The project of butoh-acousmatic festival/meeting “En chair et en son” allow to investigate new situations of creation up to then very little explored.
Place the dancer body at the heart of the apparatus of numeric sound projection “acousmonium”, to confront him with this music of imaginary, to the primitive pleasure of the sound perception, open new way of creation: the butoh dancer perceive, for the most part the exterior environment with his skin (he can be, even sometimes cover his eyes to be concentrated on this skin perception). From then on, the richness of the acousmatic sound environment interact with his body to open new ways of work and expression.
Butoh and acousmatic proceed from a same poïétic (the setting in motion of the bodies in space) from a same will of genre transgression, from a same desire of return to the essence of things (the flesh, the sound).
The first edition of the festival in 2015 showed the creative richness and the potential that such meeting contain. Read more…
OPEN CALL – 24th – 25th June 2016 MOVING BODIES FESTIVAL DUBLIN, IRELAND
Performers, Butoh, Visual Artists and Researchers
Deadline 1st of April 2016
2016 “Difference – Own your Difference”
The festival is dedicated – an homage – to the sudden death of Simone Sandretti, President and founder of Mad Pride Torino and artist. Sandretti devoted his life and art to the concept of self-expression deeming that a fundamental state of being and the purest of all possibilities of existence. He encouraged all those that crossed his path to become a listening and seeing body uncompromised by normality, which he understood a veil in need of ripping. He created the Union of Mad, defending the right of citizenship for those that are categorised as MAD. Simone Sandretti’s art was in name of the principle of be you – own your difference. For this purpose, the festival’s theme ‘difference’ fits purpose.
For us, Ambra G. Bergamasco and Edegar Starke, curators of Moving Bodies Festival, “Difference” stems also from the work undertook throughout 2015 and 2016: gender, identity, racism, borders, conflict and collaboration. Read more…
