Intimate Open Studios #2
Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th May
iii workspace, Willem Dreespark 312, The Hague
Following the success of it’s launch edition last Fall, Intimate Open Studios returns to present works in progress by iii artists, residents and guests.
Intimate Open Studios is a curated public event which offers a tasting selection of intimate sensory experiences. iii opens its doors to provide an informal setting for the presentation, demonstration, testing and discussion of new works by featured artists. As feedback is essential in the creation process, we welcome you to come and give your input as well as have the chance to experience the works firsthand in our studio while they are still in development.
For this edition we will present the culmination of research by resident Mint Park, guest duo Maarten Heijnens & Anthony van Gog and more to be confirmed. Watch this space, more details coming soon.
Heartscore – Maarten Heijnens & Anthony van Gog
“Heartscore is our second “physical score”. It is a composition in which the live heartbeat of the performer(s) forms the metronome of the score itself. The live heartbeat of the performer(s) thus determines the tempo at which the score is performed. Contrary to the classic tradition of a rigid conductor’s beat, we give the conductive function to the heartbeat. By creating a dialogue between the organic (of the heart) and the rationality of a score, we want to offer space and give language to the body itself, so that we are able to (re-)meet each other at the most intimate and existential level; as breathing, pounding and living bodies.”
Heartscore is co-produced by Veem House for Performance, Makershuis Tilburg (in collaboration with DansBrabant) and Via Zuid. It will premier at Veem House for Performance and be on tour from September 2021 onwards.
