Spectra | Studio, Marci Panis, Marcusstraat 52 | 1D, Amsterdam

Let us gather in a Void – An empty space. A vacuum. An opening. A gap.
Let us gather in a Dream – A space we visit in our sleep.
Let us gather in the Night Sky – The great black vault over the earth.

Let us gather in Vodrenisky.

The Void, the Dream and the Night Sky Spectra | Salon is part of the series of evenings we are hosting this autumn and winter. We open up our studio to guests to explore the porous and fluid spaces we inhabit, produce, embody, imagine, adapt to, demolish, re-construct and share.

Works by: Andrea Božić, Carsten Becker, Julia Willms and Robert Pravda in collaboration with the weather and the night sky Dream mapping guest: Clara Garcia Fraile

Spectra – space as an organism is a long term artistic practice and research into attention and space and how their organisation affects our sense of embodiment, emergent realities and infrastructures by choreographer Andrea Božić and visual artist Julia Willms with Spectra | Studio as its base.

Ingredients of the evening:

Fireworks – especially for the occasion, we have prepared a special winter spectacle, a performance in collaboration with the Geminid meteor shower and the weather.

Through the Looking Glasses – an immersive audio-visual installation and an inverted cinema based on the Ganzfeld effect.

A Double  – a live dream mapping session with Clara Garcia Fraile. Mapping a nighttime dream into the architectural space as though it takes place here and now. Dream mapping sessions are part of the making process of our new project PoroCity, which will premiere in March 2018.
