2 Fourth Edition JULY 2018 PRISHTINA hapu.me Dear friends, This year too, we are setting departure points of our movements in public spaces of city of Prishtina. We are continuing our inexhaustible exploration in a search for points that provoke departure in our common movements with the city. With those movements we will experience in togetherness the exploration of the limits and changing the perspectives of our city. While moving we will meet, co-create, have a conversation and sympathize as we move together. The moving of the city will produce images in motion transformed in a movie, whose protagonists are inhabitants of this city and its many visitor in these times. HAPU this year opens on the first night with movements from "Liquid Loft" from Austria, masterly choreographed by Chris Haring, moving us to the court of Museum of Kosovo and from there many languages from across Europe, including the one recorded in Prishtina, will be echoed in our heads, associated with moving images created with finesse by Liquid Loft. Moving our body and hands, as instructed by Frank Bölter, we will fold together origami objects of real sizes that move with us. We will move them together to place them in points, from where our objects will ask with insistence the movements that have to be made for our common welfare. Another departure point of our moves we have placed in the premises of Faculty of Arts, from where you will start your artistic journey, created by Kunstlabor from Graz, Austria and domestic artists of Teatri ODA, moving in and out of "in between" zones, continuing this movements in the first days of August in La Strada Festival in Graz, Austria. On the move will be also the last night, with movements of actors in ups and downs of the newly created NOA Dance Theatre company in collaboration with Teatri ODA, under the care of the choreographic proficiency of Robert Nuha.
3 The moves of this edition of HAPU Festival are a product of numerous movements throughout the year, experiencing and enjoying European artists and moving the art and Kosovo artists at the European level in the frame of our partnership with IN SITU. This partnership has inspired us to create and to put these movements in the map of Prishtina and we are certain that in the same way will inspire you during the moves in our common space, and in this way we will be moving the city together. Florent Mehmeti, Artistic Director, HAPU - Festival of Art in Public Space

8 IN-SITU THE EUROPEAN PLATFORM FOR ARTISTIC CREATION IN PUBLIC SPACE A growing number of artists are looking to working out of the box, in direct contact with citizens and local communities. Decision makers and planning authorities are increasingly moving to support artistic events that revive relationships between art and society, blurring the lines between spectators and inhabitants, actors and participants, consumers and those who commission art. Together, the members of IN SITU, a group of programmers who are passionate about new forms of art and public space, reach close to one million spectators and have 15 years of shared experience. The platform, coordinated by Lieux Publics, European centre for creation, aims at increasing the European visibility of artistic creation in public space. The expertise and activities of IN SITU covers scouting and promotion of artists, organisation of project laboratories and incubators, co-productions and promotion of emerging creations, organisation of conferences and seminars, etc. To date, IN SITU has supported over 200 European artists.
9 It gathers 20 partners from 12 countries from many practical and aesthetic backgrounds which all contribute something vital to the network. Whether members come from a sprawling metropolis or a rural area, whether they are seeking to rehabilitate industrial wasteland or redesign landscapes, the goal is always to serve artists working with, in and for public space. Teatri ODA is the only member of IN SITU coming outside of the European Union determined to play a strong and fruitful role in this valuable European partnership. IN SITU ACT is funded with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. INSITUnetwork
10 Thursday, 19 July 2018 at 21:00h / Museum Of Kosovo Liquid Loft (AUSTRIA) FOREIGN TONGUES Choreographer: Chris Haring Foreign Tongues puts the act of speaking at the centre of a choreography in urban space and reflects its polyphony and multilingualism. With a flexible sound system the performers interweave the city s soundscape with the timbres of distant or neighboring language spaces. Interpreted through dance, voice recordings from different regions in Europe become readable like an open-air score. The sounds of the cities turn into a spoken word symphony. But what is the specific sound of a certain meaning? How does its embodiment look? The -languages sampled in Foreign Tongues are, even before they have meaning, fundamentally sound and rhythm, ambivalent islands of sound. Dialects, regional languages and slangs get transformed into sequences of movement, based on their dynamics, emphasis and acoustic atmosphere. The internationally acclaimed performance company Liquid Loft sets off for public space and uses the collision of languages and communicative contradictions as a means of creation. Foreign Tongues invites you to explore languages we don't understand in words, in a form of bodily communication, discovering how much is actually, already understood.
11 - Chris Haring "Foreign tongues" is a pilot project of IN SITU - The European Platform for Artistic Creation in Public Space, in the frame of the ACT project. This project is funded with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union

13 Life size origami artist, Frank Bölter is with us. Folding and unfolding objects that disturb or connect roamers of Mother Theresa in central Prishtina, he will be waiting for us to do it and then play together. This playful togetherness will create other levels of bonds. Visible and invisible boundaries will speak out through the paper. In each of the three days from 16:00-19:00 you are invited to join the actions of creating and at the end in togetherness we decide where and how to place it and what to do... "Bölter's projects are distinguished equally by their powerful poetic imagery and by the precision of their execution, often carried out under the difficult conditions of the public sphere. Moreover his projects are predicated on an impressive effort - to communicate, which leaves traditional definitions of object and practice behind and expands his installations into the realm of the performative." (Jörg van den Berg, Columbus Art Foundation) Monika Radulovic AlexanderBattrell Frank Bölter is supported by the IN SITU- The European Platform for Artistic Creation in Public Space, in the frame of the ACT project. This project is funded with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
14 Friday, 20 July 2018 from 18:00-21:00 / Faculty of Arts 5 Saturday, 21 July 2018 from 18:00-21:00 / Faculty of Arts 5 (Length of individual experience: around 60 minutes) Teatri ODA & Kunstlabor (KOSOVO, AUSTRIA) IN-BETWEEN Kunstlabor-Graz and Teatri ODA-Prishtina is offering an experience of the way it feels to be in between. Who is inside, who is outside and what happens in the in between? Where am I? Where do I have to go? Will I be led? May I stay or do I have to go? And who decides? Strange voices, signals, signs, peculiar sounds and surrounding atmosphere intermingle. In a powerful performance of this collective journey, involving few words, the artists offer an experience of what it means to live with and survive these questions. This artistic journey lays in pedestal of one of the most burning societal questions of our times. A co production with La Strada Graz. "In between" further development will be presented in La Strada Festival in Graz, 1-3 August
15 "In Between" is supported by the IN SITU - The European Platform for Artistic Creation in Public Space, in the frame of the ACT project. This project is funded with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Wolfgang Rappel
16 Saturday, 21 July 2018 at 21:00h / "Heroinat" memorial 7 NOA Dance Theatre Company & Teatri ODA (KOSOVO) UPS AND DOWNS - work in progress - Enes Sahiti UPS AND DOWNS places the body and object of ups and downs in the center of the choreography of actors body. Actors manipulate objects, creating efforts to manipulate getaways and solutions from situations we often face. With theatrical nuances of the movements of actors, this dance theatre lays artistic paths in which ups and downs are the ones we face in real life pathways. Installed in a public space, UPS AND DOWNS is an artistic work in progress that lays foundations of a new dance theatre company, so much needed in the cultural scene in Kosovo.

18 Thursday, 19 July 2018 at 13:00h / Teatri ODA 11 Katharina Meves & Chris Haring, Liquid Loft (AUSTRIA) Workshop/Masterclass This workshop will offer some insights into the working methods and the physical vocabulary of the performance company Liquid Loft. Participants can explore the intricate relationship between movement, voice and sound. The topic of communication inspires to focus on body language and the physical attributes of verbal messages, their ambivalences and contradictions.

This might open up new creative spaces for compositional choices and choreographic approaches. Open for choreographers, professional dancers, movement- or theater students.
