UNHEARD OF – World Première – June 9-12th

UNHEARD OF – Uferstudios Wedding – Studio 14 – 9-12 June 2016 – 20.30
“Don’t believe everything you hear.”
The performance “Unheard Of” investigates the body’s potential to point beyond itself: towards an uncanny realm between the aural and the visual. Exploring the craft of “foley” as a choreographic tool and performative practice, “Unheard Of“ dives into the world of cinematic post-production, where the sounds of movement, steps, clothing, and props are created in the sound studio and synchronized to the moving image. The manipulation of objects and bodies in the style of the functional movement propagated within postmodern dance produces the illusory and ominous soundscapes of the film fragments shown on stage. By bringing foley from the sound studio to the stage, the project is dedicated to making an invisible art form visible.
Concept, choreography: Kareth Schaffer | Performance, dramaturgy: Boglárka Börcsök | Performance, sound engineering: Niels Bovri | Performance, music: Manon Parent | Performance, light design: Cathy Walsh | Costume design: Lee Meir | Technical direction, light design: Michele Piazzi | PR: björn & björn | Production management: Cilgia Gadola / M.i.C.A. | Funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds in cooperation with Tanzfabrik Berlin.

21 & 22 Mai 2016 – 20.30 – ADA STUDIO – for “10 times 6″
Solid Rock Interaction presents – embodied by one dancer on stage – a body-ear, a body-instrument, and a music-oriented body-score.
The project, originating in the desire of choreographer and musician Manon Parent and percussionist Pascal Parent – daughter and father – to collaborate, is a dialogue between their respective practices, dance and music, in which they seek a ”rhythmical understanding”. Motivated by a rhythmical structure written by Pascal Parent, Manon Parent developed a physical score where the body, in order to fulfill its tasks, changes its normal response patterns. This body is also responding to its societal environment ; the choreography is therefore partly referring to war aesthetics, physical training and submissive acts.

Unerhört -Research Presentation

by Kareth Schaffer
Research presentation
Kareth Unheard of
Don’t believe everything you hear.
Kareth Schaffer explores foley as a choreographic tool and performative practice. “Unerhört“ dives into the world of cinematic post-production, where the sounds of movement, steps, clothing, and props are created in the sound studio and synchronized to the moving image. An uncanny realm between film, sound, and dance – between the aural and the visual – points away from and next to the performers’ bodies. „Open Spaces“ gives insight into a longer research process before a premiere in summer 2016.
Performance and collaboration: Niels Bovri, Manon Parent, Kareth Schaffer
With the support of Tanzfabrik Berlin, Uferstudios Berlin GmbH, NRW Kultur- sekretariat, Tanzhaus NRW and Hans Peter Zimmer Stiftung Düsseldorf.
