Max Mueller Bhavan/Goethe Institut in collaboration with Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts will host Civic Mimic Bangalore by Richard Siegal at Attakkalari Studios at 6.45 pm on January 27.
Civic Mimic Bangalore is the final presentation by the Attakkalari Repertory Company, and is the culmination of a two-week choreography residency
by Richard Siegal.
Civic Mimic explores the gathering of people in urban and public spaces, the conditions of belonging and exclusion and ownership. Generated by Siegal’s choreographic inquiry, if or then Methodology, a game-based syntactical and notational system by which performers thematise the act of choice, Civic Mimic seeks to bring the public into a shared attitude
of the conditional.
This presentation is the culmination of a two-week residency with renowned choreographer
Richard Siegal is the founder and artistic director of The Bakery Paris-Berlin (2005) and is the artist in- Residence at Muffatwerk/Munich.
Recognised by a New York Dance and Performance Bessie Award, The German National Theater Faust Award, SACD Prize, a Beaumarchais, and The Mouson Award, Richard Siegal has generated international attention for a body of work that includes performances, new media projects, workshops and publications.
