Residency Henrique Furtado - “BIBI HA”
2017/06/01 › 2017/06/30
Furtado, Henrique

Our starting point for this performance was Inuit and other forms of throat singing. This led us to explore standing face-to-face, the proximity of our bodies, performativity in duration and hyperventilation, with reference to practices from sports (wrestling), performance (sports entertainment), and ritual (Jean Rouch’s documentary Les Maîtres Fous). Bibi Ha Bibi is becoming a choreographic and musical performance connected to various ritual forms, from wrestling to traditional Inuit singing; from fight songs to partner and mating dances.

He is currently collaborating with Aloun Marhal, Daniel Pizamiglio (Graus de Afirmação) and Chiara Taviani (Stand still you ever-moving spheres of heaven), creating performances where styles and genres overlap, and where costumes, objects, and vocal presence are particularly important.

Aloun Marchal is an improviser, dancer and choreographer. He receives the Danceweb grant in 2008 and 2012. In 2010, he is awarded the second prize at the “Danse Elargie” competition (Théatre de la Ville, Paris) for “Gerro, Minos and Him”, created in collaboration with Roger Sala Reyner and Simon Tanguy. In 2013, “Gerro, Minos and Him” wins best dance piece at the Stuttgarter Tanz-und Teaterpreis festival. He is currently touring two of his creations: “Gerro, Minos and Him” and “Trippel”. As a performer, Aloun is touring “More than naked,” a massively naked show choreographed by the Austrian artist Doris Uhlich and the most recent show of the integrated dance company SPINN. Aloun decided to start dancing when he understood that thinking wasn’t enough. He felt that it was kind of the same as taking the objects drawn on a map for the objects themselves. Since then he is fascinated by moments that don’t make sense right away, but eventually will.
