LIVE REMIX: Stage Adaptations in the New Media Age
Ivo van Hove (Netherlands)
Sunday, June 28
Join us for an inside look at the proliferation of live performances devised from film and digital media.
FREE EVENT in three parts, guest curated by Tom Sellar:
A discussion with Ivo van Hove about his oeuvre of film-to-stage adaptations.
Performing Sources and the New Media Age A panel with John Collins (Elevator Repair Service), Doris Mirescu (Dangerous Ground Productions) and Ryan McNamara (Me3m Ballet) on using iconic film sources to create new forms of live art.
Screening of Ivo van Hove’s 2009 debut film: Amsterdam
Live Remix will examine van Hove’s strategies for making theater out of radical postwar films, with the use of live video feeds and consider van Hove’s work alongside American contemporaries working with iconic films, digital sources, and archival video. As digital technology presents new opportunities for live performance, stage artists from all disciplines are expanding the limits and forms of adaptation. How can the stage transform such sources? What are the possibilities for artists and audiences? How does the stage director discover live (or remediated) equivalents for filmmakers’ own aesthetics?
This is a part of a series of programming related to the performance Ivo van Hove’s work After the Rehearsal/Persona, coming to the 2015 Fringe Festival.
11:00am–12:30pm Screening of Amsterdam Register
1:00–2:00pm Conversation with Ivo Van Hove Register
Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
