Performance

Performance

Obituary is a live monologue performed by the artist which falls apart and eats itself.

Combining characters and motifs from past work, the performance acts as a parody of Plato’s cave and an expansion of the language found in Matt Copson’s animation and installation work.

This is his first fully-fledged performance with live soundtrack by long-time collaborator felicita.

MATT COPSON

Matt Copson was born in 1992 in Oxford, England. His work uses theatrical devices and artistic tropes to create existential dramas of contemporaneity, abstraction, eternal recurrence and the uncanny.
His shown exhibitions and projects at CLEARING (Brussels) Swiss Institute (New York), Louis Vuitton Foundation (Paris), Mönchehaus Museum (Goslar) and Serpentine Sackler Gallery (London). In 2022, he will premiere ‘Last Days’, his first opera as a librettist and director, at the Royal Opera House, London.

Continuing the line of work begin in 2014, El cine rev[b]elado has put together a programme of activities on audiovisual performance and cinema’s interconnections with other disciplines, engaging with the cinematographic experience beyond the conventional darkened film theatre and the screened image. Instead, here we will be interrelating and transforming it in order to activate an audiovisual-based experience that questions not just its own language but also its whole structure and logistics.

Similar to previous iterations of this programme, we are presenting a range of transversal projects that blend film and cinema with sound art, new media, radio, architecture and dance. Taking on board the situation of the pandemic and also as a kind of tribute to the origins of this programme, this year we are focused entirely on the local fabric with a view to strengthening the bonds with the territory.

Our goal is to give our audience a chance to share some of the most outstanding contemporary audiovisual and performance-based works. We will be taking a closer look at and lending a particular focus to the local scene, ensuring a continuity with local artists and agents after Covid-19. In addition, most of these projects are being debuted for the first time in Madrid, thus reinforcing El cine rev[b]elado’s role as a key event in the performing arts and in the cultural calendar of the Region of Madrid during the winter season. This year we are celebrating the project’s fifth edition at CA2M, no better moment to meet up, come together again, reflect on the current situation and continue to work together.

Curated by Playtime Audiovisuales (Natalia Piñuel Martin and Enrique Piñuel Martin).

“EXPOGRAPHY is the physical-mental-time space in which the fact of seeing and the fact of being seen converge: what we are and what we experience when looking, what we are and what we experience when we are looked at, and what vision is in itself, as something half way between the capacity of the viewer and what emanates from the viewed object. To be activated, any exhibition needs these three terms—the viewer, the viewed and the vision—which, to a certain extent, converge in one single space-time-event-experience.

On the other hand, EXPOGRAPHY is a reflection on the Museum and on Theatre: what happens in each one of these places; the codes governing time and the audience’s relationship with the work imposed by each individual space. We propose the game of altering these codes and experimenting with what is produced as a result. We propose forcing a certain perspective, situating ourselves in places which are physically and temporally different to the usual, and observing the effects these variations produce in us.

The EXPOGRAPHY project takes the form of two totally different works which are the result of the complete deployment of this whole research: COLLECTIVE EXPOGRAPHY and RETROSPECTIVE EXPOGRAPHY. The first work is presented on Saturday 12 January here at CA2M, playing with the temporality of the museum, which requires a commitment from spectators to remain in the museum for the 8 consecutive hours of the experience. In fact, in COLLECTIVE EXPOGRAPHY, people are actually participants and not spectators. Over the duration of this long event, the artistic proposal is mixed with the need to eat, to visit the toilet, to smoke a cigarette and to cohabit the space with others. All these needs are co-opted into the device, which also opens up to other needs and desires. Although apparently very demanding because of the commitment to remain relatively isolated for 8 hours, this experience in fact offers the freedom to leave behind the “prison” of our habits and ways of looking at the world for the duration of the event.

The second work, RETROSPECTIVE EXPOGRAPHY, is more of a “spectacle” or “show” in the conventional meaning of the word, and will be presented one week later, on 17,18 and 19 January at Teatros del Canal.

This research process has been supported and coproduced jointly by CA2M and Teatros del Canal.

What happens when you grow up with a genderless neutral language and then arrive in a country in which everything is gendered? How can we speak of identity when a language has already determined what is masculine and feminine?

This is what the young Iranian artist Sorour Darabi was faced with when s/he arrived in Montpellier to study dance. Her/his mother language, Farsi, has no masculine or feminine forms. French, on the other hand, constantly forced him/her to distinguish between male and female, even in her/his search for his/her own language of movement. Accepting a word thus became a physical test.

Darabi rebelled against this violent form of authority. Farci.e (2016) is an androgynous solo show that flirts with the boundaries of gender, language and sexuality.

Los Teatros del Canal and CA2M are working together in a programme conceived to mark out a shared working space: the body understood as in permanent construction and, accordingly, in permanent conflict. For Sorour Darabi (Shiraz, Iran), the transition of his own body triggers a radical confrontation with the social body: transgender identity uncovers the power of language over bodies, but also the power of the body to threaten the conventions of language.

Sorour Darabi is a self-taught Iranian artist who lives and works in Paris. After working in the underground network in Iran, s/he went on to study at the Centre Chorégraphique National (CCN) in Montpellier, France.

Last summer, a group of boats set sail from the port of Valparaíso. When they reached open sea, the crew tied the boats with ropes to keep them close together and to recite poetry. A while after the event it was believed that it was the bodies that were holding tightly onto one another with their hands, very close together, in concentric circles so that they would not separate and to keep upright. Caro says that the public held onto the poets so that they would not fall into the sea while reciting.

This summer the mothers died. This summer we burnt the mountains in Madrid and we smelled it all. We extracted its gases in order to incrust a galaxy into the museum in the ceramic skirting board that runs around a large part of the third floor. We dreamed of pouring ourselves into this gap in which the horizontal and the vertical are decided, to cross this edge and to slash open the museum and escape on a flying carpet or on a UFO.

Rodapié Universo (skirting board universe) is a trip to the final horizon; to the ocean, its views and its voices which we conjure up through the architecture of the museum.

Acknowledgments: Toño Naharro, Sergio Muñoz Arriagada, Carlos Cociña, Julieta Marchant and A Cielo Abierto / Festival Internacional de Poesía de Valparaíso.

CA2M in conjunction with Silvi ManneQueen and Madrid Ballroom Scene wish to invite you to attend a Kiki Ball. Kiki is the less mainstream side to the ballroom scene. Because it is more open, it gives exposure to new members coming onto the scene and offers the audience a chance to take part. A ball is a voguing battle where dancers and artists demonstrate their moves in different categories in front of an international jury.

 If you’ve seen the exhibition Elements of Vogue and love voguing and ballroom culture then you won’t want to miss this ball. But if you haven’t seen it and you love everything about fashion, catwalks, dancing, and want to feel like a model strutting your stuff on the runway, or if you’re into creativity and want to express yourself freely and be who you want to be.... this is also the place for you! You can take part as a competitor or simply enjoy the show as part of the audience: but, simply remember, be who you want to be and once you start looking, you too become part of the show!

This is also a special occasion because it gives us a chance to present for the first time members of the Kiki House of F.A.B, the newly founded international house of artists and voguers based in Madrid.

DRESS CODE / THEME

Borrowing inspiration from the installation made by the NY artist Rashaad Newsome especially for holding balls at CA2M, you will be whisked away to a fabulous world of gemstones, glamour and bling bling whose superficial appearance belies the fact that it is a platform for the radical resistance of dancing bodies.

CATEGORIES

 - Runway 

- Virgin Performance
- Realness
- Old way vs. New Way
- Hands Performance
- Best Look of the Night
- Vogue Femme

REGISTRATION

Enrolment free, open until 16 January

Maximum 3 categories

The organisation reserves the right to consider a category to be full when a sufficient number of participants have enrolled. 

The idea is to motivate people to enrol in other categories. So, don’t waste your time and enrol now!
If you have any doubts on categories and dress codes, send an email to: madridballroomescene@gmail.com 

Description of categories and themes for dress codes

Choose whichever suits you best, become who you want to be, take part and hope the judges give you 10s! The sky is the limit! However, we have provided some guidelines for looks for each category.

OTA RUNWAY: Pearls and Diamonds

The INSPIRATION for this category is for Pearls and Diamonds to sparkle on the runway. This is your chance to be a real model without conforming to stereotypes or canons. But remember, this is not a fancy dress ball. Creativity, elegance and Xtravaganza are the watchwords. Slay the Catwalk!
To get your 10s, you need to wear:
- European Runway : Headpiece (ornamental headdress)
- American Runway : Handbag (bag, purse, briefcase)
All participants will walk individually. The judges will then choose who moves on to the battle phase, where two participants walk at the same time, ballroom style. The judges will be looking for runway technique.

HANDS PERFORMANCE: Pyrite (Gold/Silver)
Show us what you can do in hands performance inspired by pyrite, fool’s gold. Look to its angles, cuts, sparkle and details for the elements on which to base your polished technique and smooth moves. Protect your hands with gloves, and cover your arms with golden or silver details, to tell us your dazzling story.

BEST LOOK OF THE NIGHT: Sapphires and/or Rubies (Spectators and participants)

This is the moment to show off the most fabulous look of the night and dazzle with your style. To take part in this event you don’t have to walk, you just show off your look, the one that shows the real you. This category has no set rules; all you have to do is take your inspiration from precious gemstones like rubies and sapphires. Remember that judges in this category will be looking at all details: hairstyle, accessories, jewellery, etc. and your ability to sell your look.

The public can take part. So if you feel up to it on the night, you could win this category, though you have to bear in mind the dress code. You don’t have to sign up beforehand.

Dress up and pass yourself off with INSPIRATION from the installation created expressly by Rashaad Newsome for the exhibition “Elements of Vogue” at CA2M, where the Kiki ball will be held. Whether your choice is Bling Bling, Banji or Hip Hop you have to convince the judges with your realness and swag. And don’t forget, it’s not just a case of dressing up.

This category was originally created in the ballroom scene to acknowledge people’s ability to “pass” unnoticed in wider society at a time when being Black or Latino and LGBT was by no means easy. For instance, the challenge for a gay male was to “pass” for being as straight as possible and gain access to the same privileges in society, like getting a job. Or, for a transsexual, the challenge was to be as “real” as possible and return home safely without getting beaten up. This category is broken down into different kinds of Realness: Thug Realness, School Boy, Transman Realness, Femme Queen Realness, Butch Realness, Butch Queen Up in Drag Realness (BQUID), etc.

OTA VIRGIN PERFORMANCE: Pink Quartz
You love voguing and are thinking about walking but don’t have the experience? There’s always a first time for everyone! And, if you’re reading this category, maybe now it’s your turn. Don’t think twice. Prepare a look based on the virginity and purity of Pink Quartz, and show the judges your wild side.

Any style of voguing is welcome (Old way, New Way, Vogue Femme, but without mixing them up). For first-timers only.

VOGUE FEMME: Holographic Opal

This much-awaited category shines with a light of its own. If you’ve ever taken part in a kiki or ball, now’s your chance to dazzle the judges with your Holographic Opal look. Opal is the “Artist’s Stone” because of its ability to bring out hidden talents and the whole spectrum of the rainbow.

Use the visual effects and sparkle of the opal and add your own walk to outshine everyone else, whether it’s through dramatics or soft and cunt, and show those judges how versatile you are.

To get 10s, your walk has to include a prop and one or more colours of the rainbow. Be creative! Besides your attire, judges will be looking at your walk technique, elements and charisma before giving away any 10s.

If you have any doubts or questions about categories or dress codes please send an email to: madridballroomescene@gmail.com

You are invited to attend the Ball with a look inspired by one of the options. Please pay attention because there will be a category in which you can decide to take part on the very day of the Ball. Follow the event on Facebook, where you’ll find photos to inspire looks and attire.

Storyboard P is a dancer raised in Brooklyn. It would be an understatement to say that he goes beyond street dance. His style of dancing even challenges the most elementary laws of physics, defying gravity and moving in such counterintuitive ways that one can only assume that his body acts as a portal into another dimension. An Afrofuturist universe where time and space fold under the dancing feet.

Storyboard has defined his dance style as “mutant”, drawing inspiration from a variety of subcultural forms as heterogeneous as Jamaican dancehall, flexing from his native Brooklyn, West Coast krumping, the Old Way voguing that LGTB teens used to dance at the Christopher Street pier, or even the mechanical movements of stop-motion animation. His voracious curiosity has led him to collaborate with artists and filmmakers including Kahlil Joseph, Arthur Jafa, Flying Lotus and Jay-Z.

For his performance at CA2M, Storyboard P will alternate between freestyle improvisation and storytelling, exploring the body as a source of empowerment and self-affirmation in the face of loss and structural violence.

This performance will weave together biography, survival, and urban science fiction.

Free entrance until full capacity is reached

This performance has been organised on the occasion of Madrid’s international contemporary art fair, ARCOmadrid 2018, whose curatorial programme this year gravitates around the question of The Future.

CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo in conjunction with Mother Spain Silvi ManneQueen and Madrid Voguing Ball - BALLROOM SCENE wish to invite you to the celebrations for the 5th Anniversary of the Madrid Voguing Ball, the 10th Anniversary of CA2M and the closing of the exhibition Elements of Vogue: A Case Study in Radical Performance. This joint celebration will be held on 6 May in the guise of THE OVAH BALL.

The Ovah Ball is not far off, and it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for to show off your creativity and originality and take it to another level. Create a work of art with your performance and your look. This ball is your chance to be the artist, exhibiting your masterpiece...

Inspired by the use of materials and their transformation, participants will be required to create jaw-dropping looks and to fight it out in battles and leave the judges speechless. And if they do say anything, let it be: OVAH!!!

“Take trash and turn it into treasure, take tragic and turn it into magic”

The event will take place in the installation created specifically by the New York artist Rashaad Newsome for holding balls at CA2M, a fabulous world of precious stones, glamour, bling bling and superficial glitter but which is at once a platform for the radical resistance of dancing bodies.

If you’ve already seen the exhibition Elements of Vogue and love ballroom culture and voguing, you won’t want to miss this ball. But if you haven’t seen it yet and love everything about performance, fashion and dance, strutting down the runway like a true model, or if your thing is pure creativity and you want to express yourself freely and be who you really are.... then this is the time and place for you! You can take part as a competitor or enjoy the show as part of the audience: just remember to be who you want to be and that that once you start watching, you too are part of the show!

BE WHOEVER YOU WANNA BE!

We invite you to attend the ball with a look inspired by one of the many options we have chosen. We recommend checking the event regularly on Facebook, for inspirational photos for looks and costumes.

A ball is a safe space where you can express yourself as you want to be, with battles in different categories (voguing, runway, hands performance), with different artists and dancers who face off in front of an international jury.

Host:
Mother Spain Silvi ManneQueen (Spain)

Commentator:
Matyouz LaDurée (Paris)
Judges:
Twiggy Pucci Garçon (NYC)
Mother Leiomy Amazon (NYC)
Archie Burnett Ninja (NYC)
DJ: MikeQ

CATEGORIES

Choose the one that suits you best, be the person who want to be, and compete for those 10s! The sky’s the limit! Below you have a guide to the various categories to INSPIRE your look.

OTA (Open to all): any individual, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, etc.

F A S H I O N

TAG TEAM RUNWAY OTA
TRASH BAGS is the INSPIRATION for designing a look in this category. In addition, you will also have to use METAL to create your accessories. This is your chance if you want to be a real model, without stereotypes or canons. Bear in mind that this is not a fancy dress ball. Creativity, eleganza and xtravaganza are the keywords.

This category is for tag teams and each pair will compete on the runway, looking for 10s. The teams shortlisted by the jury will go on to fight it out in battles, where two competitors will walk at the same time in ballroom style. Judges will be looking for runway technique. Plastic is fantastic but metal is too!!

DESIGNERS DELIGHT OTA
This is your chance to show off your style and taste. You don’t need to dance, just show us your best design, the one that represents who you really are as a designer, using materials like PAPER, CARDBOARD AND/OR POSTERBOARD as your source of inspiration.

Remember that the designer does not necessarily have to walk with the costume, but the outfit must always be created specifically for the model who will be wearing it on the runway.

Don’t forget that this category takes every detail into account: hair, accessories, jewellery and the model’s ability to sell the look to the judges.

Make sure your look looks flawless.

BIZARRE OTA
Let your imagination and creativity run wild, and show us your most bizarre creation. Anything goes, but your creation should use materials like CABLES, LIGHTBULBS, OBSOLETE TECHNOLOGICAL MATERIAL, etc. Don’t forget to use the concept of transformation; reinvent yourself and amaze or shock us with your outlandish creation.

Forget happening trends and look in the deepest recesses of your own mind to come up with something totally original. Judges will be looking for the creativity, originality and elaboration of the design.

P E R F O R M A N C E 

OLD WAY OTA
For Old way use elements that keep bonds and ties with the origins of voguing. Create a look using ROPE, KNOTS AND/OR STRING, but keeping the signature elegance of this style. You can cut off your opponent and even use elements… but remember, you cannot touch.

NEW WAY OTA
If New Way is your style, here you have a chance to go beyond the origins and incorporate flexibility, speed and control.
Here the inspiration for your look is a more complex weave made from MESH, NETS AND BRAIDED FABRIC.
Be creative!

HANDS PERFORMANCE OTA
In this category you can show us what you can really do with your hands, telling us a story. Dazzle the judges not only with your story, and add LIGHTING, but nothing with a flame.
All hands on deck!

TAG TEAM VOGUE FEMME OTA:
This is the category to truly shine, and this time it is going to be extra special. Leave the judges with their mouths open, borrowing the inspiration for your look from the painting technique known as “DRIPPING”. Cover your costume with colourful SPLASHES and BRUSHSTROKES.

This category is also for teams in which at least one member will have to be a beginner or virgin (1 year or less), whether the style be dramatics or soft and cunt. Show the judges what you can do as a team. Be creative! If you want to get 10s then impress the judges with your look, dance technique, elements and charisma.

REALNESS: (3 trophies)

Show us your realness and the realness of your look; you can give a second life to your old DENIM or use remnants of old JEANS for your creation. Remember that it is not just a case of dressing up in fancy dress, and show us something new and modern.

• PRETTY BOY REALNESS
• DRAG REALNESS
• FEMME QUEEN (FQ) / TRANSMEN REALNESS

*Note: This category was originally created in the ballroom scene to award a person’s skills in “passing” unnoticed in larger society, given that, at the time, belonging to the LGTB community, and furthermore being Black or Latino, was no easy task in New York City. For example, the challenge for a gay man was to “pass” among people as heterosexual as possible, and so obtain the same privileges in society, like getting a job. Or, for instance, for a transsexual person, the challenge was to appear as “real” as possible, and return home alive without being beaten up. Within this category there are different types of Realness: Thug Realness, School Boy, Transman Realness, Femme Queen Realness, Butch Realness, Butch Queen Up in Drag Realness (BQUID), etc.

F A C E 

FACE OTA: (1 trophy)
Attract all eyes and make sure your beauty is also reflected in your look, using MIRRORS and GLASS for your creation.
Captivate the judges with your facial features, beauty and charisma. Judges will be looking for facial structures, i.e. cheeks, chin, perfect skin, teeth, smile, but also corporal expression, attitude, make-up and clothes.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall ….who is the fairest at the CA2M ball?

• BQ Face
• FF Face

There will be separate judging by subcategories but there will also be a final battle and one single trophy.

Enrolment is free and open until X 26 APRIL.

Maximum 3 categories per person.

The order of the categories will be announced later.

If you want to take part as a competitor you must fill out the following ENROLMENT FORM

The organization reserves the right to consider a category “full” when it believes that there is a sufficient number of participants, with the purpose of motivating participation in other categories. So, hurry up and book your place now!

If you have any questions about categories and looks, send an email to: MADRIDBALLROOMSCENE@GMAIL.COM

“Jinete is not a rider, Jinete is the effect of resisting the flat plains, the experience of making room in this vast world that tries to oust us, nothing that will last for long, without pain and without danger, and still we hope it won’t disappear.” María Salgado and Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca use these words to describe their latest audio-textual research, which revolves around subjective disobedience in the current socio-historical context. Returning to the project in January 2017, the research is currently grounded in an instrumental piece with the same title for oboe and electronic devices performed in 2013 by the SMASH ensemble and published as a music score in the Present Tense Pamphlets collection. On this occasion, Salgado and Cabeza de Vaca’s work is based on three exercises, or fragments, which include installations and performative, sound and text pieces. The first of these is Jinete Último Reino Frag. 3, “a lyrical concert” and at once “an analyrical recital”, which finds in the night “a proposition of distortion, diversion and emotions”, a space for resistance “where things change form so that tomorrow they will not be the same.”

Yabba is a cosmos with its own order, its own rhythm and its own systems in movement that invites spectators to enter a new logic. A hybrid of different technologies, an amalgam of entities in constant transformation in time that produces other things in the encounter with those who observe them.

Things that transpose images, concepts, ideas, emotions that happen precisely at that moment of encounter with the entities of this deformed and changing cosmos.

A kind of being that is everything and nothing, is full and empty, that takes all forms but which still does not have any yet.
Yabba is there, changing, mutating colour, sculpting forms, unfolding its materiality… This state of constant transformation proposes an attentive gaze that pays attention to the inability to name what is happening. Looking after all these indescribable forms opens up a new possibility of interrelating that is removed from measurable values.
