[Nettime-nl] Fwd: performers wanted/performers gevraagd

Excuses vor het engels

This is a forwarded message
From: gene <gene at adventurebarbie.net>

my appologies for any cross/double/mistaken postings: this is very urgent

for my research project in Dasarts/AHK/amsterdam, i need 144 female 
there is no money i can offer
i will somehow take care of coffee and bread etc
if you are not female and u dont know any females: please feel invited 
to the showcase on the 28th of november (place tbc)
if you are and/or know female performers please forward this to them
if you are female and performer and above the age of 16 and you are in 
amsterdam on the date below: please consider this an invitation
to join the project: singular strategies
the work will be purely physical, therefore some physical abilities will 
be required, some stamina will come in handy

an abstract about my research can be found on 
drawings: <adventurebarbie.net>

the performance is creating an experimental setup:
every (group of) performer(s) gets an exact physical experiment to fullfill
every performer is aswell the subject as the object of their experiment
there is a log kept and a simultaneous translation

a test case, to see if and how this works, and to invite some people to 
see it, will happen on the 28th of november
either in dasarts, but if a big enough group actually wants to join i 
hope to get a bigger theater/space
the scenes and numbers of performers will build up as follows: 0, 1, 1, 
2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 (these are fibonacci nrs)
so: experiment nr 1 has 0 performers,
nr 2 , one performer does: 12 experiments/60 minutes
nr 3 is the same person
nr 4 , 1 performer joins, doing 10 experiments/50 minutes
nr 5 1 performer joins doing 9 experiments/45 minutes
nr 6 3 performers join doing 8 experiments/40 minutes etcetera
as we imagine a performance of 65 minutes and every experiment taking 
about five minutes

rehearsal and practice will be on the 26th/27th/morning of 28th, i 
imagine every individual performer will need to spend a minimum
of 3 hours with me in those three days, to get instructed
any additional half hour a performer can spend will result in an extra 
role to perform
there will be big drawings explanations scores etc to help the process
explaining others will be encouraged

if you are interested in joining the project, even if you only have a 
minimum amount of time:
write me with the subject  : singular strategies
let me know when you could work , exactly, and how much time you r 
willing and able to spend

hope to hear from you!

greetings barbara gene
