A two-day meeting and exchange and a professional platform for the various forms of physical expression in and out of Berlin's performance scene, open to all cultural communities, gender and people.

PERTANZFORM is designed as an “open-access” project. This means that there are no closed doors at the beginning of the event. Visitors can freely walk through the different rooms and get involved in the ritual of the program, stroll around in the large room and foyer of the TanzRaum Wedding, find a performance, watch an installation or a preparation: a live art factory. Art and culture should be shared, that’s why we do it.

2018_12_Research_A Silent Room-2

2018年秋は、再びリサーチをしていました。
今回はショーイングなしで、スタジオでの試行錯誤。
10月のリサーチでサブ・トピックとなった家族の移動の歴史を動きのテーマとし、
映像は、白黒のライブ・イラストレーションと組み合わせてみました。
まだ、本題を扱うためのトピックには出会いきっていない感がありますが、
新たな局面が見えてきました。

Yuko Matsuyama Research A Silent Room -Dunkelheit, Leer, Schweigen- 
Documentation 2018 - 2. 

Topic: Movement history of own family. 
Question: Use projected ‘darkness’ to stimulate the body to explore the topic? 
Reflect yourself (Movement history of own family) into the darkness, silence and emptiness.

2018_07_4_SuicideHotelNirwana

SUICIDE HOTEL NIRWANA by Ren Saibara at Vierte Welt Berlin
Preview on 9. + 10. June, Performance 4 & 5 + 7 – 9 July
2018年夏は、ベルリン在住の西原れんさん演出の作品に出演しました。
以前から気になっていた俳優さんのますだいっこうさん、そして、演出家でもある俳優のヤスパー・チベとの共演でした。
夏は、納涼の様に、ドラマトゥルグのマルティナと5人、ひたすら、自殺について考えていました。

冬には、大学院に残ってドキュメンタリーシアターの講義を受けていたのですが、
れんさんの作品作りに共通することが多く、
講義から即、実践と言った感じで、刺激的な夏でした。


-Official Text-

Der Freitod, der im christlich geprägten Europa als Sünde gilt oder als Folge seelischer Erkrankung, ist in Japan eine ehrwürdige Geste, mit der das Ich sein Recht auf Entscheidungsfreiheit wahrnimmt.

 
 
Die philosophisch unterwanderte Science-Fiction Komödie der japanischen Regisseurin Ren Saibara greift diesen kulturellen Unterschied auf. Das Konzept des Suicide-Hotel Nirwana macht sich Foucaults Idee zu eigen und schafft einen Raum für den Freitod: Ein Start-Up sieht die Zeichen der Zeit und macht sich fernab der leistungsorientierten Gegenwart zur Aufgabe, den europäischen Markt für eine ehrwürdige Selbstbestimmung über das eigene Leben zu erschließen. Das neue Firmenkonzept will den zahlreich erwarteten Kunden das nötige Knowhow vermitteln und ihnen die Begegnung mit Gleichgesinnten ermöglichen. Ziel des Start-Up-Unternehmens ist, die positive Einstellung der Japaner zum Suizid in Europa salonfähig zu machen.  
Inspiriert und angereichert mit Fakten aus dem japanischen Bestseller „The Complete Manual of Suicide“ von Wataru Tsurumi hinterfragt das japanisch-deutsche Ensemble in „Suicide Hotel Nirwana“ ganz pragmatisch den Freitod als ästhetische und verantwortungsvolle Praxis des Lebens.

2018_05_01_Gino Robair

1.Mai 2018 Gino Robair „Neither Confirmed Nor Denied“
2018年メーデーに、アメリカの即興音楽の芸術家、Gino Robairさんのパフォーマンスに参加しました。
教会を使って、詳細に組まれたストラクチャー・インプロビゼーションを1時間半かけて多数のアーティストと行う、
という趣旨でした。天井の高い教会で天井に吸い込まれそうになりながら、あちこちから聞こえる音を体感しながら踊りました。
アクシデントもありましたが、ジノさんの音楽感に触れられたのが、嬉しいイベントでした。


- Official Text-  
Neither Confirmed Nor Denied *An opera of coded information by Gino Robair; with:
Breeda CC, Myriam Doumi, Rudi Fischerlehner, Ronald Gonko, Anita Groschen, Cédric Houplin, Mareike Hube, Herman Herman, Boris Joens, Phoebee Killdeer, Jens Lowitzsch, Yuko Matsuyama, Misha Ognianer, Natalia Palshina, Lukas Pfeiffer, Theda Weber-Lucks.

Neither Confirmed Nor Denied (NCND) is a one-act opera inspired by the mysterious "number stations" heard on shortwave radio frequencies throughout the world since the late '40s. Typically, these stations broadcast a voice (human or synthesized) reading strings of numbers, and sometimes words from the International Phonetic Alphabet (e.g., Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, etc.). Often, the coded information is surrounded by an identifier—repeated phrases in the form of electronic tones or a looped section from a folk tune or classical work. Because of this, many stations have been given colorful names based on their identifiers—The Lincolnshire Poacher, Swedish Rhapsody, Bulgarian Betty, and Papa November, to name just a few.

It is widely believed that the stations may be providing coded messages between an intelligence service and its agents in the field. Judging by the variety of languages used in these broadcasts, it is presumed that government agencies across the globe use them. Some people speculate that many stations, if not all of them, are a decoy, distraction, or noise in the sense that there is no meaning; the stations are being used to exhaust the resources of their enemies.

NCND is inspired by the individual characteristics of such stations. But rather than make an exact replica of the stations, I analyzed them in terms of their formal structure. This was reduced to a set of basic components that could be used to code other kinds of information; in this case, the libretto for the opera.  For this event, the performers will be situated throughout the church, each with a unique score that is analogous to a number station. As these sets of instructions are carried out (aurally as well as visually) over the length of the performance, the coded story unfolds.

As with all one-time transmissions, the pages of the score will be collected and destroyed after the performance.
