This week was about going deeper into some of the starting points we already have, to discover how they potentially interact with each other
How to create transformation by…imagining
Pitching, imagination, describing the unseeable, ultimate performance, speaking the unthinkable, finding transformations, transforming within descriptions, from idea to idea, bringing opposites together, merging the unmergeable, triggers
Coralie’s pitch…performative parcours
Mark Christoph’s pitch…ever-changing identities of objects and bodies
Jasiek’s pitch…layering overlaying
Guusje’s pitch…a tent in a tent in a tent
Sarah’s pitch…seducing attention
That fucking cunt!
Shouted this bitch
Look at her!
Look at him!
Look me in the eyes.
Everyone did have ideas,
Every brain saw something else.
That day they took the time to listen
Realising Coralie’s pitch…performative parcours
Two solos, impact of speed, paper skirt, see of fabric, floating head, worlds colliding, balancing movement and speech, dichotomy, over and over and over, merging with the movement, heavy, soft, hard, light, head, arm, head, leg
They imagined a parcours
A world of wonders
Immersive from conception
One rose, declined, scrawled under, moved aside.
Two entered, none left, and exit on the right.
Realising Mark Christoph’s pitch…ever-changing identities of objects and bodies
Realising – one object, transformation in function, transformation through esthetics, plethora, hard cuts, soft transformations, fashion show, bauhaus, fluid motion, falling to the floor, grandma put a blanket on your knees.
in the end
it’s still just
not a dress,
not ripped apart,
still the same
Realising Jasiek’s pitch…layering overlaying
Realising – grande improvisation, something to hold on to, paper trail, outlining the parts, moving together, narrated imagination,stretching the lines,bluebodies,trappedinthe decor,chaos, pi l i n g u p, c l e a r n e s s, r e v i e w i n g t h e artwork.
improvisation between them
It is a black box,
everything (looked at from the audience space) just is,
presented and rather unconcrete
the transformation is taking place
but on that day Jasiek guided us
performing for our mentor Marc
Realising Guusje’s pitch…a tent in a tent in a tent
Realising – covering up, open space, projection through materials, difference in scale, breathing decor, transforming the theater, comfort, light play, improvising structure, negotiating a space, warming up with a chainreaction of recycling.
It transformed the space
It was transformed
Formed in different than it was before
Sheets became walls and ceilings
Glitter, ropes, bodies and tubes.
Finally, the lamps had purpose
And the space was space no more.
