ALPS MOVE is a festival for local dance-forms in Southern Tyrol. ALPS MOVE is a platform for contemporary dance and action theater, bringing  various dancers onto the stage of various cities (Lana, Bolzano, Brunico or Appiano).

 

The festival is an initiative of the  „Südtiroler Tanzkooperative“ (Southern Tyrolean dance-cooperative) - a consolidation of local artists who are active in the field of contemporary dance. It is ALPS MOVE’s goal to promote local dance and to establish it as a permanent cultural event in the Southern Tyrolean culture- scene.

 

Parallel to this, ALPS MOVE wishes the local dance- scene to reach out beyond the local-regional borders and establish international relations. For this reason, ALPS MOVE has exchange projects  with, for example,  Berlin, Ferrara, and Bilbao. As well, ALPS MOVE works together with international choreographers.

Youth is also the focus of ALPS MOVE’s attention: Jugend tanzt (Youth dances) has school performances thereby familiarizing the young generation with the art of dance. Young dancers are also brought actively on stage.

Dance affects the outlook of the places in which it is performed. It changes them. After a dance performance, one no longer recognizes the place - so writes Jacques Derrida in his choreographies. 

In this sense, ALPS MOVE would like to change Southern Tyrol.

PROGRAM

Dance was originally an event which took place on the streets and in public places: they were meeting places in which people would come together and exchange news.

This project is an effort to bring dance back to its origins as a daily cultural experience. It will be influenced by the surrounding architectural structures and its people. The work will base itself on structured as well as free improvisations. The identifiable will be of no interest. The substantial must lose its significance, only to reappear in a new context. We wish to open up the possibility for people to experience movement and space liberally.

 

The South-Tyrolean dance cooperative has the self-proclaimed task to promote and develop dance as a form of art in South Tyrol. At the same time, the South Tyrolean dance cooperative seeks a productive interchange with other, similar groups all over the world. Various guests were invited from Bolzano and Milano to take part in the Streetdance project.

What does it mean to grow old? What does inner growth mean? What does degeneration mean? What is the meaning of time? Life and also dance likes to present itself as an eternal fountain of youth. Old people seem to be superfluous, and death is suppressed as our society frantically tries to bring life under its control. Yet, it is this type of thinking that denies any form of vivacity.

This project explores the transformation of the body. 60 year olds will meet with 20 year olds and they will focus on the theme “ageing”. We will search amongst our collective experiences and impressions of the narrow path of life in order to find and restore that spark of vivacity that is so sorely lacking in society today.

AYJO - OHJE  In a theater the relationships are linear: the performers present, the audience watches. This relationship will be reversed in this piece. The audience is on stage and the performers are in the auditorium. The positions now are unclear: who is presenting, who is watching? A situation similar to that of a venetian mirror: I look into the mirror and see myself, but I know that the person behind the mirror also sees me. Does this person see the same image as I do?

Evelin Stadler studied at the Folkwang University of Arts in Essen, Germany and she has worked for many years as a dancer for different companies and theaters in Essen, Berlin, and Muenster. Since 2005 she has created mostly her own work as a choreographer and dancer, which she performs in Germany and Italy. She lives and works in Kassel, Germany. 

 

DENTRO LE MURA (MURATA) What do you think (feel) when you stand in the middle of a city and hear - or don’t hear – a child crying? What do you see, think, feel? What do you remember? What do the walls of the city conceal? How many walls are concealed within the core of the city? What happens behind the walls, on the skin of our own bodies, and in our souls? The micro- and the macrocosm reflect one another. The smallest vibration can transform itself into an earthquake. The walls, also the personal walls, can collapse and the silence can be heard, can find life.

Santija Bieza was born in Latvia. She studied theater production at the University of Rome 3 ( D.A.M.S.) and at the University of Rennes, during which she also worked as a dancer, performer, and actress for various productions. Her work is largely influenced by performance-arts in which various modes of expressions are utilized. She lives and works in Bolzano. 

 

GEOMORPHOSIS Life is movement through landscapes and movement with people. Landscapes and people leave their impressions on us just as we impress ourselves on them. We are formed by, and actively form, our surroundings. In this way we find traces of impressions in our movements and behaviour.

In this video installation and dance performance we will travel with the dancer through various landscapes. The dancer will interact with her surroundings. This will shed light on the aspects of being, becoming and remembering.

The Animu Dance Company views dance in connection with the visual arts. Besides showing their dance films at several screenings such as Dance Camera West in Los Angeles and Royal Academy of Music Piano Festival in London, their first piece "Into another body" was selected for the Anticorpi XL platform in Italy. In 2015 they were guest performers in Tanz Bozen.

Stairs form a passage from one place to another. The steps signify progression. All of our social tasks are oriented towards improvement. Descending stairs often imply retreat, insecurity and weakness. A descent is often accompanied by emotions of fear and resistance.

 

Sarah Merler is studying contemporary and classical dance at the Conservatory of Vienna. Although she is still immersed in her studies, she nonetheless has successfully created her own pieces, as for example "Schaufenstertanz" in Tanz Bozen.

ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT  How much can nature offer us? How much do we use/ exploit? The Ecological Footprint describes that space necessary which enables one person a lasting, lifelong lifestyle. Each person therefore leaves a different sized footprint.

ALGAS EN EL AIRE  In this short piece we study movement in its essence. What is an intake of breath? What is vibration? An emotional turbulence becomes movement, a thought about a visible and perceptible sensation. It seeps through our pores and expresses itself through the body. Sometimes the movement impulse increases, sometimes it sinks into nothingness. Algas en el aire, a study of the body.

 

Iosu Lezameta studied dance in Barcelona and has worked for several years under the direction of Sabine Dahrendorf and Alfonso Ordonez for the Company Danat. This company has performed in Europe, America and Australia. Iosu Lezameta danced in a project by Carolyn Carlson at the Biennal Arts Exhibition in Venice in 2000. He lives in South Tyrol since 1997, where he works with Veronika Riz and the dance cooperative South Tyrol. He is also founding member of Alps Move. 

 

Giulia Manzato received her Diploma for Contemporary Dance and Theater Education in 2011 at the Iwanson School for Contemporary Dance in Munich. She works with choreographers such as Patrick Delcroix, Hannes Langolf, Minka-Marie Heiss, Katja Wachter, Jessica Iwanson, Jan Kodet, and Jochen Heckmann.  

 

PRIVOLVA Privolva is the dark side of the moon, that side which doesn’t face the earth. The side which we don’t see.

In Privolva, 3 bodies move between individuality and collectivity. The bodies are dependant and functional on one another. This piece develops the choreographic hypothesis of uniform bodies, bodies that are standard features in a dystopian future. The equalization provides security for our survival but at the same time it dissolves and limits identity.

I THINK NOT In 2011 Claudia Tomasi, a dancer and choreographer, participated in the solo Performance Commissioning Project, a project choreographed by American Deborah Hay. In this project, Hay transfers her choreographies to the dancers. One of these choreographies, I Think Not, will be performed daily and in this way it is an interpretation and adaption of the original piece. In adapting this piece, Claudia Tomasi works closely together with artist\dancer- brother Benjamin Tomasi. The brother – sister duo has been working together for various years on installation -performances.

 

Claudia Tomasi studied dance and choreography in Lisbon (PEPCC) and in Berlin (HZT). She has been working with the Axis Syllabus Method since 2004. In these past years, the mountains have been a source of inspiration for her choreographies. In Jan. 2015, she was on stage in Berlin with Meg Stuart in "Formen Formen" by Julian Weber. The sister-brother duo, Claudia and Benjamin Tomasi, have been working together for three years now. 

 

LONG TIME NO SEE  A dance – performance that sheds light on the developing process of a dance piece. Of central importance is the human body and its transformation process in the here and now. Of interest is the psycho – physical presence and its possibility of transformation through dance, music, and video sequences between the public and the performance. The boundary between the stage and auditorium is dissolved and becomes a possibility for experimentation for all present. That which happens now, will not repeat itself again. It only happens once.

 

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Yungjung Kim has studied dance since her childhood. She graduated at the European Dance Development Center (Hoogeschool voor de Kunsten, Arnhem\Netherlands) in dance and choreography in 2003. Since then, she has been creative as a choreographer and dancer, performing her own pieces. She lives in Meran.

WE'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN How does it feel to be lonely? Is there a place within our bodies in which one finds this loneliness? In this performance, Sebastiàn Collado Gonzàlez comes to terms with his own loneliness experiences and with strategies to overcome loneliness. The choreography takes place on an instable and personal dancefloor: in the bathroom – in the bathtub. This piece invites everyone to actively participate.

 

Sebastián Collado González studied dance and theater in Argentina. He has performed in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Italy and Norway. He is co-founder of 77 Stolenfish, an art group in Berlin. He lives and works in Innsbruck and teaches contemporary dance in Austria and Italy. 

 

ARTIKELNR.: 0371121  In the video, 4 people dance a capella to patterns of movement. A musical grid results, an entity which orients itself on established patterns. In the foreground of the room is a solo voice which homogeneously adapts itself to other voices. Later individual characteristics appear, causing outbreaks and controversies. An examination of the themes of individuality, intransigent thinking, standards and society.

 

Katharina Schwärzer was born in Gais. She studied rhythmical and musical education at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. She is involved with performance-art, contemporary dance, and Butoh. She is a co-founder of 77 Stolenfish, an art group in Berlin and she directs and choreographs various courses and projects in different countries.
