Experimental LAB

The game of life

za. 04 juni 2022 14:30

What happens when a mathematical concept is the foundation of composing and improvising music and interpreted by visual arts?

Experimental LAB with the live art performance ‘Game of Life’ will investigate this explorative way of creating music through building blocks based on the famous mathematician John Horton Conway’s Game of Life. A cellular automaton game with four simple rules, which evolution is determined by its initial state and therefore a zero-player game.

Six musicians and one visual artist are going to take you to the soundscapes of „Life“. The group consists of one visual artist (currently studying at KABK) and six musicians who met at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague. The group represents people from Poland, Hungary, Taiwan, Norway and Denmark with very different musical and artistic backgrounds which gives the group an unique instrumentation; piano, bass, guitar, percussion, saxophone, flute and visual art. Translating the rules from Conway’s Game of life into rules applied in composing and improvising music creates an interesting outcome which reflects the core idea and visuals feeling of the mathematical game. The group experiments with opposite concepts such as light and dark, systematic and random, sound and silence, order and chaos. Combining these elements in collaboration with visual art gives the audience the opportunity to experience the game evolve supported by music within a minimalistic and improvised soundspace.

The output is unpredictable. The performances will always turn out differently, since it is determined by the starting point of the game and the rules that apply in that specific situation. Everything can happen.

Jlohmann Performance Art

Being Audience|Being Performer

vr. 10 juni 2022 20:30

Being Audience|Being Performer is dealing with the roles we assume both consciously and unconsciously. In the context of theatre that is the role of the audience for the spectator and the role of the performer for the actor. Here the spectator is usually in a passive position, funktioning as an observer and as a judge over the performer. We observe the same kind of relationship in the political landscape and the daily issues our society is dealing with both on a national and international/global level.

Being Audience|Being Performer is trying to challenge this traditional relationship by inviting the audience to become performers and actors themselves. This counts for inside, as well as outside of the theatre.
"This piece is only a rehearsal"​

The real performance is happening outside of the theatre. People need to take responsibility for the issues we face as a society and become actors themselves to create a better alternative, instead of spectating and judging the political performers on stage. In the theatre, when the actions are happening inside the auditorium, that becomes the stage. Outside the theatre the stage moves from the parliaments into the streets.

**Over Jlohmann Performance Art **
Jakob Lohmann is an artist from Germany, born in 1995. He discovered circus during his high school time where he joined the local youth circus. Finishing high school he continued to pursue his circus activities professionally at Codarts Circus Arts in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. During the 4 year degree he created various performances and started to find and develop his own artistic vision and style as performer.

Using floor acrobatics and balances as his main tools, his work thematises the actor/spectator relationship within the performative space.
In 2019 he joined the Anfibia Project, an interdisciplinary performers training project in Bologna, Italy which finished in October 2020.
Recently his performance Being Audience|Being performer received a nomination for the Stockholm Fringe Award in the category ‚Spoken Word and Theatre‘
