THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN
Maëlle Gross

Langzeit-Performance & Ausstellung / durational Performance & Exhibition

Die Performance THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN von Maëlle Gross experimentiert zum ersten Mal über 6 Stunden mit Charakteren, die weder vollständig menschlich noch vollständig weiblich oder völlig Cyborg sind und von der patriarchalischen Erde nach Sirius, dem Planeten der weiblichen Energie, entfliehen. Auf dem Weg zum Planeten Sirius beginnen sie, die von Männern-dominierte Sprache zu vergessen und neue Formen der Kommunikation und Identität anzunehmen, die vom New Age 2.0 inspiriert sind. Der Besucher ist eingeladen, an dieser Reise teilzunehmen und darf jederzeit ein- und aussteigen.

Die Performance findet in der Ausstellung I will be your idol statt. Die Video-basierten Arbeiten fragen nach der Herkunft unserer kulturellen Referenzen und dem komplexen Verhältnis zwischen normativen und subversiven Kulturen. Insbesondere sind weibliche Figuren vertreten, diese brechen binäre Codes und versuchen durch die Neudefinition etablierter Geschlechterstereotypen den gegebenen Machtverhältnissen zu widerstehen. Ihr gemeinsames Ziel ist es die Produktion von Wissen zu beeinflussen. Die Ausstellung stellt sich eine Welt vor, in der sich die neuen Idole gegen das zeitgenössische Denken behaupten und die fortlaufende Narration zerrütten. Kuratiert von Camille Regli, ist die Ausstellung vom 4 – 20 April 2019 im Oncurating space geöffnet. Es beinhaltet Werke von Gery Georgieva, Maëlle Gross und Ceylan Öztrük. http://oncurating-space.org/

The performance THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN by Maëlle Gross is experimenting or the first time over 6-hours, featuring characters that are neither fully human, nor completely female, nor totally cyborg. Escaping the Earth and on their way to planet Sirius - the planet of feminine energy - they little by little start forgetting the male-dominated language and adopt new forms of communication and identity inspired by the New Age 2.0. The visitor is invited to take part in this journey, dropping-in and out of the vessel whenever they wished. 

The performance takes place within the exhibition I will be your idol. The video-based show examines the origin of our cultural references and questions the relationship between normative and subversive cultures. More specifically, the works (re)present female-like figures who, by redefining established gender constructions and breaking binary codes, resist power relations and influence knowledge production. By shedding light on these new representations, the exhibition imagines a world in which these idols can stand up against contemporary knowledge and subvert the narratives. Curated by Camille Regli, the exhibition is open from 4 – 20 april 2019 at the Oncurating space. It includes works by Gery Georgieva, Maëlle Gross and Ceylan Öztrük. http://oncurating-space.org/

Alice Ripoll / Cia REC
aCORdo

Verschiedene soziale Gruppen, reich und arm, haben oft nur minimalen Kontakt. Manchmal sind «die anderen» sogar komplett unsichtbar. Theatergängerinnen und -gänger befinden sich meist in sicherer Distanz zu Kriminalität und Chaos, innerhalb einer sozialen Ordnung, deren Durchsetzung jedoch von Unterdrückung und Einschüchterung begleitet ist.

Die Arbeit der brasilianischen Choreografin Alice Ripoll beruft sich auf die entgegengesetzten sozialen Realitäten in Rio de Janeiro. In ihrem Stück «aCORdo» drehen die vier Darsteller*innen die vorherrschenden Hierarchien und Beziehungen zwischen den Anwesenden durch Bewegung und Interaktion um. Auf subtile und scheinbar harmlose Weise entsteht eine neue Ordnung, in der sich Tänzer*in und Zuschauer*in unweigerlich neu orientieren müssen. Wer ist jetzt wer? Wer stiehlt von wem?

The contact between different social groups, between rich and poor, is often minimal. The existence of the other is sometimes even totally invisible. Theatre visitors are usually at a safe distance from crime and chaos, within a social order. However, the enforcement of that order is accompanied by oppression and intimidation.

The work of Brazilian choreographer Alice Ripoll is driven by the polarised social reality in Rio de Janeiro. In aCORdo, four performers turn the existing hierarchies and relationships between attendees inside-out through movement and interaction. In a subtle and seemingly innocent manner, a new order arises in which both dancer and spectator must inevitably reorient themselves. Who is who now? Who steals from whom?

About
Alice Ripoll Choreographer based in Rio de Janeiro, Alice directs two dance groups, REC and SUAVE. She investigates relationships between contemporary dance, theater, performance and Brazilian urban dances. Her performances are being showed at several festivals and theatres in Brazil and abroad, such as Les Rencontres Chorégraphiques de Seine-Saint- Denis, Zurich Theater Spektakel, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Centre Pompidou, HAU, and others.

Founded in 2009, Cia REC is a powerful group of ghetto artists – all the members were born in Brazilian’s slums - that elaborates and recreates the contemporary art. Composed by the director Alice Ripoll and the performers Alan Ferreira, Leandro Coala, Tony Hewerton and Romulo Galvão, the group, with intense production, has three contemporary dance shows, a piece aimed at children and a performance.

Vincent Riebeek
One of a kind

One of a Kind ist ein zeitgenössisches Musical welches Vincent Riebeek in seiner zweijährigen Master-Recherche am DAS Theatre entwickelt hat. Eine rasende Show mit Musical-Elementen, Drag, Lip-Sync und Akrobatik: Auf der Grenze zwischen Kunst und Unterhaltung zeigen vier Tänzer*innen, dass Körper ebenso wandelbar sind wie Identitäten. In einer Scharade aus Geschlechterrollen und Stereotypen, Verkleidung und Enthüllung nehmen sie das Publikum mit auf eine Achterbahnfahrt der Referenzspiele. Überraschend und visionär verschmelzen vermeintliche Widersprüche zu einer befreienden Erfahrung, die einlädt, die Fesseln der Normativität endgültig zu kappen!

 

One of a Kind is a contemporary musical Vincent Riebeek developed during his two-year Master-research at Das Theatre. This quartet takes the audience on a rollercoaster that whisks you up into its whirlwind pace that motions through multiple genres and narratives. To distinguishing assimilation from appropriation the material gives voice to a personal yet conceptual view on identity, authenticity and solidarity. The exuberant cocktail of theatrical, choreographic, musical and textual elements creates a complex, yet coherent, proposal where dance, text and acting find their non-hierachical place in carrying content. The core intention of the work is to create a liberating experience that is empowering both audience and performer, based in the belief that a ‘symbolic act’ has the potential to transform our daily thinking and doing.

About
Vincent Riebeek (*1990) got accepted at the Amsterdamse Hoogeschool voor de Kunsten at age 16 to eventually graduate with a Bachelor in Choreography from SNDO in 2013, while being a Dance Web recipient at Impulstanz Festival during his studies in 2010. His work has been presented across Europe and abroad and has earned critical acclaim for shifting boundaries between high culture and entertainment while getting appointed numerous prices and residencies. Riebeek concluded his research and studies at Das Arts in Amsterdam with a Master degree in Theatre in 2018.
