October 19-23, 2018: PoP Up - Marseilles , France
Final Development Residency for PoP Up

This residency in Marseille will allow the "PoP Up" team to critically analyze their performance in Tours and to make any final changes to the piece before publishing and touring the work. The focus of the residency will be on sound.

«PoP Up» is an artistic treasure hunt 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.

The project is a collaboration between the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (NY, NY) and the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (Tours, France). In March 2018, the creative team mapped and conducted interviews in the St. Henri neighborhood of Marseille.The collected interview material will inspire the treasure hunt map as well as "performance palettes" or short compositions of music, theater, and/or visual art. The compositions are then remixed through the soundpainting language in performance.

POP UP - an Artistic Treasure Hunt is a series of short, site-specific performances composed for a neighborhood. Performances last from 10-20 minutes each and are inspired by interviews with community members. The collected dreams, desires and anecdotes of local community members are then interpreted by the performers and are sculpted through a live-composing sign language called Soundpainting. The public engages in a treasure hunt, following clues and a beautiful hand-made map which lead them to pop-up performances all throughout the neighborhood.
