Maschile Roma comes from a project I have worked on for several years with Media and Theatre secundairy school kids, Dept Media & Theater/Haarlem College/Holland.It is derived from the kubofuturistic play/performance/opera " the victory over the Sun from the russian artists Malevich, kruchenykh and Matyushin. First performed 1913 St persburg. It is based on Alogical Zaum language and is about the fight agains conentionalism and dogma in which the sun symbolises this dogma. A fight worth fighting but impossible to win.... During four years I have worked with different kids on different interpretations of it, shooting footage. all the time
With this footage I feel free to edit any alogical image I want as the utmost interpretation of the play. I work togethet, of course, with young kids with whom i want to share this important message,Choreographer/dancer Rens Borkent, writer/director Jacques Brooijmans and Vincent Lobe.
For this piece, among other music, I have used fragments of 1999 composition of composer Jeremy Arden. He created music for a 1999 version of the play in London. It was never performed there. He granted me the use of it.
