Performance Lecture: Choreographic Cuts & Talking Thoughts

Focusing on the examination of movement as an ambivalent language and constructing methods for each new artistic endeavor, Björn Säfsten shines new light on the human body in a context of movement. His work deals with the borders that divide gesture and movement and how fiction and identity are produced in choreography. For his first guest performance in Istanbul Björn Säfsten presents a performance lecture together with dancers working on current projects and upcoming productions. Excerpts and improvisations from and in conjunction with current pieces Fictional Copies (2013) and upcoming Idiots (opening Oct. 2014) are mixed with an in-depth presentation of the choreographic practices and methods. Intertwined are also experiences from the ongoing research project Björn Säfsten is conducting with philosopher Per Nilsson at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts. All followed by an open discussion with the audience.

Made possible with support by the Swedish Arts Council, the City of Stockholm and the Research Council.

“Because you don’t know how to love…If you would know, you wouldn’t be such strong and perfect.”
Ocak is the story of love and struggle of a family who suffers from poverty in 1960s. They try to stay together by condoning each other’s imperfections.
Each member dreams about a different path for their own future but they try to stay together with the help of love and fidelity they have for each other. This is not just a dramatic story of a poor family trying to survive despite hard life conditions; rather it is a colorful story of a dreamer father, a super hero mother, a daydreamer grandmother and kids who were grown up in this environment yet ended up having completely different personalities. It is a heart warming story about being a family.

The body exceeds its limits and merges into the cold but generous surface of the gigantic device. Sound interrupts a silent space and engraves its shadow in the dust of the time while images awaken from legends beyond the cultural memory. Something deeply rooted in our bones and never truly graspable… Come close and listen. The script of the body is actualizing itself in the traces of the energy and the molecules around us are changing.

In Frozen Dream, choreographers Julia Ritter and Ayrin Ersöz, in collaboration with American and Turkish dancers and musicians, engage audiences through interactive performances amongst the turbines and mechanical spaces of the former Silahtarağa Power Plant, the Ottoman Empire's first urban-scale power plant, now part of santralistanbul arts center.

Frozen Dream invites audiences to shift roles between spectators, creators, curators and performers, in order to experience the idea of energie, a term derived from Aristotelian philosophy and meaning the possibility of action rather than action itself alongside the Islamic concept audiencing known as seyir, whose Arabic root means to travel from one place to another on a physical journey. Through energie and seyir, the spectator is integrated within and co-generative of the Frozen Dream.

Santralistanbul Arts Center. Frozen Dream is an international, collaborative project between three universities: Rutgers University in NJ, USA and Yıldız Technical University and Bilgi University in Istanbul.
