description
A festival by Uncut Rietveld with performances, lectures and an exhibition at art centre Brakke Grond, Amsterdam, The Netherlands guest curated by Claire Tancons (New Orleans), David Weber-Krebs (Brussels), Joanna Warsza (Berlin) and Claire Bishop (New York). Friday 20th of March 2015 runs under the title On Enclosed Spaces and Great Outdoors which was curated by David Weber-Krebs with following objective: Usually people who step into a theatre are of two kinds: the spectators and the actors. The spectators watch the actors. Both usually are humans. This happens usually in the enclosed space of theatre. In its symbolics, its economy and its practice, theatre is the place where the human stands central with his body and his words. But what kind of spectatorship applies when challenged by an encounter with a thing, a creature, a flow, fiction, darkness? Is it at all possible to abandon anthropocentrism in this game? During this day we are going to focus on the non-human in theatre and outside of it, on stages, on screens and in the great outdoors.The spectators will be addressed and moved in different ways by performances in and outside the theatre, by lectures and by a cosmic event. Nikolaus Gansterer will perform a series of Translectures in relation to work presented that day by André Lepecki, Mette Ingvartsen, Jeroen Peeters, Maximilian Haas, David Weber-Krebs, André Eiermann, Andrea Bozic at Brakke Grond, Amsterdam.
