Luis Garay
Oro Lodo (Gold Mud)

Die Performance Oro Lodo (Golddreck) strebt mit grosser Dringlichkeit danach, die Fiktion des Materiellen zu entlarven, wonach alles, was nicht wir sind, uns mit Leben füllt. Luis Garay schafft Umgebungen, in denen Arbeit und Freizeit, Produktion und Reproduktion untrennbar sind. Der Titel Oro Lodo bezieht sich auf den Neobarroso, der vom queeren Schriftsteller und Aktivisten Nestor Perlongher (*1949, Argentinien; †1982, Brasilien) begründet wurde. In dieser verrückten Idee der Rückkehr eines dreckigen Neobarocks sucht das Stück nach einem Schlüssel zur Interpretation der Gegenwart, die voll ist von endlosen Wiederholungen und einer nutzlosen Üppigkeit. Das Stück ist ein Experimentierfeld für Verknüpfungen und Wahrnehmungen, die sich als Gegenvorstellung dessen ergeben, was der Mensch darstellt.

Oro Lodo works with material fictions where all that is not us is actually animating us. Through proliferation of signifiers, iteration without end and useless voluptuousness, the work creates a landscape where leisure and work are inseparable. Using the twisted idea of a return to a soiled and mudy neo baroque (proposed by Argentinian writer and activist Nestor Perlongher) the piece is a testing zone to assemblage other couplings and states of perception that arise from a counter-imagery of what is represented as human.

About
Luis Garay deals with detailed environments where ideas of labour and exercise explore simultaneous states of pleasure, alienation, emptiness and shared agency. He is constantly interested in the question of where a body is. This concern for "localization" traces the constant rendering of subjectivities without coordinates, in exile. He presented recently at The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, The Vienna Festival, Matadero Madrid, Kyoto Experiment Japan, Pompidou Metz, Theater International de la Cite, Paris, Montpellier Danse, SESC Sao Paulo, Panorama Festival Rio de Janeiro, among many others.

Mavi Veloso
MUDA/MUTE

Dieses Mal begann ich auf dem Boden. Etwas wird geschehen: Eine Explosion, die Zerstörung aller Ideen. Mit geschlossenen Augen halte ich das Mikrofon in meiner Hand. Ich lasse es über den Boden streichen, zeichne mit den Geräuschen eine Karte meiner Wege. In kompletter Dunkelheit lässt nur das Blitzlicht der Kameras erahnen, wie sich Bilder allmählich entwickeln. Können wir uns in Sicherheit wägen? Ich drehe die Lautstärke auf: Ich muss dich hören. Du musst mir zuhören. Dieser Soundtrack wird zu unserem Liebespakt. Ich tanze, krieche und gehe. Als ob diese Dunkelheit eine Revolution herbeiführen könnte.

MUDA/MUTE (stumm) ist Teil des Projekts #iwannamakerevolution. Eine Recherche, welche Mavi Veloso im Master of Voice am Sandberg Institut in Amsterdam, im Postmaster an der A.PASS in Brüssel sowie in Residenz bei ArtsEverywhere.ca erarbeitet hat. iwannamakerevolution.artseverywhere.ca

This time I started on the floor. I was afraid that what was going to happen could be a big destruction, something to explode everyone’s ideas. With eyes closed, I have the microphone in my hand. I touch it on the floor as if sticking the surface with sound could map me wherever to go. In complete darkness, camera flashes are the only way to highlight images gradually in development. We wonder if there’s possibility to be safe until the end. I turn up the sound as high as possible. I need to hear you, you need to hear me, we need to hear what. So how can we make this soundtrack become our pact of love? How can we make this noise witness the crime between you and I? I dance, I crawl, I walk... As if this blindness could turn revolution something possible.

MUDA/MUTE is part of the project #iwannamakerevolution, a research conducted at Master of Voice at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, postmaster research at A.PASS in Brussels, Belgium, and project in residency at ArtsEverywhere.ca iwannamakerevolution.artseverywhere.ca
