NETTE – A kinesic experiment – Artemis Pyrpilis 1024 1024 akropoditi13

NETTE – A kinesic experiment – Artemis Pyrpilis

Greece

The project “ΝΕΤΤΕ: a kinesic experiment” is the result of the Artistic Residency of the photographer Artemis Pyrpili under the Artistic Residency Program of the Akropoditi Dance and Performing Arts Centre (2022-2023) with the topic: Covid-19: Our silence, our voice
It is based on the homonymous photo book of the creator.
Is an attempt to record a kinetic improvisation with a starting point and in interaction with archival images of Nette, in motion. The kinetic expression will be structured in the natural landscape of Syros (in coherence with nature as a background in the archival images) allowing any result that can arise through this internal “fermentation” of experimentation/improvisation based on the interaction with the kinetic expression of her grandmother.
The aim is to further connect the personal relationship between granddaughter and grandmother, but also to explore the broader connection between photography and dance.
The final result will be a video that includes both the archival images and the recording of the kinetic experimentation as through this it will apprehend the expression and physicality of Nette while exploring the movement through its recording.

Description:
In 2019, seven years after her grandmother’s passing, Artemis Pyrpilis went for the first time to the house where her grandmother was born and spent her childhood. Searching through the rooms, drawers and boxes she discovered previously unseen pictures of her when she was a young girl in the 40s. A dancer, a gymnast, a restless girl whom her closed ones called Nette. Who was Nette really and what was her connection to her?
Artemis Pyrpilis decided to interact with these archival images through her body.
The shared silence, from the inevitability of her death, slowly became a reason to find their common voice for all the things she did not know united them.

Whatever Grandma Says

Three anthropologists enter Grandma’s kitchen to observe how dance moves the aging female body. Grandma Keti refuses to follow and puts on a performance — against language, age and cultural barriers — sharing life stories and love advice. This film is an ode to the magic of the encounter, the in-progress relationships, and the beauty of the fieldwork uncertainty. This film was made during the Athens Summer School in Visual Ethnographic Practices of 2022 organised by Ethnofest – Athens Ethnographic Film Festival in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam.

Jenthe Blockx is a Master’s student in Visual Culture and Film Studies at the University of Antwerp. She has conducted research on transnational, intimate relationships in times of COVID-19, for the completion of her Master’s degree in Social and Cultural anthropology at KULeuven. In future research, she is interested in further exploring visual and sensorial ethnographic practices.

Marianna Panourgia is a contemporary dancer, dance educator and ethnochoreologist based in Piraeus, Greece. She holds a Contemporary Dance Teaching Diploma and a Master of Arts in Ethnochoreology. Currently, she is a PhD candidate with focus on the ethnographic archiving oral traditions of contemporary dance whitin Higher Contemporary Dance Education in Greece.

Melia Weltzien recently obtained her Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology at VU Amsterdam. She has conducted research on representation practices and structures of exclusion in both German media and Amsterdam’s Art World. Through ethnographic filmmaking, she will continue questioning the issue of whose stories are being told and heard after all, aiming at more inclusive forms of storytelling.

Feeling from Outside

In October 2007 a group of artists of different nationalities took the initiative to set up a flamenco tablao in front of the Cathedral of Seville, claiming the street as a place of work and expression of their feelings. The street becomes their stage and the reception of the people consolidates their presence as a street flamenco group under the name “Son de Afuera”. This short documentary film bears witness, in the context of Andalusian society, to a way of feeling flamenco from “outside”.

Konstantina Bushboura (she/hers) is an independent researcher, anthropologist, filmmaker and human rights activist. Since 2007 she has been researching, directing and producing ethnographic documentaries on dance, politics and activism in Buenos Aires, Seville and Athens (Feeling from Outside, 2008, 18″, ESP / Working Dancers, 2017, 72″, ARG-GR, / 36 Months-Fighting for Zak, 2022, 12″). She is a founding member of the Buenos Aires-based educational and artistic organization ACA and coordinator of the Gender Network at the Greek Department of Amnesty International.

equi- +‎ Latin lux (“light”).
A day in which the durations of light and darkness are equal.
Equilux is a lasting struggle in a continuous motion, between day and night, light and darkness, black and white to keep humanity,
nature and every form of life in balance against any form of inequality.

Muros / Walls

Father and son. Secrets unsaid and unembraced grudges separate them.
A wall that guards silences, withheld tears, glances and shy contact.
The lack of communication.
In spite of it, the desire to embrace everything because they are the same story.

【Reviews】
“Kopitoto” is lighthearted and weird, invoking hidden forest creatures and the life of a wintry Japanese wood itself. It’s the unholy alliance of Willy Wonka and an ‘80s Residents video (without the menace but with 100 times the technical skill). ”
– Los Angeles Times (written by Michael Ordoña, January 8, 2020)
latimes.com/entertainment-arts/movies/story/2020-01-08/dance-camera-west-film-festival

“Bushy eyebrows, bumpy costumes, a blue-lipped winter spirit and a landscape with lots of snow. The Japanese Kusanagi Sisters, who are inspired by the French film pioneer George Méliès, among others, combine a sense of humor with an eye for detail. Thanks to Cinedans, we can enjoy their short film at home during the first lockdown. Cheerful.”
– Het Parool Amsterdam-based daily newspaper (written by Jacq Algra, December 23, 2021)

Whole 

W-hole is a dialogue between a body, music and space through movement.
Playing on the ambiguity of the homophones “whole” and “hole”, it traces out the evanescence of the self and the effort to understand and fulfill one’s self through a journey where the imaginary and the real overlap.

Herbarium – Zielnik

The Polish Dance Theatre was founded in 1973, it is professional and autonomic collective, it’s countenance evolved from the ballet-shaped spectacle forms to contemporary genres: dance theatre, characterized by crossing over genres, as well as technical and stylistic borders, liberating itself from traditional methods of expression, leaning toward interdisciplinarity, pursuing new theatre spaces and improvisation based process of creation.

MATAKI 

Until the awakening, the Baju tribe had long forgotten this art, a form of expression that brings solace, togetherness and joy. This call re-unites the tribe as they move to rhythm, passing through space and time, following that one voice that leads them back to their purpose.

Bboys X Ballet Variation 

Concept & Direction: Joseph Simon Camera: Conni Trommlitz & Maiko v.d. Horst
Edit: Conni Trommlitz
Bboys: Kid Colombia, Tawfiq, Conni Produced by: Dansateliers Rotterdam

This is a pilot project for a series of encounters between Ballet and other dance cultures. This is part of my larger body of work “ballet fantasies” in which I search for alternative forms and identities for ballet through intercultural dance encounters. Inspired by sociology and cultural studies, I call these spaces of encounter and mutual affect “Third culture spaces”. They are a liminal space that emerges from the interaction between the different values, aesthetics and philosophies of the cultures behind the dances.

Xeno is the smallest measurable unit of human connection, typically exchanged between passing strangers—a flirtatious glance, a sympathetic nod, moments that are fleeting and random but still contain powerful emotional nutrients that can alleviate the symptoms of feeling alone.

WEAKNESS OF THE FLESH

| Direction: Kevin McGloughlin, Jacob Jonas | Choreography: Jacob Jonas • USA • 6′

Concrete, when dry, cemented and stuck. The body, delicate. When the mind is pushed, the potential of the defense system is revealed. Blank canvases and raw environments. The complexities of human nature exposed. Depth of understanding to the natural course. Society’s normality can’t enslave us. The mind pushes to the body. The mind pushes towards the weak flesh. A rebound effect that continues. This is a universal temptation that repeats through time.

Τι γίνετε όταν η ρουτίνα και η επανάληψη παίρνουν μορφή σε ένα διαφορετικό περιβάλλον;
