Film: Santa Inocencia

IMG_2257_klein

In 2015 Meritxell Campos Olivé started working on her first feature film as a director which was finished in 2017. “Santa Inocencia” was shot in Alvito, nearby Rome. The art film, produced by Dieter Meier and Peter Rommel, investigates in the spirit of the absurd the neurosis and fears of the everyday life, it’s constant projections into the past or the future and the inability to experience the present. “Santa Inocencia” will be shown at several film festivals in 2018.

Paté di Vittima is a dance and poetry performance by Meritxell Campos Olivé, Larissa Gulitz, Caro Köther and Davide Minotti. A play of moves and words, in which the joke is on our memories and their maintenance. And the joke is played with the same weapons we handle everyday to fight back the memories: invective, resignation, impersonation, revenge, a slow flow of time (which makes things work out). In these fake pitched-battle scenarios Memory is the cruelest killer and we all are both victims and perpetrators.

Stage: Human Loops Dresden

The dance theatre project HUMAN LOOPS of Meritxell Campos Olivé was shown on July 12 and 13, 2014 at the Deutsches Hygiene Museum in Dresden. The performance took place within the context of the “Museum Sommernacht” and the “Tanzaustellung”.Within an one week workshop the participants of the project developed their own movements, vocal concepts and “Loops” (choreographic pictures dealing with behavioral patterns of humans and nature). These self-developed choreographies and artistic sequences were presented in front of 1500 spectators.

Stage: Animal Erectus

The piece which was premiered on the 7th June 2013 in the Deutsche Hygiene-Museum Dresden is the product of an unusual artistic collaboration: The Zeit-columnist, Harald Martenstein, will read texts about men and women, about the perils of everyday life in Germany and yearning for the south.  Alongside, the Berlin-based dancer and choreographer Mertixell Campos Olivé dances.

Animal Erectus is accompanied by live music from the saxist Lars Dietrich and drummer Uwe Breunig. On the evening, literature, dance and music will be hardly separable: every form of expression plainly commented or reflected by another. Harald Martenstein and Meritxell Campos Olivé present in this performance their life-affirming attitude and their quirky sense of humour.

Stage: Vertigo

Meritxell Campos Olivé and Daniel Trumbull

On Thursday, 25.10. at 9pm, Spanish choreographer and dancer Meritxell Campos Olivé Fluxbau, alongside the harpsichordist Daniel Trumbull, will perform their dance/ theatre performance VERTIGO in Fluxbau, Berlin. VERTIGO is like a lifetime in fast-forward: intense, emotional and touching. The 25 minute piece deals with the unexpected challenges, life changes and disasters. Nevertheless VERTIGO is not a permanent downer, but, like all works of Meritxell Campos Olivé, is colourful, dynamic, and despite all the emotional gravity profoundly life-affirming. These contrasts are also found in the music of the harpsichord Daniel Trumbull, who combines baroque with modern film music. The visual design is created by Georgina Espasa.

Stage: Human Loops Berlin

Tanztheater von Meritxell Campos Olivé & Company

HUMAN LOOPS is a co-operation between dancers and choir singers from Spain and Germany. HUMAN LOOPS overcomes the seperation between auditorium and stage, like in a living museum the spectators can move freely through the different scenes in the Berlin City Hall. HUMAN LOOPS deals with two formative mechanisms of the human being: dualism and cycle. The performative basis of the respective scenes is the LOOP – little plots and emotional conditions are being performed without beginning or end. Since all scenes are displayed as recurrent loops, there is no specific start of the piece: entrance is possible during the ongoing performance between 20.00 and 20.45 h.

August, 8th and 9th, 2012   20.00 – 21.00 h (last entrance: 20.45 h)
