Shelter 209

The opening night of the festival moves from a different artist and gathering and different conceptions of performance art.
As a continuation of the world view of the festival, the artists and artists participating in this evening are performing an action that is built specifically for the present time, the specific place, the meeting, the presence - which is the artistic spirit that accompanies the festival from the beginning.Ar

0:8 Performance Conference – Autonomy by The School of Visual Theater and Hazira’s Rite of Autumn will open with fascinating debuts in the mysterious spaces of Hansen House.

MAKE-BELIEVE / Adi Kahana

Opening Event: Twilight

Make-Believe is a performative installation that invites you to a life changing experience through an encounter with one of three divine characters. Through this meeting, addressing our relationship between reality and illusion and how belief ties them together.

The piece is inspired by fairy tales, myths and superstitions borrowed from numerous traditions and cultures. These elements, weaving together a solid foundation for turning dreams to reality.

Avigdor / Uri Shafir

Opening Event: Twilights

Avigdor is an event, a place, a practice, a performance. 

Avigdor explores what "being a body" means - by returning to it, or perhaps moving towards it.

Avigdor is an attempt to create a space for being and postponing - a space to observe what a body does.

Avigdor is about persistence on in-between-ness, where we can stall the moment where the body becomes a stable thing, and rather stay in an ongoing becoming - while being concrete yet fictitious, full of will yet full of doubt, being "simply a body", yet celebrating its conflicts, representations, and oppositions. 

 

Masada / Galia Einey and Daniel Gamlieli

Opening Event: Twilight

I saw my first audiovisual show at Masada in the 1990s.
David Broza also sang  Mitachat Lashamaim at sunrise.

A lot of water evaporated from the Dead Sea since then.
We consume a feed that offers security and everlasting abundance, and we hug each other with a phone in our hands.

Indoors, the air-condition is on; outside, the world is burning up.
It is still hard to imagine there is something more important than I am.

There is a voice that says, “Act!” and another voice that says, “Later.”
Guilt is unecological.

IF MY HAND TALKED / Natalia Gomez and 1st Year SVT Students

Opening Event: Twilight

Every year, as tradition has it, the conference invites an artist to lead a day-long workshop for first year students at the School. As the day ends, and with the workshop completed, the students  exhibit  their work to the public. The activity seeks, to an even impossible extent, to close the gap between work in the studio and the moment of encounter with the public. This drawing-near gives rise to material that is exposed in its final stages, original and quivering, and is a kind of ritual of apprenticeship for the first year.

Natalia Gomez, who lives and works in Mexico, is a graduate of the School of Visual Theatre. The workshop/performance she will lead is one in a series of activities to be held within the framework of The Gathering

 

My hands salute.

My hands touch, my hands take, my hands make: 

Hands that saw, hands that cook, hands that build, brake, kill and talk. 

My hands push, my hands can hug, my hands can squeeze, my hands will shake.

A hand as a mirror,

my hands are small. 

Hands as walls, hands as pillows, hands as books, hands as snakes, hands as lens, hands as dildos, hands are digging a hole on a sunny beach.

I use hands as containers,

my hand contains.

My hand can touch my knee, my hands can stand as feet, my hand can hear my pulse. My hand now pointing you.

Come

Come

My hand says come

Que se vayan todos! [All of them must go!] / Mamuta Art and Research Center

Exhibition

“Que se vayan todos!” is a series of art interventions and an exhibition evoking and paying homage to the Argentinian civilian protests of late 2001, in which tens of thousands took to the streets across Argentina to protest the political, economic, and social situation in the country, resulting in changing the regime. The demonstrations came to a head in December 2001, prompting President Fernando de la Rúa to resign and flee in his helicopter from the “Pink House” (the President’s office), across from which the protests were taking place. The spontaneous mobilizations, which gave voice and strength to the citizens, had striking aesthetic, textual, visual, and acoustic manifestations. These aspects are the starting point of the exhibit.

The exhibition includes:

A sound installation tribute to the cacerolazo (a collaboration between Sala-Manca and Amir Bolzman and Ariel Armoni); a reconstruction of the cardboard helicopter displayed at a demonstration in Argentina in 2017 by the artist-activist group “Erroristas" which he establishment interpreted it as an unequivocal call for toppling the regime (the reproduction is a collaboration between Sala-Manca with Yeshayahu Rabinowitz); a room dedicated to the Portuguese-Argentinian artist João Delgado, who aspired in his works to bring about change through poetry and a variety of artistic projects; study room with documentation of the Caceralozo with Las Piratas Piratas on September 7th 2019.

Thorns / Itamar Banai

Thorns - A Small Ceremony

A short, intimate

nightly encounter

In the forest I got lost in

Reenacting

a short, intimate

nightly encounter

I had in the forest

With three witches

that performed a short

intimate nightly ritual

with me

Showing me

who I can become

If I only open my heart

and give in

to a short

intimate

nightly encounter

such as this

The importance of knowing how to do useless things / Natalia Gomez

Twilight Performances in Hansen House

Doing something useless is (and will be) something that we’ll always try to avoid. Thus, inviting you to a show where someone does “useless things” for 30 minutes might sound nuts. However (and if you wish so), witness Natalia convince you of how important this useless things are. By the end of the presentation you will be able to identify and (best case scenario) perform your own useless things. And only then you will understand how necessary they turn out to be.
