Activism Versus Performance

TALK


Karolina Micuła, Poland

 

For Karolina Micuła, the individual journey to find her voice became a developmental journey, a path towards her own identity, not only artistic, but also social and political. It started with activism. Her relation to art was always a mixture of theory and practice, accompanied by difficulties and doubts. Dreams were mixed with a backup plan for life. Activism and the street woke her as an artist, understanding the political meaning of art and our duty towards society. Karolina Micuła wants to share her story and her voice.

La nieta (The Grand-daughter)

READING

Amaranta Osorio, Colombia/Spain

Author: Amaranta Osorio Video projections: Suzon Fuks

 

A woman loses her mother and must empty the house alone, in doing so she discovers things she didn’t know about her mother and reflects on her life, on the patterns she repeats and on new possibilities. The Grand-daughter is a self-fiction that talks about mourning, asking: what should we do with the past that is still present in our bodies? What should we do with the memory of our ancestors, that is framed in a pandemic context, where machismo is present? The Grand-daughter is based on personal experiences that Amaranta Osorio has fictionalised after losing her mother suddenly. This play is a tribute to her mother. The play highlights the importance of other women, because as monarch butterflies rely on the wings of the ones who did not finish the journey, women can rely on the stories of their mothers and teachers, to go further.

Las hijas del viento (The Daughters of the Wind)

Silvia Moreno, Spain/France

Performer: Silvia Moreno Vicente Director: Jill Greenhalgh 
Dramaturgy: Silvia Moreno Vicente, Jill Greenhalgh - Production: Cie CaVaLuna (France) Duration: 60 min. - Performed in Spanish

I was not born in a place, but in a story.
We all come from a story told to us, 
we are told and told...
And so, we build on each other.

I was not born in a place, I come from this story...

 

A performance that traces the lives of several generations of women (mothers and daughters) from the same family. Mothers who have lost children, daughters who have lost their mothers... Women who have migrated, lived war, dictatorship, fought poverty, cohabited with death... What legacy did they leave to their daughters? Are the women in our family stuck in fear and anger? Or have they armed their daughters for happiness?

White is the Night

Ana Woolf, Argentina

Actor: Ana Woolf

Dramaturgy and director: Julia Varley
Lighting Design: Fausto Pro - Text: Ana Woolf, extracts from a story by Clarisse Lispector and poems by Alda Merini and Hilda Hilst - Music: Heitor Villa Lobos, Marianne Suner, Éléonore Bovon - Technical assistance: Giorgio Zamboni 

Duration: 60 min. - Performed in English

 

I am in the dark, until the moon shines 
and the night is white.

“I cannot speak. I don’t find the words. They say that the problem is in the amygdala, that the amygdala are closed from fear. But I don’t know. My body is hurting me; my soul is hurting me. It is as if the water inside an immense globe pushes the walls, threatens to explode but never does. So I stay here, immobile, silent, deafened; suffocated by the saliva of my own words, which do not dare to leave my mouth. Stunned by the noise of my own silence. They say I have little birds in my mind.”

When something hurts so much we cannot speak about it, we desperately search for an escape. To set the ‘birds’ captured in our heads free, some people write poems, others attempt suicide, and others, create theatre performances.

Song / Jeux

Voix Polyphoniques, France



 

Singers of La Belle Équipe: Brigitte Cirla, Mireille Mammini, Brigitte Maurin, Anne Lise Lionnet, Graziella Végis

Director: Brigitte Cirla

 

Song/Jeux is a performance to discover learned music without taking oneself seriously: singing, dreaming while playing, playing dreaming while singing.

With malicious complicity, five singers offer a cappella pieces, sometimes humorous, other times serious and nostalgic. As in a dream, they invite composers and poets to tell us about their lives, their dreams, their rivalries. They have fun singing, drawing music, inventing the soundtrack for a comic strip, creating a score for toys, and ”slamming” a love poem. Always in search of discoveries, five voices slip into the unpublished writings of 20th and 21st century composers: G. Ligeti tells us about his beginnings as a composer, S. Komitas makes K. Berbérian dance, M. Seiber and E. Lear bicker, L. Ginoux meets A. Chédid, Aguiar discovers V. Paranjoti … They are all there before our eyes and tell us a little about their history and their music.
