EXPERIMENTAL PERFORMANCE "LENIN AND CHRIST"
Date: 17.09.2017
Participants:
Sergey Lysenko, Rima Imankulova, Irina Gaisarova, Marat R, Karim Sadygaliev, Markos Cisneros, Rustam Abykeev
In the film Interstellar, a scientist sends a group of cosmonauts to discover new territories suitable for human life. But, as it turns out, the scientist sends astronauts to death, for the sake of the birth of a great life. This line was used in the play "Lenin and Christ". Let us recall the horror that cosmonauts experience when they learn that in the scientist's project their life was sacrificed - total loneliness at the edge of the Universe and no help from Earth. Isn't that what the actor experiences on stage? Interstellar became the inspiration for the performance.

The play "Lenin and Christ" is about an actor, about a fiery game that flares up and burns the actor in the figurative and literal sense of the word, about the theater and about time, about time in general, about how it is experienced, stops and begins its course again, but also our specific time.

The play is shown with the support of: ARTBAT FEST, Kazakh National Academy of Arts named after Zhurgenov, DOEN Foundation, ArtsCollaboratory, Soros-Kyrgyzstan Foundation.

Suddenly he sees himself and his life in their true light. This is a moment of awakening of the soul, which requires a lot of courage from every person.

LECTURE BY MARIA VALYAEVA
Date: 22.09.2016
Topic:
"Genetics science art — hybridization of science and art" within the framework of the "Symbiosis" project
Location:
Botanical Garden
"Science art, or the art of research, is an interdisciplinary field that is being formed right now, in tune with the achievements of scientific and technological progress. Both components - science and art - are equivalent. An artist is not an interpreter of a scientist's work, but his companion and co-researcher."

Maria Valyaeva is a scientist, specialist in human genetics, an employee of the Research Institute of Problems of Biology and Biotechnology.

SPECIAL PROJECT "TO HORIZONS"
Date: 18.09.2016
Location:
Tram depot
Project:
Installation, augmented reality
A study of the nomad's travel and its expression of ID-ethics in modern life conditions.

Fashion - the installation invites viewers to embark on a journey through the prism of the past into the future using augmented reality.

The current topic of discussion in today's society is Life on Mars.

The designer asks how would the nomad go on this journey? What wisdom of traditions can a modern nomad adopt and reflect in his ID-ethics: Mentality? Love for Earth and respect for Heaven? Perception of all colors and textures of various landscapes? Ability to adapt to new realities? How then might this transformation in clothes look like?

This concept conveys the vision of transforming the design of an important attribute of the nomadic wardrobe - Shapan.

Aigerim Akenova is the founder of TEXSPIRE. Fashion expert, designer and researcher.

Hive Studio of Innovations develops applications using Augmented Reality technology.
