SoundLab #3 – Seeing Sound – curated by Caroline Daish and Julie Pfleiderer, is 10 days investigating the border between Sound and Performance.
Where do they meet? Where do the two artistic communities meet? Who manages to cross or move within both areas and how? What type of work or encounter does this create? What is the body of knowledge around this?
We would like to approach this in the context of Soundwalks, inviting an expansive definition of the form Soundwalk.
First week: 14th – 18th May. 15 – 18h each day. Walking, listening, talking. Different locations moving through Brussels + Constant, nadine, Pianofabriek.
We have invited 10 artists to present a walk or talk about performance and sound, composing and using ‘found sounds’. Artists include Joanna Bailie, Paul Craenen, Caroline Daish, David Helbich, Roel Heremans, Simon Loeffler, Noid, Julie Pfleiderer, Carlotta Scioldo & Jason Sweeney.
The complete program for the first week with venues and content for each walk and talk is available next week. It is open for everyone interested and free of charge. Please subscribe for each day under: firstname.lastname@example.org
Second week: 21st – 23rd May, 10-17h: Workshop with Ant Hampton. “Fantasy Interventions” is a workshop on imagination and writing for site-specific theatre and live urban interventions. For artists and practitioners from a wide variety of backgrounds – theatre-makers, sound artists, actors/directors, as well as choreographers, stage-designers, architects, poets and writers.
What can assist us in conceiving performance for locations outside theatre buildings? What sort of imagination is required for this kind of performance? What does it mean to balance fantasy with feasibility?
With a focus on observation imagination and writing and involving walks in the city, discussion, film and photography the workshop culminates with a series of presentations.
