Sutra u Magacinu! Koreografije Eszter Salamon (H/D) i Christine De Smedt (B)

 

 

>>>Scroll down for English version<<<



Salamon i De Smedt će izvesti svoj najnoviji koreografski rad Dance #2. Predstava traje oko trideset minuta. Nakon toga, one će prikazati video snimak Dance #1/Driftworks uz komentar u kojem će, kao autorke, ove koreografkinje govoriti o svom postupku, idejama, tehnikama, sve vreme se osvrćući na pojedinosti iz predstave koje publika u tom trenutku vidi na snimku. Prikazivanje s komentarom traje, koliko i sama predstava, oko sat vremena. Nakon takvog “neprestanog komentara” (running commentary), sledi razgovor sa autorkama. Komentari autorki i razgovor sa njima će biti na engleskom jeziku bez prevoda.

DANCE #2
 
Dance #2 je pokušaj širenja potencijalnostî odnosa i opštenja između dva izvođača i publike, koji telesne gestove i reči meša u jedan nov, hibridan jezik.
 
Christine De Smedt i Eszter Salamon predlažu iskustva različitih odnosa između koreografije i jezika. Na taj način one preosmišljavaju komunikaciju, iznova preispitujući napetost između smisla i značenja. Duet je zamišljen u dva dela: slušanje i “izušćivanje” (“mouthing”), reči i gestove. Igre koje ove dve žene igraju, u kojima se poredak između govornih i pisanih jezika često dovodi u pitanje, nagoveštavaju saglasje i nesaglasje. Njihova sadržina osciluje između nasumičnog i mîsli. To bi se moglo uporediti sa izmišljanjem kroz zajedničko učenje nekog novostvorenog jezika, što je, moglo bi se reći, poetski nus-proizvod svakog istovremeno umetničkog i ljubavnog odnosa. U radu Dance #2, posmatrači i izvođači nastanjuju isti horizontalni prostor, pejzažu.

Maja 2011, Salamon je izvela premijeru rada Tales of the Bodiless, muzičke ali ne naučne fantastike, u saradnji sa Bojanom Cvejić, Cedricom Dambrainom i Terreom Thaemlitzem. Njena najnovija solo izvedba, Melodrama, prikazana je juna 2012. na Documentary Forumu 2 u Berlinu.
Salamon je učestvovala u umetničkom projektu 6Month1Location (2008.), zasnovanom na samoorganizaciji i samoobrazovanju pri CCN-u u Monpeljeu. U saradnji s grupom umetnika, Salamon je 2009. bila koselektor i učesnik festivala In-Presentable 09 u Madridu.
 
Umetnički rad Christine De Smedt nalazi se između plesa/izvedbe, koreografije, koordinacije, organizacije i selekcije umetničkih projekata. De Smedt je članica grupe Les Ballets C. de la B. u Gentu, Belgija, a stvara od 1993: La Force fait l'union, fait la force, solo; Escape Velocity (1998.), putujući projekt na Balkanu; kao i veliku, masovnu koreografiju 9x9 (2000.‒2005.). Nekoliko godina je sarađivala s Meg Stuart ‒ Damaged Goods (1995.‒1999.) a poslednjih deset godina  s Mårtenom Spångbergom, Mette Edvardsen, Xavierom Le Royom, Philippom Gehmacherom, Vladimirom Millerom i Janom Ritsemom. Od 2005. do 2008. je učestvovala u projektima sa Eszter Salamon, sa kojom je napravila NvsblDance #1 / Driftworks, kao i grupni projekt Transformers. Nedavno je izvela niz performativnih portreta raznih autora u vidu predstave, pod naslovom Four Choreograhic Portraits („I would leave a signature“, The Son of a Priest, A Woman with a Diamond and Self-reliance). De Smedt je bila selektorka umetničke radionice Summer Intensive. Takođe, učestvuje u projektu Xaviera Le Roya Low Pieces, kao i u novoj koreografiji Mette Ingvartsen,Artificial Nature Project.
 
Dance #1 / Driftworks
 
Dance #1 / Driftworks je nastavak istraživanja tehnologije telesnih izraza, koje je Eszter Salamon započela u radu Nvbsl (2006.), zasnovanom na posebnim telesnim praksama i procesima posmatranja, mašte, osećaja i pamćenja raznih „telesnih sistema“. U radu Dance #1 / Driftworks, De Smedt i Salamon konstruišu koreografije „nestalnih tela“, nudeći iskustvo putovanja između pažnje i namere izvođačâ kao i posmatračâ. Izrazi nastaju unutarnjim fizičkim kompozicionim radom, pre nego predstavljanjem likova i njihovih duševnih stanja.

DANCE #2
 
Dance #2 is an attempt to extend potentialities of relation and communication between two performers and an audience mixing bodily gestures and words in a new hybrid language.
De Smedt and Salamon propose to experience different relationships between choreography and language as they renegotiate communication while creating and renewing the tension between sense and meaning. The duet is conceived in two parts: listening & mouthing, words & gestures. The games the two women play, where the hierarchy between oral and written languages is often challenged, imply consensus and dissensus. Their content oscillates between arbitrariness and thought. It could be compared with inventing by learning a language together, which is the poetic by-product of any artistic and love relationship at the same time. In Dance #2, the spectators co-habit the same space as the performers, distributing their bodies in a horizontal landscape.

Her latest solo performance,Melodrama, was presented in June 2012, at the Berlin Documentary Forum 2.
Salamon participated in 6Month1Location (2008), an artistic research project based on self-organisation and self-education at the CCN, Montpellier. In 2009, together with the same group of artists, she co-curated and took part in the festival In-Presentable 09 (Madrid).
 
The artistic work of Christine De Smedt is situated between dancing/performing, choreographing, coordinating, organising, and curating artistic projects. A member of the company Les Ballets C. de la B. (Gent, Belgium), she has produced her own work since 1993, a solo, La Force fait l’union, fait la force; a travelling project in the Balkans, Escape Velocity (1998), and a large scale mass choreography, 9x9 (2000‒2005). For several years she collaborated with Meg Stuart ‒ Damaged Goods (1995‒1999) and for the last ten years she has had various artistic collaborations with Mårten Spångberg, Mette Edvardsen, Xavier Le Roy, Philipp Gehmacher, Vladimir Miller, and Jan Ritsema. Between 2005 and 2008 she was engaged in projects with Eszter Salamon, with whom she created NvsblDance #1 / Driftworks, and the group project Transformers. Recently she has premiered a series of performance portraits of different artists, titled Four Choreographic Portraits (“I would leave a signature”, The Son of a Priest, A Woman with a Diamond and Self-reliance). De Smedt was the curator of the artist residency project Summer Intensive. She is also performing in Le Roy’s Low Pieces and an upcoming choreography by Mette Ingvartsen, Artificial Nature Project.
 
Dance #1 / Driftworks

Dance #1 / Driftworks
 is a continuation of the research Eszter Salamon began in Nvsbl (created in 2006) in the technology of body expressions, based on specific body practices and processes of observation, imagination, sensation, and memory of various “body-systems”. In Dance #1 / Driftworks, De Smedt and Salamon construct choreographies of “volatile bodies”, proposing to experience a journey between attention and intention of performers and spectators alike. The expressions result from the internal physical compositional work more than from representing characters and psychological states in their image.
