Posted 7/7/2015

Hello back  to you  loyal readers!

Welcome to you newcomers and  thanks for your interest in Gynoïdes Project!

This blog has been going dark for the last months, the explanation is simple:  the last 7 months has been Hyper busy for Gynoïdes Project.  

It has been very inspiring to meet and exchange with a massive amount of women in circus, to discuss and debates on gender in performing arts, and to get down in the studio playing with concepts of re-presentation and bring the composition essay of Bêta Test to an audience. 

In the last 7 months, when not in writing sessions for raising the appropriate fundings for this project to continue to exist,  and when not  in preparation  or  in researches and creation sessions, then I was busy trying to assemble all the informations and or to respond to all opportunities  that the project has generated.

It has been a  perpetual flow of actions keeping me to distance with this blog.  It has indeed been a challenge to  keep up with all the opportunities that the consortium and the Bêta Test has generated.  I have  tried to part in as many  lectures, presentation and interviews  and accepted as many invitations as possible  but at the end I  had to decline few and postpone some. 

After all, my main occupation is my work as  head of the bachelor of art in circus at the school of Dance and Circus in Stockholm.  In the last 7 months we have reformed the entire programme syllabus and course plans, we have produce the ensemble work of the second year students ( an awesome collaboration with innovative juggler Jay Gilligan) and we have proceed with the audition of an entire new class of students.  In september 2015, there will be around 40 students in the BA programme! My works with the students and with my team of teachers is an inspiration for my research and my artistic practice and in return my research and artistic practice feed my pedagogical input to the program.  A win win that keeps me really, really busy and well stimulated!

Here are the main Gynoïdes Project's activities since last november 2014:

-The continuation of my researches on the agency of women in circus at Stockholm University of the arts, has lead  me to study alternative  modes of composition in circus by looking into the mode of sonic interaction in circus composition, a collaboration with the sound and music team of  the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During this time, the many hours dedicated to grants applications has paid off. We have obtained the minimal necessary fundings to move on with the creation of the first full length performance of Gynoïdes Project, thanks to kulturbryggan and Musikverket!

The pre-prod of Gynoïdes the Show has officially started, the main Swedish partners are on board and  the castingis now completed.  The creation will take place in November and December 2015 at Riksteatern and the show is to be  presented by Orionteatern, Stockhom's avant -garde theatre, for 12 representations from january 6th to january 23rd 2016!

 

Now its time for a well deserve vacation.  I'll make sure to use  some of the free time to feed this blog.

Read more details about these past and upcoming events in the posts to come. 

Happy summer to everyone!
