Now in its eleventh outing, IMPACT looks at three outstanding artistic positions that question possible aesthetic principles in art and society in an experimental and playful manner. Through the juxtaposition of unusual methods, systems and approaches in music, theatre and architecture, an unmistakable space emerges for uncovering and interweaving individual fields of action.
The award-winning Cologne based Ensemble Musikfabrik explores contemporary and experimental forms of communication in music and performance. Halory Goerger, co-founder of the French-Belgian theatre collective L’Amicale de Production, sees himself as more of a craftsman than a creative and devises spectacular systems in which he playfully reflects on the world of theatre, the influence of language on human relationships, the spirit of society, the relationships between technology, knowledge and power and the principles of drama. Savvas Ciriacidis and Alex Lehnerer lead the Zurich based architecture office CiriacidisLehnerer and were the general commissioners of the German contribution to the architectural Venice Biennale 2014. Both architects are concerned with examining architecture as a cultural practice and evaluating its strengths and potential to communicate.
IMPACT15 is aimed at artists, advanced students, academics and journalists working in the fields of dance, theatre, art, media art, film, music and architecture.
On Thursday the general public is warmly welcome to join us for an evening of informal events introducing the work of this year’s invited guests:
THU 26. NOVEMBER 2015 19 H
›We will find a title for this lecture when it is performed‹
During IMPACT15 Halory Goerger offers an insight into his multifaceted work and will also talk about the ›L’Amicale de Production‹ cooperative which he co-founded.
THU 26. NOVEMBER 2015 20 H
›Im Freien – en plein air – out of doors‹
Ensemble Musikfabrik pianist Ulrich Löffler presents the chamber concert ›im freien – en plein air – out of doors‹. In this moderated recital which spans a bridge from Erik Satie’s ›Choses vues à droite & à gauche (sans lunettes)‹ to John Adams’ ›Road Movies‹, Löffler talks about his choice of works, uncovering parallels and drawing a musical path from Satie to Haas, from Xenakis to Lachenmann.
