Revolt

Henry Alles – Change and Place

Research October and November in Enschede
Presentation 9 November 2017 in Enschede

Research
In the run-up to the programme Revolte, Henry Alles (theater maker and student of the ArtEZ Master of Theatre Practices) explores our relationship with the space where we are. What is allowed or not allowed in here? Is this OK or is there another way? What do you think?
From his self-built cottage, Henry explores the ArtEZ space. In collaboration with students and incidental passers-by, he creates an opera-like performance, involving a cottage, an orchestra and an opinion. This way you join together to give a voice to the users of the space .
Political statement, 23 June 2017 (Henry Alles)
Change and Place, as my research is named is probably not only about learning to make the art we want, but also about where we are making it.
Our being here has a strong influence on landscape
There is not a different place somewhere else, where we have to strive to end up at to make what we want to make.
We are where we should be
This is where we produce new knowledge
And here it is where we can use the commons as a tool to create a new relationship with the public space.
If we would create what the market wants us to create, we will soon be old fashioned.
We need the fashion department to lead us
We need the dance department to lead us
We need the housekeepers to lead us
We need the cooks to lead us
This is how we want to learn
The non-governmental public sphere itself here is a common, which is very important because it is with this common that people can act out shared ownership and democracy.
Our current situation is a full with gaps that we understand but do not bridge
We should bridge them and discover gaps that are a common challenge
Those hidden gaps, those are the ones we want to Uncover.
Wanted: students who would like to take part in the research project Change and Place!
Around the ArtEZ studium generale programme Revolte, Henry Alles (theater maker and student of the ArtEZ Master of Theatre Practices) is carrying out a research project on the relationship that we have with the space where we are. What is allowed or not allowed in here? Is this OK or is there another way? What do you think?
This research project is being carried out in the place that you use every day, the ArtEZ building, and it will culminate in a performance on Thursday 9 November at ArtEZ Enschede.
We are looking for: (aspiring) image makers, drama teachers, musicians and vocalists.
On location at ArtEZ Enschede you will work on the research project together with the people you meet.
The outcome of this project -an opera-like performance , involving a cottage, an orchestra and an opinion- is to be presented on 9 November during the ArtEZ studium generale programme Revolte.
