Des arts visuels à la Philharmonie, des installations au Mudam et des performances au Grand Théâtre: trois grandes institutions culturelles luxembourgeoises poursuivent le novateur red bridge project, véritable bâtisseur de ponts, tant géographiques qu’artistiques, entre musique, danse, performance, film et arts visuels.

Après la première édition avec la chorégraphe belge Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, couronnée de succès, l’artiste sud-africain William Kentridge était au centre de la saison 20·21. En plus de 30 ans, Kentridge a su créer une oeuvre unique mêlant les genres artistiques les plus divers – dessin, film, sculpture, performance, théâtre et opéra. Tout au long d’une saison, le red bridge project a invité à découvrir cette oeuvre protéiforme dans un programme aux multiples facettes qui ira d’une exposition monographique à des performances par Kentridge lui-même, en passant par une nouvelle production d’opéra. La prochaine édition du red bridge project aura lieu en 23·24 avec l'artiste Lemi Ponifasio.

Description
Lemi Ponifasio et Tom Leick Burns

Lemi Ponifasio is a prolific international theatre director, choreographer and artist. He is known for his radical approach to theatre, activism, and collaboration with communities.

 

 

 

 

While firmly established within the international avant-garde, Ponifasio grounds his work within communities and diverse Maori and Oceanic cultures, exploring complex forms of knowledge such as oratory, navigation, architecture, dance, performance, music, ceremony, philosophies, and genealogies as a driving force in emphasising local-oriented arts, indigenous cultural recovery, language and knowledge, thought and narratives that have been silenced or excluded.

Ponifasio established MAU in 1995, as the philosophical foundation and direction of his work, the name of his work, and the people and communities he works with. MAU is the Samoan word that means the declaration to the truth of a matter as an effort to transform.

MAU focuses on arts and culture, avant-garde, and philosophy. MAU seeks to transform the theatre’s power source, challenge the authority of theatre, and re-examine and question our current concept of what is human. It organizes the creation of new art, workshops, symposia, and community meetings; activities to build new systems of knowledge and new cultures to confront the economic-political-cultural-scientific and the ecological crisis of our time.

Lemi’s collaborators are people from all walks of life, working and performing in factories, remote villages, opera houses, schools, marae, castles, galleries, and stadiums. His projects have included fully staged operas, theatre, dance, exhibitions, community forums and festivals in more than 50 countries.
