openfriday: video + dance

Celebrating the arrival of the spring, this openfriday approaches the creative process in video and dance.

Dionís Escorsa presents a compilation of video that analyze the paradox of the reintegration of the images in the same reality from where they have been removed. Its projection as space installation often is like almost phantasmagoric echo of the own place that serves to show to them. These represented appearances, are they objects or personages, who can arise behind a door or remove the head by a window, are used to to being filmed in the same place, using treatments of videografic animation and following the same directives of perspective and scale which later they serve like support of the result, conferring to the expositive space a category almost of performer, of space act. They are gags short, situations to say more theater than cinematographic, - often repeating itself in form of loop to look for plus a quality of presence that of narration, - in which these appearances make autoreferencial acts almost always. The time like condition for the movement, the death like cycle aim, the constant change or growth like life definition, desire like first motor, they are some of the ample thematic references of these escenografic representations.

First, Penélope Serrano and finally, Inact-Efact (Kristal Montana and Janina Riera), share with us their dance, doing use of sensors displayed in the openfriday of January (pd open dev). Penélope with a dance 'solo': 'Vidrá'. Next they act Inact-Efact doing an exploration of the Rites of the Spring of Igor Stravinsky, also gathering elements of a previous videoperformance, in which they treated about the found dual qualities in our psychic world from a reflective study on the emotional balance. Inact-Efact looks for the touching immersion of the public, and in this occasion it does in an experimentation opened to the improvisation, in a dialogue with the companions who have developed the sensors and the programming, visual and sonic landscapes...

Alex Posada (nice-noise)has prepared the sensors and with Xavi Manzanares aka Moe (onnirik.org), has programmed its use by means of PureData; in addition they have contributed to the sonorous landscapes for the dance. Sara (r3) and Eduardo Imasaka do the visuals 'mix' for the performance of Janina and Kristal. The 'bricoleur' Jean-Pierre Girault aka Geppeto has everywhere been where to fact it lacks.
