Following previous years’ success of “XMAS Market Music Festival”, this year we decided to give a different twist to our Xmas mood by inviting Swiss and Italian performers and live-act musicians.This special evening will feature performances by Jacopo Miliani, Marie-Caroline Hominal, Nils Amadeus Lange and Lumpex.
Marie-Caroline Hominal received her Dance education at Janet Held Studio in Montreux, the Schweizerische Balletberufschule in Zurich and at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London. During this last period she was a member of the National Youth Dance Company. Her practice includes video, songwriting, music, choreography, and performance. She has collaborated with François Chaignaud, with whom she created Duchesses (2009), Clive Jenkins, Cristian Vogel, and visual artists Kim Boninsegni, David Hominal and Delphine Coindet. She has developed miniature one-to-one performances such as Hôtel Oloffson (2013) and Le Triomphe de la Renommée (2013), as well as full length performances such as Ballet (2014), Patricia Poses by the Pop Machine (2011) and the live concert performance Silver (2013). As a dancer she has worked with the Tanztheater Basel, Irène Tassembedo, Blanca Li, Gisèle Vienne, Gilles Jobin, La Ribot, and Marco Berrettini. She was a guest performer for Human Writes by William Forsythe and B.O.B. by Dick Wong. Since 2008, she has been showing her work, in both theaters and galleries, among other cities, Basel, Belgrade, Berlin, Beirut, Bilbao, Bogotá, Bruxelles, Chicago, Dresde, Genève, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Santiago de Chile, Varsovie, Wroclaw, Zagreb, and Zürich.
Nils Amadeus Lange works as a performer, artist and choreographer in Zurich. After completing his drama studies at Hochschule der Künste Bern, he began withdrawing from theatre, shifting his focus to more abstract forms of expression, dance and performance history while studying the Scenic Arts Practice Master’s program that he completed at Hochschule der Künste Bern, too. Lange “uses his body as a weapon, with which he pierces through the audience’s heads, in order to sub-sequently dissect memories of conventions, role models and gender stereotypes from their brains.” Recent years have seen the emergence of not only his own work, but also various collaborations. Among other works, the online series and stage piece body and freedom was developed in collaboration with Florentina Holzinger, Vincent Riebeek, Annina Machaz and Manuel Scheiwiller, and premiered at Tanzhaus Zürich.
Rafal Skoczek is a polish multidisciplinary artist and under the name of Lumpex he has been DJing, exploring and decomposing various experimental music genres as Techno, Ambient, Hardcore, Noise, Jungle, Musique Concrete, and Black Metal, with releases on Forbidden Planet, Kashev Tapes, BRKN and a new E.P. coming out on the Zurich based Gentrified Underground Label.
Jacopo Miliani lives and works in Milan. Miliani is currently teaching ‘Role of Creativity and Design’ at Istituto Marangoni in Florence and ‘Practice and theory of performance’ at Accademia di Belle Arti di Verona. He participated in the program ‘Exhibition as Medium’ through the Vision Forum platform at Linköpings Universitet. He is one of the founding members of OuUnPO, a research group composed of artists, curators, and researchers who together look at the boundaries of performance by appropriating and stretching the language of workshops, seminars, and meetings. He has attended several workshops and residencies with artists from different generations, including Joan Jonas, the Otolith Group, Peter Friedl, and Cesare Pietroiusti. He has collaborated with different performers including Jacopo Jenna, Antonio Torres, DivaD, Benjamin Milan, Mathieu LaDurée, Eve Stainton, and Carima Neusser. His projects have featured professionals from various disciplines including the filmmaker Dario Argento, the fashion designers Boboutic, and the music producer Jean–Louis Hutha. He is the founder of an independent publishing project that focuses on homosexuality and language: Self Pleasure Publishing.
