It is with great pleasure that If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution invites you to the Dutch premiere of A Piece of Dada (2018) as part of FLAM - Forum for Live Art Amsterdam. A collective project, this film is made by Clementine Edwards, Lukas Hoffmann, Tirza Kater, Rabea Ridlhammer, Clara Saito, Giorgos Tsiongas, and Wilfred Tomescu, as part of If I Can’t Dance’s study group “Opera Corruption: On Tricks, Tricksters and Charms,” led by Pauline Curnier Jardin and Sara Giannini for the 2017–18 academic year of the Dutch Art Institute.
In a city torn apart by a mad scramble for celebrity, Lady Dada seemingly has it all. The enigmatic performance artist lures her audience by ingesting vast amounts of money in her spectacular shows promising fame and unbound pleasure. While the public is captivated by her special gift, she has no bigger fan than Madame Gram—a glamorous but unhinged opera tycoon who is hell-bent on convincing Dada to be the star of her ‘Popera’. But Dada has a dirty secret. She doesn’t just eat the dollar bills—she shits them too. Via the underground sewer system, her faeces are funding the avant-garde revolution, who will topple the Opera regime once and for all. Or so she thinks...
The film will be screened as part of a nightlong programme of performances, conversations, screenings and a party, commencing at 7pm and finishing late, at Arti et Amicitiae (Rokin 112, 1012 LB). Further details can be found on the FLAM - Forum for Live Art Amsterdam website here
