÷ upDate Claudia Robles Tejo Janssen ::
Lecture, ZKM_Cube 6pm:
The Columbian Claudia Robles, currently artist in residence at the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics, is interested in the unpredictable. Her works are not representations of the existent, but rather question the relationship between forms and their meaning; they conjure up spaces that are alive, creative expressions of the instantaneous. In her lecture, Claudia Robles will show excerpts from her work and present her installation SEED/TREE
Lecture, ZKM_Cube 7pm:
Choreographer and dancer Tejo Janssen studied with the founders of Butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. In his lecture he examines the origins and characteristics of this mythical/mystical dance-form in images of nature, mental images, experiences and memories expressed or alluded to through sparing movement [more]

÷ Audiovisual installation/ Butoh performance »SEED/TREE« :: Butoh, a modern expressive dance-form developed in Japan in the 1960s, describes the cycle of birth, life and death. This is also a central theme in Claudia Robles’ artistic work. She works with improvisation, experimentation with time, space, rhythm, dynamics and form. In »SEED/TREE« feelings, associations, mental images and spontaneous impulses are the starting point for the creation of stories, games, and choreography. The breathing and heartbeat of two of the performers produce a sound that is continuously modified by the muscular tension of a third dancer. The movements of the audience in the room also influence the video projections. The results are instantaneous creations, expressions of the moment, with image, movement and music forming living signs in space [more]
