Mercat de les Flors - Sala MACSaturday 20 from 15 p.m. to 20 p.m.Access to the TV Set: 15 p.m. and 17.30 p.m.Ticket 12€

The MAC stage at Mercat de les Flors becomes a "plató" and performing stage for artists and audiences to build together an artistic apparatus as they produce a peculiar television show. An experimental space, a research on the television language in relation to performing arts, a long family gathering or wild long take on the hybridization of formats and disciplines in and out of sight.

Cultural activity is the tip of an iceberg, the visible part of an incalculable accumulation of opinions and comments multiplied by the social media. Sudden outbursts and fleeting info stimuli that do not always help us grasp the essence of the matter. With the social media the petty critics have proliferated, but so have the know-alls who turn the algorithmic recommendations of some content platforms into their discursive resource. Is it possible to discuss the programming without reproducing these models? Using critical analysis, as if it were a question of the fragments of a discourse, both loving and surgical in its precision? Here, it is a matter of submitting the programming of the day to the scrutiny of Ingrid Guardiola who, as she says herself, does what she can, neither more nor less.

SOROLLAR

Isabel Do Diego“DEPUEBLO”
The noise of the programme, live sound performances with different guest musicians.

From Andalusia, Isabel Do Diego deploys austere, brutalist folklore in a musical debut DEPUEBLO, generated by the dialogue between a ritual body and a prosthetic body. A sound habitat where living beings coexist timelessly alongside machines.

SOAP OPERA(CHAP. 3)

Guillem Mont de Palol,Márcia Lança and Daniel Pizamiglio

A three-episode television series, created in the absolute present during three consecutive days for the Sâlmon21 TV Set. The participating artists will write, direct and perform from the starting point to the final product, without any prior agreement or script. The space will be transformed into a photographic film where all the gestures and actions of the three performers will be recorded and edited in the retina of the television viewers.

L’activitat cultural és la punta de iceberg d’una incalculable massa d’opinions i comentaris que les xarxes socials han multiplicat. Rampells i infoestímuls fugaços que no sempre ens ajuden a copçar el quid de la qüestió. Amb la internet social els criticons han proliferat, però també els setciències que fan de les recomanacions algorítmiques d’algunes plataformes de continguts la seva cantera discursiva. És posible comentar la programació sense reproduir aquests models? Des de l’anàlisi crítica, com si es tractés de fragments d’un discurs, a la vegada, quirúrgic i amorós? Aquí es tracta de posar programació del dia sota el focus d’Ingrid Guardiola que, segons ella, fa el que pot, ni més ni tampoc menys.

TEATRON

Marta Echaves, HJ Darger(El Bloque TV)

Reflections and critical approaches to the phenomena of the performing arts.

Are you sick to death of looking through the listings and finding mostly musicals, stand-up comedians, versions of Shakespeare in leather jackets, contemporary dance from the time of the Barcelona Olympics, and zombie culture in general?

VISIONS

Olga Mesa“La mesa propia. Danza de manos”.
Projection of video works that meander between disciplines.

"Una Mesa Propia" (dance of hands) is a cinematic notebook in movement. The driving force of this story emerged from a conspirational dialogue with my mother, the Asturian poet Marián Suárez, the result of a remote reading protocol initiated at the beginning of lockdown in March 2020. Through this twofold reading out loud, a ritual emerged that we call the “dance of hands”.

VERSIONS

Vicente Arlandis / Taller Placer“El esfuerzo constante de ganarse la vida”
Presentacions performatives adaptades especialment al Plató.

"El esfuerzo constante de ganarse la vida" is a performance where I try to work as little as possible, just enough and what I consider reasonable. I will tell you what I think of the profession, the dancer’s work and the abduction of our time. I’ll tell you what it feels like when you repeat the same action in a factory for eight hours a day or how your body ends up when you dance in the same show for five years.

"Una Mesa Propia (danza de manos)" és un quadern de notes fílmiques en moviment. El motor d'aquesta història sorgeix d'un diàleg còmplice amb la meva mare, la poeta asturiana Marián Suárez, a través d'un protocol de lectura a distància iniciat al començament de la nostra quarantena, el març de 2020. D'aquesta doble lectura en veu alta, va sorgir un ritual que anomenem "dansa de mans".

ART TAPE

Norberto Llopis“All things” (an exerpt)

Norberto Llopis brings his work into play as material for a production in a TV studio. An invitation to distort and displace his own work by using it within the framework of a live TV show. To do so, he has chosen some excerpts from a 2014 piece, All things; Archaeology of a space object, which he will have to repeat, rehearse, version, and translate into the language of the studio. Through the live production of the images and sound, with the resources that this context is able to place at the service of movement on video, it is intended, incidentally, to pay a kind of tribute to the video dance of the 90s.

TIME OF GOING TO BED

Roger Pelàez

The time of going to bed is the time when we discard everything we are meant to be, everything that is random, false and parasitic in ourselves, and we are left alone with our own insignificance. The time when we are most fragile. “I will come with my cries, my stutter, my monotonous syllables ... You will be ill in a new hospital, you will lie dying on a stone bed and you will be victims. I will be the worm and you will be the wood.”

VERSIONS

Quim Pujol“Negre Croma”
Performative presentations specially adapted to the TV Set.

Colours are a cultural construction that consists of identifying and naming a certain wavelength of the light spectrum. Based on expressions related to colour, this live action highlights the intersections between matter and culture. The same as with the chroma screen, Negre Croma is a surface on which anything can be projected.

ZEPPELIN BEND by Katerina Andreou

“In my ongoing research on free will on stage and its subjective nature, I explore different body practices and try to approach new skills as if there were new technologies.I keep learning in order to keep unlearning. This saturation of rigor and discipline comes along with a desire of tackling matters such as control and power structures. It helps me sort out knowledge and constitute my own personal culture. Which training for which performance? Which effort for which goal?”

Zeppelin Bend, taking the name of an end-to-end joining knot that was used to moor airships, is a duo. Natali Mandila and me are putting together dances, actions and sounds that demand hardcore discipline and psychedelic imagination. In a world where staying ‘’grounded’’ or getting’’ high’’ seem to be often considered as survival methods, we try out both. While seeking moments of freedom, we try to maintain realness by focusing on our bodies in the act of doing.
