JASNA LAYES-VINOVRSKI • Moving Talk Show • Uferstudio 11
Following the track of her last performance "Under Construction", Jasna Layes Vinovrski continues investigating the relationship between language, movement and immediacy. This work attempts to disrupt the understanding we have of the three words moving, talk and show as well as our perception of "liveness." What happens now, for the first time and what was planned and rehearsed to happen?
"Host: So, what’s the name of your piece?
Guest: Moving Talk Show.
Host: Is this a real Talk Show?
Guest: Yes and no.
Host: What is it then?
Guest: It’s something between the Talk Show and the Performance
Host: And why is it called “moving”?
Guest: Because it’s moving between a Talk Show and a Performance
Host: And do you have guests in the show?
Guest: Yes, of course.
Host: Are they then playing guests or they are real guests?
Guest: They are real and they are playing.
Host: What do you mean?
Guest: I mean, how real am I to you? "
ALEXANDRE ACHOUR • OBJEKT 2 • Uferstudio 3
The starting point for "Object 2" was to work with light. Together with Florian Bach, we developed a concept based on light and performance in two weeks. Angela Munoz Martinez joint us in the process and I worked with her alone. The last team member was Julian Crotti who stepped in the project for the last two weeks. The very last week of the process was crucial as the whole team gathered for the first time. The work is based on suspense and tension. A big source of inspiration was The Shining by Stanley Kubrick and Der Lauf der Dinge by Peter Fischli and David Weiss.
Alexandre Achour completed a contemporary dance education at the London Contemporary Dance School (The Place) where he was awarded with the Robert Cohan Award. He is currently studying the Masterprogramme „Choreography“ at the HZT Berlin. Parallel to his dance career he choreographed his own work, Insert a coin and La costurera which were performed at The Place theatre. In 2009 Alexandre Achour was part of a transcultural residency, Dance Beyond Borders, where he choreographed A family resemblance performed at Dancekiosk festival in Hamburg. His latest work Objekt 1 was presented in Leipzig.
