Performance Matters, Performing Idea – Other Durations5th October 3:00-7:30pmToynbee StudiosWith: Janine Antoni, Matthew Goulish, Bojana Kunst, Boyan Manchev, Fred Moten and Lara ShalsonTime in Western Cultures continues to accelerate and a slower unregulated life is seemingly nowhere to be found. Contemporary art has seen a resurgence of performances of long and short durations and a re-valuation of historical works of duration. Artists are increasingly playing with, inhabiting and transforming the time of the artwork. Speakers will address questions of how we can now think of the time of performance? What are the relations between performance, time and cultural value? How is performance reconfiguring and othering our understandings and experiences of time?
Performance Matters Performing Idea Dialogues,Toynbee Studios 04.10.10:Choreographer Jonathan Burrows and writer and curator Adrian Heathfield have developed a dialogue around the relationship between writing and dancing. They were interested in exploring the creative tension between the distinctive affects of embodied actions and spoken words, investigating their different roles in the making and receiving of meaning. They were fascinated by those moments of intensity – unforgettable yet unspeakable – where something of life is disclosed between sense and sensibility. What are the relative weights of gestures and words in a performance space? How can each open to the other? What place does music occupy in a negotiation between muted movements and sonorous words? What might be some principles of composition for a generative relation between creative writing and choreography?
“Invited at the same time by the Hebbel Theatre in Berlin, the Tanz-Quartier in Vienna and the Centre National de la Danse in Paris to perform The Last Performance (D0624) I decided, instead of presenting the piece, to make a lecture about its issues. I had the feeling that this difficult piece had not been really understood. Maybe the piece was bad. But I believe that the issues of this piece were relevant, which is why I would like to change my medium and to use the tool of the lecture to try to articulate better the stakes of The Last Performance. I will re-contextualise the piece in its theoretical level through the texts of Roland Barthes and Peggy Phelan and in my artistic situation at that time.”Jérôme Bel www.jeromebel.fr This documentation has since been presented with the permission of the artist as part of the Performance Matters, Performing Idea, Performance Lecture Archive; an interactive video archive housed at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2-9 October 2010. The archive looked at examples of the performance lecture as a form of artistic and critical expression and its potential to address a broad range of cultural issues and philosophical ideas.
