Who am I today?

Centre Français de Berlin

Centre Français de Berlin

Address: Müllerstraße 74, 13349 Berlin, Germany Map

To kick off the session, the group and Jo Mangan, using her own background as an artist, producer, curator and activist, will examine the advantages of what can sometimes disparagingly be referred to as a portfolio career.

The session is designed to respond to the growing necessity for artists to take the creativity of the rehearsal room into other aspects of their work. This in-depth session will explore ways to find a path that will allow us to  create meaningful work in a seemingly never-ending hustle of funding applications, pitching, and networking. The focus will be on identifying opportunities masquerading as insurmountable problems.

In this session, Virve Sutiten will guide the group in exploring how to develop artistically-curated international programmes starting from key and urgent questions: 

  • What will international collaborations and exchanges look like in the future?
  • What are the challenges of the climate crisis on touring and producing?
  • How can we work with sustainability and diversity in local and international contexts?

HAU 2

HAU 2

Address: Hallesches Ufer 32, 10963 Berlin-Kreuzberg | Map

As part of the Campus experience, we will go and see the performance Doughnuts by Toshiki Okada together, from the programme of the festival Theatertreffen.

Performance in German with English subtitles.

In a hotel lobby, several guests are waiting for a taxi to take them to a conference. Outside, an increasingly dense fog envelops the city; inside, the waiting experts are conducting carefully assessing, looped discussions on how to proceed. Should they continue to wait for the taxi or try to find an alternative? Director and author Toshiki Okada and his cast have created a show of perfectly balanced rhythm and choreography, where verbal and physical acrobatics go hand in hand and there is still room for interpretation.

The performance will be followed by a talk with the artists.

Watch the trailer for Doughnuts here.

Producing in an international context

Centre Français de Berlin

Centre Français de Berlin

Address: Müllerstraße 74, 13349 Berlin, Germany | Map
  
Producing in an inter-/transnational context means first and foremost building connections. It also means dealing with a wide range of questions: 

  • What supports me in embracing this complexity, and where is my room for creative leeway?
     
  • What do I want to keep in mind, and what do I choose to unlearn? 
     
  • Which questions are helpful in developing inter-/transnational work?
     
  • Where can I start, and what are my motivations? 

This session is an invitation to approach this complexity together and explore the reasons for wanting to work internationally.

Inclusion, Diversity and Equality: Where are we heading?

Centre Français de Berlin

Centre Français de Berlin

Address: Müllerstraße 74, 13349 Berlin, Germany | Map

As phenomenology teaches us, there is no one universal world. Our perspective informs our perception. Therefore, we create a self by relating to what we might, or tend to, consider as not ourselves. This process occurs through a fabric of interrelationality and intersectionality within and with-out very vibrant power dynamics. 

  • Who counts as being in our world?
     
  • Who is doing the counting? 
     
  • How much are we each willing to change our own world to coexist with others? 
     
  • How do artists, and those working with them, navigate the multidimensionality of subjectivity and subject position? 

This session will offer a context in which together we will address these burning questions. By sharing our particular experiences, perhaps we will learn of alternative ways to participate in alternative worlds.

Performance at Performing Arts Festival: How to kill a Fascist? (Felix Meyer-Christian)

Ballhaus Ost

Ballhaus Ost

Address: Pappelallee 15, 10437, Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg | Map

As part of the Campus experience, the group will go and see the performance How to kill a Facist?, directed by Felix Meyer-Christian.

Performance in German, French and Spanish with English subtitles.

Is there a just tyrannicide? A justifiable militant resistance? An ethical terrorism

Costa Compagnie follows the path of Monika Ertl with cautious skepticism and questionable admiration. The daughter of Leni Riefenstahl’s cinematographer joined the Bolivian Liberation Army at the end of the 1960s and executed the officer who had Che Guevara and his successor killed.

Can anti-fascism go that far? The team filmed in the Bavarian Alps, in Paris and Lyon, in La Paz and the Andes and spoke with famous Nazi hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld, as well as survivors of torture under Bolivia’s military dictatorship. Political convictions, justice, vengeance and the quest for power – actress Karin Enzler (Switzerland), punk musician Stéphanie Morin (France) and choreographer Maque Pereyra (Bolivia) fight their way through history to the present in three cinematic-performative solos.

The Costa Compagnie from Berlin creates intermedial works that combine documentary, performative and choreographic methods and are realized in immersive performances as well as in virtual reality and film. Their work focuses on global political conflicts and upheavals and looks at those people that are otherwise often underrepresented in art, media and politics. Therefore, the group has researched and filmed in Afghanistan, Israel, Iraq, the USA, Fukushima/Japan, Mozambique, South Sudan and Lebanon, among other places.
