DAU World Premiere in Paris automatic translate
From January 24 to February 17, 2019, with the support of the local city hall, the world premiere of the DAU project will be held in Paris. Together with the three main partners - the Theater du Châtelet and the Theater de la Ville, as well as the National Center for Art and Culture Pompidou, the project authors will offer the public an unprecedented experience of immersion in the space of DAU. Viewers can come for several hours at any time of the day or come again and again on different days. The public will be invited to see 13 films and a series of TV shows assembled from 700 hours of 35 mm film footage filmed, as well as become a member of various scientific and spiritual practices, seminars, attend concerts, performances and installations.
Three sites where DAU shows will take place during the month will be connected in the air by laser beams: the symbolic Red Triangle is partly inspired by the aesthetics of the Russian avant-garde of the early 20th century.
The penetration into the world of DAU is offered to the viewer in two Parisian spaces, twin theaters on Place de la Châtelet, which are in the stage of large-scale reconstruction, among debris and scenic decorations, as if frozen between past and future. Both theaters will be open exclusively for DAU events, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Also in the Pompidou Center / during the museum’s opening hours / an immersive installation will be presented, reproducing the atmosphere of the DAU Institute, and the project heroes will again reside in it.
BRIEFLY ABOUT DAU PROJECT
DAU is a multidisciplinary art project that exists at the intersection of art and science, theology and technology, truth and myth. For the filming of film material in the Ukrainian city of Kharkov, the Institute was reconstructed. It became the largest film location in Europe and at the same time a living parallel reality, where for three years, from 2009 - 2011, observing the rules of historical reconstruction, scientists, artists, musicians, philosophers, religious figures, mystics lived and worked along with cooks, cleaners, nurses, hairdressers and hundreds of other real characters. The goal of the DAU Institute, as well as any other existing institutions that served as its model, was research: on quantum physics, string theory and loop quantum gravity; and experiments in less traditional areas, such as orgonal energy, thought transmission, and teleportation.
The original idea of the director Ilya Khrzhanovsky to create a film about Soviet physics in the process of implementation was transformed into a serious study of human nature and psyche, which continues to this day. Of course, all this was made possible with the support of the like-minded director - a major Russian philanthropist Sergei Adonyev and in collaboration with a powerful international creative team, including production director Jürgen Jürges, art director Denis Shibanov, art director Katya Ertel and hundreds more huge and diverse experience. After the filming ended and the Institute was destroyed, the DAU continued to exist in other contexts, attracting more and more participants. The main character on the screen was the famous conductor Theodore Currentzis. The experiment also involved contemporary artists Marina Abramovich, Carsten Heller, Boris Mikhailov and Philip Parreno; directors Peter Sellars, Romeo Castellucci, Anatoly Vasilyev; designer Ray Kawakubo; musicians Brian Eno and Robert del Naya from Massive Attack. The films were voiced by actresses Isabelle Adjani, Fanny Ardant, Isabelle Huppert, Charlotte Rampling, Iris Berben, Hanna Shigulla, Barbara Zukova, actors Gerard Depardieu, Willem Défoau, Lars Eidinger, etc.
Films created from the film material shot at the Institute will be presented for the first time in Paris and will continue to exist on the DAU Digital digital platform available online. The release of the feature film "Dow" will take place later. Dates will be announced additionally.
