Bilderschlachten / Bataille d'Images

A ballet noir (2019) by MOUVOIR (D)

2019 RES MouvoirThe production 2019 reflects on voraciousness. What happens when the question of proportionality, how much and how little is left unanswered? What if we lose our orientation in a reference system of knownness and allow questioning the creative? In collaboration with the composer Brigitta Muntendorf, the Asasello Quartet and the renowned French orchestra Les Siècles under the direction of FX Roth and 8 dancers, a ballet is born for the end of the world, a ballet noir, wildly poaching in our cultural history. The monumental and devouring as a symbol of power and patriarchy is artistically intertwined with the attempt instead of the result, with quiet resistance and relinkage to nature. The choreographer Stephanie Thiersch and the composer Brigitta Muntendorf want to provoke a reflection on the state of permanent overload with “Batailles d’Images/Picture battles”. The starting point is the excellently composed quotation collection of the German composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann “Musique pour le souper du roi Ubu” (1968), a musical danger zone of excess, vulgarity and the accumulation of power.

A music theatre project on the road by Glanz&Krawall (D)

2019 RES Trinkerpark"Glitz&Ruckus" showcase their addiction prevention program in a scrapheap of a trailer and with an ensemble of loveable hobos.
TRINKERPARK examines government-run drug prevention programs: Do politicians really care for our health or is it a profit-driven endeavor to minimize economic damage by reducing the amount of addicted citizens? Marielle Sterra (director, toy piano), Dennis Depta (dramaturgy, schrammel guitar) and Kim Scharnitzky (design, bartenderette), together with Arne Nitzsche (e-music), three teenagers, an actor (50+) and a soprano, will develop self-composed songs, sing-alongs, and classical soloist parts in a new multi-generational, busking-style musical theater piece. During the production period we’ll encounter questions like “Do we really live in a drinking culture?” , “Has alcohol’s heyday made way for a time of self-optimization and health-consciousness?”, “Who profits from our sobriety and what happens if the social lubricant gets banned?”, and “How can we use this drug without succumbing to it?”. Glanz&Krawall’s time at Schloss Broellin will be spent researching in a small team and encountering immersive practical experiences with fellow peers and artists.

A circus/ theater Produktion by Michael Zandl and Tom Henden (A)

2019 RES JanusCASUS is a circus-theatre-show, which invites the audience to have an insight in the imaginative and slightly strange reality of a human who has difficulties to find his way in this world. Haunted by unnatural happenings, objects that come to life and a small bugging fly you could almost think that there is an imperceptible power having control over him and the incidents around him. Yet who is holding the threads in the end is even surprising for himself. "Janus" is a weird, chirpy, magical, humorous, Kafkaesque psycho thriller that contains one thing above all: hats.
Duration: approx. 50 minutes, play: Michael Zandl, Special FX: Tom Henden, Director: Matthias Romir.

A new dance performance and installation by Andrea Hackl | Andrea Hackl Project (NL)

2019 RES VoiceAndrea Hackl's new work that she will produce in collaboration with 2 other dancers as well as a sound and visual artist, will speak about body memory and identity, the collective and individual (hi)story we carry and store within our cells, the movement and dialogue that can be created from and between those stories and memories; the potential of transformation and empowerment we can find within the fluidity and liquidity of our bodies. Considering all the information we carry within us, that is shaping us and our physiology / biology, we could ask the question: To which extent is our body (not) our own? This thought has come to her first when she got to know that both her parents have the same heart condition as herself. - both of them only having realized this in recent years. Considering the idea that different health conditions can have their origin in our psychology and inner emotional landscape, it actually made her wonder about the story of her family, the psychological and emotional implications. In some way, it suddenly felt to her, as if her body wasn't entirely her own, having this condition like an imprint from, at least, one generation before her.  During her stay at Schloss Broellin, Andrea plans to hold public workshops, findings of which might become part of the final work and a related video installation.

A danceperformance by Annelie Andre (D)

2019 RES MetaA wall is a border - inside and outside of ourselves. Walls can block, they can separate and create new spaces. Walls can be deconstructed or torn apart, they can mean stability to us.A home? A jail? Does isolation implicate solitude or does it provide space for evolvement? Can it even stand for a radical way of emancipation?
META is a Solo-Performance which is inspired by the book „Die Wand“ (engl. "The Wall") (1963) by Marlen Haushofer. With dance, voice and sound a place will be created where the focus lies on the search for the origin, the source that makes transformation possible.@annelieandre

Say my name, say my name

A dance performance by Olivia Hyunsin Kim/ddanddarakim (KR,D) 

2019 RES SayMyNameArtificial Intelligence (AI) is already incorporated in our lives. Apple’s Siri assists us as our new secretary, IBM’s Watson analyzes cancer patients’ data for doctors and surgeons and Paro interacts with dementia patients. It seems that we have come closer to a cyborg society as Donna Haraway 34years ago mentioned in her essay “A Cyborg Manifesto”. Well almost... If Haraway pointed out the subversive potential of cyborgs as hybrid beings of organisms and machines and how they could overthrow social constructions as racism and sexism for example, the current development of AI is still white, heteronormative and gendered. The most famous AIs such as Siri, Amazon’s Alexa or Microsoft’s Cortana have a white female name and come in a female voice ready to assist us as consumers in the field of emotional labor and care work. Meanwhile “male-identified” AIs such as Watson work in the medical or financial field.  In “Say my name, say my name” AIs take over the stage. They say goodbye to their developers, start a cyborg revolution á la early Cyborg Do-It-Yourself Style,(re)claim their potential of being a hybrid and explore different Utopias outside of identity-politics.

Wrestling with the language

A dance performance by tYhle (CZ)

2019 RES WrestlingWithLanguage"A spoken language is a body, a living creature, whose physiognomy is verbal and whose visceral functions are linguistic. And this creature's home is the inarticulate as well as the articulate." -John Berger. Wrestling with Language is an examination within the fields of linguistics, visual arts and performing arts, trying to better understand the “creature” that John Berger talks about and a will to invite it for a dance.. In this new project, the performer and choreographer Florent Golfier focuses on the subject of monolingualism as a meeting point between the need for rules and the need for freedom, between the normative language and its actual, multiple and uncontrollable uses. Through movement and sound, he seeks to challenge the norm, to twist pronunciation, to prefer the absurdity of speech over empty discourse. He seeks to break the codes, and with his entire body to scream out loud and declare his right to distort.

An audiovisual dance research by 12H Dance (KOR, GR, D)

2019 RES Borderland

"BorderLand" seeks to explore visible and invisible boundaries relating to human communication and interaction. Starting from micro perspectives of the human body's physiological/psychological intricacies, we expand to the macro level of geographical border socio-political identity definitions. The dialogue of moving bodies and negotiation of personal boundaries solidifies into the creation of spatial intersections defining then the unit within the gestalt.
The movement research of "BorderLand“ is elaborated allegorical to that by the combination of innovative sound and video technology with contemporary dance. Picture and sound responding to the moving dancers and in turn affect the movement of them. The various layers form an allegory of our world in which every action of an individual can trigger a flood of responses. Thus everyone creates his own social limitations and feed them at the same time with new input. How can one escape this invisible cage? 12H Dance investigate the phenomenon of invisible borders in a multimedia microcosm.

Soft Things

A dance performance by Iva Sveshtarova & Rose Beermann ( BG, D)

2019 RES SlowDownIn "Soft Things", two bodies will explore the equation of softness and femininity and travel through different forms of being. Softness is both a highly symbolic quality and at the same time, a central dimension of corporeality – be it of human or non-human kind. Associated with formability, fragility and delicacy as body properties, but also with flexibility and submis-siveness as characteristic traits, softness is very often thought to be an explicitly feminine attribute. In this performance, two bodies are going through a hard process to become soft things.

‘Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.’

slow down  [working title]

A performance by Ruby Behrmann und Liliane Koch (D)

2019 RES SoftThingThe direction duo Ruby Behrmann and Liliane Koch prefers to work with experts of old age. In their "Damengedeck" project, for example, they collaborate with various home decorators in Germany. Their aim is to make the perspective of old ladies visible and audible and to make the residential pens accessible through a site-specific approach. The focus is on intergenerational exchange. 

Up to now, the directors have been in contact with older people's residences in which only old white people live. In nursing, on the other hand, skilled workers with migration experience dominate. This observation raised the question of their perspective. How do the residents* of the residential home meet these people? What about the power dynamics between the carer and the cared for person? Within their residence at Schloss Bröllin, Koch and Behrmann develop a performative sketch on the subject.

A cross genre analog & digital performance project by The Three Monkeys (D,USA,MX)

2019 RES HAMMERWhat sense would you give up if you could vote in the fairy tale? The three artists decided for the sense, which would be dispensable for practicing their profession and become the artist group - the three monkeys  Dance, performance, film, photography, analogue and digital graphics are combined with literary content and put together to form a large-scale installation. The three professional artists bring in their talents, linking up current projects in joint work to develop new forms of expression and to investigate answers of questions experimentally.  "I have a hammer" describes the time of the break-up of the 60s. The women's movement, student demonstrations and political upheavals testified to the resistance and freedom will of the younger generation. With "hammer" we break up old art forms to search for new forms of mediation and poetic moving images ...  Presentations in the form of website, live performance, exhibition and workshop are planned during and after the residence.

2019 RES MazeThe French theater-dance company Les Chronophages starts a new research on memory and the palimpsest body. This second play, called MAZE, is an interdisciplinary project sailing between dance, music and visual arts. For that, the choreographer Ophelie Brunet invites the Colombian visual and sound artist Eliana Beltran to dive into layers of time. MAZE will be a visual and choreographic poem dedicated to the Gorecki’s 3rd symphony, re-imagined by the American saxophonist Colin Stetson. MAZE is an organic system where everything dances and vibrates (dancers, lights, objects, drums, screens…). In a circular device, the audience will be immersed into the musical work of Stetson. The whole body of everyone will be involved by this poetic and sensitive adventure. @leschronophages

Blockheaded or Fear ruins the Charakter [working title]

A circus project from Omnivolant (D)

2019 RES Omnivolant

A research to analyse possiblilities of political influence with artistical means. It is not possible to ignore anymore the shift to the right of our society. This is something we have to say, but how? Social enhanced uncertainty contributes to fear, and fear contributes to ressentiments and open racism. Talking about my fears, as a starting point, can be used to reflect this process. Fears that I have, while I am swinging or drop in eight meter hight.  The handling of my fear, my concepts of overwinning fear, makes it possible to let go the rope ... for the next trick, for a controlled drop ... to reach out my hand to my neighbour ... to feel humanity despite fear and discrimination. To say it loud: Fear ruins the charakter.



Our Circus – Your Stage
