ARé Performing Arts Festival -  Performance and Workshop Performance 

The first performance and workshop took place on Saturday 20th April 2019 at the ACCEA/ NPAK Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art , Yerevan, Armenia. It focused on children with autism. The participating children had different grades of autism. First I performed a short Performance related to Connected – Not Connected for the children and the audience (parents,general audience). After finishing the performance and a short talk I conducted the workshop performance with the assistance of Hasmik Tangyan (pedagogue) and Evelina Garegin Hakobyan.(student Theater and Cinematograhic Institute). All children belong to“My Way“Educational-rehabilitation Daycare Center for Children and Teenagers with Autism in Yerevan.

On 23th of April 2019 I went to the SOS-Kinderdorf  in Kotayk near Yerevan  for to give the same performance and a workshop performance. Here I I had a mixed group of children between 13 to 17 years old.The well-known pianist Nare Korayan was assisting  me. The children have partly no parents nor family or come from families where parents are unable to rise their children. Also just like the previous workshop after each step I gave a ste expalation and the oppertunity for the children to give their opinion or ask questions. 

By the performance and workshop in the SOS- Kinderdorf at the end several children related the workshop to their experience and situations they encounter already in their young lifes. Furthermore boys and girls enjoyed to work together , because in most cases they do gender seperated activities

III Bad Video Art Festival 

III Bad Video Art Festival will be held in Moscow 21-31 March 2019 at Zverev Center of Contemporary Art.

Novoryazanskaya Ulitsa, 29 строение 4, Moscow, Russia, 105066

 

Curators of the Bad Video Art Festival Natalia Monakhova and Andrey Slaschilin propose to study extreme forms of video art. According to the curators, videos shown at the festival are at the intersection of bad art, bad painting and bad cinema (B-movies, cult, camp, trash) but still have not been introduced as an independent category for profound studying. As the issues of quality and boundaries of art are of topical interest, it is necessary to single out certain video art works as bad videos or "B-videos". For the first time ever the conception of B-video will be presented to the public in the gallery in order to initiate a discussion and further studies.

 

My bad video "Dancing Pink" will be on screen 21st of March in the section "Fat" starting at 19.00 h
