Performance & Legacy

Une série permanente de projections autour du legs et de la performance.
Toujours par le biais de la performance, il s’agit des facettes et des mécanismes, naturels ou artificiels, de la succession. Il s’agit du temps présent en tant qu’il est observé par le passé et observé par l’avenir.
Il s’agit d’accomplissements et de transformations dont nous sommes témoins et de celles dont nous restons éventuellement ignorants. Elles requièrent de notre part des dispositions variées passant par la soumission et allant jusqu’au volontarisme .

FICTITIOUS FORCE by Philip Widmann, 2015, 15 min. Bengali, ENG subtitles

A theorem from physics that describes apparent forces in circular motion when ob- served from an external frame of reference lends its name to the film. Shot during a festival of devotees of Shiva by a local crew in Kolkata/India, and in a language that the director neither speaks nor understands, the film relies on the visual and leaves us puzzled.

SCHOOL OF MOON par Shonen theater company, 2016, 7 min. film muet

School of Moon est la métaphore d’une post-humanité en éveil, d’une communauté troublante appelant des corps enfantins et robotiques, d’un grand corps de chair et de métal ; et celle de l’évolution de la représentation du corps, des premières pein- tures rupestres, de l’écorché de Vinci, du robot humanoïde, du corps virtuel… 

KIDBIRDS FOR CAMERA par Eric Minh Cuong Castaing & David Daurier, 2014, 12 min. film muet

Eric Minh Cuong Castaing & David Daurier ont appliqué un processus de tournage dans une classe d’enfants sensibilisés à la danse de Merce Cunningham.

JOULE, by Zapruder filmmakers group, 2010, 22 min, Italian with English subtitles

Inspired by Mauss anthropological essay “The Gift”, Joule is articulated by sums of tableaux, which reconnect the movie to an economic analysis.

This film depicts the act of living as an infinite self-combustion, in pure loss, proving to be a paradox of profit theories.

Based in Roncofreddo, Italy, ZAPRUDERfilmmakersgroup was formed in 2000 by David Zamagni, Nadia Ranocchi and Monaldo Moretti.
Zapruder’s work creeps into the interstitial area between visual, performance and cinematographic arts; audiovisual outputs driven by an ongoing challenge to language and medium that give rise to what the group defines as “Chamber Cinema”, a sort of incarnated and tactile cinema, as well as a form of incorporeal theatre. Since 2005, the group has been exploring and employing stereoscopic techniques in its production of films and installations.
A significant part of Zapruder’s work has taken place within the context of Italian experimental theatre throughout collaborations with Motus, Fanny & Alexander and Romeo Castellucci/Societas Raffaello Sanzio.
