International dance performances at the Theatre Academy

 

Choreography students at the Tartu University Sylvia Köster and Eline Selgis artistic thesis works Quadrature and Look at All the Silverware will be seen in the Theatre Academy Wednesday May 11. at 19 o’clock.

Quadrature is a non-narrative moving performance that carries the audience through a rhizometric spin to the equations of a human soul. We're looking for a solution to the problem with the line and the sound and the movement that appear as one yet are never really quite the same. The question is, whether there is any answer to our souls or to what extent can one keep solving?

Look at All the Silverware courteously invites you to a very common situation which is a fancy dinner. Look at all the silverware, look at all the glasses! Rejecting the invitation would have been impolite. Atmosphere is full of tension. Expectations, manners, traditions, table hierarchy, table rules. Where do we start? Where to sit? What not to do?

Trinity Laban Conservatory’s Master’s Degree Student’s dance group Transitions Dance Company will give a triple bill night Wednesday May 18 at 19 o’clock. They will perform pieces from Dog Kennel Hill Project -collective, Theo Clinkard and  Ederson Rodrigues Xavier.

11.5. at 19 Studio 4

Prone/Altis/Benägen − scores of surrender

Surrendering implies a defeatist attitude, a giving up and not doing what should be done. Its antonyms are words of power, motion and speed: to fight, to win, to be victorious. This reveals a binary logic at work; winning and losing, work and leisure, productivity and non-productivity set as polar opposites. Surrendering, however, has multiple meanings. It implies a self-reflexivity, an active giving (oneself) back, a listening in order to feel the relation.

At a time when getting resistant seems to be a more valid strategy than finding resistance, attention is given to individual ways of producing one's self. Prone explores other durations and states with matters and materials that do not fit such economies of production: the body, trash, rest, care, presence, excess, learning by doing, repetition and stuttering. It is giving oneself back to the qualities, spaces and times that are made invisible and absent by the constant need to produce.

Prone is a series of durational performances/live installations in Studio 3 of the Theatre Academy in May 2016. Instead of becoming resistant by proxy we explore time, rest, care and attend to the excess, waste and non-productive elements of our work in order to redefine resistance, presence and duration as a being-with and giving oneself back, as becoming prone.

The space, Studio 3, is open 16th-28th May

See proneproject.tumblr.com at the end of April for more information, dates and times.

Working Group: Juha-Matti Lappalainen, Markus Lindén, Nina Numminen, Gesa Piper, Henna Tanskanen, Hannah Maria Gullichsen (LAPS, MA thesis work)
