Contemporary Performance Network is publishing a book called Contemporary Performance Almanac 2013! It will be a compendium of contemporary performance presented during the 2012/2013 season that is available for touring. This is a network funded book (crowdfunded from our network of 4700 artists from 81 countries). The book will be published in January and mailed to international presenters who are looking to invite touring work. So often presenters do not have access to the work of artists that are outside the touring circuit. Contemporary Performance sees a need to give access to both artists and presenters to find each other and start new working relationships. We need 100 artists and or companies to join to be able to produce the book. It will be about 120 page perfect bound book with each artist receiving a full page image and a full page listing that includes:

  • Artist/Company Name
  • Work Title
  • Description
  • Artist Statement
  • Production History
  • Contact information.

Fill out the form after the link if you are interested and we will contact you when we have reached our goal. Each artist company will pitch in US$50 to help publish the book. 

Here is the link to fill out the form.

An Kaler's "Insignificant Others" on stage

© Eva Würdinger

An Kaler will be presenting Insignificant Others (learning to look sideways) on 16th of October 2013 at RMNSC Krakow and on 22nd of October 2013 at STUK Leuven.

What are ways of distributing, or partitioning, or fragmenting presence when being together?

Insignificant Others examines the Tableaux as a shifting structure that diplays the process of the performers co-operating in modes of conducting, structuring and shifting a shared topography of physical presence and absence in fragmented cycles of movements.

The performers are as spectres and carriers of ambiguous images, still and fluctuating. A series of discontinuous but interconnected still postures that make images and situations between the performers but never quite build a shared narrative. Rather than a dramaturgy of determination, the artists are simultaneously working alone together as if in a field of energy that needs careful management, redistribution and direction, here they are making a dance out of the reabsorption of this energy field into the bodies of the empty space, themselves and the perception of audience. Harboured in that which is deemed unaffirmative pure potential is what is performed.

Cofestival banner slider

The second part of CoFestival will take place between 21 and 27 September 2013. This second round of the festival organized by Kino Šiška Ljubljana will be launched by the 3D film PINA by the German cineaste Wim Wenders, a sensitive homage to the unforgettable dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch. The film will be followed by the already traditional FičoDrom, intended for everybody who misses opportunities to dance.

Programme highlights include the first public presentation of Jurij Konjar’s piece Still (23 Sep at 9pm, Kino Šiška), the show Au contraire (based on Jean-Luc Godard) by the prize-winning Geneva-based artist Foofwa d’Imobilité (24 Sep at 9pm, Stara mestna Elektrarna), The Seagull directed by Tomi Janežič and produced by Novi Sad Serbian National Theatre (25 Sep and 26 Sep at 6pm, Kino Šiška). All shows will be followed by artist talks.

The Festival also promises the Vertigo dance workshop run by Eduardo Torroja, a member of the renowned Belgian group Ultima Vez, a research-art project of the Frankfurt-based dancer and choreographer Lili Mihajlović, and visiting artist Antje Pfundtner.

During the festival, the daily programme will be complemented by the festival team joined by many international artists having a go at The Art of Co-Living, a programme running in the Museum of Contemporary Arts as part of the Triennial of Contemporary Art.

Modul-dance festival at Hellerau

Hellerau festival 2013

This is the second time that HELLERAU-European Center for the Arts will be putting on show the signature styles of up-and-coming European choreographers. The festival will be presenting both finished works and some which are still being created, with lectures, workshops and a wide range of films rounding off the programme.


The modul-dance projects programmed are:

Marcos Morau/La Veronal, Siena. 13/9/13 - 14/9/13

A woman looks at a Titian painting. A man stands at the door watching the woman look at the paiting. Who sees whom? What is art and how do we look at art? Siena investigates the constant human need for self-observation.

Agata Maszkiewicz, Duel. Work-in-progress showing. 13/9/13 - 14/9/13

Imagine a world in which every conflict is resolved as a duel; every argument is a matter of life and death; every presidential candidate puts their life at risk. In Duel, two dancers face one another and act out a series of confrontations.

Marie-Caroline Hominal, Froufrou. Work-in-progress showing. 19/9/13

The works of Marie-Caroline Hominal revolve around ideas of identity, transformation and anonymity. Her new project Froufrou investigates multiple identities and the question of how these identities are revealed and passed from one person to another.

Patricia Apergi/Aerites Dance Company, Planites. 20/9/13 - 21/9/13

The collective mind and body of the city provides the raw materials for the this work. Here, these elements have been re-evaluated so that the concept of wandering aimlessly in the streets (drifting) also applies to strangers, immigrants, people who travel for pleasure or because they have no other choice. This is a very physical dance, full of emotion.

The modul-dance artists Antje Pfundtner and Marie-Caroline Hominal will be also performing Tim Acy and BAT. The programme also includes two days of ShortDanceFilms sessions curated by Núria Font-NU2's.

About "Analogic Drowning"

Analogic Drowning is a constant attempt of a resuscitative process of bringing back to life a stored and videotaped memory. It is an experimental video art where the original material is used both as an inspiration and final object itself, an intersection of both analogic and digital procedures that carry a sum of errors from the process and convert them into the core of this piece.

While the basic elements of the first action dated from 2003 are still present, they are residual within a 10 year working-in-progress experience approaching video as an artistic medium.

As any other being on the earth we strive to survive, we constantly regenerate from residual primary and basic instincts. We keep trying to have our heads above the water because that’s one of the only things that we can control between life and dead. We keep playing “rewind” in order to move “forward” while we “play”.
