Ishmael Houston-Jones @ Tanz Im August
Conversation with Ishmael Houston-Jones (dance maker from New York City) about the piece THEM performed within the content of Tanz Im August 2012 festival in Berlin, Germany.
THEM« is an intensely physical interdisciplinary work that presents an unblinking look into the lives of young (gay) men. Conceived and directed by Ishmael Houston-Jones, »THEM« features early texts by famed writer / provocateur Dennis Cooper and a cacophonous live electric guitar sound score by Chris Cochrane. Houston-Jones’ choreography, while rooted in improvisation, develops the themes of connections that never quite happen, grappling and wrestling that seem inconsequential and ineffective, and support that disappears.
Produced by marlon barrios solano for dance-tech.tv and .net

HZT Berlin BA Festival Opening, Berlin Germany Opening speech and the release the first issue of “BEWEGUNGSTEXTE”, a magazine with texts by HZT Berlin students dealing with “EMERGENCE”. produced by marlon barrios solano
I was in residency at HZT Berlin BA Festival where BA students developed a self-organized festival. THi the HZT program, the students are in charge of all the production aspects and also in how the manage their participation in workshops and their instructional activities.
They were having problems to decide collectively who would take a Meg Stuart workshop with a limited amount of seats.
I was able to get some images of the bow of the artists and some words of the producers.

Transformance is a video-event-work that activates and documents a five-month durational performance. Over this period of time, Nina Kurtela establishes a daily practice of visiting and witnessing the changes at the building site of the Uferstudios, Wedding, Berlin – the warehouse for the repair of public trams and buses becomes a dance institution. She is spectator to the making of an institution, an art institution, the making of the theater stage. The camera acts as a witness to her performing/witnessing.
