Spectra | Salons are in-disciplinary art evenings across performance and visual art that explore the questions of spectatorship, imagination and spectacle and how they are intertwined, embodied and felt in the era of globalism and digitalisation. Hosted by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms in the TILT studio and the Salon of Marci Panis, Amsterdam, the Spectra | Salons feature a series of in-progress sharing sessions, experiments and conversations which follow our and our guests current artistic research processes and questions.
The Premonitions Bureau #1 (in-progress)
By Billy Mullaney
The very first issue! Weird tales and spooky stories ripped straight from the arcane files of the Premonitions Bureau itself! Intrigue! Betrayal! A pair of dream detectives flung beyond the reaches of time and space! Occult mystery and hair-raising suspense! Their first adventure! Will they save the day? At what cost??
(The Premonitions Bureau #1 is a narrative experiment towards a theatre/comic book hybrid)
The Premonitions Agency Dream Movement Capturing Session (research sharing)
Presented by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms in collaboration with the Premonitions Agency
Have you ever wondered about the untapped potential of your dreams?
Welcome to the very first test version of The Premonitions Agency Dream Movement Capturing Session. This experimental government agency initiative aims to collect citizens’ dreams and analyze them to predict and affeect real-life events and possible futuer scenarios. We are excited to collaborate with the Premonitions Agency as part of the research for our new performance Within Cells Interlinked. In this Salon, we are sharing the first research of our dream movement capturing method.
