A lecture performance by Antonia Baehr and Jule Flierl

Antonia Baehr, the Artist in Residence at The Dynamic Archive and Schwankhalle Bremen, will give an online performance "A space to look through" together with Jule Flierl.

Jule Flierl and Antonia Baehr met through the transmission of a score. When Antonia Baehr taught Jule Flierl the score for Antonia Baehr's personal piece "My Dog is My Pi-ano," the two sparked a reflection and practice in the gap between written instructions and artistic processes. In their new lecture performance "A Space to Look Through," the two develop further those questions of score and performance that they encountered in their recent collaboration for film, "Die Hörposaune."

Jule Flierl works in conversation with historical, fictional and contemporary voices such as Valeska Gert and Katalin Ladik. Scores are the membranes through which Flierl makes contact with her artistic elective affinity. She asks into the paper and translates the re-sponses she receives.

Antonia Baehr has been working with scores for many years. They are a special way for her to connect and create collaborations. They are also a way of reading the world. But how readable is the world? And how does one read in an unreadable world? Scores, for Baehr, are carriers of desire and are emotively charged. They are birthday gifts, portraits of friend-ships, portraits in animal metaphors, double portraits. They have an addressee. What hap-pens when the addressee changes, or slips into other bodies? For the online component of the "Dynamic Archive," Baehr, in collaboration with Jule Flierl et al., wants to create some scores of selected works for which this question could be relevant. The dynamics of authorship and the different perspectives of the notating, archiving persons shall get their voices.

The online performance will take place on 4.2.2021 at 19h on a zoom link.

Jule Flierl is a dance and voice artist from Berlin. She develops practices that conceive of the voice as a dancer, translating dance into the auditory realm. Her practice lives between experimental choreography and somatic singing methods, in which she develops scores to unsettle the relationship between seeing and hearing. She revives and continues the lega-cy of Valeska Gert, avant-garde dancer from 1920's Berlin, who first conceptualized the term SoundDance: to dance with one's voice. She hosts the voice performance series FROM BREATH TO MATTER in Berlin. For 2021 she collaborates in different formats with choreographer Antonia Baehr and SoundDance artist Irena Z.

WORKSHOP by Antonia Baehr

This practical workshop is about working with scores. We will write and perform scores and short pieces for each other based on portraits and interviews. We will approach imita-tion and imitation in our own performance sketches. We will practically explore the method of "Alba Emoting" and feminist scores and archives.

Conditions for participation are a playful approach and the curiosity and courage to per-form and work in groups. Participation does not require any special training. Composers, sound artists, performers and choreographers are also very welcome.
