An Kaler’s “Insignificant Others” on stage

© Eva WürdingerAn Kaler will be presenting Insignificant Others (learning to look sideways) on 16th of October 2013 at RMNSC Krakow and on 22nd of October 2013 at STUK Leuven.

What are ways of distributing, or partitioning, or fragmenting presence when being together?

Insignificant Others examines the Tableaux as a shifting structure that diplays the process of the performers co-operating in modes of conducting, structuring and shifting a shared topography of physical presence and absence in fragmented cycles of movements.

The performers are as spectres and carriers of ambiguous images, still and fluctuating. A series of discontinuous but interconnected still postures that make images and situations between the performers but never quite build a shared narrative. Rather than a dramaturgy of determination, the artists are simultaneously working alone together as if in a field of energy that needs careful management, redistribution and direction, here they are making a dance out of the reabsorption of this energy field into the bodies of the empty space, themselves and the perception of audience. Harboured in that which is deemed unaffirmative pure potential is what is performed.

For more than 20 years, the International Theatre Festival Malta has been a melting pot of traditions, themes and forms. The distinctive feature of the festival is the fusion of concerts of international stars, experimental shows, small projects in the city space and discussions with scholars.

A representation of the modul-dance project will be concentrated in a few days of the most innovative choreography. Anne Juren will present Tableaux Vivants (25 June) and Magali Milian and Romuald Luydlin, members of La Zampa their Spekies (27 June). Polish audience will have the chance to discover one of the artists selected in 2012, An Kaler who will perform On Orientations/Untimely Encounters twice in the same day (26 June).

Marie-Caroline Hominal and Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz, modul-dance selected artists, are too part of the programme with other titles, Bat (26 June) and A gesture that is nothing but a threat (28 June), respectively.

All the shows will take place at Stary Browar, home of the Art Stations Foundation Poznań, one of the modul-dance partners.
