ATTILA ANDRASI

ONCE UPON A TIME

Photo by: Manel Ortega

Description:

Throughout the research process I have been trying to answer three big questions of life. Where humans originate? What are we made of? How do we progress? The aim of my research is to create different images in relations to these questions.

The original piece was made in 2016 at Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance  (SEAD)

Bio:

He was born in Hungary where his interest in dance started at the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy. He gained his first experience in performing at Trafo and Mu Theatre in Budapest. Attila continued his studies at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) where he gained professional experience at different festivals. (New Face Dance Festival in Salzburg, Symphonic Dance Festival, Tanz House Festival and To Spring Tanz Festival in Salzburg) During his time he worked with Alleyene Dance Company (UK), Eduardo Torroja (ESP), Jelka MIllic (SL), Elton Petri (GR), Rakes Sukes (IND) after he finished his study He was collaborating with Lior Lazarof (ISR),  HZT Academy, Berlin with Anna Németh (HU) and The Ryder Project Gallery in London with Andrea Canepa (CO).

SABINA MOE

STRING THEORY

Description:

String Theory is a research performance based on empathy and teamwork. Five audience members will tie an access to point to the performer and influence, or just listen, to what follows. String Theory provides anonymous responsibility to the on-looker and valuable information to the stage. This piece provides creative influence for and by the audience as well as tangible responsibility for all parties involved. What will we learn, where will we go, and who will we see on this corporeal kite ride together?

Bio:

Sabina Moe is a choreographer//performer from the U.S. She makes work for the purpose of joy and empathy. She has lots of friends. She has make lots of work. She has lots of work still to be done. Hi Mom.

NADI

GOGOULOU

MY MOVE

Description:

“The move” is a piece about all, more or less, movements we do in order to do a single movement. It is about a kinetic research of a dancer’s usual movements, which does without even think. It is about an effort to be more considerate about how a dancer moves all the time. A constant battle of mind and body in order to do the right movements, with the proper quality and to keep the balance concerning the choreography, the dramaturg and the perfect timing. So the idea is to do and speak loud to myself of what to do and the audience is experiencing live my thoughts and my interpretation. This piece is an improvisation solo, concerning my kinetic patterns and has a goal to break through my habits in movement.

Concept/Performing/Musical design: Nadi Gogoulou
Support: KID Residency (Malme, Sweden 2018)

Bio:

Nadi Gogoulou is a professional dancer/performer. She graduated a professional dance school in 2011 and she has a degree in Economics from 2013. She mostly works as a dancer with many Greek choreographers in dance performances and site specific performances, but also as a creator of her own choreographies. Works of her own is the pieces “DownFall”, “On the spot”, “Late Night Impro”. In addition to that she directs her own short dance films and some of them had been presented in the Athens Video Dance Project, Moving Images International Video Dance Festival and International Dance Film Festival, in Greece, Cyprus and Belgium respectfully. She works also in theater productions as a director of the movement and occasionally she gives contemporary dance classes to amateurs and actors.

MARCELLA STÉEN

THE POWER OF ONE

Description: 
How an ashamed body moves when it is forced into action. Revealed when it is not ready to be visible. Needing to disappear. What we shame or celebrate is about what ideas we have of right or wrong.
A critical perspective on feelings, power structures & space. But there is a fantasy of freedom — depowering oppressive structures, unlearning and unbecoming what is constituted. Freedom from having to be or do, from expectations, discipline and the essential.

Bio:

Marcella Quinchavil Stéen is a Swedish-Chilean dance artist. Her artistic practice is inspired of somatic practices, everyday habits and how words construct situations. Her performative interest lies in the banal, what knowledge is and both the vulnerable and the ridiculous in being a human. That, in order to have a critical perspective on feelings, performance and power structures.

She graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with a first class degree BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance, London, U.K. Currently, she is undertaking a MFA in Performing Arts. She has worked with very famous people, and is very famous herself.

SARAH JEGELKA & HANNES BUDER

NOTHINGNESS

Description:

Instant composition for cello & dance 

Observe the empty space between inhaling and exhaling. 

Trap into the silence between the words.

Things disappear, only the last substance remains.

Forms disappear, only the formless remains. 

Definitions disappear, the undefined remains. 

But this very pure space is there before anything comes into being.

Cello: Hannes Buder

Dance: Sarah Jegelka

Bio:

AMPLIFIED BRICKS1.jpg

BRAD NATH

AMPLIFIED BRICKS

Description:
Bricks cast with embedded audio electronics allow the ubiquitous building modules to function as sound objects when amplified. The performance will feature a selection of bricks from a system that is being developed to construct full-scale sonically sensitive architectural environments. Made from a range of materials—concrete, plaster, wax, and silicone—each brick expresses its unique sonic ontology when activated by a performer or stacked upon another, resulting in physical feedback.

Bio:
Brad Nath is working between architectural design and sound art to develop techniques of space-making which are sensitive to the vibrations that occur at audible frequencies. Emerging from the belief that the architect is not only an organizer of space, but also of time, and that likewise the composer is not only an organizer of time, but also of space, he seeks to expand upon the built environment's temporal vocabulary through material research, performance, composition, installation, and built environments. Brad recently moved to Berlin from New York, where he completed a B.Arch thesis titled "Acoustectonics" with advisers from the Architecture and Music Departments at Cornell University.

MIMOWERK1.jpg

JOSÉPHINE AUFFRAY

MIMOWERK

Description:
MIMOWERK is a journey through multiple personas drawing a self-portrait. Always having had an obsessive pleasure in dressing up and acting out as different characters while being in my own environment: my room, I decided to use it as a starting point for research. My room felt like an experimental laboratory far from any fears. Perhaps I had spatial restrictions but certainly no boundaries when it came to dare to push unknown doors. My main tool of work was my video camera, I could analyse my self-image and behaviours by watching the videos made during my journey into defining my different personas. Punk culture has been essential throughout the process as it helped my awakening of my inside scream: ANGER. MIMOWERK is an inside scream loudly extracted to the outside, a confrontation, a manifestation, a denunciation, a call. 
'It makes me believe; it pushes me to experiment with myself and be louder and louder, bringing dreams and nightmares to a fantasy reality.'

Bio:
Joséphine Auffray studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London (2015-2018) for the BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance. In 2017, as part of the Erasmus programme, Joséphine studied at Folkwang Universität der Künste in Essen for several months. During her training, Joséphine has been performing works by Merce Cunningham, Alison Curtis Jones, Marina Collard, Heidi Rustgaard, Claude Brumachon and Benjamin Lamarche. Throughout this period, she has been able to experience collaborations with artists such as Ellen Van Schuylenburch, John Richards and Rodolfo Araya. By studing at Laban School, Joséphine achieved and collected choreographic tools, which pushed her to create already two of her own works; KLIMAX and MIMOWERK. Originally from France, Joséphine first studied in the Conservatoire de Nantes with intense ballet training along teachers such as Nathalie Quernet, Maurice Courchay and Marie-Elisabeth Demaille. Deeply attracted to contemporary values, she then followed in the same Conservatoire the contemporary dance Course along teachers such as Rodolfo Araya, Rosine Nadjard and Anne Carrié.

CHOPSTICKS.jpg

GIORGIA REITANI & FRANCESCA MEROLLA

CHOPSTICKS

Description:
‘Chopsticks’ is born from a collaboration between the two Italian dancers Francesca Merolla and Giorgia Reitani and the Vietnamese choreographer Khai Ngoc Vu, during the year 2017-2018 in which they worked at the Tanzcompagnie Volkstheatre Rostock. The duet, 15 minutes long, uses movements to voice a desire of union. What does it mean to have a tradition in our society that perpetually forces us to move and start from zero somewhere else? How can we feel at home when the circumstances are hostile and hard? With this tumultuous lifestyle, Where/How do we find peace? Perhaps in the reminiscing of our culture, far away as it may be. Perhaps in a common fight. Or maybe we attempt to conjure up something completely new to draw us back towards that innocent and overflowing state of serenity and play that we experienced so strongly before we got conscious, growing more ravenous and blinded by every failed attempt. Our journey does not really give an answer but it can give us some calmness in the experience of union, collaboration and honesty with the other. When we put our hearts together as part of a unique body, the struggle is easier and the journey morphs into a pleasant succession of moments of freedom and belonging.

Bios:
Between 2013-2016 Italian-born Giorgia Reitani studied at Iwanson International. After the education she worked for Hannes Härtl in the production ‘Bloodlines’, in Munich, Germany. Then she worked for two years at the Tanzcompagnie Volstheater Rostock, being part of different productions of Katja Taranu and the show ’The four seasons’ choreographed from Elias Lazaridis. She is dancing in the piece choreographed by Khai Ngoc Vu “Chopsticks” with Francesca Merolla.

In 2016, after her graduation at the Iwanson International, she started her apprenticeship at the ZfinMalta Dance Ensemble. She was then part of the Tanzcompagnie Volstheater Rostock, performing ‘The four seasons’ choreographed by Elias Lazaridis. She worked for Iván Pérez in the production ‘Island’ in Wrocalw, Poland and she is currently part of B’cause Dance Company in Warsaw. She is dancing in the piece choreographed by Khai Ngoc Vu “Chopsticks” with Giorgia Reitani.

Fictive magicians. Dragon Ball Z. Fantastic animals. 

When a child plays, he is sometimes taken by the desire of creating the sound effects of his own actions. And as he navigates blithely in his imaginary world that protects him from the gaze of others, the sounds naturally come out of his mouth. I play with reminiscences of that state to create a language for improvisation, this time fully exposed.

Bio:
Camille Chapon / Jofe D'mahl, Artist based in Berlin.
Director and Host of the Cabaret for arts and mixed performances called "Carte Blanche".
Member of a performance trio called "Eternuer", together with Bruno Ducret and Tom Bouët.
Invested in pedagogy, teaching improvisation workshop for children and adults.
2014, Master of Fine Art, Ecole supérieure d’art et de design – ESAD-GV, France.

Great Circus of Failure_Helsinki01.jpg

MASHA FOMENKO & PETR LADEN

GREAT CIRCUS OF FAILURE

Description:
Great Circus of Failure combines approaches of contemporary music and dance, performance arts, new media art and reworks them in new circumstances. There are two main points for acting: enjoyment of art, equal to enjoyment of life, and the idea of personal memory, keeping unstable (quantum) state of the happening.

Bio:
Great Circus of Failure was formed in spring 2018 by Petr Laden and Masha Fomenko. Masha has background in the field of game development and theory of interaction of computer gaming with spatial performative practices. Petr worked as video and performance artist and curator.

Dust flyer update.jpg

Visiting artists in residence Francesca Frewer and Erika Mitsuhashi will share their work in progress 'DUST' on Thursday, September 20th at 19:00 @ PAUL Studios. Join us in viewing the culmination of a two week residency at PAUL!

Dust is a contemporary performance piece created by Erika Mitsuhashi and Francesca Frewer, and performed by Francesca Frewer. Inspired by poet Anne Carson’s study of female characters who refuse to fit into straightforward understandings of how they should be, with this piece they are exploring ways of embodying the uncanny, with the aim of manifesting the bizarre and unsettling onstage. Using choreographed movement, improvisation, text, and projection, the solo takes place inside a complex set constructed of dynamic and sometimes precarious materials. It is created in collaboration with Adam Asnan (sound) and Nellie Gossen (costume/set design).

"Resonances" - Lola Lefèvre

“I will never forget those first instances. Often I only remembered the fist names of these men and women as though, subconsciously, I thought of them as my brothers and sisters. Their distress resonated in me; I thought I could share it, when in fact it was just an echo of my own distress. Absence, void, light. Perhaps just light”

Edouard, Macha, Nicolae, Joseph, Dillia, Valodia, Patrick, Alejandra, Denis, Lucie, Pierre, Davie, Piotr, Niolae, Cristian, Maria, Danielle, Josiane, Vasiliev, Olivier, Rolf, Jean Marc, Patricia, Marcel - Vibrating link in between us and the world, all these names resonate in me since the first moment I saw their faces. Sensible place where I allow myself to fall into, “Resonances” is a moment of sharing. A place where I allow myself to be fully vulnerable, a place where I can be. Call for light. For you Nicolae, and all the others.

Lola Lefèvre

Lola Lefèvre is a French dancer and performer. After a high level training in Rhythmic gymnastic, she decided to turn to contemporary dance by passing her Choreographic Diploma in the CRR of Boulogne Billancourt (France), before joining in 2014, the professional school of contemporary dance SEAD in Salzburg (Austria). Under a very poetic artistic line, she combines dance and performance with romanticism, and is particularly interested in interdisciplinary collaboration.


"Boom Boom!" - Kazuma Motomura

Boom Boom! Is a direct reaction of body to the music. Which music? A complex super layered glitchy multi rhythm machine gun composed by musician and beat maker Zozo. How much of the beats and accents can the body catch, all the while reacting to audience and the space around the dancing body? 
Which body? Dance and performance maker Kazuma Glen Motomura tackles the music head on with his body physically composed of memories of dancing around the universe.

Kazuma Glen Motomura

Half Japanese, half South African. Dances a melange of contemporary and street/club styles. Finalist of Juste Debout 2018 World Championship battles in street dance and winner in the Experimental division in London.

“Stickman” - Darragh Mcgloughlin

Stickman works extensively with the concept of (re)framing: periodically shifting the conceptual /emotional setting of the work on order to continuously challenge the audiences interpretation of the piece. This is achieved primarily through use of linguistic framing, whereby a TV displays titles /sentences which dramatically shift the focus of what we see age experience. Stickman is more about the the moment of interpretation than what is being interpreted. 

The main content of the work is the result of two years of investigation into object balancing. Balance as a means to force the body into a perpetual state of motion. The body responds out of pure necessity, and through this begins to speak.

Darragh Mcgloughlin

Darragh was born in Ireland in 1987, son to two chefs. He has a degree in contemporary circus and performance at, yet these days is happy to just call himself a creator and performer without sticking to one genre or another. He is the artistic director of Squarehead Productions, and is currently based in Berlin. Stickman is his 3rd full length creation.


"Duo" - Eric Wong & Siri Salminen

The duo investigate and try to captivate moments with the guitar, movement, and percussive footwork in the manner of improvisation. Delicate and glittery yet with a touch of explosion and punk. The scrap is rolling in the wind.

WAS WIR MÖGLICHERWEISE ZUSAMMEN BEENDEN KÖNNTEN

FRIDAY JUNE 8TH 17:00 & 20:00 @ PAUL STUDIOS BERLIN

In What We Could Possibly Finish Together, we visit a space inhabited by four people exploring everyday life. Situations and actions become stuck in loops, while synchronicities build a harmonic togetherness and a total incomprehension. Four people search for spontaneity as a base for an undisguised dialogue, search for playfulness as a livable concept to commit to a transparent togetherness.

The PAUL Collective performs together for the first time ever as a part of The Performing Arts Festival (PAF) 2018! Get your tickets now at:

SOFT FISTS INSIST

NICOLA BULLOCK

What happens when dreams and reality collide? In "soft fists insist", a woman is confronted with popular images and ideas about how she-young, white, and female- should behave in the world. As she grapples to interpret these ideations, she begins to lose track of her deeper needs and fears. A piece about the space between what we are and what we imagine ourselves to be, "soft fists insist" asks the question, how does the unconscious relate to social constructions such as femininity, aging, and desire?

ODE TO YOU

 

MANON SIV DUQUESNAY

High-five to the ridiculous effort to escape oneself. A tribute to the impossibility to comprehend. Anyways, the right circumstances will never be there.
Hope for their contributions, the black sheep illuminations. A sensorization of belonging to. An ode to the miseries, talents & imaginations of all those little fires unexpected.

DESCRIBE

ERI WATANABE

I describe of my feelings, when I expression to something that I use to my body. My feelings is always not fixed, like a wave and electrocardiogram. My image flow into the outside.
