een soft erotische voorstelling over zo’n beetje alles

posterDEFPARADE 2011. 23-26 Juni Rotterdam, 1-3 Juli Den Haag. 20-26 Juli Utrecht. 5-10 Augustus Amsterdam

Wij brengen deze zomer een ode aan het publiek. Aan u.
Wij geven u humor, sex, destructie, ontroering en een onverwacht moment. Omdat wij denken dat u dat wil zien. In een ultieme poging tot entertainment brengen 5 jonge, zeer fysieke, spelers rauw, muzikaal theater.

MTG BLONT (Bas van Rijnsoever & Floor van Leeuwen) won in 2008 de Parade Parel met ZO komt de naakte waarheid aan haar licht. Over deze voorstelling schreef de pers:

“enerverende Parade-performance vol bizarre stunts, en potentieel pijnlijke scènes (…) Onvoorspelbaar en grillig, zoals maar weinig voorstellingen dat echt kunnen zijn. (De Volkskrant)

“verrast in alle opzichten (…) deze voorstelling is de parel op de Parade en een absolute must see” (theaterjournaal.nl)

bye bye Pristina

Pristina’s chaos makes me dizzy

Pristina’s prizes make me rich

Pristina’s artists drive me crazy

Pristina’s smog makes me sick

Pristina’s girls make me gaze

Pristina’s politics makes me cynical

Pristina’s climat makes me lazy

Pristina’s peja gets me drunk

Pristina’s proudness makes me jealous

Pristina’s boys make me look gay

Pristina’s freedom makes me doubt it

Pristina’s kitchen makes me fat

somehow I love this city

somehow Pristina’s makes me sing

somehow I’m sure we’ll be back soon

if that’s ok with Pristina

video shoot

We took the whole day to shoot a videoclip in the raw Prishtina sceneries. The idea was to take THE ARTCORE image (like on the posters and cd) and turn it around. We’re still standing with our backs to the camera, but instead of taking a picture of a walking band we stood still for ten minutes per location and filmed the movement around us. In a traffic jam at the Bill Clinton boulevard, between the students at the library, on the NEWBORN statue in front of a shopping area… a lot of recognizable Prishtina spots and several shots per location. Now the consequence of this image is that for making good material we had to stand absolutely still for several minutes per shot, some shots ten minutes (to be able to speed up traffic in the montage), some shots 3 but in the end of the day, when we called it “a wrap”, we had been standing still for more then two hours. The impact of doing ABSOLUTELY nothing is unbelievable. Especially when the world around you moves like an aggressive city and the (young) people walking around are reacting quite loud and obnoxious on your presence… stand still, stand still, stand still!

But in the end of this long day of doing a lot to do nothing we have a lot of material for vj-ing and a nice clip for U TURN (available soon) therefore satisfaction is overruling the being tired. Especially cause the image that says ARTCORE was lively spread and people are starting to recognize us here not only by our rock music but also for our marching and standing still:) weird muziki guys from amsterdam
