WAH (Weber / Anderson / Helschinger)

 

WAH ist ein multidisziplinäres Kunstkollektiv aus Anja Weber, Jagna Anderson und Dodi Helschinger. 

Ihre künstlerischen Ausdrucksmittel sind Tanz, Stimmklang, akustische Soundscapes, elektronische Musik, Poesie und Rauminstallation. Alle diese Ausdrucksmittel befragen sie hinsichtlich ihrer inhärenten Beziehung zur existentiellen und künstlerischen Freiheit.

Sie interessiert das Verhältnis von Raum und Zeit.

 

WAH wurde 2016 in Berlin gegründet. Ihre Zusammenarbeit begann innerhalb des Formats Performomat von Jagna Anderson.

 

Ihre bisherigen Arbeiten sind Where Is My When (2016), Amorphous Alloy 1.0 (2017), Amorphous Alloy 2.0 (2017) und EVA I (2017).

Amorphous Alloy 2.0
anja weber – dance, electronics, e-guitar
jagna anderson – dance, voice
dodi helschinger – voice, poetry, e-guitar

Amorphous alloys are metallic materials with a glass-like structure and astonishing properties. Used as biomaterial for implantation into bones, metallic glass dissolves gradually in organisms and is replaced with bone tissue … We explore possible meeting points between (female) body and machine, melting electronics, poetry, vocals, body/movement and spacial structures into a performative amorphous alloy.

MACHINE//BODY Series, February 17th, doors at 20:00, show promptly at 20:30

 

Artist in residence, Muyassar Kurdi (NYC), curates this series which puts emphasis on sound and movement, space and architecture. It explores the co-existence of the two seemingly independent entities.

 

* Doron Sadja

* “amorphe legierung” trio by Jagna Anderson, Anja Weber, and Dodi Helschinger

* “Intersections and Variations” by Muyassar Kurdi

 

*Thanks for the support of Vorspiel 2017 (joint effort by transmediale and CTM)

I am happy to announce this upcoming performance by WAH

(Anja Weber - Jagna Anderson - Dodi Helschinger) in the frame of the body//machine series curated by Muyassar Kurdi during her residency at Liebig12 (thank you Muyassar for the invitation!). This is going to be an exciting evening with three acts by Doron Sadja, Muyassar Kurdi and our trio.

We are melting electronics, poetry, vocals, body/movement and spatial structures into a (performative) amorphous alloy. Amorphous alloys are metallic materials with a glass-like structure and astonishing properties, applicable for example as biomaterial for implantation into bones, which dissolves gradually in organisms and is replaced with bone tissue… a possible meeting point between body and machine. Come, come!

 

 

performomat 2// scent#2: where is my when

 

performomat is a research machine producing instant performances in durational group setting.
performomat is testing new scores as well as new forms of collaboration and of meeting the audience.
sessions are partially open to the audience

performance: anja weber, dodi helschinger, jagna anderson
 

the session explores body-mind states inspired by olfactory perception within the frame of a time-score. while playing with simultaneous or overlapping phrasing of sound, movement and stillness the performers examine the subtle reticulations of time and space, and question the possible role that the limbic and subcortical processing of sensory data may play in this process.


open for limited number of passive participants – if you are interested to witness the performance process, write us a short message –
– team (at) impro-per-arts.de


saturday, 13 august 2016
doors opens at 7pm

performomat 1// silence#1: scent

 

concept/facilitation/direction: jagna anderson
performance: anja weber, anna weißenfels, delphine robet, dodi helschinger, maria ferrara, maya raghavan, naima ferré


silence scores are exploring spaces created by minimalist interactions in durational setting. they require a high bodily intensity to perform at low volume level. every score is addressing some realms of somatic or sensory experience. "Scent" gives special attention to the olfactory system in order to inform performative actions.

open for limited number of passive participants – if you are interested to witness the performance process, write us a message –

performomat is a research machine producing instant performances in durational group setting.

performomat is testing new scores as well as new forms of collaboration and of meeting the audience.

involved are dance, music, sound, voice, visual arts, poetry.

 

concept/facilitation: anja weber

performance: janna anderson, annelie andre, maayan danoch, elena dragonetti, evan foster, dodi helschinger, sarah menger, maya raghavan, ingo reulecke, susanne soldan, karine thomas, anja weber

 

 

in this performomat we work with different shapes of echo e.g. delay.

we give in motifs of movement or poetry and heighten awareness of the motifs of the other performers. these motifs will be repeated in different delay time and varied in their inner dymamics also in excerpts of the original.
while working, on this we are constantly keeping the form of the piece in total in our attention and find a coherent structure of the whole.
out of these dynamic relations and connections evolves on another level a structure full of meaning.
