Lecture Performance by Michelle Teran (CA)
KINOKINO, Sandnes | Symposium | Sal 3 | Oct.27th | 16:30h | 45 min
Michelle Teran will present Folgen, a 45-minute lecture performance. Folgen draws on the existing narratives of video makers found on YouTube to build a multi-layered media landscape of Berlin. Teran’s subjective approach, which weaves together mapping, literature and live performance, combines fragments of images and sound from YouTube videos with her own narration, using the traces video makers have left in the public sphere of the internet to follow people throughout the city. Through this process, the city becomes a place to be inhabited and experienced through another’s narrative — stepping into somebody else’s shoes. The performance is a deliberate mixing between reality and fiction, an interweaving narrative about desire. The many protagonists involved in the making of the work create the stories told during the performance.
The German word ‘Folgen’ has several meanings. As a verb it means ‘to follow’, while as a noun it refers to episodes, consequences, implications or effects. The project draws on several meanings of the word. The act of following someone or something builds up a collection of stories, pieced together in different orders and variations. Concurrently, both the disclosure and the act of following personal information towards its geographical source has unanticipated effects and consequences.
