April 23-May 2: Pop-Up - Marseille, France

"Pop-Up" is a scavenger hunt of performances designed to spark communication and connection between community members. Short, site-specific pieces of music, theater, dance and visual art appear on the street, in windows, parks, plazas and businesses of a specific neighborhood. The performances are inspired by real stories collected through interviews with local residents and business owners. Artists meet one-on-one with locals to gather stories about the neighborhood. French cartographer, Julien Rodriguez, then transmutes the stories into a pictorial, hand-drawn map which provides clues about the location of the performances. Neighborhood stories are refracted through the lens of music, dance, visual art or theater appearing in the very place where the story was collected or took place. The material is further transformed by a composer/conductor who sculpts the artists' performances through a live-composing sign language called Soundpainting. Pieces are poetic, transitory, alternately abstract, hilarious or poignant but always surprising. The project is designed to connect people by highlighting the extraordinary within the ordinary; to shift the way we see a familiar space by peeping into the desires and concerns of the inhabitants through poetic, momentary dreamscapes.
VENUE: Lieux Public

PHONE: 33 (0) 4 91 03 81 28
April 23-May 2: TBD
The project is a collaboration between the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (NY, NY) and the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (Tours, France). In March, the creative team will conduct interviews and tour potential performance sites in Marseille.The collected interview material inspires a memory map and "palettes" or short compositions by the performers. The compositions are then remixed through the soundpainting language in performance. The company will offer community Soundpainting workshops leading up to the performance so that community members can participate in key scenes.
