No. 5: "The Vanishing Meeting" + "Fourteen Functional Failures"
The Vanishing Meeting
This performance results from the gradual erosion of a group practice into a solo practice. In a room, a person talks about things that may never take place. Utterances addressed both to no one and to everyone inquire into the power of imagination. These suggestions take the audience on a journey that begins in the very room they are in, before drifting away into a land of science fiction.
Concept: Ana Laura Lozza, Bárbara Hang | Performance: Ana Laura Lozza
Fourteen Functional Failures
fourteen functional failures is a series of failures executed by Lee Meir. The project practices questions regarding rhythm and physical time within complex relations between language, body, voice, and sound. failures n#7 & n#9 will be shown at Tanzfabrik. failure n#7 focuses on the gap created between the body, anchored to the uncertainty of now, and the privilege of displacement from the now, which language enables. failure n#9 activates a multiplicity of speeches and sound-actions in rigid momentary rhythmic structures. failures n#4, n#5, n#7 and n#9 have been presented at Nah Dran, ada Studio, Berlin / Vulva Club, ausland, Berlin / Die Lust am Text, Tanzquartier Wien.

Thus far, Temporary Archipelago has presented 5 editions. For Temporary Archipelago no. 1, we orchestrated an event at Tanzfabrik Berlin that presented the beginning of four works with separate authors. In Temporary Archipelago no. 2 we collaborated for the creation of Interluding, an exhibition-performance that examined each other’s previous works from for mutual themes, urgencies, and gestures. For Temporary Archipelago no. 3 we planned a lecture-performance in which we will reflect upon proximity and contemporaneity immersed in a cloud of fog. The concept “A Room full of Cloud” has not yet been realized. For Temporary Archipelago no 4 we turned to collective writing for the online journal Reciprocal Turn.
