ECA Madrid: Events and Interventions

IS Ivor Stodolsky Public Seen by 414

Let's use this thread to announce events happening at or parallel to the ECA which are not in any other programme so far.

Hi @modiener, so it seems you edited the title of the whole thread and content :) Having a whole thread dedicated to this is good. The only thing is that it now says it was created by me, Ivor, although it is you talking ;) Maybe you could edit this a bit. Thanks for your contribution! Ivor

Actually, the easiest thing would be to start your own thread (at the same level as this one). Then, we could restore this ones original title and and link all possible Madrid ECA events here, including yours.

BTW, I have been trying to get people to use the hashtag #RomaLivesMatter. How about using it here?

Good morning Ivor, maybe I could find people to support a performative intervention like Detox Dance in the open courts of Matadero - wouldn't it be interesting?


Mo Diener Sun 8 Oct 2017 5:33PM

Dear Ivor, sorry about that. #RomaLivesMatter is great. thanks for your support.


Ivor Stodolsky Sun 8 Oct 2017 8:57PM

ok, i've now changed this back to what it was -- a place to announce ideas or events or interventions!


Ivor Stodolsky Sun 8 Oct 2017 8:59PM

@modiener has proposed we do the DETOX DANCE! I second the proposal :)


Nicole Leonard Tue 10 Oct 2017 8:26PM

Super into the idea, personally. From a logistics point of view though it's a bit late -
not sure we'd be able to do this in MediaLab with everything else that's going on. @malashierbas maybe you have some other ideas on where @modiener could organize this?


Mo Diener Wed 11 Oct 2017 8:30AM

@nicoleleonard thank you for your positive post. @malashier I know that I was coming in quite late - I am proposing a 30 minutes workshop - people are around - sound technology is modest - are there spaces around for #RomaLivesMatter ?


Nicole Leonard Wed 11 Oct 2017 8:33AM

Could we do it outside with a portable speaker during lunch? Or maybe in cantina/auditorio :P


Ana Méndez de Andés Wed 11 Oct 2017 8:36AM

Hi! The proposal is very interesting :) As you can imagine, dealing with public cultural institutions is not a very easy task, and activities must be planned some time in advance. However, if you specify the technical (just speakers?) and space needs (indoors, outdoors, how many people aprox.), I can see if it's possible to hold it in Medialab, or Intermediae. Also, and regarding when, as Nicole said, we could think to do it either during lunch or on Friday afternoon as one practical spotlight session :)

Hi dear @nicoleleonard and @malashierbas, I just want to answer your propositions:
The speaker and radio mic and space to move for people we need because Detox Dance is an experience for everybody at the spot. it is a participative performative intervention.
At home in Zurich we use usually one big speaker on rolls for events on the road. A sound system and a radio mic, at least a mic is needed for a bigger crowd (50 - 100 people). Even for less people I need my voice amplified (speaking and moving at the same time)
what do you think? would that be possible? If the auditorium has possibility to push the chairs to the side - or during lunch, but people should feel comfortable, food is needed after a long session in the morning, so this is maybe not the best solution. To organise a practical spotlight session would be an idea, but be aware that the workshop session would take 20-30 Min. If that would be feasible it could be thought through. Thank you so much for your interest and positive actions. It would be wonderful if a possibility would open up. I very much know that it is not easy to organise last minute inputs but it would make just so much sense here


Mo Diener Thu 26 Oct 2017 9:10AM

I could imagine a public Detox Dance Intervention in the court yard of Matadero y Nave as there are a infrastructural installations around (active loud speaker and Mike) - Friday late afternoon after spotlight sessions were I introduce the work we do with Roma Jam Session art Kollektiv - would you support that idea @gaelle11?


Gaelle Thu 26 Oct 2017 9:25AM

yes I'd be happy to join (and help prepare if needed) Gaelle

Happy to see interventions were possible and worked in many ways ;-)

Thanks Ivor for encouraging this!
