The work “Brick Moon” is a performance art and experimental sound event, part of the recently started, 3rd edition of the MPA (Month of performance art Berlin) which took place at Mind Pirates – Schlesische Strasse 38.
The collaboration between Eru (Alexander Rues) and Seven of Eglise (Dagmar I. Glausnitzer – Smith) gave rise to an experimental, improvised sound work and performance art action. In conjunction with the sound atmosphere, a third artist, Nathalie Mba Bikoro, featured body mappings and tattoo making of a lost star constellation as a way to channel the movements of people and history. The result has been a simultaneous transmission among, Eru’s sound waves and Seven of Eglise and Nathalie performing live actions, which has created a potential involvement with the participants.
Eru (Alexander Rues), is a experimental musician based on the cosmic and molecular tones of astronomical octaves.
Sideral moon is the time span for one complete revolution of the moon around the earth.
Seven of Eglise (Dagmar I. Glausnitzer – Smith), performs actions through her body, to channel energies. She investigates an empty mind space and experiences the body and its movements as extensions of the mind into the world.
Nathalie Mba Bikoro, develops actions in relation to literature of Elverett Hale’s Brick Moon and the lost constellation of the Argos Navis. She investigates the idea of home and the return and cycling turns of the Moon as a satellite for people to find their way home.
