Cyborg Dancing by Luka Švajda: Matèrie ecrite and immediate irreality

Improspections invited Luka Švajda to share his artistic research project with students of the Department of Animation and New Media and the Department of Dance, within a four-day workshop and a public presentation.

As a part of the larger research project investigating how dance operates as a meaning-making mechanism, the workshop focused on the notions of matèrie ecrite (written matter) and immediate irreality. Matèrie ecrite is an invention of the French avant-garde artist Pierre Guyotat; however, this oratory, visceral, and rhythmic lexicon (i.e., a method of writing) was repurposed, allowing to experiment with different forms and media.

Close encounters of the dance kind by Laura Kirshenbaum: Faune/ In the garden

The lab embarked on a sensorial exploration in Zagreb’s botanical garden, using the different physical and vocal tools that were at hand in the artistic research of Faune/in the garden.

The garden is a vibrant and vivid ecosystem where multiple events take place; everything, everywhere, all at once: Participants opened up their field of vision – from the insect perspective to what’s there – on top of trees, the skin took an active part in the garden’s landscape and imaginative ears covered each centimetre of our bodies in order to tune in to the lowest sound, touch introduced us to the plant’s textures and their different shapes.

Alone and together, close to the plants and to each other, participants were traveling in the garden’s paths and its ever-changing tempor(e)alities.
