Barcelona (10)


Public Domain does without the actor as the main aspect of the show and leaves the audience as the only participant. It is not about turning the spectator into an actor, but about fulfilling the narrative possibilities of the group using statistical tools. The spectators are part of a fiction without the need of exposing themselves as individuals on a stage that, on the other hand, has as many actors as spectators watching the show.

La Fábrica presents EUROPES, the first meeting in Barcelona to celebrate and explore contemporary European culture

Starting on 21 October, EUROPES is the new festival created by La Fábrica designed to showcase the latest cultural and artistic trends in Europe. Until 14 November it will make the city the epicentre for contemporary European creation.

EUROPES presents a wide range of contents in different areas, including plastic and visual arts, performing arts, music, film, literature, architecture, cuisine and design. The festival features a crosscutting programme that reveals the rich and complex cultural fabric throughout Europe today and which will shake up Barcelona’s cultural calendar with over 250 activities, including screenings, performances, talks, meetings, exhibitions and conferences.

For three weeks, this new city festival will turn Barcelona into a gateway to Europe. In order to reach the widest possible audience, EUROPES is working with the city’s leading cultural centres, including the TNC, MACBA, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Sala Beckett, Museu Picasso, Mercat de les Flors, L’Auditori, and CaixaFòrum, amongst others. They will be joined by 30 civic centres and 36 public city libraries, over 60 art galleries, and a large number of bookshops, art schools, universities and restaurants, among over 200 spaces.

Thanks to this consensus, the festival brings together the city’s many different cultural systems, both public and private. EUROPES aims to be a catalyst for talent that interconnects and reinforces networks, both locally and throughout Europe. This key aspect will ensure that Barcelona can present a wide-ranging programme that will throw the spotlight on the latest creative trends across Europe.

Among the hundreds of activities being held under the umbrella of EUROPES, on 10, 11 and 12 November there will be an unprecedented symposium bringing together the leading production centres in Europe. The 1st Europes Conference on European Production Centres and Platforms will be a three-day meeting designed to share, compare and contrast different lines of action at the top European creation centres, set out new ideas for the future and set up an exchange and communication network between centres to collaborate on short- and medium-term projects.

EUROPES has invited the twenty heads of the top twenty centres from twelve countries in Europe to come to Barcelona, including Alessio Antoniolli, director of Gasworks (United Kingdom), Gerfried Stocker, director and curator of Ars Electronica (Austria), Ludger Orlok, director of Tanzfabrik (Germany), Stine Hebert, new director of the Baltic Art Centre (Sweden), Chus Martínez, chief curator at Macba (Barcelona), and Pablo Berástegui, coordinator of Matadero (Madrid).

EUROPES activities are arranged in three major sections: the Official Programme, containing the bulk of the main activities, mostly linked to some of the city’s benchmark cultural spaces; the OFF Programme, made up of a generous programme of parallel activities to enrich the Official Programme; and WelcomeEUROPES, created by EUROPES with Barcelona training and education centres, including a range of exchange activities, a pilot bedsharing programme and a creation campus. Anyone interested in welcoming students from Europe can get more information on the EUROPES website:

Workshop at Harvestworks. September 2010

Alain Baumann has been using Max/MSP as his main tool to develop the creative works of
Kònic thtr, and working with dancers to interact both with sound and image in real time
on stage. As an important part of their activity, Kònic thtr is actively contributing to the
dissemination of their knowledge, both by teaching in different colleges in Catalonia and
Spain and by giving workshops in many countries of Europe and Central and South America,
workshops in which the emphasis is the development of creative languages based on
interactive technologies.
FTM is a set of Max externals developed at the IRCAM that eases the handling of complex
data structures in the max/MSP environment. This course, taught by KonicLab's Alain
Baumann (Barcelona), will specially focus on the MnM package included in the library, and
have hands-on experiments with included abstraction MnMfollower, which allow us to do
real time gesture following when used in combination with sensors, camera analysis, or a

Artist-in-residence program at 3-Legged Dog Art & Technology Center
a {d’Aigua} show_5 presentations. September - October 2010

In 2009, the center of performing arts and digital technologies 3 legged Dog invited Kònic
thtr to develop a residency at its center in New York. Kònic Thtr will take the opportunity to
develop a new phase of the show a {d'Aigua}, an existing project with a modular structure,
and elaborate a new format for the piece at 3LD,, an interactive dance installation involving
audience participation opens up to visual arts audiences and new circuits. This time the show
will stage dancer and performer Masu Fajardo.
Kònic Thtr/Koniclab hope to strengthen their research in non-linear and interactive
performing and choreographic narratives.

a {d'Aigua} is a project originally developed in the context of several labs made by Kònic Thtr.
As part of this process, we highlight the encounters with the Catalan choreographer Maria
Muñoz, from Mal_Pelo dance company, with the aim of developing a cross-experience work
that includes dance, performance, music, computer graphics and interactivity.

In the performative project a {d'Aigua}, a dancer, a performer and musician interact on
stage with sound and image using the iXKa, a small wireless sensor device integrated on the
body and designed to capture the movement and the dancers on stage in real time. These
devices are used in conjunction with a piece of software called MNM and developed by
Frédéric Bevilacqua from the Real-Time Music Interaction Team at IRCAM, Paris (France). The
combination of sensors and software allows us to record the gestures of the dancer and then
recognize it in real time. Whole phrases of movement are recognized and reproduced, and the
dancer can play sounds that are being recorded simultaneously with its movement.

This stage piece was first presented in openlab format, at Officine Sintetiche (Torino, Italy),
and was premiered in Barcelona at the Mercat de les Flors during the IDN Festival 2009, with
the participation of the dancer and choreographer María Muñoz.

Later, the piece continues to evolve through encounters with different dancers and
choreographers. It was presented at the Electron Festival (Switzerland), with dancer and
performer Masu Fajardo, and also at 'Certesa Simulada. New frontiers of science, art and
thought’, program organized by Ars Santa Mònica from Barcelona in September 2009.
In 2010, this show has been performed in the Theater of Madrid, for the event Cartographies
of Dance, in Theatre Moulay Rachid at the Festival International d'Art Vidéo of Casablanca
(Morocco) and at Thsekh_Proekt Fabrika in Moscow (Russia). There’s also a tour plan in the fall
2010 with presentations of the show int he III Seminário Transcultural sobre Teatro e Dança in
Salvador de Bahía (Brasil) and in the International Videodance Festival Cuerpo Digital in La Paz
