Manifesto

I have to go: Shoes on, down the stairs, quick Coffee, turn straight ahead, soon I arrive at the patio. Its 11:59 AM and everyone is on their way to lunch at the “cafeteria at the park”. I look for some of my friends that wanted to meet, but before can even wonder where they are I found different ones. Let the day begin. I know the people, I know the place. People everywhere.

The sun leaves its zenith position as the patio empties and the afternoon is upon us. The egg-shaped sculpture “the bathing woman” in the center is slowly swallowed by the buildings shadows. The place is quiet and empty, a professor here, a student there, its lunchtime awakening at 11:59AM almost seems forgotten. The bathing woman blubbers quietly and life goes on but outside of the courtyards walls. It seems to exclude all noise and chaos when lunch time is over. It’s getting late and soon the night begins. What was that?

Its 11:59 PM and unexpectedly the place seems to wake up one more time. From mid-day to midnight. There are lights, something glows. People appear and light is now everywhere its 00:00 and the patio gleams like it has never before.

Concept

We are an experimental live stage of the Genius Loci Weimar Festival. The lab team spends the week before the festival with the invited artists. In teams, we will start with our AV-Creation on Monday, learn from each other and welcome everyone. If you like the idea of one week creative anarchy alongside other AV artists from all over the globe, we look forward to receiving your application! The Lab takes place from 06. - 12. August and we will put on the developed shows on our site from 10 – 12 August, at the festival weekend. For each team, we can provide travel costs of up to €200, basic accommodation, catering, space in which to work, facades, projectors, media servers, sound technology and brotherly/sisterly love. Basically, everything that’s needed for one week of unconditional fun.

Our venue, the "Office bridge" in the inner courtyard of the "Cafeteria at the Park" is not far from the other festival venues: University Library, Goethehaus, and Haus der Frau von Stein. It’s 12:00 AM and the students go for lunch in their cultural heritage cafeteria. You read correctly, the people of Weimar made their cafeteria cultural heritage in 2010. The GDR-building from the 1980s was once threatened to be demolished but now it will be renovated in 2019. But before that is going to happen, we will be present and make the courtyard glow. In between of the cafeteria, university and the students bike-workshop we find ourselves on the green space that is the cafeterias patio. Its where the freshmen meet their tutors on the first day of Uni, more specifically they meet at “the egg”. That’s the place, where we´ll come together as well. “The egg” actually is the sculpture “the bathing woman” by Prof. Hubert Schiefelbein, – shaped like an egg – the well sculpture is the centre of the courtyard and guards the masses passing by every day. We will wake up the place one more time in the dark, we´ll exchange mid-day for midnight.

Application

During the Lab you can create a show for this concept! Realizations with performance, incorporating more space beyond the facade are very welcome. There are variety of musicians, costumes and dancers in Weimar that we would be happy to set you in contact with.

It’s end of April, Weimar, 11:58 PM, I step onto the courtyard. No one seems to be there. I move forward, guided only by the moonlight lightening the yard. I look at the egg-shaped sculpture. Moving closer I get the urge to touch its marble surface. I reach out my hand and touch the sculpture as suddenly it begins to glow. The scene seems to spin around me and suddenly, its August and it all begins.

With a 30 second video clip we want to see how you handle given materials and make sure you are good to go for a live performance.

We provide you with a 3D model of Prof. Hubert Schiefelbeins sculpture “the bathing woman”. She has been bathing here for quite some time now. Take her out, maybe to the cafeteria? I personally believe that there is some kind of secret button on the egg…what would happen of someone dared to press it? But you know what, that’s probably all myths and legends…
