ACCIÒN GORILA #1
5 of June 2014, kl. 18-20. Charlottenborg Kunsthall.
Presents: Lecture by Florian Schneider & Performance Another 12 by Sara Gebran (ACCIÒN GORILA Program)
Premier 5 of June 2014. Charlottenborg Kunsthall, under ACCIÒN GORILA #1
Another 12 is an investigation on translation, emancipation and composition. Translation comes after the original, thought it develops from it, undergoing a transformation and a renewal, towards an after life. All translations mark their stage of continues life, so the translation of the audience continues as surrender from the original, an “afterlife continuum” without the mediation of given meaning. While the work explores the possibility of the emancipatory relations between the parts to the whole, as well as in the passages from medias, in order to liberate the parts, from the relations that bounds the original to the translation, the maker and the viewer, the parts and the whole, opening up for new spaces in between them, as collective spaces for new relations and new meanings to emerge. 32 artists from different disciplines and countries translated images from another project, chosen by her, into a movement phrase, resulting in their translation of 32 dance phrases of maximum 2 minutes each. Developed in Collaboration with Rebecka Stillman.
23 of May 2013. Kungliga Konsthskolan (Swedish Royal Institute of Art, Mejan), at MDT. 20 Plus is the second solo of a series of three solo performances related to one another by a similar starting point – with different compositional arrangements, based on translating images into movements. For this short experiemnt, the translators were the visual art, and architect participants from Mejan.

Concept and performance: Sara Gebran
HOW TO GET THE WATER INTO THE TIRE?
The performance focus on the displaying of multiple meanings, put against a none dramatized aesthetics. The subject of control is addressed as an inescapable problematic, working with dislocated artistic tools in other cultures and communities. The totalitarian regime of perception crucially increases during the show, until control is released from the performer to the receiver in the final dance sequences, leaving the audience perceive without mediation. Sara dances 20 movement phrases given to her by 20 artists from different countries, as their interpretation of 5 photographs they received from her. This images are also from another project and reality. A 20 Light designers from Stockholm translated those phrases into a light for each phrase. The work is a passage from medias, from the reality, to the images, to the movements, to the light.
