Live Stage: Longing For … [it Venice]

LONGING FOR … #Score 1: Experiences You Can Share, Bodies, Movement, Spaces — Curator: Charlotte Pöchhacker :: Premiere: August 26, 2010; 6:00 pm :: LONGING FOR … HETEROTOPIA OF SENSES :: August 28, 2010; 6:00 pm :: Arsenale Novissimo, Tesa 92, Venice, Italy.

There are 2 distinct kinds of movement: there is the traversed space, and the act by which the space is traversed. In one case a spatial order is established and in the other case, qualities within a temporal sequence are distinguished. — Henri Bergson

Longing For … is a hybrid performance-installation focusing on translatory movements of choreography and architecture. With respect to the investigative movement as a specific form of experience and construction of space, the experiment of translating and representing actual characteristics of architecture, i.e. spatial quality in conjunction with actions, and so in conjunction with time is carried out by the intercreative team Richard Siegal, choreographer/ dancer, Peter Welz, artist, Alexander Kada, designer, Julie Guibert, Camille Revol, Paula Sanchez and Alessio Silvestrin, dancers, Hubert Machnik, composer, Christine Peters, dramaturg and Jean-Philippe Lambert, interactivity programming.

The first score of Longing For… is analysing the mp09 building by GSarchitects researching possibilities to represent space-time structures, i.e. movement notations in architecture and bringing forward the question how choreography does approach this challenge.

Focusing on choreography as description and design of space Longing For… aims to bring representational conventions into dialogue with one another in order to make clear the complexity of interconnectedness and to demonstrate the tension within this media constellation. The form of choreographic notation serves to remind us that architecture is also about moving bodies in space and gives rise to the question how to integrate movement notations in architectural drawings and thus to expand its perception.

Longing For … further analyses the impact of dance on architecture considering dance as the art of space and as the model of an architecture searching against static concepts for new forms and structures that reflect the contemporary person’s attitude to life and questions dance as an expression of a spatial dynamic tension of forces and of a new feeling for movement.

According to the various requirements of performance and further developments in the Longing For … project, a special stage/exhibition setting will develop. Comparable to all of the points of movement that are components of a dancer’s body, the setting will feature an infinite number of movements and positions through series of “foldings and unfoldings”.
