Check out her wonderful INTERACTIVE online Work

The whole essence of the Antropical residency gave us a wider vision of what surrounds us, Especially away from the big city and the Internet. The settings of the residency offered me a ‘sandbox’ to generate artworks outside of my comfort zone. I felt like I was able to confirm my skills in coding, building and collaborating out of nothing. I committed to ‘recycle’ past technologies that I used in my previous artwork, and applied new concepts and visuals to old code. Not only it is successful within a body of work, but it allowed me to slow down. I therefore look more into subtle changes and harmonies rather than if it works. The Antropical residency gave me more than I expected: it has been a human experience in a community of artists which felt professional, constructive and very motivating. I’ve learned more about myself in ten days here than in the last couple of months in London; Thanks to all the unique personalities present, thanks to the inspiring natural and historical surroundings on site. Space, light and relationships are the vital elements to fixing individuality and I would like to express my gratitude to all the people who made Antropical happen on this year of 2016.

Talk:
on line: a manifestation of the human border..

Marianne Villière:
How can a posture in the common space change the ambience? What kind of behavioral differences can we offer at the Festival? What kind of movement can we imagine to stimulate another microcosm / or specific behavior within it? I will suggest starting with the reading of a text (as a situation of utterance): "The Perched Baron" ("Le Baron Perché") by Italo Calvino. It will be an opportunity to reflect on our environment and our behavior in this specific context. I will propose to discuss our actions, the physical languages ​​and the behavioral habits that we have on the spot.
Secondly, it will be about provoking a physical as well as collective modification. Each person has their own approach (literally and figuratively) and is invited to put their observations into practice. A Collaborative (collective) choreography for the Kolla festival is a possible outcome of this workshop.

Clio Van Aerde:
 

Every day we hear people talking about borders. But what substance does this line actually have if we approach it on a human scale, if we confront ourselves physically with the border? Will we be able to see the border? To feel the Border? To hear the Border? How can we understand human/social/political definitions/concepts/constructions like a country, a community, an identity or a border if we have never genuinely explored its limits, it’s shape? These are questions Clio Van Aerde asked herself  before starting her most recent 1-month-performance on line which followed the Walking Art practice and consisted in exploring the physicality of the luxemburgish border by walking its line as precisely as possible.

Workshop:
Contact Improvisation Dance

Gianfranco Celestino: 

Contact Improvisation is a form of dance based on spontaneous movement and physical contact. The exploration of a freely improvised movement sustained by the contact between two or more dancers is central to this proposition. The environment created through this practice provides a safe space to engage in physical dialogues while playing with elements such as gravity, balance-imbalance, lifts, falling.
Learning and practicing Contact Improvisation has many positive physical and psychological effects such as developing body awareness, deepening self-awareness, improving self-confidence and faith in the unknown, developing abilities for creative solutions, increasing physical energy and relaxing the body.

seek and hide - looking for shelter in the public space.

Bleu Le Fou Collective:

 

When, why and how can we define a moment/a place/a situation our “shelter”? With the use of found material, writing, imagination and exploration, this workshop aims at creating a refuge to be found by strangers and shared with them.

Revive the living

Sophie Prinssen: Néo-animism, écosystems and art as tools for new narratives

With the help of a first text by Jérémy Damian called “Weird animism”, I would like to see how the theoretical concept of animism could be used as a tool to create new non-anthropocentric narratives.

Talk:
the overlap of artwork and audience

TH Collective

how to breach cultural/social/political/historical microcosms
here we want to discuss what it means to present an artwork to an audience that is potentially unaware of the subject or context in which it was created. Is it the responsibility of the artist, curator or audience to acquire that information, or perhaps a combination? Is the artist free of this responsibility? Or is it completely up to the curator to establish how much information the audience should be given? And how do the come to this decision? Or is it the responsibility of the audience to make themselves informed about the context of the artwork as they are the ones who choose to interact with it. How can a curator be aware of the audiences level of knowledge concerning a topic? How can the curator present the needed information in a way that is digestible and not just a lump of text? Is it possible to bring everyone’s diverse background on the table and understand the information together in a linear relation?

Valentine Emilia Bossert

During this talk, we will share knowledge and experiences of how we perceive and deal with the surrounding using our 7 senses and will discuss the importance of the senses in art.
