STOCKHOLM 13 JUNE 2014 AT 19-23
Performance by Louise Dahl-Lindvall, Lisa Gideonsson/Gustaf Londré and Charlotta Smith.
“We need a new theatre, a theatre without spectatorship. We need a theatre where the optical relation- implied in the word theatron – is subjected to another relation, implied in the word drama. Drama means action. The theatre is a place where an action is actually performed by living bodies in front of living bodies.”
Jacques Rancière, The Emancipated Spectators, 2010
What happens when theatre meets performance? Bar Drama attempts to investigate the relationships between theatre and performance, in particular how the use of language typical of the theatre relate to the forms of visual arts, and how artists deal with these questions.
Bar Drama transforms the bar into a theatre foyer where the audience wait for something to happen and in which the lines between fiction and reality, theatre and performance are blurred. In this frame and its beautiful view on Djurgården, three artists – Louise Dahl-Lindvall, GIDEONSSON/LONDRÉ, Charlotta Smith – will present site-specific works using tools and techniques taken from theatre, mixing them with their own practices. The artists have different approaches but they are linked together through an interest in exploring the possibilities of experimental theatre.
Every pièce will focus different aspects of the theatrical in performance, such as the body, the script, and the actor. GIDEONSSON/LONDRÉ pursue a physical action through a wind machine and a manuscript, Louise Dahl-Lindvall narrates a story and includes the public in a “one-by-one” performance and Charlotta Smith plays with two actresses and the audience using different texts and poems.
Bar Drama is Flavia Badioli’s is final project at CuratorLab/Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Flavia Badioli (born in Italy, 1986) lives and works in Rome.
STOCKHOLM 25 APRIL 2014 AT 17–01 M&M: Normalcy Bar
Everything goes at the Normalcy Bar! We welcome you to take part in the Normalcy club night at Moderna Museet with normal music, normal interventions and normal interruptions of the symbolic order. Expect the unexpected at Normalcy Bar: a friendly take-over of the sea, the skies and the electromagnetic spectrum, ending with a M good bye, a M thank you, a M welcome and a M good luck!
Performances and interventions by, among others: Klas Eriksson, Cecilie Hundevad Meng and Fredrik Fermelin, Mare Liberum (Jens Evaldsson, Lisa Gideonsson, Marja Knape and Gustaf Londré), Joanna Nordin, Isabel Löfgren and Per Hüttner, Weld.
I, I, I (Aj, Aj, Aj) by Weld:
“I, I, I or pronounced in Swedish Aj, Aj, Aj is a durational, participatory, trance, speculative sound installation for many voices. In the age of self-fulfillment, me myself and I, the hunt for subjectivity. In the wish for a larger understanding. In the letting go of oneself for the collective mind. In the schizophrenia of these simultaneously unrestful minds.”
Ö—An Archipelago Odyssey by Isabel Löfgren and Per Hüttner:
“For the Normalcy project, we will build a pirate radio station on the floats of Mare Liberum. As an allusion to Radio Nord, a pirate radio station boat anchored on the edge of the archipelago in the late 60s, we will broadcast sound and text artworks that tell about the actual expedition to the lost island. A water symphony, a found radio newsreel from World War II, commercials from Radio Nord, a dialogue between the captain and a crew member of the Ö boat are examples of what listeners will catch on the airwaves.”
The Normalcy Project is a collaboration with The Royal Institute of Art.
