VERSO LA SPECIE 2 Beyrouth 

Direction artistique et enseignement menés par Claudia Castellucci
avec Alessandro Bedosti

Du 6 au 15 mars 2018
9h à 17h (pauses inclues)
Beyrouth – le lieu exact sera précisé bientôt –

L’hégémonie dans la danse que nous proposons est celle de la musique, et non du corps. Il n’est pas question d’expression corporelle, il s’agit plutôt de présence physique ininterrompue, d’une présence apprêtée et déterminée à affronter le temps qui se manifeste dans la musique. Il faut traiter avec le passé lorsqu’il a déjà convergé avec le présent, et quand même la pause est un moment de présence assumé. Le mouvement principal est celui d’une ambulation chorale, construite à partir de canons inspirés de la métrique de la poésie grecque antique, et à partir de l’essence de la motion des chevaux. La danse est ici une révélation de la présence individuelle, qui émerge du – et grâce au – mouvement choral.

Les éléments principaux qui seront pratiqués et étudiés:
⋅ La danse circulaire rythmique, fondée sur la métronomie.
⋅ La cadence (telle que dans la métrique de la poésie grecque antique) comme invention rythmique pour la danse pratiquée ensemble
⋅ Le passage en danse, qui relève des intervalles et des silences musicaux de façon spéci- que, et sa correspondance avec le passage d’une position à une prochaine.
⋅ La psychologie de la durée, entendue en tant que façon d’entreprendre une action sans aucune médiation, préparation ou improvisation.

Les langues parlées par Claudia Castellucci sont l’italien et le français. Une interprète traduira vers l’arabe.

Verso la Specie (ENVERS L’ESPÈCE) est une danse qui s’est formée tout au long des travaux d’enseignement de Claudia Castellucci à Cesena, dans les locaux de la compagnie Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio désormais devenue “Socìetas”. Cette danse est depuis 2016 exportée vers plusieurs villes, d’abord Venise, puis Beyrouth, Moscou, Rio de Janeiro, Athènes, Téhéran et Istanbul.

Le rythme, pour Claudia Castellucci, a été la pierre d’angle de chaque école qu’elle a créé. Il a toujours été distinctif dans son travail d’artiste en cela que les formes qu’elle crée sont investies de modèles rythmiques appréhendés comme mouvement physique et comme ré- exion théorique.

NIVEAU ET PROFIL: Un niveau avancé en pratique physique et corporelle et une aptitude ryth- mique sont requis.

PRIX : 450’000 L.L (300 $)
INSCRIPTION: UN RENDEZ-VOUS EST NÉCESSAIRE ET PRÉALABLE À TOUTE INSCRIPTION.

Prière de nous écrire à: versolaspeciebeirut2018@dawawine.com Inscriptions ouvertes jusqu’au 15 décembre 2017.

بيروت – سيتم تحديد المكان في وقت لاحق

‮«‬إنّ الهيمنة في هذه الرقصة التي نقترح، هي للموسيقى وليست للجسد. لا‭ ‬ننشغل‭ ‬في التعبير الجسدي، بل في حضور جسماني غير منقطع، وجاهز ومصمِّم على تناول الزمن المتجلّي في الموسيقى. يجب التعامل مع الماضي عندما كان قد اندمج مع الحاضر، فحتّى لحظة التوقّف هي فترة حضور مسؤولة. إنّ الحركة الرئيسيّة هي كناية عن تَمَشٍّ جوقيٍّ من منطلقِ معاييرِ النسبيّة الجماليّة المستوحاة من‭ ‬الشبكات‭ ‬الإيقاعيّة‭ ‬في الشِّعْرِ الإغريقيّ ومِن أساس‭ ‬حركة الجياد. الرقص‭ ‬هنا هو تجلّي الحضور الفرديّ، يطفو من الحركة الجوقيّة، وبسببها

العناصر الأساسيّة التي سيتمّ تناولها، ودراستها، وممارستها:

الرقص الدوريّ المُوَقَّع على أساس النَبْضِ الثابت

الكادانس (أي الهبوط في بروزوديا الخطابة في التقليد الشعري الاغريقي) كوسيلة إيقاعيّة للرقص الممارَس جماعةً

الانتقال في الرقص، والذي يؤدّي إلى مسافات ولحظات صمت موسيقيّة بطريقة محدّدة، وتزامنه مع الانتقال من موضعية إلى أخرى

سيكولوجيا المدّة الزمنيّة، حيث تُفهَم من منظار الشروع في حركةٍ دون أيّ وساطة، أو تحضير، أو ارتجال

تتكلّم كستيلوتشي اللّغتين الإيطالية والفرنسية، وستتم الترجمة إلى العربية.

باتجاه الأجناس هي رقصة تشكلت طوال مسيرة كستيلوتشي التعليميّة في مدينة تشيزينا الإيطالية، على مسارح شركةسوييتاس رافاييلو سانزيوSocìetas Raffaello Sanzio التي أصبحت في ما بعدسوسييتاسSocìetas. وتنتقل هذه الرقصة حالياً الى مدن عدّة أولها البندقية فبيروت ثم موسكو،‭ ‬ريو‭ ‬دي‭ ‬جانيرو، أثينا، طهران وإسطنبول.

الإيقاع بالنسبة لـكستيلوتشي هو حجر الأساس في كل مدرسة أوجدتها، ولطالما تميّز به عملها كفنانة، إذ أنّ الأشكال التي تُنتجها تُستثمر بنماذج إيقاعية محددة كحركة جسدية وكانعكاس نظري.

VERSO LA SPECIE 2 Beirut

Artistic direction and training and dancing master : Claudia Castellucci

With Alessandro Bedosti

From 6th to 15th of March 2018
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (including breaks)
Beirut – the exact location will be informed soon –

“The hegemony of the dance we propose is the music not the body. It is not about the body expression, it is about uninterrupted physical presence, prepared and determined to address the time that is manifest in the music. The past must be dealt with when it has already converged into the present, and even the pause is a responsible moment of presence. The principal movement is a choral ambulation built on some of the canons inspired by the metrics of archaic Greek poetry and the essential movement of horses. Dance is a revelation of the individual presence, which emerges from – and thanks to – choral movement.”

Principal topics that will be studied and practised in the seminar are:
⋅ circular rhythmic dance, on the basis of metronomy.
⋅ the cadence, taken from the metrics of archaic Greek poetry, as a rhythmic invention for current dance
⋅ ‘passing through” in dance, that treats the interval and the musical rest in a specific way, corresponding to the passage between the position that has just been left behind and the one to be taken up.
⋅the psychology of duration, that is, how to make the action to be undertaken happen without any mediation, preparation or improvisation.

The languages spoken by Claudia Castellucci are Italian and French; She will be assisted by a interpreter who will translate to Arabic or/and English.

Verso la Specie (T o w a r d s  t h e  s p e c i e s)  is a dance that has been formed during the long-standing course held in Cesena, in the premises of theatre company Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio which has now become “Socìetas”. The dance is being exported to other cities, starting with Venice, then Beirut, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, Athens, Tehran and Istanbul.

Rhythm, for Claudia Castellucci, has been the cornerstone of every school she has created and has always distinguished her work as an artist who invests rhythmic models that can be referred to both physical movement and theoretical reflection.

LEVEL AND PROFILE: An advanced level in physical and bodily practice, and a rythmic ability are required.

PRICE: 450’000 LBP (300$)

REGISTRATIONS: AN APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY PRIOR TO ANY REGISTRATION.

Please write to us at : versolaspeciebeirut2018@dawawine.com

Registrations are open until 15th of December 2017.

By the way, I love you. Lecture & Open Talk. Sat. 6th May

BY THE WAY, I LOVE YOU.

Lecture & Open Talk by Martin Fasting (DK), Jeroen Kooijmans (NL), Josh Müller (D/AT) and Henk Wildshut (NL)

Saturday 6th of May from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

This is an initiative of a group of European artists to investigate the possibilities to make a relevant project about art and love in Beirut. Our reason to choose Beirut as a fix point for this project has partly to do with it’s reputation of being a rather open and international minded city. Further on Lebanon in terms of culture, diversity, history and politics is in a sense also a micro cosmos of the region at the same time as it is very much its own of course. Last but not less important we would like to do a research on universal love in order to find optimism in a world that increasingly seems to be ruled by fear these years.

In these strange times where more walls and more exclusion seems to be the answer to our collective difficult global situation we find it not only interesting but also utterly important to connect and collaborate across whatever meaningless borders strange people in power and suits out of fear and political agendas tend to draw on their maps.

So what we among other things hope to find would be the possibility for discussion as well as the possibility to connect with others on this universal theme and project on love.

The working title for the project is: By the way, I love you.

‘Love’ might sound something saccharine, but we are very serious about it.

We as artists will each see different possibilities from our own fields of practice to produce work on the theme of love and the many possibility’s this subject provides. We want to keep the topic and form quite open in the first phase and research. However, in the end the goal is to make a positive inspiring contribution. A positive spark as small as it might be may lead to optimism and new energies witch again could lead to changes.

We will tell about the “By the way” foundation and previous projects that have been done in this context. We will also introduce our selves through four short introductory lectures (each 20 min).

Together, we will report on this first phase studies. We would like to have a discussion about the content of the project and the feasibility of the targets. By this also to connect with other kindred spirits to give this project more body and maybe to enter into collaborations.

Our group now consists of four artists from Europe, Martin Fasting (Painting) from Copenhagen, Josh Muller (film and installation) from Vienna, Henk Wildschut (documentary Photography) and Jeroen Kooijmans (film and architecture) from Amsterdam.

This is an initiative of The Bytheway Foundation, a non-profit organization which aims to organize various international art productions on different locations.

Hassan Khan | Twelve Clues book launch

On Friday, November 11 at 7 p.m. we celebrate the launch of Hassan Khan’s recent novella Twelve Clues with a reading by Kaelen Wilson-Goldie followed by a Q&A with the author and the designer, and a surprise music listening. 

Hassan Khan | Twelve Clues   

published by Sommerakademie im Zentrum Paul Klee and Mousse Publishing, 2016


This event is organised in collaboration with Beirut Art Center,

and with the support of  25c6be83-225f-4509-9dee-4f5833e047db

6d8b5cf2-a975-44fb-b2f7-c456d5c66e7c

Things are not always what they seem in this fast paced, freaked out little tale that begins with a disappearance and ends with a joke. The action zips from a secret lab with decommissioned robots and silverback gorillas with their memories wiped out to the refined boardrooms of CORPORATIONINCORPORATED; from the drug ranches of the Beqaa’ Valley to the wrong side of Budapest; and from a faded Zamalek apartment to a sweaty underground music club in Austin. Twelve Clues takes place in a world very much like ours… but is it?

With artworks by Antonina Baever, Bonnie Begusch, Sacha Beraud, Veronica Gerber Bicceci, Clare Butcher, Hannah Fitz, Ericka Florez Hidalgo, Shahab Fotouhi, Patricia Boyd, Tomas Maglione, Cerrajero Rodriguez, Martine Syms.

يسعى المهرجان إلى إلقاء الضوء على الفعل الفنّي بعلاقته مع السّياق الاجتماعي والسياسي، كما يهدف إلى كسر الحواجز الثقافية في مسعى لإعادة تعريف المجتمع المعاصر على قاعدة التنوّع.

Zoukak Sidewalks 2016 – The Festival at Dawawine

On the 8th of November, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Opening-reception, with the exhibition “Burial” and an artist talk with Mark Mitchell about his rich artistic journey.  The exhibition will remain till the 13th of November 

The 2013 performance and exhibition “BURIAL” at the Frye Art Museum in part explored our relationship with the dead, how we view the bodies of our loved ones, and how we might honor them in a way both iconic and personal. The nine burial ensembles were designed and made for each of the nine model/muses who inspired them in the performance/viewing. Mark Mitchell also explored through the many hours of handwork that went into making them a personal meditation and letting go of 20 plus years of mourning over loved ones lost, Mark was unable to memorialize at the time of their deaths. The work plays with thoughts of eternity and ephemerality, the stylized and iconic all white ensembles rendering the models into marble while every material used was chosen for its ability to be reabsorbed back into the earth as quickly as is natural, like the unpreserved human body. These pieces are not complete until they have been reabsorbed into the earth. 

Mitchell works in hand-sewn textiles to examine issues of ceremony, tribute, and mourning, often using the tropes of funeral traditions. In his recent body of work, Burial, Mitchell explored these ideas through a series of intricate burial ensembles. His current project, Burial 2, tackles issues of mass incarceration, prison reform, and the racial disparity of the prison system – imbuing mourning with an activist intention. 

Mark MITCHELL is an artist who speaks to social issues through textiles. His contributions to the cultural community bridge a number of disciplines, including art, music, theatre, fashion, activism, and education. He is the subject of the award-winning documentary film Mark Mitchell. His large work, the performance and exhibition Burial, at the Frye Art Museum in 2013 was a critical and popular success. “His Bow Dress” in 2010 with Anna Telcs and “Implied Violence” is in the permanent collection at the Frye Art Museum. 

Mark was recently artist-in-residence at The New Foundation Seattle where he continued to develop his new group of sculptures, “Burial 2”, concerning racism and mass incarceration. He attended the CEL Residency at PICA last April, and was in residence at the City of Seattle’s Municipal Gallery May 14 through July 16, 2016. He was a finalist for the 2015 Neddy Award at Cornish, a finalist for the 2016 Artist Trust Innovator Award, and received the 2016 Kayla Skinner special Recognition Award from The Seattle Art Museum.

On the 13th of November, from 12 to 1:30 p.m.

Masterclass with Thomas Ostermeier

Thomas Ostermeier considers theatre as an art specialized in conflict, ruled by complexity, and should not be based on good intentions. In this talk, Ostermeier will share his vision about the role of theatre in the contemporary political, economical and social systems. Within the global complex political situation and multiple crises, and the challenges facing the cultural sector in general, where does theatre stand as an art form today? What position can it take? What relationship can it build with the audience/society?

After studying direction in Berlin in the 1980s, Thomas OSTERMEIER’s name first appeared on the map when he was appointed artistic director of the Barracke at the Deutsches Theater, where he worked from 1996 to 1999. There, he directed plays by modern German and English-speaking playwrights, to great acclaim. In September 1999, aged 31, he became co-artistic director of the Schaubühne, where he continued his work as a discoverer of new texts. Classic or modern, those texts are always reinterpreted and integrated to the reality of post-reunification Germany and of an officially-united Europe. Yet those plays, like the German and European states, remain splintered, echoing the reality of a world in which conflicts are multiplying and barbarism hasn’t disappeared. Thomas Ostermeier’s engaged, living, critical, and generous theatre is just as concerned with the role of the individual within society as with great timeless questions.

Shifting Polarities: the VHS Tape in Film (Autumn 2016)

Shifting Polarities: the VHS Tape in Film is a series of screenings & discussions on the presence of the Video Tape in narrative cinema, presented by Vartan Avakian in collaboration with Dawawine.

The series runs parallel to Avakian’s seminar on the videotape at the School of Visual Arts at Alba. 

9c444192-8491-47b4-b288-d52847792904

The subject

VHS, the video home system that dominated consumer markets in the 1980s, was designed to be a personal, portable and an intimate medium for recording video. Cinema was attracted by the mysterious architecture of this magnetic videotape as an object of latent images and utilized the act of videotaping as a self-reflexive tool in its narrative. In the films of this series, the videotape appears into story and unthreads the narrative fabric of the characters by introducing new paradigms that disrupt the coordinates of their reality.

The sense of a scholastic practice based on rhythmic movement. Seminar with Claudia Castellucci

بالعربيّة
(lire le texte en français plus bas)

The seminar will take place in Dawawine’s library, on October 11th, 7 p.m.

Language : Claudia will speak in Italian; she also understands and can respond in French. An interpreter will be there to translate to English.

This seminar is organized in the frame of  TOWARDS THE SPECIES A Rhythm and movement school with Claudia Castellucci

claudia seminar

 

 

 

 

 

Claudia Castellucci co-founded Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio n 1981 with Romeo Castellucci and Chiara Guidi. In the company she deals with the composition of texts, both dramatic and theoretical, in addition to being an interpreter.

After writing Santa Sofia-Teatro Khmer, manifesto of an iconoclastic theatre (1986), she began her own metric and melodic research.

Since 1989, she explores and shares this study with the Scuola teatrica della discesa, a group of young people that meets regularly in three-year cycles, combining gymnastics with a philosophical practice.

From 2003 to 2008, she has led another school more specifically dedicated to rhythmic movement: la Stoa, with which she composed five Balli, dances marked by an interpretation of movement on the meter of musical time.

Since 2009, her art has branched out in two directions: one explores dance as a discipline long practiced by experts, the other goes on the idea of school as a work made up of relationships. The first is made possible through the founding of Mòra, a company composed of classically trained dancers, who perform the dance Homo Turbae.

The second is performed by Calla, another school of gymnastics and philosophy that in 2011 interpreted Nascita del Clan; and with Sorties de la Caverne. Ecole du rythme de Bordeaux, a school that performs Celebrations in the city, actions of rhythmic intensity and new inventions. In 2011, she began a study based on Le Sacre du Printemps, which was completed in 2012 with the dance La seconda Neanderthal.

Claudia Castellucci also performs her own texts, such as the sermon Il Regno profondo (2011), and the ballad Dialogo degli Schiavi (2012).

She’s active in the visual arts field: for I Passanti – exhibition of  newspaper clippings (2012) she has created forty commented collages intended for exhibition. They are extractions of printed paper figures on which opinions are applied.

The Celebrazione dei gesti istoriali (2012) is an imitative action following a series of her drawings.

Between 2014-2016 she wrote the dialogues for God down Moses, Metope del Partenone, Natura e origine della mente, all performances by her brother Romeo.

Her published work includes: Il teatro della socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, dal teatro iconoclasta alla super-icona (Ubulibri, Milano 1992); Uovo di bocca. Scritti lirici e drammatici (Bollati Boringhieri, Torino 2000); Epopea della polvere (Ubulibri, Milano 2001); Les Pèlerins de la matière, théorie et praxis du théâtre (Les Solitaires Intempestifs, Besançon 2001); The Theatre of Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio (Routledge London-NewYork 2007); Setta. Scuola di tecnica drammatica (Quodlibet, Roma, 2015)

 

Le sens d’une pratique scolastique basée sur le mouvement rythmique. Séminaire avec Claudia Castellucci

Le séminaire aura lieu dans la librairie Dawawine, le 11 octobre, à 19h.

Langues : Claudia parlera en italien, elle peut comprendre et répondre en français. Un interprète sera présent pour traduire vers l’anglais.

Ce séminaire est organisé dans le cadre de ENVERS L’ESPÈCE L’école du rythme et du mouvement de Claudia Castellucci à Beyrouth

 

Claudia Castellucci a cofondé la Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio en 1981 avec Romeo Castellucci et Chiara Guidi.

Au sein de la compagnie elle rédigeait des textes dramatiques et théoriques, et y était également actrice.

Après avoir écrit Santa Sofia-Teatro Khmer, manifeste pour un théâtre iconoclaste (1986), elle a commencé sa propre recherche métrique et mélodique.

À partir de 1989, elle explore et fait part de sa recherche à la Scuola teatrica della discesa, un groupe de jeunes gens qui se réunissent régulièrement pendant 3 ans, et qui combinent la gymnastique avec la pratique philosophique.

Entre l’année 2003 et l’année 2008, elle mène une autre école, la Stoa, spécifiquement dédiée au mouvement rythmique. Avec cette école, Claudia compose cinq Balli, ces danses sont caractérisées par une interprétation du mouvement selon le mètre du temps musical.

Depuis 2009, sa pratique artistique tend vers deux directions. La première explore la danse en tant que discipline pour praticiens expérimentés et avancés. Elle est rendue possible avec la création de Mòra, une compagnie de danseurs de formation classique, qui a joué la performance Homo Turbae.

La seconde, qui poursuit l’idée de l’école comme travail dans un ensemble de relations, a donné jour à Calla, une école de gymnastique et de philosophie, ainsi que Sorties de la Caverne. École du rythme de Bordeaux.

En 2011, elle a entamé une étude sur Le Sacre du Printemps, dont l’accomplissement en 2012 a donné la danse La seconda Neanderthal.

Claudia Castellucci a également interprété ses propres textes, tels que le sermon Il Regno profondo (2011), et la ballade Dialogo degli Schiavi (2012).

Elle est également active dans le domaine des arts visuels. Sa création I Passanti est un ensemble de 40 collages avec commentaires, réalisés avec des coupures de presse et détourages, montés en exposition.

Quant à Celebrazione dei gesti istoriali (2012), il s’agît d’une performance appelée “action mimique” selon une série de dessins de Claudia.

Entre l’année 2014 et l’année 2016, elle a écrit les dialogues de Go down Moses, Metope del Partenone, et Natura e origine della mente, pour des performances de son frère Romeo Castellucci.

Les œuvres qu’elle a publiées sont: Il teatro della socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, dal teatro iconoclasta alla super-icona (Ubulibri, Milano 1992); Uovo di bocca. Scritti lirici e drammatici (Bollati Boringhieri, Torino 2000); Epopea della polvere (Ubulibri, Milano 2001); Les Pèlerins de la matière, théorie et praxis du théâtre (Les Solitaires Intempestifs, Besançon 2001); The Theatre of Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio (Routledge London-NewYork 2007); Setta. Scuola di tecnica drammatica (Quodlibet, Roma, 2015)

TO KEEP DRIFTING- READING AROUND “THE SPARED ONES”

Reading around Carine Doumit’s THE SPARED ONES – LES ÉPARGNÉS

with texts selected by Carine Doumit, Sara Sehnaoui and Nour Ouayda

keep-drifting-epargnes
In extension to the book’s form, this reading takes THE SPARED ONES, a book published by Carine Doumit in November 2015 with Ashkal Alwan, as a starting point for a reading of fragments, taken from the book itself or from other textual and audio sources that the three readers feel can echo, or possibly enter in a dialog with Carine Doumit’s text.

This reading is part of the CINEMATIC DRIFTS series presented by Nour Ouayda in the end of july at Dawawine.

THE SPARED ONES is a book that started out as a project for a film, explored with voice recordings and eventually became a book that revealsitself as a constellation of texts written by the author, citations and illustrations.

Our attempt to make it drift into and onto an oral form will start at 7 p.m.
The selected texts will be mostly in french, with some texts in english and arabic.
