Fanclub in collaboration with Vontrapp showing ARKEN during HAUT’s choreographic festival – Y Choreography
October 27th at 2-2.45pm, HAUT c/o Sort/Hvid, Staldgade 26-30 in Copenhagen
The Ark is an investigation and re-actualization of the deluge myths. Unfolding as a choreographic installation, where the dancers’ collective Fanclub integrate and dance with different fragments from what might be a postmodern Ark. As mankind, the audience must engage if they are to safe themselves from the tidal wave to come. The audience can no longer look at themselves as mere spectators, but must engage in the work, so they end up with the concrete physical responsibility for the maintenance of the Ark of our time.
Vontrapp develops universes with a significant visual and musical expression. The Ark is their first work created for a black box, as they usually work site specific.
Through the Bastard blog you can now read about and take part of our performance WOWOWOW – re-discovering, re-entering or maybe encounter it for the first time.
Words by Naja Lee Jensen (interdisciplinary artist) and Joe Barker (phd in philosophy).
As a smaller dance production in Denmark it can be rather difficult to get a qualitative critique published – or just any press coverage at all really – so this time we decided to take it in our own hands. We invited two independant writers to share their experience and thoughts of the performance, which premiered at Dansehallerne c/o Koncertkirken in Copenhagen, March 2019. The result is two very different, vivid and interesting texts.
The important ting for us is not the critique per se, but rather the exchange of experiences, understandings and ideas connected to the performance. How do YOU read the performance, and YOU, and YOU? This exchange is crucial for us in order to understand the work in new or other ways, to dig deeper into the material and to keep on developing our performance. The beautiful thing with live art is just that – that it is alive and for ever evolving, tumbling, twisting and turning…
Thank you Bastard blog for the space and to Naja and Joe for your time and generosity.
Now – enjoy the read!
Naja Lee Jensen – “At se en forestilling flere gange er et privilegium. Særligt en forestilling som WOWOWOW, hvis fokus på kollektivet efter andet gennemsyn giver mig mulighed for at reflektere over min egen forestilling om, hvad et kollektiv i og udenfor scenerummet er.”
Joe Barker – “WOWOWOW, a new piece by Fanclub and Quim Bigas, attempts to work through, in real time, Jerome Bel’s idea of liberating dance from choreography. However, what we have here is not the liberation of individuals and their all-too-personal feelings. Instead, there is a much more difficult liberation: the liberation of collective movements, passing between bodies without conceptual control or domination.”
Fanclub has been invited to be part of Choreography in Action, hosted by Dansehallerne at Kunsthall Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, 30 Oct 2017 at 7-9pm
What vocabulary belongs to the dancer and how can she as a figure make us think, move, act..? During a two year long, disseminated process called We Are Dancers, Fanclub has collected a wide range of materials related to the figure of the dancer – applying these in artistic and non-artistic situations with the desire to explore other grounds and potentialities. At Charlottenborg Fanclub will perform a self-interview based on the materials and methods from this process, where the dancer, the collective and structures of work and everyday life will be central.
Hope to see you there!
