Hosted by Lendlease and LCR, Your Stratford Stage showcases some of the best local talents from across the worlds of dance, theatre, music, arts and literature.

The British Council is due to move its global headquarters to Stratford in 2020 and has invited award-winning African hip-hop storyteller, Mr Alim Kamara, to perform at the May 16 launch party, as well as, on the May 28 Family Day. The Artist’s love for the performing arts was developed through his formative years by emulating Michael Jackson’s dance moves and playing lead roles in school plays. As part of the British Council showcase, Mr Kamara will be joined by Discover Children’s Story Centre to deliver a storytelling session of Tom Percival’s book Perfectly Normal.

 

Family-friendly entertainment on May 28 and 29 include a series of dance activities and performances from Dance Cluster East partners, including, Sadler’s Wells, Company Wayne McGregor and East London Dance.

Danced with passion and sensitivity by Candoco dancers Mr Joel Brown and Md Laura Patay, the piece is a collection of pop songs and offers audiences a potent and emotive exploration of how we fall in and out of love over and over again, often, with the same person.

On May 28 and 29 East-based Company Wayne McGregor, a world-class ensemble of dancers and resident company of Sadler’s Wells, will perform excerpts from Autobiography by British Choreographer and Director Mr Wayne McGregor. Inspired by McGregor's own DNA and 25-year choreographic archive, Autobiography features music by US electronic composer Mr Jlin, and costumes by designer Mr Aitor Throup.

East London Dance brings together a variety of performances and demonstrations on May 16, 18, 28 and 29. These range from mini dance battles and open freestyling, led by New Movementz, to all-female hip-hop dance from Myself UK and Latin American ballroom dance class from Step Change Studios.

Mr Andrew Tobin, the Project Director, IQL, Lendlease Europe, said, ‘’Stratford has a well-established and diverse cultural heritage and Your Stratford Stage is a fitting celebration for the creative talent on our doorstep. At IQL we want to champion local talent from past, present and future generations. Collaborative opportunities between local partners are increasing rapidly as our new community grows and is one of the hallmarks of this innovative and vibrant area.’’

Ms Ivy Nwanze, the Events and Engagement Manager of British Council, said, ‘’Moving our global headquarters to Stratford in 2020 will provide our organisation with the opportunity to create a space, that demonstrates the vital work we do in cultural relations. It will, also, allow us to be locally connected with the communities in Newham and beyond. Therefore, when presented with the chance to support the Your Stratford Stage event series we were keen to get involved.’’

Mr Alistair Spalding, the Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler’s Wells, said, ‘’As we look forward to opening the doors of our new theatre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2022, I’m delighted to be joining forces with our future neighbours and friends at East London Dance and Studio Wayne McGregor to share inspiring dance with local audiences and communities in Stratford.

Sadler’s Wells’ long-standing relationship with Candoco Dance Company has seen the company regularly perform on our stage for many years and we are excited to now present them as part of Your Stratford Stage in this powerful and tender piece choreographed by Arlene Phillips.’’

Ms Lucy Glover, the Company Producer of Studio Wayne McGregor, said, ‘’We are thrilled that by being part of this launch event at IQL, Company Wayne McGregor has a rare opportunity of performing before local audiences and to further build our connections with our local community in East London.’’

Ms Polly Risbridger, the Director of East London Dance, said, ‘’Programming dance for Your Stratford Stage gives East London Dance a great opportunity to showcase the incredible talent of the locally rooted artists, that we support and communities, that we work with. It allows these performers and artists to reach new audiences and for these audiences to discover the joys of dance through their work and getting involved in the free workshops we are offering. The event, also, allows East London’s established and new cultural neighbours to come together to provide a joint arts and culture programme of events, that is open to all.’’

Ms Sanaz Amidi, the Chief Executive of Rosetta Arts, said, ‘’Taking part in Your Stratford Stage will showcase some of the fantastic local Newham artistic talent working with Rosetta Arts and widen the reach of our acclaimed Mindful Arts programme. Using art and mindfulness, this is an opportunity to reach and engage new and diverse audiences in East London.’’

Mr William Chamberlain, the Founding Director of Creative Wick, said, ‘’IQL's support of the first cohort of the Creative Wick Music Academy has given a tremendous opportunity for a group of ambitious local young people from the communities surrounding the Olympic Park. I have high hopes that the chance to write, produce and perform their own songs will be a springboard to a successful career in the music industry and Creative Wick will do everything possible to help them on their journey.’’

Titanes in Spain: Making Ciudad Real in Art-Real With Community Real Included: Open Till October

 

 

|| Thursday: April 25: 2019 || ά. Titanes’ claims to be one of the biggest arts events in the world, that seeks to promote social inclusion, which is underway in Spain.  14 artists are engaged in transforming Ciudad Real, creating a giant open-air gallery:museum, designed to promote social inclusion. The initiative marks the 15th anniversary of Urban Art event and many of the young artists, who first took part are returning this year, as well-established names, to participate in this new landmark event.

The artist Mr Okuda San Miguel and his Ink and Movement team are once again teaming up with the Laborvalía association to promote the integration of people with disabilities in society and the workplace. Phase one began on April 01 and will run until October, with Ciudad Real, set to experience a cultural transformation, that, the organisers hope will go down in history because of ‘Titanes’.

The Project will convert the plains of La Mancha into an unmissable destination for art lovers. Fourteen of the biggest names on the contemporary art scene will paint nine disused silos in the region in one of the world’s biggest art events for social inclusion.

Ink and Movement is once again showcasing the talent of top international artists, accompanied by its inseparable partner, Mr Okuda San Miguel, who is curating the Project.

Titanes will involve big names from the history of the artform, including, Bicicleta sem Freio, Daniel Muñoz, Demsky J, Equipo Plástico, Nuria Mora, Nano4814 and Sixe Paredes, Fintan Magee, Hell’O, Smithe, Nychos, Ricardo Cavolo and Spok Brillor, as well as, Mr Okuda himself, to transform each silo into a monumental work of art.

The artists won’t be working alone. The ‘Titanes’ initiative seeks to stimulate social inclusion through art, with 450 members of the Laborvalía Association for the inclusion of people with disabilities working alongside the artists on various activities.

In partnership with the Provincial Government of Ciudad Real and the Laboravalía Association, the province will see their old silos given a fresh lease of life, transforming them into titanic works of art with many different styles. The project is set to be one of the most important public art events in recent years.

The Initiative marks the 15th anniversary of the first large-format urban art festival in Spain: the Urban Art event, which took place in 2004 on the Canary Islands. The original meeting was organised by Ink and Movement under its previous moniker Pluralform and was a pioneering event of its kind in Spain and beyond.

Fast forward 15 years and many of the young artists, who first took part are returning, now as well-established names, to participate in this new landmark event, ‘Titanes’.

This year is, also, the 25th anniversary of Montana Colours. The brand was involved in the first event and is still there by our side, its support undiminished.

Ink and Movement: We work in the promotion of public art creating, developing and managing cultural projects, art events and exhibitions at an international level. We develop and promote the careers of contemporary artists, connecting them with institutions, promoters and commercial brands on a global scale. A project in constant evolution and search for new challenges.

Laborvalía: Laborvalía is the result of the Occupational Centres of the province of Ciudad Real coming together around an idea and a way of working. Laborvalía works to provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities and to improve their quality of life. We use art to change the way society sees people with disabilities and to brighten up our province.:::ω.

Corendon Boeing 747 Has Had the Slowest Ever Boeing Flight Record: 12.5 Kilometres in Five Days: Then Getting Off-Loaded Onto Landing-Posture in the Coredon Hotel Garden Creating a Sight to Behold: Now the Visitors Are to Make a Go of the Boeing on the Ground

 

 

|| February 10: 2019 || ά. After a five-day transport from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Badhoevedorp, the Corendon Boeing 747 has arrived in the garden of the Corendon Village Hotel this morning. There the plane will be converted into a five-D-experience about the 747 and the history of aviation later this year. De Boeing began its last journey from Schiphol Airport on Tuesday night. The dismantled aircraft was placed on a trailer of specialised transport company Mammoet to cover the 12.5 kilometres to the hotel. During that time, the aircraft had to cross 17 ditches, highway A9 and one provincial road. The A9 was successfully crossed in the night from Friday to Saturday.

In the night from Saturday to Sunday, the transport crossed the Schipholweg, after which, it was parked backwards into the hotel garden, requiring 57 movements. The spectacular transport attracted worldwide attention and was covered by national and international media. The Boeing 747 is the former KLM aircraft 'City of Bangkok', that will be given a new final destination in the hotel garden after 30 years of reliable service. The plane is 64 metres wide, 71 metres long and it weighs 160 tonnes. To keep it safe and steady, the aircraft has been lifted on 01.5 metres high steel bases, totalling 15 tonness of steel. These are built on heavy concrete slabs, strong enough to carry the enormous weight.

De Boeing will be converted into a five-D experience later this year. Visitors will be able to walk on, over or under the plane and visit places, that are, normally, not accessible to the public. They can visit the cargo area where the luggage is loaded, learn about the fuelling of the plane, take a look in the kitchen of the business class and the cockpit on the upper deck. They can, even, do a wing walk over the thirty-metre-long wings. Visitors, also, make a journey through the history of aviation.

That begins with the ancient human desire to fly and leads them from the first serious flight attempts around 1900 to the development of the Boeing 747. The highlight of the trip is the five-D experience, in which, visitors can experience flying in all its facets. The garden, where the Boeing is placed, is, partly, an eco-zone, open to hotel guests and can be used as a festival site.

Corendon Founder Mr Atilay Uslu had booked a room in the hotel. Exactly on the spot, where, if, everything went well, the nose of the Boeing would be placed in front of the window.  ‘’When I opened the curtains this morning, I saw her in full glory. I realised that, after months of preparation, we, really, succeeded in getting the plane to its final place with a lot of fitting and measuring. That kind of takes your breath away.” Mr Uslu says.

Corendon has expressed its thanks for the co-operation of the municipality of Haarlemmermeer, government agencies, various companies and its own employees, without whom the stunt could never have been successful.

The transport of the aircraft this weekend coincided with the celebration of the first test flight of the Boeing 747 on February 09, 1969, exactly, fifty years ago. The 747 is an unique plane and was the largest aircraft in the world until 2007. It could transport 02.5 times more passengers than other conventional types. It was, also, the first wide body aircraft, with two aisles. Characteristic is, also, the upper deck, where the cockpit is located. KLM introduced the first Boeing 747 in its fleet in 1971. The 'City of Bangkok', which was added to the fleet in 1989, was, then, named by nine Thai monks. After, almost, thirty years of loyal service, the repainted aircraft now decorates the Corendon Hotel garden.

The last five-day trip of the Boeing was an impressive operation. The plane first had to be transported kilometres over the Schiphol airport area and, then, another 04.5 kilometres through the fields. Heavy transport specialist Mammoet transported the 160-tonnes aircraft on a trailer, that weighed, even, more: over 200 tonnes. The trailer divided the weight of the Boeing over 192 wheels. To make sure the trailer would not sink into the marshy land, a special road was constructed of, approximately, 02.100 metal road plates weighing 01.500 kilos each. Special bridges were built over the 17 ditches. The trailer was travelling at a speed of five kilometres per hour and was controlled remotely by people from Mammoet, who walked beside it. It was powered by two so-called power packs, each with a capacity of 390kW, generating more than 1000 hp. A total of 18 turns had to be taken during transport, of which, the first seven were on the airport.

Flying High: Woman-Artists of Art Brut: Bank of Austria Kunstforum in Vienna: February 15-June 23

 

 

 

|| January 20: 2019: Download This Piece In PDF: || ά. Flying High is the first Exhibition, devoted to female positions in Art Brut produced from 1860 until the present. The Exhibition flies high in every sense: it has gathered together 316 works by 93 women artists from 21 countries, which, in many aspects of content and aesthetics, challenge the contemporary idea of what art is. The Exhibition adopts the term Art Brut, raw art or outsider art, defined by Jean Dubuffet in 1945 as starting point for the primordial, non-academic art produced outside the cultural mainstream. Flying High is taking place in Vienna, Austria between February 15 and June 23. And, here is The Humanion’s lone voice: the entire art world across the globe has been strangled into submission, that suffers and suffocates by what we would call ‘the famine of creativity, ingenuity and imagination’ or in other words from Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, dictated onto the entire world of art, which the arts establishments and the dead and now mummified art galleries let into and seek to promote and be as dead as their promoters and with them they, then, go about annihilating all creativity. Most of what these galleries are wasting obscene amount of money promoting and calling arts, are surely going to struggle to find any space in the future dustbins. And the arts, that grow outside their scope, struggle along, while no one pays attention to them.  

Like the entire market, the market profiteers and the whole distorteddia conglomerate, imposing, dictating, directing and herding a form and manner of dehumanised mechanistic form of mimicry of life on people exactly as the perpetrator of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy does to her:his victim so that people are made to feel and, accept this as the high-truth, that they are not able to think, not able to read, not able to question, not able to learn, not able to conduct their everyday necessary tasks, not able know how to go for a walk or use a map or run their house or park their cars or find their telephone or make a telephone call or write a letter etc and everything is made easy by ‘this and that’, that these profiteers and the distorteddia conglomerate have ‘invented’ while all ‘this and that’ make them ship-loads of money, the very people are now being robbed off their natural faculties and abilities like the person, who imposes all the most cruel, most harmful, most devastating and most calculating disabling, dismantling, disfiguring, distorting, disempowering and disenfranchising a vulnerable child or vulnerable adult by imposing the dictate that that child is unable to do this and that so that the child is ripped off all her:his natural potential, day after day, week after week, month after month and it goes on, to develop and become a well-functioning adult.

Instead, by any manner of definition this vulnerable child or adult is ‘destroyed’ to the extent that she:he now can not, even, hold a spoon to drink the soup for which she:he, must, rely absolutely on her:his ‘Dictator’. We are using these two expressions to represent the two sides of the same coin: Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, applicable to the art establishments and Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, applicable to the entire world and world’s humanity whereby we are being robbed off our very humanity, all our human potentials of both what we can be and what we can do and our very human agencies and with these stripped off us what remains of us are that of a neglected, abused, harmed and made utterly devastated human soul, that has been robbed of all its potential to be and do human. We are utterly, absolutely and comprehensively dehumanised so that we know not how to be and do any longer so that we rely on absolutely to all the ‘contraptions and gadgets’, that they invented to make money so that we keep buying and using them because we no longer are able to exist without them. This is the lowest-path of the highest and guaranteed profiteering, which is guaranteed by the imposition of this Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. We are going to write a great deal more on this to present the world with the absolute monstrous dehumanisation, mercilessly being pursued by these devastating forces and the world seem to sleep walk onto the way of ‘dusty death’, as Macbeth would put it. And in this any initiative, that goes to bring that world of art, that no one knows exist and present it to the world is a refreshing thing. Flying High is such an initiative and we invite everyone to try and be there.

The diversity and heterogeneity of the works being presented in the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien demonstrate clearly that the scope of the Art Brut concept today has, over time, encompassed far more than works of the mentally ill; it, also, includes the production of mediumistic, spiritualist woman-artists, lone wolves and woman-artists with disabilities. This broadening of scope derives, not least, from the radical change in psychiatric medicine and its institutions, from formerly closed buildings to more open structures and, even, their dissolution. Contemporary Art Brut emerges today, to a great extent, from studios or from the structures created by the artists themselves.

The chronology of the exhibition starts with highlights from the historic collections of the psychiatrists Walter Morgenthaler, Stiftung Psychiatrie-Museum Bern and Hans Prinzhorn, Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg. Both collected and supported art from psychiatric institutions in the early twentieth century and produced publications on it,  Ein Geisteskranker als Künstler, 1921, Madness and Art and Bildnerei der Geisteskranken, 1922, Artistry of the Mentally Ill.

The main room of the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien is showing masterpieces from the collection of Jean Dubuffet, Collection de l’Art Brut, Lausanne, which he assembled between 1945 and 1976. A representative selection of works from the L’Aracine Collection, LaM, Lille Métropole Musée d’art moderne, d’art contemporain et d’art brut, Villeneuve d'Ascq, concludes the overview of the collections that had a decisive and formative influence on the development and history of Art Brut. Moreover, the show includes many works from important international and Austrian private collections.

The history of female Art Brut artists reflects the history of women’s emancipation on a precarious level: they have always been the outsiders among outsiders. Art Brut has never been treated on a par with the high arts. Since women, first, have to conquer their place both within Art Brut and, also, beyond feminist art, it is high time for a presentation of their works. This is the task that Flying High. Woman-Artists of Art Brut in the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien has set itself.

The exhibition demonstrates that aesthetic points of view are gaining more and more relevance as opposed to diagnostic criteria and biography and, also, the artists’ eccentricity. Its inclusion of works by a diversity of women artists creates a multifaceted panorama of creative powers of expression: wherein lies the difference between the ‘individual mythologies’, Harald Szeemann, that Art Brut is based on depending on whether it was produced by female or male artists? Do women’s works really tell a different story from men’s? How are differences in production methods, media and iconographies visualised? The show pursues these questions and reflects the direct and primordial, frequently, also, subversive, expressive power and quality of Art Brut created by women. Visualising the differences and the potential similarities in the expressiveness of female and male artists by juxtaposing examples will be the topic of a different exhibition.

As in everything, this, also, applies to art: only what can be seen, exists. Curators: Ingried Brugger and Hannah Rieger and Assistant Curator: Veronika Rudorfer.
