Audio performance
What does nature have to say? To find out, Myriam Van Imschoot visited a zoo, used a tuning fork to listen to a motorway and discovered birds that sound like chainsaws or can imitate the ringtones of mobile phones. Drawing on a variety of field recordings, five performers – with backgrounds in the noise underground scene and pop – replicate these various sounds, using only their voices. The result is a radiophonic performance, a show to listen to and watch, both recognizable and abstract, and in which notions about humanity, nature and machines are called into question. more ...

Interactive performance installation
›Karaoke (ART)‹ is a unique event resonating out of the collision of contemporary art and the karaoke phenomenon. Random Scream invited 15 internationally acclaimed artists to create their own video for a popular karaoke song. Each artist was given a selection of songs to choose from and asked to use their own personal style to reflect on what it’s like to live in the world today with the song as their conduit. The artists were free to create whatever video they desired as long as it clearly embedded the karaoke music and words. more ...

Installation performance
Following ›Die Scheinwerferin‹, and ›Absolute Helligkeit‹, prize winning media artist and performer Naoko Tanaka returns to PACT with ›Unverinnerlicht‹ the final part of her ›Shadow Trilogy‹. Working deliberately with skillful and subtle interplays of light and darkness rather than existing or digitally manipulated images, Tanaka’s enthralling installation performance invites the audience to test the bounds of their powers of sight, deduction and imagination.  more ...

Dance / performance in English
Melody and rhythm have always come before lyrics and meaning for Henri Hütt. In ›Rhythm is a dancer‹, created in part during a residency at PACT in 2013, the Estonian choreographer and dancer sets out to identify his own personal rhythm. Using short video, text and music clips, he skips backwards and forwards in time comparing how he experiences a certain rhythm now with how he experienced it on first encounter in the past. What rhythm should he follow? more ...

Interactive installation
How much creative potential lies in destruction?  Does manipulation offer an insight into the true nature of things? In her live installation ›Worktable‹, the performance, theatre, video and installation artist Kate McIntosh invites visitors to engage in a complicit task of dismantling and reassembling:  Once inside you are given instructions, equipment and safety goggles so you can get to work - it's up to you to decide how things come apart, and how they come back together. more ...

Video installation
›De-Placed‹ is a multi-screen video installation created by Kate McIntosh in collaboration with Eva Meyer-Keller. Shifting through the city, from inside to out, the two artists constructed small installations in the locations they found, ping-ponging images between them - each action challenging the other to a reply. The result is an inventory of the world that is constantly expanding as a result of the mischievous ‘de-placement’ of the things it contains. more ...

Wed 08.04.15 20:00 h

Performance in English
Kate McIntosh’s solo performance ›All Ears‹, which premiered at PACT in 2013, is driven by her ongoing fascination with destruction and creation, sense and nonsense, the whole and the fractured, by her playfulness with the audience and love of theatrical images. With an off-beat humour and moments of lucid thought, the performance, balances on the thin line between experiment and entertainment. more ...

Fri 10.04.15 20:00 h

Sat 11.04.15 20:00 h

Performance in English
›Dark Matter‹ by Kate McIntosh wondrously defies categorization.  Moderated by a female figure standing in the spotlight wearing a sparkling dress and a long, grey beard and with the help of two assistants, some small strange dances, and a few materials, the performance approaches the big scientific-philosophical questions in a show-biz/late-night theatre style: time and gravity, being and not being, thought and the body. more ...

 

Sun 12.04.15 12:00 h

Talk in English
On the closing day of our portrait of Kate McIntosh the general public is warmly invited to join her for a talk about her work across the boundaries of performance, theatre, video and installation over a relaxed brunch in PACT’s foyer. A selection of Kate’s video and installation work will also be on show from 13:00h as well as her live installation ›Worktable‹.  more ...

Dance
›Adam’s R.I.P.‹, Renegade’s first production for an all-female cast, arose from an artistic encounter between choreographer and dancer Lenka Kniha-Bartunkova and young women from the break dance scene. In an entertaining, self-ironic and expressive articulation of feminist thought, five B-Girls explore the role of female energy in hip hop and how female aesthetics communicate in an urban context. more ...

Lecture
Mary Wigman’s ›Le Sacre du Printemps‹ premiered at the Städtische Oper Berlin in 1957. Since then the work has been considered lost. Drawing on surviving sketches, notes and photographs and the support of original cast members and Wigman’s contemporaries, her choreography was reconstructed and restaged by the theatres of Osnabrück and Bielefeld in 2013. Henrietta Horn, artistic director of the reconstruction team, talks about the process and questions that arose during its course. more ...

Dance / Performance
›Der letzte Schrei‹ (the Dernier Cri) can refer to a new fashion trend or the latest sensation or, if taken metaphorically, can also stand for death. In his same named series, Ben J. Riepe, Affiliated Artist at PACT Zollverein since 2013, gives center place to the human body. Eight dancers investigate the beauty and vulnerability of manifestations of the body in a performance space, in fashion or as objects of desire. more ...

In April 2013 artist Thomas Lehmen set out from PACT Zollverein on a solo motorcycle journey around the world with a planned duration of several years. In direct collaboration with people he encountered underway, Lehmen developed a series of ‘reciprocal gifts’ in the form of short dance works, performances and other communal activities. Before resuming his travels in South America, Thomas Lehmen returns to PACT to give an account of some of his stations to date in 26 countries on three continents. more ...

Dance
The works of Bonn based ensemble CocoonDance consistently challenge audiences to break with conventional ways of seeing. Inspired by the structure of DVDs and the interactive possibilities offered by ›bonus materials‹, ›PIECES OF ME‹, breaks free from linear narrative patterns and allows viewers to navigate individual dance fragments and construe themselves as participants, or commentators in an open space. more ...
