The Warp | Multimedia performances at the Kunstkapel
The Warp brings shape shifting immersive performances in the unique 360 degree curved space of the original Sint NicolaasKapel on the edge of the Beatrixpark behind the RAI. The Warp will present works uniquely created or redesigned for this dynamic space, in order to continue its researches into a new proposed genre of work: the AudioVisualSpatial, in which each of these aspects has equal significance in any given project.
Each weekend will provide a completely different program that will emphasize the broad spectrum of work that falls under the rubric of AudioVisualSpatial. Work that straddles the worlds of art, light, sound, music, dance, drama, architecture and literature will be found, as well as some projects which might defy category altogether.
Tickets (sold by cash at door): € 10,00 – Students € 5,00
Reservations can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org
On June 9, three collectives will perform works dealing with the manufacturing of urgency and memories of '68.
The Paraneural Record performs 'The May Haunts'
A series of live projections conjure up a series of strange occurences which remind us of the histories that never happened, the things that never occurred, the whole other realm of the possible that never was. Paraneural Record performances always choose to concentrate on the powerful presence of that which did not occur and the truly horrifying sense of May is precisely in what May never be. The Paraneural Record utilizes live media feeds, gatherings of sonic and visual actualities as well as unusual gambits to temporarily hold the space.
The Fifth Estate performs 'On the Passage of a Few Persons Through a Rather Brief Period of Time by Guy Debord'
The Fifth Estate is certainly unorthodox as a producxer of theatrical works yet the group is performing a series of scripted works in Amsterdam in May and June which might be considered sources for the events of May. Certainly situationist chieftian Guy Debord, who stayed out of the action of May, played a major role in the early orientation of revolt. This text, drawn from a film, was written almost a decade prior to the events of May and yet it speaks powerfully for that generation. The Fifth Generaton considers this performancce a part of its sequence Tracks from Our Basement Tape. The Fifth Estate place a special spin on the Debordtext as they consider how to reasonably remake this script today.
The Shark Infested Custard performs 'Under the Paving Stones is the Beach'
An opera lost in the dust bins of time is exhumed and given an entemporaneous run through complete with adjustments and changes of plan. Under the Paving Stones culls together the graffiti and leaflets of the May streets of Paris and boils these remnants into an amalgam at once brutal as well as romantic. The Shark Infested Custard is an ensemble performing with invented and found instruments that is always on the look out for exceptional trash to transform into something that still has a serious bite.
