1. A Future Archeology


    from TEXTURES Added

    Photography, Editing, Direction: Thomas Martius Camera: Benjamin Bayer Dramaturgy: Katrin Wächter Voiceover, Piano: Neal Wach The title "A Future Archeology" assumes that given (social) structures are to be excavated in order to comprehend their constructedness. Referring to the experience of the social and political crisis in Egypt and Europe, Silke Bake, Ismail Fayed, Adham Hafez and Peter Stamer initiated the international project "A Future Archeology" to embrace the needs and potentials for difference. Together with Igor Dobricic, Samir El-Kordy, Christine Standfest, and Bettina Vismann, they set out to explore questions such as: What kind of society do we want to live in? What are the conditions we need to create for our lives? The group of artists from the fields of choreography, architecture and theatre tried to address these challenges through building spatial structures in Berlin, Vienna and Cairo. In March 2013, they met for their first extensive research and working period at Uferstudio 14 in Berlin. The video "A Future Archeology" by Thomas Martius documents, gives insight into and reflects on this first phase of the project.

    • Jeremy Xido + Igor Dobricic: Residencies In Depth


      from EMPAC @ Rensselaer Added 88 1 0

      An expedition through the history of colonial Portugal, the travelogues of Burton Holmes, the films of Bruce Lee and Jim Kelly, the Detroit race riots/rebellion, Berlin documentary film crews in Africa, and the blood-thirsty mechanisms of international film finance. The Angola Project is three-part solo performance, with the third part co-commissioned and produced during residencies at EMPAC. The performance is a fusion of film and narrative, tales and fragments, joining together and crumbling away. Having its roots in the tradition of travel lectures that emerged in the 19th century, CABULA6 invites the audience on a journey into Jeremy Xido’s real-life attempts to finance a film and confront the truths of mortality in the 21st century. Curator: Ash Bulayev http://empac.rpi.edu/events/2013/fall/angola-project

        "The Angola Project belonged to the pearls of the [Impulstanz] festival.... CABULA6 shows with its Lecture Performance that just through verbal narration with image and video support, a thrilling choreography can emerge." Der Standard "The marvelously quixotic attempt of an artist trying to figure out what he wants to say and how best to say it…The Angola Project, derives its structure and meaning from the disparate layers stacked up by Mr. Xido and then spread out to create a jostling collage, one that is intimate yet informed by sweeping issues surrounding class, race and identity." NY Times "A multidisciplinary performance series...revealing a vulnerable and magnetic personality." Dance Enthusiast "A wonderfully roundabout departure from traditional theater." Eye on Dance PART 2, "Angola" : delves deeper into Xido's quest to construct a feature film script as he travels to Angola along the Benguela Railway - currently being rebuilt by Chinese construction companies. Xido - the sole onstage performer in this entire series - must carefully navigate the minefield of international film financing, constantly reconfiguring his script and feature film pitch accordingly. www.angola-project.com New York Times : http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/15/arts/dance/cabula6s-angola-project-at-dance-new-amsterdam.html?_r=1&

        • THE ANGOLA PROJECT, Part 3


          from CABULA6 Added 210 0 0

          Created by Claudia Heu, Igor Dobricic and Jeremy Xido, The Angola Project playfully straddles the worlds of performance and film-making as the audience watches a movie being constructed from fragments of film and narrative right before their eyes, only to crumble again into disarray. A trilogy of solo performances playing with and tearing apart the tradition of Travel Lectures that emerged in the 19th century, The Angola Project leads the audience on a very personal journey into Xido's real-life attempts to finance a film and confront the truths of mortality. It is a dizzying expedition through the history of colonial Portugal, the Travelogues of Burton Holmes, the films of Bruce Lee and Jim Kelly, the Detroit race riots/rebellion, Berlin documentary film crews in Africa and the blood-thirsty mechanisms of international film finance. A funny and moving investigation into global events and the complex and often unexpected polycultural mash-up identities emerging in the 21st century. The Angola Project pushes the limits of story telling as desire and dream-making slams into the deadly realities of heartbreak. PART 3: "XIN - Heart of the Matter" : is a work-in-progress of the creators' intent to produce a disastrous failure - maybe discovering something true and valuable among the ruins. Part 3 begins with a trip through the side of a mountain in Southern China...but not really. It actually begins with heartbreak and the end of story telling. It is an act of courting failure as perhaps the only way out, the only viable way into the future. XIN is an attempt to drop one's guard and just get to the very heart of the matter. www.angola-project.com

[1] Originally, “Hair” is a title of a rock musical by James Rado and Gerome Ragni. A product of the hippie counter-culture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. The musical’s profanity, caused much comment and controversy. The musical broke new ground in musical theatre by defining the genre of “rock musical” and inviting the audience onstage for a “Be-In” finale. [2] Opera is an art form in which singers and musicians perform a dramatic work combining text (called a libretto) and musical score. Opera incorporates many of the elements of spoken theatre, such as acting, scenery, and costumes and sometimes includes dance. The word opera means “work” in Italian (it is the plural of Latin opus meaning “work” or “labour”) suggesting that it combines the arts of solo and choral singing, declamation, acting and dancing in a staged spectacle. [3] According to Aristotle, act-uality, in contrast to potentiality, is the motion, change or activity that represents an exercise or fulfillment of a possibility, when a possibility becomes real in the fullest sense.
