SEASONING SPECIAL

on december 2 & 3 at Art House United-C.
8.30 PM / tickets info@united-c.nl
In this edition of Seasoning, the cowboys literally make place for the next generation.Young guests, from whom we think they will have a saying in the upcoming Art Field.
At Seasoning Special this first bunch shows what they are up to now. From tomorrow on we will introduce these artists; a.o. Vito Willems, Tamar Blom, Matthias Van Dromme, Hannah De Meyer, Yannick Jacquet

1. Vito Willems (sound artsist) - Glimpulse.

'Glimpulse' exposes the duality of focus. In this performance there is a state in which sensory impulses distracts shaping an unified image. Being aware of releasing these impulses a transformation into a focussed state appears. Without distraction an unity will be experienced and a much more controlled state of focus appears.

The performance takes place in a concentrated setting where audio, spatial and visual elements are fusing together into an unified whole. This 360˚ experience creates an immersed environment where time and space diffuses. Live-electronics and spatialization with reactive visual elements are combined to create this way of perception.

2. Hannah de Meijer

Levitations / Pilot I performance (only on dec 2nd)

Hannah De Meyer is fascinated by moments in which life and death nearly touch each other.
Death approaching intensifies several aspects of human life.
Our sorrows,
our despair,
our deep vulnerability,
our innocence,
and our desire to love someone and to show it.

In the spring of 2017 Hannah De Meyer will be making Levitations.
A performance for two actors and a dancer.
Pilot I is the first meeting between Hannah and dancer Kinga Jaczewska.
They will investigate correlations between movement and (projected) text.
The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying will loosely serve as an inspiration in their meeting.
Pilot I is created and shown at United Cowboys.

3. Matthias van Dromme - photograhy

Matthias is showing work from his series "WORK IN PROGRESS"
Nowadays, everyone has a photo camera in his pocket. As a photographer, you want more than just making a nice picture; you want to get to work with the medium. My search for a personal imagery is highly connected to the subject. I play with the illusion of outness, by manipulating reality and esthetics. A personal approach of the genre: telling about the other through yourself. The documentary series „WORK IN PROGRESS” takes the young, energetic theatre company Kuiperskaai as the subject. The road they go in the actual cultural landscape, in which they distinctively assert their voices.

4. Yannick Jaquet - music

Yannick started music with the cello at the age of 5. After many years of classical studies, he turned to jazz and now practice several instruments among which, piano, clarinet, guitar, double bass. He’s getting a bachelor's degree in piano and cello at Jazz Royal Conservatory of Brussels in 2016. Singing has always been for him the most powerful vehicle for transmitting emotion. He’s now devoting himself to a research of his vocal universe, composing pop/jazz songs.
He's also working on a new conception of singing with a cello as an accompaniment, using different modes of playing, in between written pieces, full improvisation, live compositions.

5. Tamar Blom - performance

In this week of residency at United-C Tamar starts his research for a new work. The work researches our (in)ability to desire, to love and to be intimate. In a consumerist society we have started to treat each other as consumables. Our relationships have become increasingly superficial and replaceable. In this context, how can we find love and intimacy. Or can't we? This first research consist of various short collaborations with other artists and colleagues whom have joined him during this proces: Isadora Tomasi, Pleun Van Dijk , Francesca Lazzeri, Hidde Aans-Verkade, Matteo Bifulco and Koen Bartijn. The final work will come out in the summer of 2017.

RETROSPECT SEASONING #9

Our guests of SEASONING # 9 that took place on March 17 & 18:

 

1. Evangelos Biskas V - dance solo impro

The Jazz Dog

This solo is an ongoing and never-ending research of how sound can influence, shape, color, almost manipulate, movement in one's body. Lately, I am discovering the history and the development of jazz music. A sentence that describes how I feel about it is the following; “Jazz music celebrates life, human life; its range, absurdity, ignorance, greatness, intelligence, sexuality and performativity and it deals with it.”
I am very fascinated to explore the unlimited musical choices when improvising with sound and use my body almost as a musical instrument with physicality being its language. My aim is to make links between those two improvisation vocabularies; jazz and movement improvisation.
I am discovering the automatic/unconscious body memory. Jazz musicians find logical ways, then they avoid them and let their inner selves break through and guide them. Like in jazz pieces, there is a structure which the body understands but it eventually gets lost in it by gaining an automatic motion in a subjective and personal way. Through this manner, deep emotional, physical and spiritual colors start to communicate and express one’s existence.

2. Milla Virtanen and Jaakko Toivonen - dance duet

BLACKPOOL- ‘Uncensored autobiographical’

People all over the world enjoy the social and competitive nature of ballroom dancing.
While many international TV formats have made ballroom dancing known to the big public, the actual events take place in more closed circles.

Choreographers Milla Virtanen and Jaakko Toivonen are former top ballroom dancers and both of them went to study contemporary dance in the Netherlands.
For this new performance they are going to return to their roots and explore how participation to competitive ballroom dancing influenced theirs and other lives.

Premiere of Blackpool will be 16th of June 2016 in Kuopio, Finland. In Eindhoven Milla and Jaakko will show work in progress versions of the piece.

4. Vito Willems - Music/sound "Impossible Interaction".

The performance has a cold and melancholic touch. This attempts to express that the border between emotion and technology covers an area of knowledge that we still have to investigate. Is technological emotion possible? There is a form of communication, but will it have the same mystical power as human interaction? The cold impact of this performance doubts and criticizes this possibility.

I used the leap-motion and a webcam for tracking my face expressions and gestures. With Max/MSP i linked the data of the movements to musical parameter. These parameters are effects l made like ring-modulators, delay and bit-crushers. The idea behind this performance is to present it in a live situation.


3. Lucie Petrusova and Marius Pohlmann - dance duet created by Pauline Roelants

The duet Eeuwig Idool premiered in January in Tilburg. For Seasonig we bring a special version.

quote review:
From that moment on, two forces are working; Roelants herself, follows the emotion she arouses with her music, searching, impatient, with an angry, provoking energy, that fails to focus and lacks direction. In the meantime, on the plith, an asthonishing other world is being told fully concentrated in a strong physical language , containing either dance and acrobatics. The intimicy gains power because of the contrast that Roelants applies. With the faces close to one another, the eyes aligned,, their hands find eachother faultlessly, she knows when she can hang, he knows where she wants to stand. Aound them, hell may break loose. It is another mans hell. (****Theaterkrant)

RETROSPECT SEASONING #8

On December 18 & 19 2015, Seasoning #8 took place at Art House United-C.

With a.o.: Danceperformance ARNHEMS Work/Jason Gwen, dance solo Samuel Feldhandler, musician MaximeRouquart with a Gost rocktrip, paintings by Frank van Ansem, singersongwriter Jane Who, spoeken word and music by Iris Penning, performance by Alexandra Brenmers, and Maarten van der Put made a performance with and for danxcer Florencia Martina.

1. VANsterdam - JASON GWEN/arnhems work - danceperformance

 

VANsterdam is a 45 min tripping performance on Jason’s experience of Vancouver’s nightlife in 2015, addressing the emancipation on leisure. Where marihuana consumption falls under medicinal usage, where the first and only sex club opened only a few years ago, and drinking alcohol is permitted on the streets. A look at the contrast on rules and regulations, and the emancipation that has been preceded in the 90’s in Amsterdam and Westen Europe.

 

Jason Gwen is a Dutch/Vietnamese performance and visual artist. With his hybrid art vessel ARNHEMS Work, Jason travels and creates various art works with local artists and organizations, about local subjects. Within the work he’s always in search of experiencing different realities, with the goal to share these experiences with the audience and to have a look together in people’s choices, which leads to a certain daily pattern, lifestyle and reality.

2. Maxime Rouquart - music

Ghost rock is a free form-rock trip. A Babylonian journey that takes the audience and performers in and out of trance,
where the sense & nonsense of worship dictate the logic of communication.
A ghastly intimate experience.

with: Maxime Rouquart (Kuiperskaai, Eraserhead BE), Vadim Rouquart (Eraserhead BE)

3. Alexandra Bremers - performance

Being the child of a Chinese mother and a Dutch father, Alexandra Bremers (1995) was raised with influences from both cultures. During the two days of Seasoning she will go back to her childhood to tell a personal story about nosebleeds, hot summers in Beijing and her grandmother's wisdom

 

4. Iris Penning / Mickey Wo from Wakkerlicht - music and spoken word-

"Wakkerlicht is a collective dat expresses itself in spoken-word, music and poetry. The six members from Belgium and Holland, empower their forses and are busy to work on their creation in theater At Seasoning Mickey Wo en Iris Penning will be there to set the tone for what is about to come.
-only on dec. 19th -

5. Samuel Feldhandler (FR) - dance solo

This solo is a result of my ongoing research on how to translate musical composition techniques in Dance. It is a sonata consisting of three parts: a sonata-form, a little ternary form, and a theme & variations.

In this choreography, I mainly focus on the use of motives, as derived from musical composition. A motive is the most basic material, or smallest common denominator for a piece. I use four motives which I consider as my basic motives, and from which all the elements of the work are derived via the use of repetition and variation.

Viewing composition as a mean to show one idea through different angles and circumstances, the basic motives represent the idea that is shown through different forms and structures. Each of those forms will treat the motives differently, giving a broader perspective on what those motives can be, and making them more meaningful as dance material.

5. Jan Who - singer songwriter

Jane Who is a singer/songwriter form Rotterdam, that started her education at Rock City in Eindhoven
She getst inspiration out of dayly life, especially the sad side. With influences of Ryan Adams, Glen Hansard and Regina Spektor she writes intimate songs straight from the hart.

In Maart 2016 she will release her EP “Songs for Robin” An initimte song about just one person: Robin. .

 

- only on december 18th -

6. Frank van Ansem - paintings

" Nature is not on the surface, but in depth; the colours on the surface are an expayssion of this depth, they rise from the roots of the world".

Paul Cezanne 1921

For Frank, painting is about touching., Sometimes rough, sometimes, subtile, but alwyas with emotion. Touching is not only about the surface, but also about meaning and content; what you touch, that content, is changeble in the work of Frank.

7. Maarten van der Put - Florencia Martina- performance

The performance series of Maarten van der Put (artistic team of United-C) is ongoing; already consisting of 15 performances about the body and about being.
With Florencia he worked for several week, to get a hold on her strength and vulnerability and create the outmost balance of humanity, beauty and surrender.

3. Wannes Vanwijnsberghe

Wannes Vanwijnsberghe(1992°) lives and works in Gent. In his studio he surrounds himself with his archive of images, grabbed from internet and out of magazines, combined with his own collection of animalprints.The start of his work happens without previous investigation; his first layers count as sketches that reveal to be more and more useful during the process
Fascinated by fauna and flora and by natural phenomena he creates paintings that play with depth and with the flat, by either giving meaning to an image or letting it slumber in a frog of questions. As painter, he focusses on the materiality of paint; using it in a volatile way or rather expose it to deeper analysis. The use of differences in scale is a regular approach, the transformation of objects into something really small and already forgotten to the spectator, or making a mountain out of a molehill. The oeuvre of Wannes has been placed under “Artificial Habitat”. Abstraction and figuration touch each other to strand in a peculiarly pictoriality.

2. Andrea Hackl - dance and video installation

Adrea Hackl, born in Austria, is based in The Netherlands & Austria and works as freelance choreographer, dancer and video artist. Hackl's work and artistic practice has been influenced by various artists such as Gabriella Maiorino, Emanuel Gat, Ime Essien, Anouk van Dijk, Tony Vezich as well as the work of writers and philosophers, e.g.: Stephen Nachmanovitch & John Dewey. Her understanding of dance & movement has been enriched by various methods of energetic & somatic work, e.g.: Yoga & Continuum Movement.

She will perfrom her new solo (in progress)

“BLACK ASH, Singing over Bones”
is a raw fairytale. It speaks of our wildish nature and instinct, our inner wisdom to let things die when they must. It's a rite of passage, a journey of initiation, that is yours as much as its mine. It takes us to a world between worlds, where things have no name and life gets reborn. So, give me the death I need and my heart will sing up new life."

as well as a video / installation.

more about Seasoning tomorrow.

1. ENDE DER ZUKUNFT - Dance
Truus Bronkhorst | Marc Vanrunxt | Kristel van Issum |Jens van Noten

 

Together with Jens, Truus dances in a piece, created by 4 generations od dancemakers.

Four embodiments of Dance, that teel one story all together. Generations with different passes and different futures. The performance makes connections through time and space, with the duet as a sum, as break-up, als mirror, as duplication.

After the succesful She was a visitore, the solo with which she reaped a lot of appreciation, Truus Bronkhorst now appears with Ende der Zukunft. Again, she works closely with two choreographers, but now also with a second dancer.

With Marc Vanrunxt and Kristel van issum, Truus creates a new link in her long series of powerful, personally loaded dance performances.

After teh solo comes the duet. Two people / dancers either complement or contradict eachother. The sart of communiaction and axchange.

1.  with plesure we introdcue Sabine Molenaar (dance movie)

That's it - the movie
(there is a stage version and a movie version based on the the concept)

Where do dreams end and reality begin?
In this oppressing dream the personage drifts among layers of reality, claws her way back from nightmare dreamscapes and morphs to creatures hidden in the darkest recess of our minds in a dream that transforms body, time and space.
Nothing is what it seems. In spirals of discomfort the personage keeps the viewer in a state of non-control mirrored, opening the gateway to other worlds of perception where but one burning question exists: where do dreams end and reality begin?

4. Hannah Krol (performance)

Hannah Krol (1989). graduated at the AKV Sint Joost in Breda - fine arts in 2013.

Central in my work are the power of mankind and the direct interaction between people. Those elements give my art projects and performances an universal character. In my projects, subjects of which we are partly aware, but not known to us as key point, are being negotiable in a direct way, like fleeing or body odor.
In my perfomances though, the audience is invited to take part in the moment in an indirect, subtile but at the same time inescapable way. A relationship arises between performer and spactator, where they have an equal role, and both have to react on each other in the actual moment. Themes like existance, suffering and power are treated in an essential way. Besides physicality, they give the performance a psychological, social and ethical aspect.

5. Lucie Petrusova T.R.A.S.H. - dance

Milk II
The space is Dark and scarsely decorated. A table and a lamp. A white dove - sign of peace, feminity and fertility - lies stock-still on the table, Yet, there is hope. Hope to a new life. The searching can start.

Milk II is a solo for T.r.a.s.h.-performer Lucie Petrusová, created by choreographer Kristel van Issum. A tender and yet fierce story in which very step, every wingbeat is newly lived. A personal story, made in a period that compelld a new beginning. A rite of passage to new colours.

CAST & CREW
Concept & Choreography: Kristel van Issum, Scenery: Paul van Weert, Performed by: Lucie Petrusová, Editing soundtrack: Jeske de Blauw, Dramaturgic advise: René Jagers

Milk II is a co-production with Theater im Ballsaal en Brotfabrik, Bonn (DE).

1. Judith Clijsters (choreographer):

Young choreographer and dancer Judith Clijsters (1986), educated in Leeds (NSCD), returned to Belgium after a short carreer in Great-Britain ( Phoenix Dance Theatre), She reconnected with the Flemish Contemporary Dance.
In Seasoning she shows her first solo "same self defined, 28 years later":

Who Am I? Or the other? What does the concept 'self' mean?
Personalised by memories, we renew ourselves over and over again. Like our cells. Judith Clijsters observes her own life. Does she get a clear image or " are we all just happening?" (Alan Watts)

2. Steye Felix - paintings, performance /music

Steye Felix is working on a performance in which he combines his music with his way of working and his paintings.
Personally, he states the performance is his work.
It's about the way he sees his world and wants to portray the atmosphere he experiences in his life.
In the core he is a painter, but who said a painter can't sing? can't dance?

Steye Felix (1990) is a young artist whose practice has its foundations in formal painterly abstraction. Yet although the discipline painting remains an important center to his universe, Steye frequently ventures out on different paths, leading him to music, soundscapes, installations, even needlework and most recently glass.

The principles of his practice seem simple, but it’s simplicity comes through a labor intensive process. As a tight-rope walker Steye Felix creates compositions charged with tension by combining form and color in such a way that it feels ever so slightly off balance.

3.  Adam Russell - music

We saw Adam play at the great performance of Lisaboa HoubrechtsKuiperskaai: Mariembourg. And we fell in love immediately.
Under the title : "I haven't seen the Sun in days",he performs for us at Seasoning#5.

This is how he describes it himself:
Adam Russell (Be) sings songs about dooming tomorrows, unhealthy diets and other fun stuff.

4.Marieke Burghouts - dance

About the dance performance titled: je suis le ROI du monde
The piece discusses a universal issue, namely power and subversion of bodies in society. The performance is very interdisciplinary: mixing sound and video installation with dance and live interactive sound. These mediums are applied thoughtfully, drawing audiences in to the rich visual and aural words of the piece.

“Even though we construct society through and through, it surpasses us, it dominates us, it has its own laws, it is transcendent as nature.” Bruno Latour, We Have Never Been Modern. 1993

About the creation/collaboration
This piece is developed as part of my graduation of the M.A. Choreography at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, UK. It was performed at Laban on July 17 2014. Choreographer Marlieke Burghouts developed this piece in collaboration with dancer Alice Labant and sound artist Sherry Ostapovich.
www.marliekeburghouts.com

5. Sam Scheuermann / 6. Marleen Manders - performance

For Seasoning#5, director of United Cowboys Maarten van der Put,
worked with Sam Scheuermann – student at the Toneelacademie Maastricht- on new short performances.
The result is 3 intimite documents undoubtedly with the signature of Maarten, two of them performed with the freshness of young performer Sam. The third by punctual dancer Marleen Manders.

1. Fading Shades
A slight darkness, caused by the blocking of some light, - the dark parts of a picture something that screens or shelters from light or heat: “a large sunshade”. A variety of a colour; a slight difference; a slight amount; To shelter from light or heat. To make darker. To change very gradually from one colour to another.

2. Do you like this? Like this?
A self portrait at your service.

3. So you want Anger
Maarten van der Put’s favourite video pops up in almost all his work; the image of an extraordinary sweet black dancer who tries his outmost best to be angry. No succes.
This time, projected on the lap of an apparently innocent bride, the video embodies social issues like xenophobia, global injustice etc.

7. Eline van Ark - dance performance

The Invisible Dancer – try out

The Invisible Dancer is a sensorial dance performance that will be experienced with closed eyes. The sounds of the dancer will activate your imagination. Sound becomes tangible and movements get under your skin. Do you dare to surrender to the tangibility of the dark? Will you find your safety within the invisibility?

Close your eyes to see beyond the shape of dance, and discover how deep the experience can go.

 Work of Eline van Ark is sensorial, interactive, and conceptually simple yet strong. During the creative process of The Invisible Dancer, Eline collaborates with people with a visual impairment, residents of the Amsterdam Transvaal neighborhood, and (dance) artists. Together with them she researches the possibilities of listening to dance. With their feedback, knowledge and experience as a base, Eline will create the final version of the choreography. A choreography about blind trust.

8. Antonio MV & Lotte van Gelder (Bela TV) - video

We celebrate our state of perennial ennuie, by carving out these short moments of dramatic impressions and serve them to you via screens. You see us. We dance, we fuck, we wait, we sport. We are forever hungry. We have eaten quite enough. And we are so sorry to have kept you waiting.

BELA TV for Seasoning #5: BELA TV is an artivist multifocal video platform that deals with issues of production, reproduction and the vacuous of visual imagery in the present digital age. TV BELA currently is carried by the participative input of dozens of artists and non-artists of various nationalities, a sum of more than 300 video objects, and several presentations all around Europe. For this Seasoning#5, António MV and Lotte van Gelder selected the following titles: "international walk of shame", "THE GESTUAL FILM", "reality hits", "somewhereovertherainbow", "THE FLASHING SHOW" and "reality hits".
