LIFE DRAWS AT SONICA

 

lighter life draws sonica layout free

a conceptual framework for performance, active observation and its benefits to the mind- a public and practice based exploration within consciously created circumstance:

Piotr Bockowski  – Anastasia Freygang

with sound by Cao and Paul Jones

Taking the principle of a life drawing class where observation leads to interpretation this format induces expanding space for concentration. By allowing time for the viewer to absorb the given expression of the performers it is the act of drawing that marks the inter-exchange between audience and artist.

First set by Piotr Bockowski with music by Cao for an act of beheading, composed of a series of compulsive gestures triggered by the sonic exorcism of CAO. She incarnates an ancient peruvian pre-Incan pre colonial empress performing musical human sacrifice on Piotr Bockowski extending his body into a neurotic pyramid

Second set by Paul jones in collaboration with Anastasia Freygang playing layers of electronica to guitar and samples of spoken word. The performance is dealing with self exposure, musing on human presence in poems and conversation. playing your brain

A living tableaux with a mind on its own where performers share their practice for the benefit of activating exchange and learning in communally attended sessions

an initiative of HIAS health in the arts

transforming environments- offering engagement levels- testing grounds for togetherness : contrasting entertainment

in performance a lot of intents, no matter the trend, mostly have a beautiful, thought provoking konzept

but there is something energetically difficult if one person is singled out from the rest and keeps receiving attention by plan

there is people though who truly and sincerely have something to transmit and they too make their space, make to be seen

and it makes sense to be exposed to them in return, especially when they are creating a situation

because thats what they are good at,

strong energy, providing circumstance, guiding the moment

it falls and goes with the intensity of the person but if it touches, it touches hard. thats when you go home and you ve actually been out- on a journey, with someone you never met before with someone who you ll never forget.
