    Vleeshal @ Amsterdam Art Weekend: Performance Martina-Sofie Wildberger

    In its nomadic programme Vleeshal goes on tour, organising exhibitions and other events in collaboration with venues in the Netherlands and abroad. During Amsterdam Art Weekend, Vleeshal presents the performance I/WANT/TO/SAY/SOMETHING by Martina-Sofie Wildberger at project space ROZENSTRAAT – a rose is a rose is a rose.

     

    In her work Wildberger focuses on the power of spoken text. In the performance, three performers, including Wildberger, loop the words I/WANT/TO/SAY/SOMETHING in different rhythms, intensities, and spatial configurations. They examine how meaning changes through the tone of their voices and their physical interaction with the space, creating an environment that can be calm, loud, alarming, solitary, or comfortable. Always connected to each other, at times the performers speak together and at other times alone. In this collective act of speaking, they maintain an individual voice that explores different situations where language creates, transforms, and sometimes loses its power.

     

    Martina-Sofie Wildberger (1985, Zürich) obtained a Master of Fine Arts from the Haute école d’art et de design – Genève (HEAD) (2011) and a Master’s degree in Art History from the Université de Genève (2014). She has shown her performances and has participated in exhibitions at the Centre Culturel Suisse (Paris); La Kunsthalle Mulhouse (France); Kunstmuseum Glarus; Fri-Art (Fribourg); Kunsthaus Aarau; Palais de l’Athénée (Geneva); Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève; SALTS (Birsfelden); Kunsthaus Baselland; and Tinguely Museum (Basel). Wildberger did various artist residencies in New York, Berlin and Paris and she was 2018 fellow at the Istituto Svizzero di Roma in Italy. Wildberger has received the Swiss Art Award in 2012 and in 2019 she won the Manor Kunstpreis Schaffhausen.

     

    Performed by: Martina-Sofie Wildberger, Tobias Bienz, Denise Hasler

    DNK DAYS concert: “Dante Boon Plays Rhodes with Sijstermans and Cater”
    ROZENSTRAAT – A rose is a rose is a rose

    “Dante Boon Plays Rhodes with Sijstermans and Cater”

     

    DNK Days, in collaboration with ROZENSTRAAT, is delighted to present a concert under the guidance of Dante Boon. Dante is an Amsterdam based pre-eminent pianist specialising in experimental and Wandelweiser music. We invited Dante to create a program for the ROZENSTRAAT – A Rose is A Rose is A Rose gallery space where he will play a Rhodes piano. The Rhodes is a classic electro-mechanical keyboard, producing sound with keys and hammer, much like a piano, with metal tines replacing the piano’s strings. Creating tones from delicate to rough, from soft to loud. An incredibly versatile instrument.

     

    This concert will be in two parts, solo and with small ensemble. Dante will be joined by Germaine Sijstermans, a young Dutch clarinettist and composer, currently making waves among the quiet and gentle music circles, and Seamus Cater of DNK Days, playing duet concertina.

     

    Dante Boon – Rhodes piano
    Germaine Sijstermans – clarinet
    Seamus Cater – duet concertina

     

    Works by Boon, Gidron, Cater, Cage, Brandes, Houben, Vriezen, Sijstermans, and Frey
