UpStage Apero @ Electropixel

An “UpStage Apero” will be held at Electropixel in Nantes, France on Thursday 24 May. The event begins with an UpStage workshop, then a presentation by Helen Varley Jamieson including the announcement of cyberformances to be remounted at the 121212 festival, a jam by workshop participants and two cyberformances that have been previously presented at UpStage festivals: “Flat Earth” and “Veni! Ελθέ! Dodji! to the Zapata Private/Pirate Birthday Party. And, Vice Versa …”.

Online audiences are welcome to join the performances, which will begin at 18.00 CET (find your local time here):

  • 18:10: “Flat Earth”
  • 18:30: “Veni! Ελθέ! Dodji! to the Zapata Private/Pirate Birthday Party. And, Vice Versa …”

“Flat Earth”, by Petyr Veenstra, Floris Sirag and Gabriella Sacco, premiered last year at the 11:11:11 UpStage Festival. A poetic journey on the source of ideas, it plays with perception, the focus, the distraction of it, time, size and distance, the imagination, and the memory of things and scenes.

From the 080808 festival, we have “Veni! Ελθέ! Dodji! to the Zapata Private/Pirate Birthday Party. And, Vice Versa …”, a “cyber dedication to the birthday celebration of Emiliano Zapata” by Miljana Perić, Jelena Milosavljević Rubil & Julijana Protić. Partysans are invited to Come! to listen and play music, make some noise, to clap, chant, chit- and cheat-chat in the name of Zapata, or just in their own name.

Electropixel is organised annually by APO33 and this year takes place 21-26 May.
