Residence N°3 - INTERMEDIOS

INTERMEDIOS takes as a work proposal the idea of creating a program of diverse short pieces comprising an evening. Specifically, it would consist of two solos and a duet with the adission of a short piece by a guest artist. Each piece in itself and the presentation as a whole seek to explore the concept of intermediate space. We define this space as one that mediates between things, a space that can be located -visibly or invisibly- within certain bonds, a space where we circulate through, and that its nature we perceive with certain ambiguity: memory, family affections, divided geography, languages that coexist, professional occupations, our relationship to material things, relationships between individuals and with the same stage phenomenon.

“Intermedio”, in Spanish, refers also to theatre interval, the pause or break, when the performance action stops or is suspended, opening a gap between act and act or piece and piece. It is a moment where the action is arrested, involving at the same time an activity that allows a change for the subsequent continuity of the action. INTERMEDIOS takes this moment of arrest/movement as an element and resource of research. We take the term in both meanings: as pause/break and as an in-between space of movement and mediation. We see this space as one whose nature often escapes us and requires an arrest, a break, or even a rupture in order to be perceived. This ambivalence and singularity inspires us.

These two weeks residence give us the chance to dive in a first phase of research for this project. We will begin to look for material and resources for the development of the two solo-pieces of the program, as well as, a departing point of reflection about its presentation.

Fernando N. Pelliccioli and Carlos Osatinsky met each other attending dance studies in the Taller de Danza Contemporánea of the San Martín Theatre in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2000 they travelled to Europe to widen their experience both personally and professionally. Since then, they have worked as freelance dancers in different projects  across the European
scene - mainly in Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Germany.
Alongside their individual experiences as performers and creators with other artists, they embarked on a form of creative collaboration, impelled by the search for a more honest scenic language, researching different interactive modes of relationship between performers, performance and spectators. They look for more open forms of composition, integrating set scores with improvisational tools in an attempt to create scenic experiences that offer a deeper sense of risk, openness and aliveness. Under the title “Espacio Propio.Augenblick”, they delivered a series of workshops where they share and develop the elements explored in their work. In spite of the fact that now they reside outside Argentina, they continue working, teaching and creating in their country of origin, developing different choreographic and educational experiences with artists residing there, mainly in the province of Tucumán, in the northwest. At the moment both reside in Berlin.

Their main projects are:
2009 “((SEA))” a dance duet, presented in Barcelona.
2008  “Caer” created in residency in the Museum of the National University of Tucumán, with the support of Fani Benages Arts Escéniques (Barcelona) and the Municipality of San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina. Presented in Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, and Tucumán.
2007 “Tambien Tan Poco”, an improvisation performance for 11 performers in Tucumán, Argentina.
2005 “Pido el Silencio” choreography directed for the Group of Contemporary Dance of Tucumán “La inmediatez de la presencia pura” an improvisation duet, Argentina.

At present, they collaborate with:
Helena Lizari (Amsterdam/Barcelona) & Fani Benages Arts Escéniques (Barcelona).
Netzwerk AKS – Andrea K. Schlehwein (Austria).
Cia. Toula Limnaios  (Berlin).
Heike Hennig (Leipzig) & Lautten Compagnie (Berlin).
Irina Pauls (Leipzig)
Lilian Mirkin & Silvina Koss (Argentina)
