Alpina Huus. House of Deep Transformation in 11 Acts

28.03.15

4 pm to 2 am

ALPINA HUUS is a day of performances articulated around communal practice within domestic environments, and the use of performance as a subtle act of utopian resistance. The Schinkel Pavillon is transformed into an invisible stage for a day of continuous performative experiments, where multiple narratives tangle and untangle among an audience that never fully knows what is or isn’t staged. The line between a spectacle and the typical course of an art gathering is blurred, pushing the limits of, and sometimes merging private and public spheres.

Unstaged performance is bound to act as a stimulus that is almost invisible; the banal converges with the exceptional, with performers and props blending among the audience and vice versa. The performer is not placed on a stage, but rather hijacks a social spectacle that is already and inevitably occuring. Starting in the day and amplifying as the night falls, the script is devised according to an intuitive schedule, from clubbing to bed time story scenarios.

With performances, actions, and interventions by:

Pauline Beaudemont, Donatella Bernardi, Laurent Bruttin, Maud Constantin, Dawn Mok, Christopher Füllemann, Gilles Furtwängler, Julian Goethe, Lauren Huret, Wojciech Kosma, John Monteith, Normal Love (Pauline Boudry and Ben Kaan), Guillaume Pilet, Tatiana Rihs, Anne Rochat, Ramaya Tegegne, and Alvaro Urbano.

Curated by Elise Lammer and Denis Pernet

Assistant curator Tommy Camerno
