LIGNA: Everyday life radio
Workshop presenters: Ole Frahm and Torsten Michaelsen
number of participants: 10
workshop language: English
The workshop experiments with forms of radio usage, that exploit the possibilities of the medium – its ubiquity, simultaneity and invisibility: participants will create radio broadcasts, that infiltrate everyday life spaces – like restaurants, shops, cars – in order to question their normality and the power structures, that sustain it. The radio broadcasts will be site-specific, they can either address the public in the spaces directly – the drivers in the car, the buyers in the shop. Or it will only talk to a conspiracy of radio listeners, which follows the radio and a ratio of its own.
The group LIGNA experiments already for some time with the effects a mediated – in most of the cases radio listening – collective can have on every day life spaces, which are either technically surveilled or regulated be the mutual control its visitors exert on each other. All these works have in common, that they regard their audience as a collective of producers.
LIGNA is a collective of three artists and media theoreticians, who produce radio based performing arts pieces. The common trait in their work is that they regard their audience as a collective of producers.
Igor Ružić: “Medijska slika kazališta”
Workshop presenter: Igor Ružić
number of participants: 8
workshop language: Croatian
Mogu aplicirati svi iz gore navedenih zemalja koji se dobro služe hrvatskim jezikom u govoru i pismu
Radionica u sklopu Zoom festivala u Rijeci 2012. fokusira se na medijskoj prezentaciji i percepciji izvedbenih umjetnosti. S obzirom da festival nije samo ‘mjesto’ prezentacije umjetnosti nego i njezine ‘provodivosti’ i prevodivosti, upravo na ta dva aspekta koncentrirat će se polaznici radionice. Oni u njoj postaju ‘gledatelji sa zadatkom’, pri čemu je taj zadatak širi, a možda i važniji od misije onih kojima se ta sintagma obično prišiva – kazališnih kritičara.
Radionica ostavlja samim polaznicima mogućnost izbora: multimedijska prezentacija, rad na tekstu, izvještaju ili ‘klasičnijoj’ kritici, te ‘međuformatima’ poput intervjua, okruglog stola, radijske ili televizijske/video kritike, eseja, crtice… Tijekom radionice naglasak će biti, uz ipak zadržanu dozu fundiranosti ili dubine argumentacije, na poentiranju i osobnom stavu, kako bi polaznici otkrili i svoje načine ‘čitanja’ kazališta te posljedičnog ‘pisanja’ ili govorenja o njemu.

About the ZOOM Festival
The 2012 edition of the ZOOM Festival for contemporary experimental performing arts in Rijeka, Croatia, offers a workshop programme to young professionals from the Western Balkans, Austria, Switzerland and Germany.
The festival, founded by Drugo More and held annually since 2010, was born out of a need for new forms of expression in the performing arts in the Adriatic region. In 2012 and 2013, we put the focus on the German speaking performing arts scene, which we regard the most vibrant and influential these days.
The programme includes four workshops that will address topics in the field of the performing arts. The workshop presenters are the art collective LIGNA – Ole Frahm and Torsten Michaelsen (DE), Janez Janša (SLO), Ivan Marušić-Klif (HR) and Igor Ružić (HR).
