Caroline Daish (AU/BE): No Longer All Alone

De Australische Caroline Daish woont en werkt in Brussel. Ze behaalde haar diploma Arts Management aan de universiteit van Adelaide, werkte ze als regisseur en actrice met kunstenaars van over de hele wereld en was Associate Artistic Director van Restless Dance Theatre, een van de belangrijkste Australische dansgezelschappen voor mensen met en zonder beperking. Ondertussen strekt haar werkveld van theater over performance tot film. De laatste jaren ontwikkelde Caroline een specifieke interesse voor projecten rond stem of gehoor. Ze volgde de postmaster performance aan a.pass en won de Melbourne Underground Film Festival Award voor Best Actress 2014 voor The Dead Speak Back.

Ze werkte onlangs nog samen met o.a. Myriam Van Imschoot voor haar ‘radiovoorstelling’ What Nature Says (made @ Buda), fungeerde als ‘levend boek’ in Mette Edvardsens Time fell asleep in the afternoon sun en speelde in de laatste film van Sarah & Charles A day will come my future will be your past.

 

Bij BUDA komt ze werken  aan No Longer All Alone, een experimentele micro-opera in een omgeving vol stereofonische microfoons en draadloze koptelefoons.

 

De stereofonische opnames zorgen voor een 3D-geluid dat voor het publiek voelt als ondergedompeld worden in een real-time film. Ze werkt hiervoor samen met muzikant en componist Sigrid Keunen, met wie ze live compositie en veldopnames wil combineren.

 

 

ENGLISH

Caroline is an Australian performer living in Brussels. She has been intrigued by the way we listen and what happens to the sense of self when our listening is displaced. She has been using live performance captured by binaural microphones and listened through cordless headphones. This developed from her postmasters performance study at Apass. She also works with moving image, making a 30 min documentary with her brother about his psychotic experiences and his arts practice. In 2014 she won best actress for feature films in the Melbourne Underground Film Festival for her performance in “The Dead Speak Back” (Triptych Films).

She also collaborates with Belgium artists, such as Myriam Van Imschoot, performing in the radiophonic performance, “What Nature Says”, being a living book for Mette Edvardsen in “Time fell asleep in the afternoon sun” and  in the lastest film from the visual artist duo, Charles & Sarah in “A day will come my future will be your past”.

In BUDA she’ll work on No Longer All Alone, an experimental micro-opera in a surrounding of binaural microphones and cordless headphones.

The binaural set up allows them to construct parallel versions of reality, testing the relation between materiality (what is before us) and meaning. It is an invitation to inhabit worlds in which ‘escape’ is an existence. It is an experiential training in multiple reality viewing, a zoological visit of the present moment, in which the viewer plays both the animal and the keeper of the moment.

 

What happens to and where is the public space in this set up? It is an affective and immersive experience like being in a real-time film.

 

For this residency Carline invites musician and composer Sigrid Keunen to combine live composing and fieldrecording.
