La Juan Gallery in Madrid, a pioneering project dedicated exclusively to live art, is in charge of curating a program of performances by artists from all over Europe, which will take place during the four days of the festival indoors and also in public space. The program is designed for all audiences and some of them are also focused on children. Ithaca Experiments participates with the project The Typewriter, that mixes video in real time using video mapping techniques and tactile control through a hacked version of 1920s Remington portable typewriter. Kimatica Studio will present Relax & Release, an interactive audio-visual installation commissioned by Tate Liverpool that uses sound design, coded images and motion detection technology to track the movement of the spectators’ bodies and project them as digital reflections. Rising star AV artist Aszyk premieres Floral Intensities, a new audio-visual show consisting of a mix of unique worlds and geometric forms combined with intense rhythmic sounds to merge into a unique sensory experience. In addition Aszyk will give workshops on image and sound sequencing and synchronization.
On Saturday the 14th of October, the festival has prepared an open-air performance by Orchestra of the City. Under the name Love in the City, the concert will be animated by synesthetic projections by David Moraton. Following this year’s festival theme, Orchestra of the City – London’s leading non-professional ensemble – presents a programme of music-dramatic works about love, led by director Chris Hopkins. The performance is designed for most people to stand and move freely around the orchestra members.
Artists will be inviting visitors to take part in a variety of activities and seeking lively interaction with the public. Opening up new encounters, establishing a sense of community that goes beyond geographical limitations, Tribe17 becomes a playground for artists across genre where the multi-layered relationship between space and identity will be constantly tested.
