The Duet of the Body and the City

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These photos are from the above named practical workshop, run by Beatrice Jarvis & Dr Bob Jarvis, exploring the city as stimulus and studio which was run as part of  UrbanPhotoFest.   Investigating how can the body become a reflective mechanism for the experience of the body in the city? How far can the city be shaped and moulded by the actions and reactions of the body?

The workshop explored how photography and choreography can be used as tools to map and interact with the activity of the city. Working from a series of choreographic scores; we explored 3 sites around Truman’s Brewery and formed a short series of interventions and spatial reflections forming a series of photographic works collaboratively and individually. The session brought together photographers, sociologists, choreographers, architects, town planners, artists, film makers and those with a keen interest for urban space investigation for a reflective, active and constructive series of actions and dialogs.  Urban space effectively became a live laboratory during this workshop to play, discover and create.

There were 10 participants on the course and we each had to submit 24 photos so 10 people | 10 stories | one route.  This is my submission – I am trying to move between observer and participant in the experience.  I wonder if it shows in the photos?

The city is choreography of life and it can be used as resource for artistic practice; it can form a productive and substantial input for the creative mind. The motifs of human form repeat on the streets, to be observed, interpreted, or simply left in their flux. Crescendos and diminuendos of the bustling street rise and fall with the breath of the city, a living organism, which one can walk upon, in, beside and amongst.

Walking Piece | Matthias Sperling

Choreographer Matthias Sperling is creating a new commission for Big Dance 2012. Walking Piece is an installation performance in which 50 people come together to form a single file loop that continuously circumnavigates Siobhan Davies Studios. Performers are taking part in the creative process along with the choreographer to develop the piece. Audience members will be invited to view the work by moving along, around and among the performers’ circular route, encountering not only different events mapped along the route, but also each performer’s individual response to those events. Based on walking, the work will set up a close interaction between performers and audience members. This series of images were taken at yesterday’s rehearsals held at Siobhan Davies Studios.  The event is happening at 12 noon on Sunday 15 July.

Title: Dave, Michael, Tracy, John, Sofie, Fred and the others – Bonnie Bird Theatre, Trinity Laban.
Choreography: Emma Zangs
Performers: Diina Bukareva, Danell Nelson, Marta Ucinska, Mariana Lucia Marquez, Natasha Cesco G., Runa Kaiser, Apostolos Gkoumas.

This dance piece is asking the question of: ‘What is an original piece?’.
Using previously created movements, the piece enhances the fact that creating a choreography does not start necessarily with the creation of movement but with the act of editing.  Beg, borrow or steal.

Choreography: Diina Bukareva
Performer: Runa Larsen
Lights: Gregor Knüppel

The memory is shared; it is not personal, neither objective. It is re-lived, not re-done. Perceptional recollection is not necessarily truthful. Everything can be imagined. If it is not true to me, it could still be true to you.
