Première PUST / Exhale


DanseFestival Barents
Arctic Culture Centre, Hammerfest (NO)

This project has its starting point in a movement we all share: breathing. Through dance, installation art and electronic music and by roles between performer and audience which are sliding and shifting, we hope to move from an I to a we, from individual to community. The project seeks to strengthen the self-esteem through community as a starting point. A multitude of unique breath. The project seeks to create a space where the public will own habits and BREATHE conscious to contribute to greater freedom of action, individually and collectively.

Idea: Liv Hanne Haugen - Concept: Lawrence Malstaf and Liv Hanne Haugen - Composer and musician: Per Martinsen - Installation and light: Lawrence Malstaf - Dance and voice: Liv Hanne Haugen - Text: Vibeke Thorp - Producer: Anne Katrine Haugen - Consultant: Margunn Kilde - Production: Haugen Productions

tele-present water draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. The wave intensity and frequency collected from the buoy is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure, resulting in a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant location. This work physically replicates a remote experience and makes observation of the activity of an isolated object possible through direct communication.

David Bowen - growth modeling device - 2009
This system uses lasers to scan an onion plant from one of three angles. As the plant is scanned a fuse deposition modeler in real-time creates a plastic model based on the information collected. The device repeats this process every twenty-four hours scanning from a different angle. After a new model is produced the system advances a conveyor approximately 17 inches so the cycle can repeat. The result is a series of plastic models illustrating the growth of the plant from three different angles.

Amsterdam (NL) - Kortrijk (B) - Gent (B)

What an amazing, obsessive show!
Drawing from fifteen years of creative experience between Europe and Asia, Arco Renz throws his body to create seemingly alien movements, yet part of our artistic and cultural background. 
EAST exposes and simultaneously shakes up the stereotyped portrayals of the differences between East and West. We are in another world, our body and soul engaged in a thrilling dialogue with the surrounding lights, the staging and the music played live.
The performance evolves inside 'Spheres', an installation by Lawrence Malstaf.

Britt Hatzius - Blind Cinema

28.09.2016 - 30.09.2016

STUK Start - Cinema ZED
Leuven (B)

In the darkness of a cinema space, the audience sits blindfolded. Behind each row of audience members is a row of children who in hushed voices describe a film only they can see. Accompanied by the soundtrack, the whispered descriptions are a fragile, fragmentary and at times struggling but courageous attempt by the children to make sense of what they see projected on the screen for the first time. Blind Cinema makes us aware of the possibilities and limits of language and our imagination.

Each night, the film is performed by a new group of children between 9 and 11 years old. In focusing on that which lies beyond the sense of sight, the attention oscillates between one’s own mind’s eye, guided by the whispering voice, and the shared physical space of the darkened cinema.

In collaboration with Artforum
