Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time (TRAILER) / William Forsythe / Part 2 can be seen at Brighton Festival 2014

William Forsythe produced ‘Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time’ in 2005. The work is based on swinging hanging pendulums and the choreography of people as they progress through the forest of movement, all the time avoiding the pendulums.

The new version of this show ‘Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time No.2’ is meant to be a new development in the performance and can be seen at Brighton Festival 2014.

Brighton Festival / 3 May – 25 May 2014

‘Brighton Festival has been at the forefront… an arts festival that makes connections with the real world’ The Times

Brighton Festival is an annual celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events – taking place in venues both familiar and unusual across Brighton & Hove for three weeks every May.

Now in its 49th year, Brighton Festival is an innovative commissioning and producing festival, which continues to win critical acclaim for its ambitious and daring programme. As England’s biggest curated mixed arts festival, Brighton Festival attracts some of the innovative artists and companies (and some of the most adventurous audiences) from the UK and around the world.

In 2014, we welcome the critically-acclaimed choreographer Hofesh Shechter as our sixth Guest Director. Previous Guest Directors have included poet, writer, broadcaster and former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen; actress and human rights campaigner Vanessa Redgrave; Burmese democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi; renowned visual artist Anish Kapoor; and celebrated musician Brian Eno.

JAY FUNK | L.A. | SAMSUNG FINGER DANCE

Jay Funk, based in L.A., recently did this advert for Samsung in which he only dances using the top half of his body, and even then it’s primarily using just his hands. At first it just seems that perhaps he just had to much time on his hands, pardon the pun, but the speed and intensity soon picks up, and to top it off the clever use of CG in the clip also really helps bring it to life. It’s a great way of looking at alternative forms of movement.

Unnamed Soundsculpture | Daniel Franke & Cedric Kiefer

This motion creation followers the real movements recorded from a person. The well animated and created figure is a brilliant example of basic human form. As the music plays the figure moves and dances, one minute it can look like a collapsing building, the next it has the unmistakeable form of a person holding a strong figure. Definitely worth a watch as it shows a really interesting example of simple movement.

LEO | The Anti-Gravity Show

LEO from Toby Wegner is a solo theatre piece that has been performed around the world and premiered at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2011. The act is a playful but brilliantly performed take on the idea of this mans world being disconnected from the laws of physics.

Film and Creative Inspiration, Frank Sauer

A short clip for inspiration, the film Director Frank Sauer has done some great clips and for creatives they are a great watch. They include clips for Redbull and Abarth, as well as his own Short Films. The angles, closeups and other methods he use are incredible, a lot of his clips feature well filmed interviews and pauses. He uses a lt of motion in his clips, like dance, free running and sports. I find clips like this are a great source of inspiration if you’re having some down time, or need to take a break from what ever you’re working on.
