– Rotative memory, new performance premiere at Spektrum, Berlin –
Presented premiere show in Spektrum Berlin, Germany, june 2016
“Rotative memory” is the shadow tale of the infinite movement of rotating bicycle wheel. On the stage a collection of mechanical objects explore different variations of circular movements. The elements are creating moving shadows inside the room with an overhead projector and a Super 8 projector alternating light sources and diffracting the shadows of the rotating wheels. A collection of sound objects, phone, wheel, turntable (…) are picked up with piezo microphones, creating a metallic and mechanical sound patterns slowly modified in real time. A fragile moving mirror sculptures made with servo motors is turning in the middle of the space alternatively diffracted by the light beams. Finally a homemade electronic suitcase hides the surrealist treasures of another secret electronic apparatus.
AudeRrose is multi-disciplinary artist working with performance, photography, sound and projection. Her imagery plays with narrative structures, developing dreamy and intimate universes, exploring various forms of interplay between body, images in motion, deconstructive narrations and self-mythology. Her performances articulate live scenography protocols integrating the projection as an environment medium, considering the black box as a possible oneiric space, where sounds and images communicate in a narrative journey.
Technical design: Brent Sqar
SPEKTRUM is a space of convergence for cultural communities and transdisciplinary groups emerging and operating in and off Berlin. The project aims to bring confrontation, open knowledge and a platforms for idealisation, realisation and presentation of technology-based artworks, science-focused events and futuristic utopias based on the principle “do-it-together-with-others”. Above all, we are an open space promoting participatory processes to co-define and co-design a social and physical playground for curiosity and critical understanding.
The venue is part of a monumental architecture in the heart of Kreuzberg/Neukölln realised by Franz Hoffmann and Bruno Taut, one of the main expressionist architects of the modernist period. The inner space is characterised by a multi-layered approach to heights, with an unusual 5 meter high ceiling for the event room and other sections organised as split-levels. These architectural qualities tell us a story of planes and volumes, offering guests a surprising walk around with secret spots to discover.
