Music Theatre:“I”Fantasie - Rencontre between Debussy and Du Li Niang

It’s a dream within a dream. In his impressionist music, Debussy, interpreted by a female pianist, comes across Du Liniang, a fictional character from Tang Xianzu’s play The Peony Pavilion. The unexpected dream in the garden, eventually, leads to a romantically tragic ending.

In Rencontre between Debussy and Du Liniang, two masterful art forms rencontre, one of the most rewarding and ancient Chinese music drama Kunqu opera and Claude Debussy’s piano music. This site-specific music theatre aims to recontextualised the connection between performance and expression of eastern and western culture throughout time, genre and gender. It celebrates a transcultural influence that we all share in the current era.

Through the swirling music of Debussy and the elegant gestures of Du Liniang, the audience would often meet a sense of déjà vu. Du Liniang is a déjà vu to Debussy. So does Debussy to “I” in “my” dream. Piano and Kunqu Opera are often seen as two isolated island, yet the work builds a bridge in between. When the boundaries got broke, dream and reality merges. The Stage becomes a grey zone and the theatre transforms.

【Performance】Next Performance

PerformanceNext Performance

Artist: MIAO Jiaxin

Planner: ZHANG Hanlu

Time:April 8th, 2016 (Friday) 19:30-20:30

Location: Exhibition Hallat 1st floor of MoCA

 

Introduction:

The first stage of MIAOJiaxin’s works is photography, and then the performance art; now he is focusedon the practice of cross-media performance. His own body is usually a part ofhis works: curling up naked in the street of NYC, being beaten when hiding inmother’s suitcase and ritually performing his another personality as a Chinesebusinessman in a suit. He once transformed his work studio in Brooklyn into areal-time monitoring cage and lent it for $1 per night to those who werelooking for a place to stay. What his works have been trying to explore is theambiguity and tension between the individual and the authority, also theoperation of identity cognition, race, gender, sex, social status and power.

 

The performance at MoCAShanghai is the latest presentation of his Next Performance series. Mr. Miaonames his various performance art works at different occasions, institutes andcountries since 2015 Next Performance, which he tries to break the fetter ofthe theme and emphasise the performance itself and the communication with theaudience through the language of body and action. Quote Mr. Miao’s own words,“Next Performance refers to the one after the previous performance, or theprevious one before this performance……Even if there is no Next Performance,there will be another Next Performance. Next Performance doesn't necessarilyfollow something or is followed by something. Next Performance is the present,you and me. This very moment, which is blank, hesitant and serious, is becomingthe Next Performance properly.” In this performance, the artist will use aseries of groceries to connect his language of action and demonstrate ritualbehaviours. Behind all the expected or unexpected improvised scenes, Mr. Miaowill presents the coexistence of individual and authority peacefully, and hewill show the passion and assumption of the individual artist to connect withthe pyramid of the arts world.

Goodnight NY

Visiting the exhibition brings you only a tip of the full vision of Shanghai. Therefore, MoCA has planned an upcoming special outdoor event, a guided tour into the deepest lanes and alleys, to explore the full Shanghainess of Shanghai with you.


When speaking of ‘Nong tang (Alleys)’, old towns such as Nanshi,Zhabei are names to be recalled most frequently. Generally speaking, impression on the alleys of Shanghai has strong link with rows of Shikumen Architectures as well as the bustling street life. On the contrary, few would discern the connection between Shikumen and high-grade French Concession; instead, they deem the two as totally impertinent. However, there are numerous small alleys with distinct characteristics within the area of French concession. Let’s step into the Nongtang and savor a special ‘Nongtang Trip’.

Tutor: Mu Jin

Time: June 13th, 2015-June 14th, 2015 (Saturday- Sunday), 10:00AM-17:00PM

Form:

The first day will focus on the analysis of classic documentaries from home and abroad. Emphases will be laid on special and unforeseen circumstances during the filming of documentaries; how cellphones have advantages over other devices during this process; how to use a simple device like a cellphone to shoot emergency, as well as how the distinguishing feature of phone shooting can be merged into the originality of a documentary.

Introduction:

The development of an era is accompanied by its unique way of recording: from hand written journal to online blog, and to mobile movie. Everyone can shoot and make movies without the limitation of time and space. A cell phone is probably the recording tool of closest touch with our life. Its portability, mobility and high efficiency make its shooting all pervasive, and new life is thus injected into the production of documentaries when there is a breakthrough in tradition.The plebification of mobile movies’ mode of discourse indicates the coming of a new era in which documentaries will be re-interpreted.

During our first mobile movie workshop at the beginning of 2015, many has learned how to shoot poetic movies. In our coming workshop, tutor Mu Jin will combine “recording” with “state of living” closely, and teach the technique of recording with phone. Through learning, let us produce well made documentaries with cell phones that we get along with every day.

【Workshop】Mandala with Strawberry

Guide: Xu Ping
Time: 2.30-4.00, May.24th(Sunday), 2015


Location: MoCA Pavilion (Near Gate No.7 of Renmin Park, No.231, West Nanjing Road)
‘Art as symptom; art as healing.’


Introduction of the workshop:
Mandala perception painting is one of a serie of psychology practitioner, Jiezi Xuping’s Mandala mental creativity workshops.


Originally, ‘mandala’ is an esoteric Dharma of Buddhism. A visualized Mandala, is regarded as a mirror of ones’s real disposition and an epitome of the boundless universe. Mandala is constant state of balance, symbolizing the unity of all opposites. It contains both Yin and Yang, heaven and hell. Only when we are willing to face our own fear and the dark side of ourselves has life the chance to convert.


In May, the so-called heyday of strawberries, the sweet fragrance of strawberries is tantalizing. In this workshop, food , sense and psychology will be linked together through Mandala painting. Let the taste on your tongue ignite the universe within and then share your unique spiritual world with us!


Introduction of Mandala painting:
‘Mandala’ is a Sanskrit word, which represents ‘full roundness’, ‘aggregation’, ‘dkyil-vkhor’, etc. ‘Manda’ means essence, spirit and mind; ‘la’ means possession, ownership and achievement. Mndala is an image where sacred cosmo and psychological sphere gaze at each other, demonstrating the reality of universe from the perspective of Buddhism.


‘Mandala’ is the geometic depiction of all things on earth. It is endowed with religious cosmology, showing a spatial concept congenial to ‘Cosmic Spice’, on behalf of both a physical phenomenon and a spiritual prototylpe. Genrally speaking, everything is Mandala, even as tiny as a human cell.


Moreover, Mandala is an abstract delineation of human mental structure which can be traced back to similar patterns in the Paleolithic Age. It has been discovered in mythology, tribal legend and primitive art of various ancient civilizations.


Jung reckoned Mandala as the ultimate springhead of brain sturcture, counsciouness and unconsciousness, in addition, a supreme mark of harmony as well. Reed saw it as one of the remains entrenched deeply in human mind through the past hundreds of thousands of years. Mandala leaves people with an impression of fullness, intactness and integration, prompting insightful thoughts and infinite meditation.


Mandala is an integration/aggregation, but quite different from the one defined by other disciplines. It is an attractive and harmonious combination of shapes, welcomed by not only children but also adults.

As time flies, Zhen sheng has spent all his money one year later. So he was abandoned by Li Wa and her mother. After suffering several hard times, Zhen got a job in a funeral shop as an elegy singer. Later, his father who was also in Beijing found him. His father felt shocked but also angry because he thought so ashamed for his son. He scourged Zhen almost to die and abandoned him in wildness. Fortunately Zhen’s friend saved him. He then became a beggar and had to live on street. Even the woman who liked him before cannot recognize him since he has changed dramatically. What’s more, his friends didn’t do him a favor when he was in difficulty confused him. On the other hand, Li Wa changed her viewpoint to care him. However, a man holding a Zhu Xiao (a Chinese instrument) who is sophisticated is waiting for him in the distance and smiling.


About Physical theatre

It is considered that performance is the only one that can not be canceled during the drama. Actually, it is a performance of body. Body is more important than language. A professional performer trains for his body sensibility, self-insight, breath and rhythm, neutrality and as well as the divinity. Body is the media to feel and express the world. It is a work itself.
About the theater company Uncertainty Theatre Company was established in November 2014. The company is dedicated to the drama practice in folk, experimental and freedom. Most of its performances are original and were published in Xiahemicang. The main members are made by poet, visual artist, students and some theater professionals. Its drama idea is strongly influenced by Jerzy Grotowski’s “Poor Theater”, AntonninArtaud’s ”Theatre of Cruelty” and Schechner’s "environmental theatre" theories. “We try to experience all the possibilities in the drama. We try to discover the secret of the nature during the performance. We try to find more in ourselves as well as in others. During the drama, audiences may experience these truths they ignore in daily lives. We also like to take this opportunity to build the connection between individual and individual, individuals and the world which is vital to all of human beings.”

MoCA x World Music Shanghai Show: INFINITEART—— “An Event About Wind”

Artist: Vivi He / Jane Wang / Alvaro / Renaud / Lu Hai
Time: 2:30p.m.-3:30p.m.,Oct.12th(Sunday)
 
Location: 2F, MoCA Shanghai 
Organizer: World Music Shanghi, MoCA Shanghai
 
Introduction:
According to the website: www.typhoon.weather.com.cn , so far in this year ( till 12th October 2014), there were six typhoon in China. They are: 14th June, no.7 “海贝思”, 12th July no.9 “威马逊”, 18th July “麦德姆”, 30th July the twin typhoon “娜基莉” and “夏浪”, 12th September no. 15 “海鸥”, and the very recent one on 18th September “凤凰”.
People who live near the East Sea Area, including Zhejiang Provence, Shanghai, Fujian Provence, are not alien with typhoon. When typhoon performs her art, no one would miss noticing it. But when she is done in 2 days, soon enough, no one would remember her again.  However, people keep naming typhoon, and liken them with personalities, and stories. Again, they are forgotten like any passengers on the street.
The concept of this work came in a typhoon day. So there are many “windy” instruments employed in the piece, to attempt to memo this data. Is the typhoon 娜基莉,or 凤凰, or 威马逊 that gives birth to the work? No way to verify already.
 
About performer: 
INFINITEART team is composed of artists of varied creative media, with a focal point on experiments and collaboration.
Artists:He Yu (Body), Wang Zheng (Indian harmonium and Sanskrit chants), Alvaro (Indian Harmonium and body), Renaud (Australian didgeridoo, African drum, Chinese flute, and jaw’s harp), and Lu hai / Gu Zhujun (Chinese Guqin).
