The Orchestra of Futurist Noise Intoners

December 3, 2013
Tuesday, December 3, 2013 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: Los Angeles premiere

In the 100th anniversary year of Futurist Luigi Russolo’s manifesto, The Art of Noises, The Orchestra of Futurist Noise Intoners (Luciano Chessa, Director) performs on the only complete reconstruction of Russolo’s earliest Intonarumori Orchestra, commissioned by Performa. Hand-cranked instruments designed to produce “noises”—the first instruments capable of creating and manipulating sound through entirely mechanical processes—generate sounds of whirrs and buzzes, clangs, scrapes, sirens and mechanically plucked strings. The program includes historical compositions by Russolo and Paolo Buzzi, as well as newly composed works by Chessa, Ulrich Krieger, Joan La Barbara, Annie Lewandowski, Theresa Wong (all also performing) and others, and features tenor Timur Bekbosunov, soprano Carmina Escobar and 16 players operating the instruments under Chessa’s baton.

Yael Davids: 'A Reading that Writes - a Physical Act II'

December 6, 2013 - December 22, 2013
Friday, December 6, 2013 - 9:00am - Sunday, December 22, 2013 - 8:00pm

REDCAT: Gallery performances:
Friday, December 6, 8pm (followed by reception)
Sunday, December 8, 4:30pm

For her first U.S. solo presentation, Amsterdam-based artist Yael Davids develops a new performance installation exploring how, through reading, a text is written and composed. Considering the possibilities of performance documentation, Davids addresses the relationship between historical and political contexts and the construction of social and personal subjectivities. She treats the elements, narratives and objects of her past performances as components of an artistic palette that reappear in different configurations, experimenting with the multiple possibilities of the material in an evolving body of work. Besides her interest in the documentation of her exhibitions, Davids explores the performative presence of the body and how it defines space and the relationships between things, places and temporalities. In her work, Davids attempts to turn her own existential experience and the memories of ephemeral, fleeting presence into a definitive shape—a shape that can be comprehended as an art work and thus become a voice in public discussion, rather than remain an intimate and personal story only.

Yael Davids (born in Kibbutz Tzuba, Israel, 1968), based in Amsterdam, studied Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, sculpture studies at the Pratt Institute (New York) and dance pedagogy at the Remscheid Academy (Germany). Her work will be shown in an upcoming exhibition at Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Hamburg. Recent solo shows include Ficisismos, Universidad di Tella, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2013); Galerie Diana Stigter, Amsterdam (2013); M - Museum, Leuven (2012); Circus Gallery, Berlin (2012); Kunsthalle Basel (2011); Picture This, Bristol (2010); If I Can’t Dance Tonight, Frascati Theatre, Amsterdam (2009); Project Mechelen, organized by MuHKA Antwerp as part of All that is Solid, Mechelen (2008); Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp (2008); and Laura Bartlett Gallery, London (2008). She has also shown in group exhibitions such as: Fisicismos, Universidad di Tella, Buenos Aires (2013); Kunsthaus Dresden (2012); If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2010); The 2nd Herzliya Biennial, Herzliya, Tel Aviv (2009); Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella, Italy (2009); Tate Modern, London (2008); ICA, London (2007).

CalArts, Butler Building #2

THEATER: Peter Handke's celebrated play, Kaspar, explores the tension between individual identity and that which is imposed by society. Director Rafael Lopez-Barrantes has interpolated modern phrases to additionally incorporate the impact of modern media. The play is based on the real life of Kaspar Hauser, who ventured into Nuremberg in 1814 able to speak only one sentence after years of forced seclusion. The production employs rhythmic movement and sound to further represent the overwhelming torrent of information that Hauser had to absorb the to reenter the world.

THEATER: When Spring Comes to Hills and Dales
Written by In Hun Choi
Translated by Sun Ah Jung

Arranged and directed by Yong Suk Yoo

Through timeless Korean folklore rooted in poetry and movement, When Spring Comes to Hills and Dales reveals the life of a family torn by the ailments of traditional society. Faced with the restraints of loneliness, loss and love, we follow the family's journey for freedom of a different lens—while dreaming with familial intricacies of their own. In this American premiere, Korean director Yong Suko Yoo challenges the elements of design and transnational experiences through the power of storytelling, contemporary Korean culture and the exchange of cultural practices and ideas.

Grégory Castéra: 'The Encyclopedia of the Spoken Word'

December 9, 2013
Monday, December 9, 2013 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm

REDCAT:
Lecture: Monday, December 9, 6:30-7:30pm
FREE

The Encyclopedia of the Spoken Word is a research project exploring the spoken word in all its forms. Since 2007, a group of musicians, poets, directors, visual artists, actors, sociolinguists, and curators, have been collecting all sorts of recordings of words and then indexing them on the website www.encyclopediedelaparole.org according to their particular properties or phenomena such as cadence, chorality, emphasis, saturation or melody. The Encyclopedia of the Spoken Word doesn't claim to be an exhaustive or scientific collection of sounds, languages and discourses, or of their infinite combinations. Rather—as much as any aesthetic object can—it tries to be an interdisciplinary tool for oral practitioners.

What do the following have in common: the poetry of Marinetti, the dialogues of Louis de Funès, a horse racing commentary, a lecture by Jacques Lacan, an excerpt from South Park, the flow of Eminem and Lil Wayne, a message left on an answering machine, Julien Lepers' questions, an Adventist sermon, The Young and the Restless dubbed in French, a speech by Léon Blum or Bill Clinton, an auction, a shamanic incantation, Sarah Bernhardt's declamations, a defense speech by Jacques Vergès, an advert for shampoo and conversations recorded in a local café?

From this collection, which now includes about 800 sound documents, The Encyclopedia of the Spoken Word produces exhibitions, sound pieces, performances, shows, lectures and games. Currently in 2013, the Encyclopédie de la parole has brought together Frédéric Danos, Emmanuelle Lafon, Nicolas Rollet, Joris Lacoste, Grégory Castéra, David Christoffel, Valérie Louys and Elise Simonet.

Grégory Castéra is co-director of Council, an agency for research and artistic production that explores the relations between arts, sciences, philanthropy and politics. He served as co-director of Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilles, Paris from 2010 to 2012. Over this period he conducted various research projects on discourse formation within artistic practices, giving rise to publishing projects, shows, events and exhibitions. In 2010, he initiated On Ecologies of Art Practices (awarded the Hors les Murs grant by the Institut Français in 2013). He holds a Bachelor degree in Economics (University of Tours) and a Masters in Design and Implementation of Cultural Projects (Sorbonne, Paris 1).

Based on fragments from Günther Anders’ novel The Molussian Catacomb, written between 1932 and 1936, Nicolas Rey’s captivating nine-part film presents allegorical stories and musings by political prisoners sitting in the pits of an imaginary fascist state called Molussia. Shown in random order whenever it is screened, the film’s sections ruminate on capitalism, imperialism and resistance—accompanied by gritty, unsettling self-processed images of undefined landscapes. A haunting and moving meditation on brutality and control, autrement, la Molussie has galvanized audiences at festivals throughout the world. Since 1993 Rey has been making films that hover between photography, documentaries and the avant-garde. He is one of the founders of the Paris-based artist film lab L’Abominable.

Structuring Strategies Presents Mady Schutzman

DEAR COMRADE

Dear Comrade (2013) is a feature length, essay film inspired by a significant moment in California’s 'utopian' history: the creation of Llano del Rio, one of California’s most successful secular cooperative colonies. The community was founded by renowned socialist Job Harriman in 1914 and after 4 extraordinary years in the Mojave desert of California, only 75 miles from Los Angeles, colonists moved to New Llano in central Louisiana and flourished until 1937.

Dear Comrade documents this collective enterprise through a tour of the California ruins, photos and recollections of local historians and residents, voices of former colonists, and scholars of California history. However, the primary focus of the film resides not so much in the past as in the musings, questions, courage, frustrations, fantasies, and labors of many before and after Llano who have assumed comparable struggles—to forego economic and political security to craft an alternative society. Through the intersection of three different stories, a seemingly traditional documentary film morphs into a montage of parallel universes, historical re-enactments, clownery, political commentary, and a palpable desire—failings and disappointments notwithstanding—to give idealism and cooperation another try.

Mady Schutzman (Ph.D. Performance Studies, NYU) is a writer, scholar and theatre artist. She has published essays and performance texts in several journals including The Drama Review, Women and Performance, Theatre Topics, The Journal of Medical Humanities, American Communication Journal, Black Clock and Cargo, as well as in several critical anthologies. Her book The Real Thing: Performance, Hysteria, and Advertising (Wesleyan, 1999) is a feminist critique of the iconography of the female body in popular advertising. A renowned practitioner and scholar of the techniques of Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed (TO), Schutzman is co-editor of Playing Boal: Theatre, Therapy, Activism (Routledge, 1994) and A Boal Companion: Dialogues on Theatre and Cultural Politics (Routledge, 2006), and teaches the TO work at USC and Pacifica Graduate Institute, as well as at CalArts. She will be bringing her CalArts TO students to work with underprivileged youth in Santarém, Brazil, during the summer of 2012.

Schutzman has been a faculty advisor for MFA writers in CalArts’ Community Arts Partnership (CAP) since 1996. In collaboration with CAP, her play Upset! (written with the youth participants of Plaza de la Raza) received a Los Angeles Ovation Award in 2006 following its production at Plaza and REDCAT.

She recently completed a feature-length documentary essay film, Dear Comrade, inspired by one of California's most successful secular cooperative colonies, Llano del Rio. The film employs documentary conventions to tell the story of Llano, but also borrows heavily from Schutzman’s performance background: documentary subjects not only perform as themselves, but explicitly play and re-imagine themselves through improvisation and scripted scenes. Schutzman received a Dean’s Discretionary Fund Grant for Dear Comrade, which has screened in NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Portland, OR and is headed to Toronto in February.

Charlie Haden’s CalArts Liberation Music Orchestra

December 10, 2013
Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: “No other bass player since Charles Mingus has seemed so thoroughly joined to the instrument.” —The Atlantic

NEA Jazz Master and Legendary Bassist Charlie Haden, who founded the Jazz Studies program at CalArts in 1982, conducts CalArts musicians in compositions from Haden’s groundbreaking Liberation Music Orchestra, a large jazz ensemble that he formed in 1969. With innovative and dynamic arrangements by Carla Bley, the orchestra features experimental harmonies and improvisation for a wide palette of brass instruments and piano, bass, guitar, percussion and drums. The ensemble’s body of work has reflected Haden’s political concerns, including juxtaposing music from the Spanish Civil War, African National Congress and other folk music while exploring the realms of free jazz.

Paul Brach Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Charles Ray

December 12, 2013
Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

CalArts, F200

ART: Charles Ray is widely regarded as one of the most significant artists of his generation. He is best known for his sculptures of altered and refashioned familiar objects. In 1993 Ray made Firetruck, a 12-by-47-foot replica of a toy fire truck, which he "parked" infront of the Whitney Museum of American Art during that year's biennial exhibition. In 2007 the artist completed a ten-year project—a re-creation in Japanese cypress (Hinoki)of a fallen and rotting tree he had found in a meadow, hand carved by Japanese masterwood workers. Most recently, Ray installed Boy with Frog, his first outdoor commissioned work, at the Punta della Dogana, Venice. Grand in size and realized with a smooth white finish that references the important tradition of marble sculpture in Italy, it depicts aboy holding a goliath frog above the Grand Canal.
