This installment will focus on the legal-philosophical concept of the commons, which refers to all assets that are not privately owned. The commons legislates and defines all assets that may be freely used by all the members of a given community. The commons can be used to describe tangible (forests, squares, etc.) and intangible assets (musical compositions, designs, etc.), as well as social (democracy), natural (ocean floors) and cultural elements (languages), as long as they are publicly and collectively managed.

PARTICIPATING BANDS

ANTONNA. Today, technology is advancing at a terrifying pace, and one of the consequences is that nobodies like this guy can record whole albums in their own homes and brazenly offer them to respectable, law-abiding citizens on the web. Accompanied by a raucous drum machine, an acoustic guitar and a moustachioed bassist, Anntona has released En la cama con Anntona, with a style which some have likened to Magnetic Fields and Mojinos Escozíos. Somewhere halfway between these two bands is this incredibly fresh pop pieced together with second-rate rhymes and more than first-rate melodies. Anntona is a good guy and he’s willing to prove it, regardless of who he has to trample on in the process.

ANTONNA

LOS CLAVELES. Marcos played the saxophone with Au, but what he really wanted to do was play his own songs, which had a sound somewhere between Golpes Bajos and Josef K, so he started playing with Santos and Jordi, and it turned out that their sound was something more between Monochrome Set and Ciudad Jardín. Later they brought in Papeles and Miguel, and then Papeles and Miguel left and they brought in Sergio, and meanwhile they released two CD-Rs and gave a handful of concerts that won them a lot of fans, because they sound fresh and fun and have a lot of hit songs. 

LOS CLAVELES

PRISMA EN LLAMAS. Hugo, formerly of the band Margarita, and Pablo, formerly of Ensaladilla Rusa, are the two halves of Prisma en Llamas. They will soon be releasing an EP with songs that are a perfect genetic cross between Jesus and Mary Chain and El Último de la Fila. They offer us six songs of tension, like a rubber band that is about to break but refuses to snap with the restraint of the satiated glutton. Melodies that slide smoothly into your ears and down to your trachea and stay there, where the acoustics are better. Prisma en Llamas is one of the most agreeable surprises of 2010.

prisma en llamas

WILD HONEY. The official history of pop tends to tiptoe over a lot of albums which the most obsessive music buffs consider true touchstones. Wild Honey, the title of Guillermo Farré’s project, takes its name from the grossly underrated Beach Boys record – an album of marvellous songs where everything falls discreetly into its proper place. But marvels are never really discreet, and even the slightest effort to listen a bit more closely will soon reveal how great this album truly is. Wild Honey is that kind of band. Epic Handshakes and Bear Hug, Wild Honey’s debut album, features music that practically oozes love. You can hear echoes of Brill Building, The Zombies, early Scott Walker, the Sherman Brothers’ Disney soundtracks, Michel Legrand, Curt Boettcher, bubblegum pop, everything along the line from the upbeat sentimental tunes of American music from the first half of the 20th century to a pocket-size Sufian Stevens and Jens Lekman with an innocent voice and gaze. Dressed-up pop that strives to be beautiful and is: solid tunes, impeccable arrangements and tributes.

Este número versó en torno al procomún (traducción al castellano del concepto jurídico-filosófico anglosajón commons), concepto que designa todos aquellos bienes cuya propiedad no se encuentra en manos privadas. El procomún legisla y determina todos aquellos bienes que pueden ser libremente utilizados por todos los miembros de comunidades dadas. Pueden ser parte del procomún tanto entes tangibles (bosques, plazas…) como bienes intangibles (composiciones musicales, diseños…), entes sociales (democracia), naturales (fondos marinos) o culturales (idiomas), siempre y cuando la gestión de los mismos sea pública y colectiva.

“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.

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.

Modernity defined the perfect spaces for the contemplation of artistic practices. The white cube became the ideal environment for the contemplation of art. In the exhibition of white walls isolated from the outside, the viewer can wander among and stop before works without any distraction whatsoever. As a result, their entire being, and particularly their eye were completely given over to the aesthetic experience. This same «neutrality» would be conferred on the theatre space, in which the black box would be consolidated as the ideal device to eliminate any reference to the outer world that might distract spectators deep in concentration, who in their stillness, would watch the lives of the characters unfold in front of them as if they were seated at a café terrace.

In this cycle of performances, dance and theatre, we present a set of proposals that depart from the idea of performance as a discipline that expands and oversteps the traditional boundaries of not only the practices themselves, but also the conventional exhibition spaces and institutions dedicated to artistic practices. How can dance and theatre be presented in the same museum? To what extent can the specific conditions of presentation inherent to each alter the logic of the museum space? How can the frameworks of meaning contributed by the museum transform these practices? It is in this mind frame that we suggest a program in which the concepts of performance and performativity are analysed on the basis of various proposals. Thus, not only the bodies will perform, but also the images, words and, obviously, the things.

In the definitions given by both Austin, and then Buttler, Derrida or more recently even Maurizio Lazzarato, the term performativity alluded to the linguistic, the identifying and the objectual. Moreover, in recent years, the concept of performativity has also invaded the political terrain. To such an extent that the events protagonised by the bodies of citizens in the squares of a large part of the Mediterranean Arc have been described as performances. And so it would appear to be important to rethink the contributions contemporary artists are making to this practice.

Over a series of six dual performance sessions and the workshop Open space Black Box / White Cube? Thinking about the periphery to be held in the Sala Pradillo in Madrid, we suggest cross-disciplinary encounters through a program of performances grouped into 6 sessions to be expressed around three axes: language, the political body and the performativity of things.

The acts of language: the cycle opens with the piece titled Black by Mette Edvarsen, who quite aptly constructs a series of objects through the spoken word and movement that allude to the blackness of the theatre. Those objects which, painted black, we find in any stage setting, deprived of all color. The artists participating in this block will work with the spoken word to create situations in which those present are accomplices in the construction of meaning.

The political body: according to Butler, the policy of «being together» or the «appearance of bodies in the square», represents an act of bravery by those who risk their physical safety in the simple act of re-occupying the public space, so frequently privatized. What role might bodies play in an impoverished public area in the midst of a crisis of representative democracy? How to deal with issues such as presence, representation and occupation through the work of dance and performance? Here it again becomes essential to rethink concepts such as the «people», «the masses», «the crowd», the performance of me and social choreography.

The performativity of things: the work of these artists revolves around the activation of objects that are apparently insignificant with the intention of triggering new layers of meaning that go beyond positivist materialism. Whether through the use of appropriationist strategies of Duchampian origin, or others closer to the surrealism of objects found, or those from situationist détournement, these creative acts focus on generating new ways of relating to our environment. But in this block we will not just talk about objects, rather we will delve into the meaning of things, those elements that go beyond the radical separation established by modernity between subjects and objects. Thus, things have the capacity to allude to abstract matters, but may also transport us to the world of animism, and naturally, the fetish. Therefore, performance would be that «thing» that refuses to be trapped.

The goal of the Artists in Residence programme, run jointly by La Casa Encendida and CA2M, is to support creation and research focused on art work engaging with the body and performance.

Acento is a project held within the Artists in Residence framework in which some of the projects conceived and developed during the 2016 programme will be presented during a two-day event. The idea is to facilitate a meeting place with the artists in the 2017 programme. At the event the two organising institutions wish to place the accent on ideas that arose during the artistic experimentation using the body, understanding it as the social body and a political construct that produces knowledge through the sentient.

The artists selected in 2016 were: Lilli Hartman & Pablo Durango, Gérald Kurdian, Norberto Llopis & Paz Rojo, Julián Pacomio & Miguel del Amo, Claudia Pagés, Quim Pujol and Silvia Ulloa

PROGRAMME

FRIDAY 27 JAN
At CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo
20:00: Julián Pacomio & Miguel del Amo: ESPACIO HACEDOR

If there is an empty space between two equal parts, then that is the Espacio Hacedor (Making Space).

Espacio Hacedor is a research project which explores the identification, analysis and architectural construction of possible spaces to be found between an original and its copy. Our interest lies in the aesthetic potential of the space located between two almost identical products. We accept that the process of copying or remaking a product, of whatever type, has two inevitable consequences: firstly, the copy not only produces a new product differentiated from the original, but it also produces a third result in the joint interpretation of the original and its copy (1 + 1 = 3). The second consequence is that it opens up the possibility of identifying an invisible image between two images. This is what Espacio Hacedor is all about.

The project is conceived in conjunction with the work of Jorge Luis Borges, Agustín Fernández Mallo and Isidoro Valcárcel Medina, approaching the theatrical, literary, conceptual and architectural work of the aforementioned artists from the perspective of the body.

Julián Pacomio graduated with a BA in Fine Arts in Salamanca. Among his most outstanding works are My Turin Horse, Psicosis Expandida and Espacio Hacedor, performing art projects that experiment with the idea of the copy, remake, translation and appropriation of the material of others.

Miguel del Amo graduated with a BA in Architecture from ETSA, Valladolid and Budapesti Műszaki és Gazdaságtudományi Egyetem. His interest in architecture and design is rooted in various aspects of these disciplines, ranging from the most functional to the least explored.

21:30: Quim Pujol. FREGOLI
Leopoldo Fregoli was one the most celebrated quick-change artists in history. During his performances he kept changing his appearance at lightning speed, impersonating dozens of different characters in one show. The critic Sebastià Gasch said of him: “Fregoli impersonated over one thousand characters of all genders, types and classes (…) Fregoli introduced into theatre the first inklings of the themes of our time.” The Italian actor was also a major reference for Joan Brossa and for avant-garde theatre. This project engages with Fregoli and the avant-garde in order to celebrate the ability to transform ourselves, being in motion and its endless possibilities.

What have we still to learn from Fregoli? In this series of transformation acts, the actor never changes his appearance.

Quim Pujol is a writer, curator and artist. He works on the boundaries between writing, the performing arts and contemporary art. His latest works are Trance colectivo (2014), ASMR del futuro (2015) and Fregoli (2016).

Admission free while places last

SATURDAY 28 JAN
At La Casa Encendida. Patio
22:00: Hot Bodies (Stand up) by Gerald Kurdian & Trk_X

Hot Bodies (Stand up) is a live show by Gerald Kurdian with two electronic instruments, a sampler and a vocoder, and the participation of a female choir created for the occasion. Borrowing from the idioms of opera, stand-up comedy, choreography and documentary, the libretto contains seven songs and two danced interludes, the adventurers of an antihero called Tarek X as he makes his way through the sexual revolutions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Gerald Kurdian is a musician, composer and radio artist who explores performativity and critiques contemporary art by means of various different mechanisms.

Admission: €5. Tickets on sale at ticketea.com, at 902 044 226 and at Casa Encendida from 10:00 to 21:45
