“Improvisation for Bicycle, Guitar, Radio and Analogue Synthesizer”

Improvisation for Bicycle, Guitar, Radio and Analogue Synthesizer is an electroacoustic improvisation duet. A bicycle is standing upside down. A guitarist and a synthesizer player are standing around the bicycle (the bicycle has been borrowed from a local bicycle owner). The speed of the bicycle wheels is connected to the sounds the two musicians make. The speed of the wheels can constantly be heard in the music – it makes the rhythm very dynamic, since it’s speed is never constant. Little piezo microphones on the bicycle enable the musicians to explore the percussive qualities of the bicycle as well. The involvement of another nostalgic object opens up the improvisation for input from the outside world: radio. On-the-fly samples are being taken from local radio stations as material for the performance – in order to take on a playful approach towards things that happen in this or that very moment. www.goodcopnaughtycop.wordpress.com

Thomas Albrecht and Rae Goodwin “Spilled” (performance art, USA, 20’)

Thomas Albrecht works include wall drawings that record passages of time through accumulations of mark; paintings that negotiate the remnants of human agency without picturing actual figures; and performances on city sidewalks that explore ritual and language in public spaces. Albrecht is an assistant professor of art at the State University of New York at New Paltz.  He served as the Menil Scholar at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and was selected as a Faculty Fellow for the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities. Albrecht received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, a Master of Arts in Religion at Yale, and his MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle. www.thomasalbrecht.com

Goodwin currently serves as Director of Art Foundations at the University of Kentucky. www.raegoodwin.com

“Spilled”

There is poetry in the way people communicate; how interpretations of language—verbal and non-verbal—generate meaning, or lack thereof. Intention is interpreted and our own inner dialog rests like stones on our tongues. The residue of language is held between us as it falls, slips, or is thrown.

Rae enters the space first, symbolically wearing white. She pours cream from pitchers into two stacked bowls making sure there is no spillage. With a downward gaze, Rae stands and pours, recalling Vermeer’s painting “The Milkmaid.” Rae sits and waits for her partner for minutes. Thomas enters the space and sits down, harshly, after much stomping. With hands on the dark wood table, the two performers stare at one another and seem to say nothing—and everything—across the distance. Separated by bowls that have been filled carefully to the brim with heavy cream, they begin the dance of conversation. Using imagery from Mark Strand’s poem “To Begin,” their mouths are filled with dark grey stones. They take turns removing one stone at a time at two-minute intervals. The rocks, or intentions, are dropped or slid into the cream. As the stones disappear from sight below the surface, the cream overflows onto the table, and, because of a slight pitch in the surface of the table, moves slowly along the table and then spills onto the floor below. The entire slippage of language—from stone, to cream, to table, to floor—functioning metaphorically as a slow, creeping waterfall.

Yu-Jun Ye “The Sound of the Kitchen” (performance art/multimedia, Taiwan, 20’)

Yu-Jun Ye works at the art space “instant 42” in Luzhou , New Taipei City (Taiwan).  Ye is managing and renovating the space as a form in creation to serve as a gallery, studio, and residency.  She has shown her work internationally including the Nippon International Performance Art Festival (NIPAF) and has earned art degrees from the Ecole Nationale Supérieur d’Arts de Paris-Cergy and the Sorbonne University. www.instant42.net

“The Sound of the Kitchen”
This performance was conceived by Ye Yu-Jun and Cheng Yi-Ping (Betty Apple) at the invitation of the Lacking Sound Festival (Feminine Sound II – Spring). It is an improvisation of body, sound and poetry, performed by these two female artists. The sounded texts are taken from fragments of everyday life, and are thus naturally staggered. Both artists select objects related to their own personal experience, and by physically interacting with them, they record and produce a live sound performance. Within this interflow of sound, they create a montage of body and mind. In this incarnation, Ye Yu-Jun will repeat the performance, making new interactions, sounds and situations, based on the premise established at the Lacking Sound Festival (Feminine Sound II – Spring).

Geneviève Favre Petroff “Loukoum” (dance/light, Switzerland, 20’)

Geneviève Favre Petroff is a singer and visual artist from Switzerland. Known for her visual performances, which include music and technology, she invites her audience to follow her in her stories, in her dances, and to participate in social debates. www.genevievefavre.com

“Loukoum”

This ‘‘rose-flavored’’ performance evokes the beauty and wealth of the Middle-Eastern culture. I speak about encounters, conviviality and mutual enrichment. After a tempestuous Arab Spring, where people fought for freedom of expression and individual rights, and faced with growing anti-Islamic sentiments in our region, I have chosen to question the contemporary customs in the East as well as in the West. I wear a mini-dress cut in the 1960s style, referencing sexual freedom, women’s lib movement and the conquest of the space. I use a visual design reflecting the 1980s, such as disco, video games, and entertainment. I dance and address the public at the same time, singing with a rhythmical musical accompaniment inspired by Egyptian pop music of the 1990s. My dress consists of 124 lokum cubes (Turkish delight) of increasing size, which light up and draw motives in movement, synchronized with the music.

Abel Azcona “Droite” (performance art, Spain, 30’)

Spanish Visual Artist specializing in performance art, interventions, video art and photography. Azcona has shown his work in Spain, France, England, Germany, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, U.S.A, Philippines and Japan. www.abel-azcona.com

Christian Patracchini “Means Without an End” (performance art, UK/Italy, undetermined length)

Christian Patracchini’s performances have been featured in exhibitions and festivals both in the UK and abroad, amongst which BIOS Festival in Athens 2009, the PAE Festival in Rotterdam 2010 and the Colloquium Festival 2011 at Central School of Speech and Drama.

Video of “Certain Duties”


“Means Without an End”
“…the topography created in a crumple and torn handkerchief in the depth of a pocket, where metric linear, time and space are collapsed into an unexpected topography of proximities and distances, where entirely different connections are made and events pulled into surprising intimacies and astonishing distances…” Michel Serres
Do we keep a safe distance between ourselves and our reality, ourselves and our experiences? Do we seek to put a frame around feelings so that they are contained and cannot leak beyond the boundaries we allow them? ‘Means Without an End’ is an interactive one to one performance where a single member of the audience and the performer meet in a space and with a card game and the unique physicality of body contact, aims at discovering an infra sensual language that our reciprocal touch creates. The aim is to experience vulnerability for both the performer and the audience, as a way of exploring how the social relationship might adjust (or not) to accommodate this sense of energies and power exchanges. The emphasis on touch is a play on ambiguity, aimed to soften the perceptions of our boundaries and make us more aware of our own fragility and strength. The act of touching someone, like in a Tango presupposes a certain demand, a decision, an instance of response-ability.
