        • ODE TO THE ATTEMPT by Jan Martens i Dansehallerne 5. - 6. November 2014


          from Dansehallerne Added 368 0 0

          ODE TO THE ATTEMT er en ny solo som Jan Martens har skabt til sig selv. Det er en fjerlet og humoristisk dekonstruktion af den kreative proces. Når man opretter et kunstværk - uanset om det er et maleri, en performance eller hvilket som helst andet kunstværk - gennemgår kunstneren forskellige stadier. Disse stadier bliver overset, fordi de er "utilstrækkelige", og det er lag, der er blevet usynlige i den afsluttende fase af arbejdet. ODE TO ATTEMPT ønsker at give disse stadier, der aldrig har set dagens lys eller ville nå et publikum et andet liv, fordi måske har det disse stadier netop en kvalitet, der kan være lige så værdifulde som det endelige produkt. Jan Martens tematiserer her igen det ufuldkomne, og denne gang ikke som et adjektiv (som i en ufuldkommen krop), men som i en tilstand i sig selv, der er værd at blive delt, og at blive set.

            https://www.facebook.com/gripjanmartens www.janmartens.com ODE TO THE ATTEMPT is a new solo that Martens created for himself. After creating some almost dogmatic pieces as THE DOG DAYS ARE OVER and SWEAT BABY SWEAT, this new solo is a freeplace for Martens to fool around. The result is a collage-like self-portrait laying bare choreographic and other choices and his way of working and living. Authenticity, manipulation, coolness, perfectionism, humor and melancholy form the extremes between which Martens moves, wondering wether he is part of the new generation. ROSS DOUTHAT in the NEW YORK TIMES, march 15 2014: "In the future, it seems, there will be only one “ism” — Individualism — and its rule will never end. As for religion, it shall decline; as for marriage, it shall be postponed; as for ideologies, they shall be rejected; as for patriotism, it shall be abandoned; as for strangers, they shall be distrusted. Only pot, selfies and Facebook will abide." from and with jan martens thank you jeroen bosch, kristin de groot, joris van oosterwijk and all the Bproject Partners: Jheronimus Bosch 500 (NL), Comune di Bassano del Grappa (IT), Dance Umbrella London (UK) , La Briqueterie/CDC du Val de Marne (FR), D.ID Dance Identity (AT), Festival CEMENT (NL), Dansateliers Rotterdam (NL) supported by the Dutch Performing Arts Fund Jan Martens is artist in residence at ICKamsterdam and DansBrabant DATES 26 of march 2014 festival cement den bosch NL 27 of march 2014 festival cement den bosch NL 10 of may 2014 tanztage burgenland pinkafeld AU 5 of june 2014 queer zagreb CR 20 of june 2014 seasoning united-c eindhoven NL 26 of september 2014 abrons arts center / queer new york US 6 of november 2014 dansehallerne copenhagen DK 3 of december 2014 campo ghent BE 4 of december 2014 campo ghent BE 17 of january 2015 tanzhaus nrw DE 29 of march 2015 biennale de la danse du val-de-marne FR 11 of april 2015 motel mozaique rotterdamse schouwburg rotterdam NL 16 of may 2015 dansweek rotterdamse schouwburg rotterdam NL

              Vorig jaar maakte de Irakees-Nederlandse filmmaker Farazdak Chaichan (o.a. VPRO, Al Jazeera, eerste prijs voor lange documentaire op het Abu Dhabi Film Festival) in opdracht van het Domein een documentaire over een nieuwe generatie makers op Festival Cement 2013 over hun talent, ontwikkeling en bevlogenheid. Aan het woord zijn Lucas De Man, Jan Martens, Nick Steur, BOG en Katja Heitmann. Over zichzelf als creator, crowdfunder, kijker en levend standbeeld. Over de relatie tussen publiek, waardering en kunstenaar. BOG: "We willen voorstellingen maken waarbij je daarna meer zin hebt over de inhoud te praten dan over het licht, over hoe we hebben gespeeld of over het decor." www.festivalcement.nl/blog

Choreography: Jan Martens. Dance: Truus Bronkhorst and Jan Martens (BIS), and Joke Emmers (La Bête). 23/5, Theater Kikker, Utrecht. Tour dates: janmartens.com 'A screaming woman on a stool.' That's how one spectator saw the dance solo by Truus Bronkhorst. But BIS is infinitely more than that. It's an ardent love torch, parting grief, struggle with age, inexhaustible energy: it's Truus Bronkhorst (61). For decades, she was the standard-bearer of expressionist dance in the Netherlands, until her subsidy ended in 2005. Now she's back on the stage from time to time. Bronkhorst is 'solo one' in Dialogue, the new double bill by young choreographer Jan Martens (28), who surprised us with a diptych of duets earlier this season. Bronkhorst's solo BIS has a woman aggressively chalking words onto the backdrop from right to left, her marked face looking significantly older than her body. 'Come back' (3 x), 'Stay' (2 x), 'Leave' (1 x), 'Please' (1 x). You read from it the confusion that her relationship, her life in the theatre, has gone through. Young Martens, who symbolizes Bronkhorst's past, drags her across the floor before leaving her on her own. In her black-lace body she hoists herself onto a stool, like a swimmer climbing the high board. And then, first with a tentative and incredulous 'oh', the great moaning and lamenting begins. The 'ah's chill you to the bone. Here's a bird that's lost the ability to fly. BIS is crystal clear, devoid of embellishment, and it can do without the music (Is That All There Is) that is played at a certain moment. To put it bluntly: that turns it into kitsch. Martens gently lifts his dancer from the stool and lays out a pair of warm socks for her. This beautiful purity should have been enough. Solo two, La Bête, could be characterised as a performance by a flabby girl wearing hot pants and a red bra who blasts Bette Midler's The Rose into the auditorium whilst moving awkwardly. It must be said that actress Joke Emmers, too, (23, familiar as the nurse-apprentice in the TV series Charlie) is much more than that. Not only is she the perfect complement to Bronkhorst with this famous song about hope and faith in love, but the way she sings it – slowed down, cut up, distorted, with the pumped-up volume in a predominantly masculine bass register – taken in combination with her appearance, which falls short of the standard beauty ideal, also comes together with Bronkhorst and her wry performance. Martens is a smart fellow.
