No Patent Pending is a nomadic performance series presenting radical interdisciplinary practices that engage with sound, image, space and the body. Imagining new tools to articulate everyday phenomena, extending the body, remapping sense perceptions, hacking and reinventing existing media and codes, creating time and space for events which find their preferred storage medium in the memory of participants.
The 33rd edition of iii’s nomadic series features an eclectic mix of performances which share an intuitive and primarily non-verbal approach to composing with objects, bodies and everyday materials. Searching for the uncommon in the common, physical gestures, material assemblages and algorithmic abstractions collaborate to restructure the time and space of perception. Copenhagen based Nina Essendrop will present her participatory work Human Experience, as part of a three day focus on Larp. Dianne Verdonk will perform with a new physical sequencer that she is developing for creating sonic textures. Jeroen Uyttendaele will present Avlas, a piece exploring colour and sound combinations through the physical manipulation of light. Natalie Fyfe will embody the discomfort of public speaking. Hong Kong exchange artist Fiona Lee and local resident Matthias König will also both present the outcome of their residency at iii.
iii is an artist-run-platform for research, production, presentation and distribution of radical interdisciplinary practices based in The Hague. iii promotes artistic research and creation centered around the development of self-made instruments and performative media which engage with the four dimensions of image, sound, space, and the body. Inventing new instruments and presentation formats, iii brings the laboratory to the stage and offers unique, playful experiences to all audiences.
