THE LIEDER: TWO ACTS OF RESISTANCE

A coreographic, instalative and musical project by Javier Cuevas and Sara Serrano. A project created through open and collaborative practices with artists related to music and choral singing, called in residence and exhibition contexts, based on the repercussions of marching, hymns and collective singing on the body (as a physical body and as a political and ideological corpus); and its build up from resistance, non-producting, the weird, the participation and the questioning on the roles of artist-audience. A transit from the archaic-collective to the domesticated-artificial. From the primitive singing and walking till the choral collective singing and the bourgeois lied.

A DISPOSITIVE
AN INSTALLATION
A DANCE PIECE
MARCHING FOR AN UNKNOWN COMMON MOTIF
AND A PRIVATE AND SECRET INTENTION
A YOGA ASANA
WALK AWAKE AND IN SILENCE
DOUBT TO FIND THE COMMON
AN HYMN WITH JUST ONE WORLD
THE WISH OF BELIEVING IN SOMETHING
TO KEEP THE BOUND
TO ATTEND THE SIGNS WITH DISPOSITION
TO JOIN THE MARCH
TO DO ON THE RUN/MARCH
TO WALK ON THE STEPS OF OTHERS
APPROACH THE ARCHAIC – UNKNOWN
TO MARCH FOR THINGS COMING TO YOU
TO REACH THE FORM AFTER THE ACTION
AN IDEA THAT, WHILE MARCH GOES, STAYS BEHIND

Spanish Matchbox was born as a platform of Spanish contemporary creation that, after several international activities, crystalized at a Festival in E&G Teater (Stamsund, Norway). Now they are taking one step beyond, changing their shape from festival to a cellar production system, able to be set in different contexts and festivals, sharing our same aims, increasing the possible relationships with the involved projects. They inaugurate this new shape with Altofest, the perfect context for the first feedback.

THE LIEDER

Con il sostegno di Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), Programma PICE (Programa para la Internacionalización de la Cultura Española)

With the support and collaboration of Solar, Acción Cultural Sociedad Lugar Arte (Tenerife). Centro Párraga (Murcia). L’Estruch Sabadell (Barcelona). TEA/ Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (Tenerife). And TNT Festival (Tarrasa)

The lieder is a Javier Cuevas and Sara Serrano project in collaboration with: Adán Hernández (writer and performer, Tenerife www.solucionesdramaticas.com), Pilar Beltrán (Pianist, Murcia www.pilarbeltran.es), Raffaella Menchetti (Performer and video artist, http://raffaellamenchetti.tumblr.com/) and Miguel Morales (Film Director, Tenerife https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miguel_G._Morales).

Un progetto musicale, una coreografia, una installazione di Javier Cuevas e Sara Serrano. Un progetto che si origina dalla collaborazione con artisti legati alla musica e al canto corale, incontrati attraverso progetti di residenza o di esibizione. Il progetto si basa sulla ripercussione della marcia, degli inni e dei canti corali sul corpo (come corpo fisico, politico e corpus ideologico). Viene costruito dalla resistenza, quella slegata dalle logiche di produzione, dalla inconsuetudine, dalla partecipazione e da ciò che mette in discussione la relazione artista-pubblico.
Una transazione dall’arcaico-collettivo al domestico-artificiale. Dal canto e dalla marcia collettivi e primitivi fino alla bugia borghese.

UN DISPOSITIVO
UNA INSTALLAZIONE
UNO SPETTACOLO DI DANZA
UNA MARCIA IN NOME DI UN MOTIVO SCONOSCIUTO
UNA MOTIVAZIONE PRIVATA E SEGRETA
UN ASANA YOGA
CAMMINARE SVEGLI E IN SILENZIO
NEL DUBBIO DI TROVARE UN MOTIVO COMUNE
L’INNO DI UN UNICO MONDO
IL DESIDERIO DI CREDERE IN QUALCOSA
MANTENERE IL CONFINE
RENDERSI CONFORMI E DISPONIBILI AL SEGNO
PRENDERE PARTE ALLA MARCIA
FARE/FARSI (NELLA) CORSA/MARCIA
CAMMINARE I PASSI DEGLI ALTRI
AVVICINARSI A CIO’ CHE E’ ARCAICO/SCONOSCIUTO
MARCIARE PER CIO’ CHE TI VIENE INCONTRO
RAGGIUNGERE LA FORMA DOPO L’AZIONE
UN’IDEA CHE, MENTRE LA MARCIA AVANZA, RESTA INDIETRO

Spanish Matchbox nasce come una piattaforma della creazione contemporanea spagnola. Dopo una serie di attività internazionali, si cristallizza in un festival presso l’E&G Teater (Stamsund, Norvegia). Quest’anno, si fa un passo in avanti, Spanish matchbox si trasforma da festival a un sistema di produzione a celle, che possano essere promosse in altri incontri e in altri festival che condividano una sensibilità comune al nostro progetto, moltiplicando le possibilità di relazioni. Questa nuova forma viene inaugurata con Altofest (a Napoli), il contesto ideale per avere un primo feedback.
