Our new production ELECTRODOMESTICS will be presented for the first time this saturday 25th March 2017 (20:30) at the opening of our new studio in Berlin, VERLIN.

With urgent issues to be dealt with in nowadays Europe a fictitious band for ‘domestic affairs’ Electrodomestics investigates the domestic in the context of the household and relates it to the larger context of the domestic affairs within the ephemeral performance of glam-rock and of pop simplicity and immediacy. Literally different process of producing meaning and of communicating with audiences shall culminate in producing ‘eating’ settings, where the cabaret-like soirees of dining audiences could consume both ideas and food simultaneously. “If they don’t like it, they can eat it!

For the premiere we will be joined by Nizar Ghanem, an International Development Consultant with specific expertise in governance and conflict resolution in the Middle East, and Hamischa Doering from Miniwiz, an international company dedicated to upcycling consumer trash and industrial waste into innovative solutions.

Electrodomestics comes out as an artistic work resulting from a collaborative research by choreographer and performance maker Constanza Macras and the Egyptian choreographer/ performance theorist Adham Hafez. A ephemeral performance that aims at returning to the individual, to the personal, through its series of songs and music performances delivered within accessible – and ridiculous – registers of expression and of experimentation.

A production by Constanza Macras | Dorkypark co-produced by KRoki – International Contemporary Dance Festival (Kraków, PL) and NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ (NPN)Coproduction Fund for Dance (DE) which is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media on the basis of a decision by the German Bundestag.

“THE GHOSTS” IN HELLERAU, DRESDEN (DE)

© Thomas Aurin

Constanza Macras – Dorky Park´s production THE GHOSTS will be performed on March 10th and 11th 2017 at Hellerau, the European Arts Center in Dresden.  In this piece Constanza Macras worked with Chinese acrobats and circus performers. It looks like these artists, who once won fame and fortune for their country with their bodily discipline, have been forgotten and “decommissioned” by Chinese society, even though many of them are still quite young. They recall the “hungry ghosts” – according to Chinese popular mythology, lost souls who have been forgotten by their descendants and lead a miserable existence in an intermediate world. “THE GHOSTS” allows them a temporary return to the land of living, making their art and their stories visible once again.
