigenen Pfad/Karte durch das Dickicht der Räumlichkeiten zu zeichnen oder zu bahnen.

BUILT TO BLAST (audio documentation)

bauhaus_lamp_FLIPBOOK_transparent400px

BUILT TO BLAST

is a one-on-one performance-situation. A Rendezvous with a room. For about 15 minutes. An intimate encounter of non-human and human, aiming to blur the distinction between those two. Mind-blowing, nerve-racking, seducing. It is fucking educational. For everyone / everything involved.

BUILT TO BLAST is a nut-cracker, a bottle opener of a performance, an implant designed to unveil the being of a room – casting light on questions that we didn’t care or dare to ask. It’s a hardly noticeable apparatus, a gadget from another spacetime mattering, a prosthesis, a true cyborg, a cybernetic organism detached from the human body. It lends a room a voice, agency to speak, to suffer, to love, to crab, to crave, to share, to be. It is speeding up the slowness of things and slowing down the speed of humans to facilitate a meeting somewhere in between. A slow dance speed-date of one matter being and one human being. It is first-hand experience with the other. Challenging for both sides, BUILT TO BLAST dismantles and enforces expectations that none of us knew we had.

The installation has been performed for about 40 individuals in Berlin in 2015 and is since waiting to be implanted in new exciting spaces.

\ ARDUINO-controlled LED installation
\ 6-channel sound implant

“… (female voice) How do you feel?

– Good.

Great. Uh, I like that little wind. The warm wind from your nose.

(whispers) Yes.

It heats my air. It feels really good to have you inside of me.

Do you know why I like you?

– Yeah.. why?

Cause you are soft and I am hard. I like soft things. Do you?

– Yes, me too.

Do you know when you were born?

– Yes.

When?

– In the 60s.

Wow. Nice times.

– And you?

You know what? I am born in every moment.

And actually, so are you!

Do you mind if I change a little?

– No. Go ahead.

[lights off]

Do you feel closer to me now?

-Yes.

I like darkness. And you?

– Yes. Me too. It’s quiet.

(switching to male voice) Kiss me.

Are you able to kiss me?

Why not?

– I don’t know how.

Try. Come closer.

Yeah.

Very nice.

Try to fill me. Connect with me. Yes.

Yes.

Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Inhale. Exhale. Yeah. It’s so good to be part of you. You have a very strong impact on me.

– Yes, good.

Yeah. Do you think I am innocent?

– Yes, of course.

Actually… I am not. What are you made of?

– Sorry?

(switching to female voice) What are you made of?

(switching to male voice) You know, I think we are both made of the same stuff. I am you, you are me. Stardust. No?

– Are you sure?

No.

– (chuckles)

That’s what I think.

(laughs) Ok.

Let’s celebrate that

(laughs more)

Imagine!

– Yes.

Let me tell you something.

– Ok.

Imagine. Imagine, if you can…”

CHOREOGRAPHY AND PERFORMANCE Liselotte Singer & Marc Philipp Gabriel

Weil wir uns gerne haben.
From dance into combat, we play with triggers of different forms of excitement (intimacy, grace, exaltation, fever, violence) that we get caught in and transmit out. As a movement entity we are in a relationship of constant negotiation on physical and social levels. We touch.
Allora ragazzi, are you ready to see those results ?

SHAVE THAT GUMMI (VIDEO DOCUMENTATION)

shavethatgummi_144p

Video documentation of the first showing and after talk, recorded at Con Cowan theatre, Johannesburg, 20 FEB 2016:

SHAVE THAT GUMMI is an international choreographic research that unleashes between innumerable poles of difference.

How can we breathe under all the highly charged misconceptions that have been cast onto us in past and present times? Coming from two different continents, we are still chewing on the same piece of gum. F*ck. Being labelled before birth, we strive to move away from preconceived identities, longing for situations that are re-negotiated in every moment. Two bodies flying through their extremities, slurping, spitting, slicing, deflecting and avoiding one another – breathing in as two and exhaling as one.

SHAVE THAT GUMMI is a dance performance duet moving between ornamenting and defacing the human body as an object. A precarious duet of counter-colonialization. A dual player game, a pas-de-deux, a dog fight, a futuristic binary. Two opposites migrating into each other’s territories. SHAVE THAT GUMMI is pulling the audience into a game of projections, stripping multiple layers of conformity off the performing body.

SPACE AGENCY

space agency

Voice training for SPACE AGENCY by Fleur Khani

“Space Agency is a choreographic piece for a choir. The performers activate the space around them through text and music. The audience is absorbed in the displacements in the space and the descriptions of houses, rooms, walls, objects, odours, colours, sensations … These spaces of daydreams become lucid through singing, rhythm and continuous spinal movements, until the language starts loosing its meaning and the concrete spaces liquefy again.”… read more

Linhas Imponderáveis

 

Arte de representar na pele a configuração de um espaço interno com todos os seus acidentes.O corpo enquanto hospedeiro do caos, onde habita? O fenómeno da assimilação/apropriação involuntária das acções envolventes e a observação do processo de gestação das mesmas.

Um trabalho da Rita Vilhena e Raquel Mendes em colaboração com Marc P. Gabriel.

Dec 2013 / Galeria Boavista / Lisbon

Linhas

every one everyone

 

Every One Everyone began as a personal process of exploration, a series of studio meetings with people joining me in an experiment: receiving a physical impulse from my body, allowing themselves to be swayed in their perceived craniosacral rhythm. With always more then two people present in each studio encounter, participants were than asked to map their sensation both as observers and performers, leaving traces in varied forms – writing, drawing, speaking, moving etc.

ZELTEN

Zelten

26 + 27 OCT 2013 // with Jenni Ramsperger / HZT Berlin / @ Uferstudios Studio 14

 

Tanz: Simone Detig, Parwanhe Frei, Susanne Mayer und Annegret Schalke
Musikdramaturgie: Marc P. Gabriel
Produktionsassistenz: Paula Führer
Choreografie: Jenni Ramsperger

Zelten bedeutet unterwegs sein und draußen wohnen, seine Heringe in den Boden stechen, sein Lager im Freien aufschlagen und den Standort jederzeit wechseln zu können. Es bedeutet, sich, das Zelt und die eigene Position in die einen umgebende und sich verändernde Natur einzugliedern. Es bedeutet, das Zuhause unter freiem Himmel zu finden, komme was wolle. 

Die Arbeit Zelten ist eine Reise in die Erinnerungen unserer deutschen Kindheit.

Wo stehen wir zwischen den Stimmen unserer Eltern, den Spuren unserer Großeltern und unserer Realität, als die in den 80ern geborene Generation Y? Generation Why.

Welche Relevanz haben die Begriffe Heimat, Zugehörigkeit und Verortung für uns? Was ist es, das bleibt, wenn wir weggehen? Was kommt? Und was kommt mit uns, wenn wir weggehen?

 

Sie sagten, sie wollten Löwen bändigen gehen, als sie aus Germanien loszogen. Nahe am Herzen, in der Tasche ihres ledernen Brustbeutels, trugen die vier Gefährtinnen Bilder ihrer Heimat: den Christbaum mit echten Bienenwachskerzen, die pädagogisch wertvolle Gute-Nacht-Geschichte, den „Schützt den Regenwald“-Sticker, den letzten Kuchenkrümel und Gedanken an die gerechte Aufteilung sämtlicher Leckereien.

In den Ohren Erinnerungen an den Gesangsverein, an das ordentliche Einkehren nach den Sonntagsfahrten mit Oma und Opa, der exotische Beigeschmack der multikulturellen Patchworkfamilie und die richtige Sitzordnung beim Abendbrot.

Und auf dem Gaumen die Pommes rot-weiß aus dem Freibad und die dazu eingeprägte Melodie einer Sommerwerbung.
