BLINKING illuminates the missed sight, splintering dance into tiny moving stills and the hallucinatory cinema of the back of the eyelid. LOSTWAX invites you to enter the waking dream of BLINKING, the impress…ions behind one woman’s eyes.

Live Stage: Allora & Calzadilla [de Berlin]

allora_lg.jpgJennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla :: July 11 – September 6, 2009 :: Opening: July 10; 9:00 pm :: Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin, Schlossplatz, Berlin-Mitte.

Allora & Calzadilla’s new work Compass, conceived specifically for the Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin, creates a new spatial and acoustic experience. Dividing the Kunsthalle horizontally, a new level is introduced into the space, inaccessible to the viewer and reducing the grand exhibition hall to less than one third of its normal height. Visitors can only hear the vibrations and sounds of an a capella dancer performing a choreography above their heads. The otherwise empty exhibition space is turned into a huge resonating chamber: “The performer is like a specter that moves through this flat horizontal stretch and whose sonic traces become a type of metrical language – a rhythmic and poetic means of communication with the public below.” (Allora & Calzadilla) Continue reading
