Arrangements de quelques coins et bords

Past: Saturday, February 8, 2014 2 PM → 10:30 PM

You are invited to take part in a Seminar in several acts, imagined as a Cluedo game by choreographer Adva Zakai and graphists’ collective Åbäke. During an afternoon and an evening, performances, lectures, readings, a dinner and a movie will follow each other exploring the mystery of our contemporary private spaces, between interior geographies and dissident spaces.

Throughout the day trip, themes and characters will meet in unpredictable crossroads and become a part of each other’s discourse, until new relations are formed between them. A philosopher who will talk about biopolitics might be visited by a dancer who claims that her body is a table. A lecture by an art theoretician about post-humanism and liminal spaces could transform organically into an opera song about secret house gatherings of men dressed as women in the 50’s. While an author will read stories about his 50m2 parisian apartment, an architect might interrupt his flow, and right before she’ll conclude her argument, Rod Serling will show up and kidnap her into his twilight zone script.. .

As the day progresses, we will gradually find ourselves in a scene from Agatha Christie in which Miss Marple gathers all the suspects, to unfold, in the presence of spectator-witnesses how the murder took place. In this case, nobody has been killed yet but we are sure of one thing: it will take place in an albertivillarien living room.

With (a.o): Abäke, Adva Zakai, Bénédicte Chaljub (architect), Thomas Clerc (writer), Gabriel Desplanque (artist), Peter Pal Pelbart (philosopher), Rod Serling (script writer), Aneta Stojnic (artist, art theoretician), Noam Toran (artist)…
