#3 Dear Shapes in Space: WDKA performances
“Dear Shapes in Space”
After creating their dream like environments in Pictura, The Performance Bar, Root galerie, Kunstmuseum Den Haag and Witte Rook, the Alter Moderna performance-gang has found its way to UBIK, to create yet another lucid dream. Amplifying their intense performative experiences, Alter Moderna employs this technical and theatrical playground and toy chest; researching how to prolong their performances into a more lengthy performance ‘show’; and developing a precursor to their contribution to Riga Performance Art Festival and Deformes Biennial (Chili) in 2021.
Together with 20 fine-arts students from the Willem de Kooning academy and alumni from other art schools and disciplines, Jessica and Monique van Deursen will explore many different facets of performance art. The result will be an two hour long performance opera, which the audience can walk into. Filled with snippets of visions of a possible future for mankind, (laid bare by this next generation of artist); uploadable consciousness, ethereal voices, humming sonic fields, crudely confusing meditations and shifting shapes in space, will appear and dissolve throughout this two our long experience.
Participating students are: Carla Arcos – Dafni Arvaniti – Jesse Blaauw – Alara Bora – Mateja Drev – Jasper van den Ende – Tim van der Geest – Sam Janssen – Bas van der Kruk – Chaelim Kwon – Mayu Morishita – Jabe Oost – Lisette van Oostveen – Isabelle Rooij – Donatas Tretjakovas & Berendine Venemans
Martin de Korte and Martin Roedolf a.k.a. Cell Performance Art, will dress the occasion with their live-composed soundscapes. With many thanks for this production to Karin Arink and Lizan Freijsen of the WDKA.
