'The still point of the turning world', ceramic 2011 Moving in Space, Making a Space; Butoh and Ceramics in Conversation. Explore, examine and exploit the nature and materiality of space, both internal and external; real and imagined, physical and visual through a movement and making
workshop that integrates butoh exercises and simple clay form manipulation.

An interdisciplinary approach is used as a research tool to provide a dual perspective and understanding of the physicality of space, which can then be applied to personal and professional practice in a multitude of fields.

This workshop will be led by Butoh artist Ambra Bergamasco and Ceramic artist Kathleen Moroney. No prior experience is needed.

Kathleen Moroney lectures on the BA programme at IADT and is

External Assessor of Fine Art Ceramics at GMIT (2010-2016). She has a Research Masters in Ceramics from LIT and is currently working on a Practice-led PhD at the University of Sunderland, UK. Kathleen has been awarded residencies in New York, Minnesota, Japan, China and Denmark. While in New York City she worked in museum education (2000-2005) for the Guggenheim, MoMA PS1, and the Isamu Noguchi Museum, where a curiousity for the use of ‘space’ and ‘composition’ was ignited; now integral components of her practice. Kathkathleen Moroney 'anchored'. Porcelain, white nylon string, restored 100 year old wooden cart wheel.2011 copyleen’s research focuses on the intersection of a ‘measured’, process based material world of craft and the transcient, immediate nature of contemporary dance, in particular Butoh exercises, to explore the delineation of ‘movement in time’ and the traces of motion inherent in stillness. Her methodology merges a cognitive and physical/embodied approach to the understanding, processing and translation of concept.

The narrative undercurrent of Kathleen’s work has found form in site-specific and collaborative projects, public art commissions and gallery installations.

A partire dal 3 luglio 2016 la III edizione del Moving Bodies Festival sarà al Teatro Espace di Torino, con la curatela di Ambra G. Bergamasco e Edegar Starke. Quest’anno il Festival ruoterà intorno al termine DIFFERENZA; in un momento storico in cui la diversità e l’alterità stanno creando grandi tensioni in Europa e nel mondo i curatori hanno sentito l’esigenza di un’approfondita analisi e presa di posizione a riguardo: “la differenza mette in discussione la propriocezione e l’identità: l’esistenza in uno spazio tempo ed in relazione con l’altro definendo o modulandone i confini, offrendosi come terreno fertile di mutazioni e creazioni. Come possono questi sentimenti e approcci trovare vocabolari nella danza, performance, arte e ricerca accademica? Come mapparne le relazioni ed il loro nutrimento o il loro rifiuto?” Ambra G. Bergamasco ed Edegar Starke vivono la differenza non come negazione, ma come una prospettiva di arricchimento: imparare a non denigrare, creando nuove comunità della differenza e non l’innalzamento di muri è il loro fine.

I diversi temi, oggi più che mai attuali, come identità, razzismo, migrazione, salute mentale, genere e confini, diventano così i protagonisti degli spettacoli della III edizione del Moving Bodies Festival, che gli artisti affrontano, a loro volta, attraverso discipline e linguaggi eterogenei e diversi tra loro. Differenza diventa così omni mundo creativo per affermarsi nel reale. Il festival quest’anno diventa anche omaggio a Simone Sandretti, artista e presidente fondatore di Mad Pride Torino e Matti a Cottimo deceduto a Febbraio.

Quest’anno il Festival darà dunque spazio, oltre al Butoh e alla live art, a video-film d’arte, alle arti visive, para-cimena, alla performance art e alla ricerca e lo farà, oltre che con gli spettacoli, attraverso l’Open Call e l’offerta di tre residenze che si terranno al Teatro Espace e la prima Summer Intensive Practice che durerà dal 3 al 22 luglio con i maestri del Butoh Masaki Iwana, Minako Seki, Ken Mai, e tre giovani leve Yuri Dini (Italia), Ambra G. Bergamasco(Irlanda) e Edegar Starke (Brasile).

Moving Bodies Festival 2016 “Difference”

Moving Bodies Festival in collaboration with the Embassy of Japan in Ireland is delighted to present “Difference – Own your Difference”:

Difference challenges the idea of self, proprioception and boundaries. Identity and “self” develop in function of the other, through acceptance – rejection – cooperation/conflict and existence. How do these find a vocabulary in dance performance and art? How do different forms of doing come together pollinating and rejecting each other?

We, Ambra G. Bergamasco and Edegar Starke understand difference not from a negation, but from an affirmation. Learn rather than deny, create a community rather than building walls. Ultimately, we suggest difference as a singular that becomes plurality of such.
Philosophically, Difference has been researched and questioned through approaches that look at paradigms of creation, genesis, real, experience, virtual, negation, affirmation. There is a contemporary urge to address Difference; from our individual everyday actions to wider understanding of what today’s reality is; in our own artistic practice and in the space of contamination and relation with others. The festival is also a homage to the sudden death of great Artist and President of Mad Pride, Simone Sandretti, from Torino (Italy).

“Kaleidoscope-ing” from intimacy to archetypical and the universal, the artists of this festival’s edition, investigate issues regarding mental health, teenage pregnancy, ageing and the body, healing, poetic landscapes, rituals, solitude and poetry, through para-cinema, visual arts, performance art and Butoh.

Art Environment Performance Butoh Cafe

This Saturday, 9th of April, from 7pm to 9pm, Mart Gallery, Rathmines

We are delighted to have Katrin Neue and her extensive experience in dance and movement – from ballet to contemporary, Butoh and somatic movement – as our guest for this Butoh Cafe!

Katrin Neue
Katrin Neue holds a degree in Dance Education and a Master of Arts in Dance Performance. She taught dance to children and adults until moving to Ireland in 2009, where she completed her MA with first class honours. After that she had the opportunity to qualify as a Pilates Instructor, both for Mat work and equipment under teachers from Ireland and internationally.

Since studying dance, she was interested in somatic practices and internal awareness, first from a performance perspective (her love for Butoh let her found and direct the Butoh Festival Dublin in 2012), then increasingly to regain and refine functional and natural movements in her classes. She trained to become a Somatic Exercise Coach under Martha Peterson in 2014, after giving birth to her son Fionn a few months earlier. All of a sudden, past injuries and resulting difficulties in her dance practice made sense. Katrin is a firm believer in the importance of bodily autonomy and sees Somatic Movement as the prime teaching to achieve it. Because of this, since February 2015, she is training to become a Clinical Somatic Educator in the tradition of Thomas Hanna, under the direction of Martha Peterson (Essential Somatics).

www.somadublin.com

Throughout the session, we will explore contemporary dance Somatic Movement and Butoh.
We will be looking at areas of cross-pollination, movement styles and origin of movement during the workshop and enjoy a short performance and enjoy a light refreshment.

Edegar Starke & Ambra G. Bergamasco

OPEN CALL – MOVING BODIES FESTIVAL DUBLIN, IRELAND Performers, Butoh, Visual Artists and Researchers Deadline 10th of April 2016

OPEN CALL – 24th -25th June 2016

MOVING BODIES FESTIVAL DUBLIN, IRELAND

Mart Gallery, Rathmines, Dublin

Performers, Butoh, Visual Artists and Researchers

Deadline 10th of April 2016

 

2016 “Difference – Own your Difference”

The festival is dedicated – an homage – to the sudden death of Simone Sandretti, President and founder of Mad Pride Torino and artist. Sandretti devoted his life and art to the concept of self-expression deeming that a fundamental state of being and the purest of all possibilities of existence. He encouraged all those that crossed his path to become a listening and seeing body uncompromised by normality, which he understood a veil in need of ripping. He created the Union of Mad, defending the right of citizenship for those that are categorised as MAD. Simone Sandretti’s art was in name of the principle of be you – own your difference. For this purpose, the festival’s theme ‘difference’ fits purpose.

 

For us, Ambra G. Bergamasco and Edegar Starke, curators of Moving Bodies Festival, “Difference” stems from the work undertook throughout 2015 and 2016: gender, identity, racism, borders, conflict and collaboration.

Difference challenges the idea of self, proprioception and boundaries. Identity and “self” develop in function of the other, through acceptance – rejection – cooperation/conflict and existence. How do these find a vocabulary in dance performance and art? How do different forms of doing come together pollinating and rejecting each other? We, Ambra G. Bergamasco and Edegar Starke understand difference not from a negation, but from an affirmation. Learn rather than deny, create a community rather than building walls. Ultimately, we suggest difference as a singular that becomes plurality of such.

 

Philosophically, Difference has been researched and questioned through approaches that look at paradigms of creation, genesis, real, experience, virtual, negation, affirmation. There is a contemporary urge to address Difference; from our individual everyday actions to wider understanding of what today’s reality is; in our own artistic practice and in the space of contamination and relation with others.

 

Application for performers, Butoh, visual artists and researchers

 

We are seeking expression of interest for performing and visual artists that want to engage or have previously developed and performed work on the concept of Difference.

By this we mean:

– work produced by inclusion of different practices from one’s own;

– engagement with the philosophical concept of Difference found in the work of Gilles Deleuze;

– art and health;

-video art and dance performance
