William Forsythe One flat thing, reproduced( Visual )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'One Flat Thing' is a play for 14 dancers and 20 tables on the music of Thom Willems. Unanimously acclaimed by the press, this work of a strong theatrical intensity oscillates between disorder and [symmetry]. This very powerful creation gives rise today to a new work 'One Flat Thing Reproduced'. Realised by Thierry de Mey - one of the most important directors of dance films - designed this film as a full work. The theatrical disposition was studied especially for the shooting, permitting three cameras to shoot the action from different points of view. He catches chore[o]graphic principles [developed] by Forsythe. The way he films, touched by the looks and the exchanges between the dancers, permits to have clear the complexity of creation. Thus, appear very evidently : the aesthetical beauty of shapes, the intensity of the movements and also the human side, thanks to the exchanges of looks. This new experience offers to the audience the possibility of receiving this creation in a completely different way, outside of a theatre."--Mk2.com

Philip Bussmann - Pixelmondo : [... ersch. anlässlich der Ausstellung "Pixelmondo" von Philip Bumann in der Ursula Blickle Stiftung 11. Nov. - 16. Dez. 2012]( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Der Künstler Philip Bumann (* 1969 in Hanau) zog Mitte der 90er Jahre nach New York und war dort acht Jahre lang Video- und Grafikdesigner der Wooster Group, eine für ihre interdisziplinären Produktionen bekannte Theaterkompanie. Seit seiner Rückkehr 2002 entstanden Bühnenvideos und Bühnenbilder für zahlreiche internationale Tanz-, Theater- und Opernproduktionen. Zudem realisiert er eigene Installations-, Performance- und Filmprojekte. Aus seinen Erfahrungen in der Theaterwelt entwickelte er einen intuitiven Arbeitsansatz, der sich auch in seinem bildnerischen Werk widerspiegelt. Seine atmosphärisch dichten Arbeiten umkreisen oft das Thema des menschlichen Körpers und oszillieren zwischen den beiden Polen Installation und Performance, wobei seine Theaterarbeiten meist den Ausgangspunkt einer weiteren Verdichtung des Materials bilden. Das von Philip Bumann gestaltete Künstlerbuch erscheint zur Ausstellung in der Ursula Blickle Stiftung. Im Zentrum der Einzelausstellung stehen raumgreifende Video- und Soundinstallationen sowie fotografische Arbeiten, die sich mit dem Verhältnis des menschlichen Körpers zu Raum und Zeit auseinandersetzen
