ACTING THINGS IV a project by Judith Seng
The dance part of the experiment is developed through an evolving cooperation between dancer Barbara Berti and Judith Seng. ACTING THINGS IV will be performed by Barbara Berti, Julian Weber and Team Studio Judith Seng
ACTING THINGS – Material Flow has been commissioned for as the fourth in a series of experiments which investigates the making of objects through the performing arts in order to unveil the aesthetic, energetic and social dimensions of production processes. By looking at production as a dance, a play, a social ritual, ACTING THINGS explores means of making beyond efficiency and result orientation.
Material Flow stages a poetic evolution of material, movement and objects over the course of Design Miami/ Basel – seven days, eight hours a day. Throughout the fair, dancers will engage in a free-flowing dialogue with material to create objects that express a unique process of making and a continuous cycle of fabrication and dissolution triggered by a continuous flow of material. A series of objects will be created each day to signify a complete cycle of production, only to be broken down the next day and translated into a different body of work, enabling new moments of creation again and again.
Basel, Switzerland – June 13, 2013 – On day three of Design Miami/ Basel 2013 Design Talks, Daniel Arsham and Judith Seng revealed the rich past, present and future of dance and design through a discussion of their collaborations with Merce Cunningham, Jonah Bokaer and Barbara Berti.
