Place: Medialab Prado · Plaza de las Letras, C/ Alameda, 15 Madrid
Multidisciplinary meeting coinciding with the workshop HelloWorld! Contemporary stage creation and new technologies, held by David Rodríguez.
Buscando aberraciones, Sonoescénica and Versión_Beta are three examples of the possibilities that come up when introducing a broader research that includes new means of expression such as light, sound and electronics.
This event focuses in ideas that use technology to research the limits of facts and stage space. These projects are also part of Medialab-Prado's ongoing activities and its strategies to get participants in this event to know and use the space at Plaza de la Letras.
A project by Mónica Bujalance, Óscar Sáinz, and Lucía Domínguez.
The project explores the plastic possibilities of water in different stages under shedding light. Materials, therefore, are light + water + an environment that can capture images.
Light (Latin. lux, lucis): 1.Physical agent that makes vision possible.
Water (Latin, aqua). 1. Substance whose molecules are composed by a combination of one volume of oxygen and two of hydrogen. Liquid, odorless, insipid and colorless. Most abundant component in Earth´s surface and, more or less pure, forms rain, fountains, rivers and seas; constituent of all living organisms; appears in natural compounds.
Environment (environ - Latin. mentum) 1.Ambiance by which one is surrounded.
With quite unsophisticated resources, we will try to visualize the surface´s most abundant component in the environment surrounding you.
We are searching for aberrations in this environment, but above all, we search to be in constant research, fascinated and surprised by the hypnotic power of water under light.
Multidisciplinary team formed by Mónica Bujalance (1978, Architect), Oscar Sáinz (1970, Stage Lighting Expert) and Lucía Domínguez (1978, Photographer).
The project Searching for aberrations was selected to be developed within the workshop Light, space, and perception at Medialab-Prado in the Fall 2008/2009
Technical development: Yago Torroja, Jorge Cano, Enrique Esteban. Story and Stage Development: Arantxa Iglesias, Manel Barriere. Collaboration: Juan Fabián.Sonoescénica is an installation that aims to research sensory and cognitive limits through a “cut-out reality” system where the visitor or user explores a sound space in which a dramatic action takes place. A control system and wireless headphones allow the user to perceive a specific sound depending on a particular position and orientation.
A stage proposal by David Rodríguez (Madrid) / Performance Opening May 27, 2009 at Teatro Pradillo, Madrid
A stage proposal based in optical illusion and real time video. Based in Object Theatre, the project aims to ponder on our look in scenes. It is an idea about the ability to interfere in what we see and, from there, to tell a story. At the same time, this story, which has been randomly selected, can be adapted without any emotional connection.
This piece has been developed during the workshop Light, Space, and Perception at Medialab-Prado.
Idea and interpretation: David Rodríguez. Participants: Guillermo Gago and Esther del Pino. Text: Wikipedia. With the support of Teatro Pradillo and Medialab Prado. Contemporary Theatre influences: Robert Lepage, Sonia Gómez, Sergi Faustino, M. Depauwn & B. Van Hoestengberghe and Big Art Group.
