Alpiner Exorzismus

dance video, 2004, DV, 61'
conceived and directed by Ines Birkhan & Bertram Dhellemmes
production Real Dance Super Sentai
with the support of Nadine & Villa Proudhon

In the meadows, in the forests, in the snowfields, on the summits, by the streams dwell and frolic the little people of the Alp mountains and some inflatable orc on its quest for absolute white.

A slow burn twisted fairy tale with askew words, songs and dance.

Angel Meat/Noughts in Dock11, Berlin > 10/11 February 2007

an instant composition performance evening curated by Real Dance Super Sentai



Angel Meat

Kyung-sun Baek: dance - Bertram Dhellemmes: music

Angel Meat is based on a feedback between artistic research and the established rock subculture that is the main background of western people. Art being for one century busy defining itself in its successive modern / postmodern / hypermodern manifestations, pop culture has been left dealing with big issues such as death, sexuality, love or metaphysic – often awkwardly, but now it's today's mythology.

A multimedia work in progress, Angel Meat opens up this mythical universe with the strategies of informal experimental performance art – the current issue involving music (Bertram Dhellemmes) and dance (Kyung-sun Baek).





Noughts

Daniel Schorno: music - Frank van de Ven: dance

'Noughts' is the platform Daniel Schorno (electronics) and Frank van de Ven (dance) created to breach boundaries of dialectics between sound, gesture, motion & video art, through improvisation of a hyper sensitive nature.

The duo uses the notion of 'nought', archaic interpretations of the term, a frantic game of 'noughts & crosses', played out to exhaustion and the inspiration of the meanings of 'zero', into performances of great delicacy and power.

Both are based in Amsterdam and are travelling and performing individually and together the world over.

L'Eve Future, work in progress presentation, Amsterdam > 10 july 2006



Eve Future

A dance and music theatre alternative adaptation
of the book by Auguste Villiers de l’Isle-Adam.


by
Bertram Dhellemmes
Margret Sara Gudjonsdottir
Esther Mugambi


L'Eve Future is a remarkable novel written in 1886 by the visionary and dandy author Auguste Villiers de l'Isle Adam. An improbable and genius meeting of decadent French romantic literature and early science-fiction, this book issued the modern myth of the artificial woman – at first the slave ofpatriarchal desire but eventually the freeing figure underlying cyberfeminism.

This 'andréide' – Hadaly – is built by an idealised Thomas Edison as a perfect lover for his friend Lord Ewald, replacing his beautiful yet shallow girlfriend. The book is awfully misogynist, not only in the idea of building a perfect woman – perfect because obedient –,but all the female characters being vile, mediocre, manipulating, only to be replaced by machines.

This adaptation of L'Eve Future for stage is based on adopting the point of view of the female protagonists of Villiers de l'Isle Adam's book to rewrite the alternative story of this creating a new woman, eventually on an agenda uncontrolled by men.

Alpiner Exorzismus in Begane Grond Festival, Den Haag, 14 > 18 april 2006



Alpiner Exorzismus

dance video, 2004, DV, 61'
conceived and directed by Ines Birkhan & Bertram Dhellemmes
production Real Dance Super Sentai
with the support of Nadine & Villa Proudhon

In the meadows, in the forests, in the snowfields, on the summits, by the streams dwell and frolic the little people of the Alp mountains and some inflatable orc on its quest for absolute white. A slow burn twisted fairy tale with askew words, songs and dances.

From the contemplation of the alpine landscapes – the last wild space in the old Europe – spring up unexpected characters, as a new pocket mythology for the deserted Alp mountains. Busy with mysterious tasks, accomplishing meticulous rituals, meeting and communicating in their rare dialect, the Kogan (maintainer of the landscape and inspired rhetorician), the Red Highlander (who strides over the mountain paths to connect his people), the Butterfly Lady (whose dances and songs fills the dreams of all) and many more invite us to penetrate their universe, while a tourist wanders in the snow fields, maybe looking for the sea, carrying an improbable inflatable blue orc.

Adopting sometimes the form of a nature documentary (you will learn on the occasion about the spiteful alpine varan), Alpiner Exorzismus is definitely built on a narrative frame – where dance takes the place of action. The Austrian dancer and choreographer Ines Birkhan interprets all the roles, basing her dance and acting on an intimate relation to the alpine landscapes – also the result of a long performing process.

Anni in 100°, HAU 1 Bühne, Berlin > 02 February 2006



Anni, der weibliche Name des Widerstands

Regie: Daniela Deinhammer
Spiel: Astrid Monet
Ausstattung: Grete Pauler
Sound design: Bertram Dhellemmes
Produktionsleitung: Pierre-Emmanuel Finzi

02/02/2006 - 21.00
HAU 1, Stresemannstrasse 29,10963 Berlin


Der Prosatext „Anni“ ist einer der sieben Berichte aus Marie-Thérèse Kerschbaumers 1980 erschienenem Buch „Der weibliche Name des Widerstands“. Unter der Prämisse, die Bedingungen des Widerstandes seien für Frauen anders darzustellen als für Männer, geht die Autorin darin dem Leben und Sterben von sieben Frauen aus Österreich im Nationalsozialismus nach und schlägt dabei eine Brücke in ihr Heute.

Auf zwei unterschiedlichen Ebenen - einer diskursiven und einer emotionalen - erzählt der Text (Annis) Geschichte; unsere Auseinandersetzung damit ist auch der Versuch, Reflexion und Kritik zu inszenieren. Eine Schaupielerin spielt die unterschiedlichen Stimmen und Wir-Chöre, die die Autorin komponiert hat: insbesondere die Stimmen / Figuren von Anni und ihrer Mutter neben dem erzählerischen Ich.
