NEVERSTOP: “Get Ritual” – Copenhagen, 2012
Neverstop is a performance-based project that fusions various phases and forms of media production and performance while interacting with communities for a public exchange of art expressions and creative work elements.
The project is divided in several stages of work:
– training and exchange
– -show preparation
– performance and media production
– documentation and feedback.
NEVERSTOP FINAL PRODUCT:
The final result is an ongoing series of performances, installations, and media production involving: records and online content (mp3s, pdfs, a blog, a Youtube channel and more), books, movies, short films, object books and catalogs to document the project.
NEVERSTOP PERFORMANCE BASICS:
Concept: Each series of the project is based around a musical performance by an everchanging ensemble, created by members of the Neverstop team, and the community of each place where the project is developed. There are no pauses from beginning to end, it is one long performance, previously coordinated on site to make the best use of each location and participants’ ideas.
Set up: The set up process involves collaborations between local artists, volunteers, art collectives, cultural and community centers, as well as the invited artists and performers, members and collaborators of NEVERSTOP.
Duration: The groups work out the entirety of the show over the course of two weeks. The final performance is filmed in one shot.
