2010 NOW Festival Week Three

NOW Festival 2010: Week Three

The final program of the Festival brings together three experiments that examine the individual as an active performer within larger social, political and mythological landscapes through animation, video feeds, and audio loops layered with live performance. 

 

ALEXANDRO SEGADE: REPLICANT VS SEPARATIST

Presented as a live film shoot with a crew of technicians, Replicant VS Separatist uses stylized comic-book action to construct a sci-fi tale of state-mandated marriage. My Barbarian’s Alexandro Segade calls the shots as his actors portray two male couples navigating love in the face of militaristic conformance—one whose compliance places them within the legal establishment and one whose unsanctioned relationship has them on the run. 

"Incisively intelligent work ... with a sense of humor that is as biting as it is playful." Fanzine


HANA VAN DER KOLK: ONCE MORE, AGAIN, ONE (SOLO)

Dance artist Hana van der Kolk adapts a work originally conceived for four dancers into a solo exploration of performance, collective encounter and the power of popular music. While ransacking familiar songs by the Pointer Sisters, Prince and The Rapture, van der Kolk’s choreographed tasks turn cliché metaphors into a poetic landscape of movement, sound and unexpected associations. 

"A meditation on subtle awareness." ArtForum


MIWA MATREYEK: MYTH AND INFRASTRUCTURE 

Known for her celebrated work with the multimedia collective Cloud Eye Control, award-winning animation and performance artist Miwa Matreyek creates live cinematic works that place her body within meticulously constructed realms of fantasy-driven projection. In the hallucinatory logic of Myth and Infrastructure, Matreyek’s shadow--self moves, under a sphere of constantly rotating stars, through primal worlds and dense cityscapes—-both witness and agent in a vast human narrative.

"Extraordinary and beautiful ... Matreyek pushes the boundaries of realism." 
—THE Magazine LA
