      Turning Point   [2015]
    • For
      fixed media (gallery installation with 3 different frequency speakers arranged in surround space)
    • Duration
      6’30’’
    • Description
      The work Turning Point from 2015 is the first collaboration of painter Pim Piët with the Polish composer Jerzy Bielski (1984). One speaker had to be mounted outside the panel, and this was a new challenge for Piët, not only in its design but also as a challenge to strengthen the relationship with the painting itself. The rotating object, mounted in the panel becomes the intermediate and seems to catch signals, again blurring the sliding scale of the visual plane towards aural space where boundaries become vague. That idea is exactly how the exhibition design and arrangement came to be. The wall is not only the carrier of the work, but it becomes a part of the overall concept to connect separate works with each other in a new manner. A movement of a visual object through space towards sound/noise. It is the viewer’s task to undergo the musical experience.

    • Description
      Wearing skin-tight playsuits, Aloun Marchal and Henrique Furtado weigh each other up, stare at each other, stand firm in the middle of the stage and let out a cry from deep inside : the challenge is laid down. Face to face, close to each other, conniving and provoking at the same time, they are getting ready. They explore a wide range of sounds and movements with clashing styles, from sports fighting to teasing childish games, from rumbling noises to lullabies, from straightforward breathing to bestial yelling. Progressive mechanisms drive the performers even further into their exercise, moving disjointedly and opening their throats more and more. The pas de deux glides from controlled violence to sensuality, which are both disturbingly based on listening, mimicry and exchange of movements. Progressively, voices and faces, laughing and cruel, get tangled, mixed up and rival each other. Henrique
      Furtado and Aloun Marchal are ready, at last…

    • For
      2 actors and 2 musicians (accordion and bass guitar)
    • Duration
      55'
    • Description
      While the common winter damselfly - the popular dragonfly species - can be seen near the lake or by the river, common fears are found literally everywhere. Sometimes larger, another time smaller, lurking in day and night. Where do they come from? How do they work? Why are we scared and what's the purpose of it? These and other questions are taken up by Coincidentia Group in their latest performance, inviting young viewers (from 7 years on) to a peculiar laboratory of fear and joint exploration of the essence of fear. It's a crazy journey into the depths of human head, bizarre dreams, good night's tales and cartoons, realised through a collage of fantasies and theatrical experiments. In the course of stage improvisations, based on scientific texts, dramatic, or authentic children's stories, artists recreate the fear mechanisms by playing around with conventions and form.
