The anatomy of a great venue
BY JOHN MAHON
@ VOL 10
ON DEC 02, 2015
The Locals was set up at the start of 2015. We want to uncover the people, places and things that make us proud of our city and tell their story.
The Locals produce our own shows and collaborate with people on events around the city like markets, festivals, screenings, parties, pop ups, banquets, venues….these are the sort of things.
They do them under different names like Toejam, Telephones and The Eat Up. The Locals is the umbrella name for it all.
They’re from Dublin and proud of it. They know this city is world class and want to see it at the table with the like of Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Berlin. They're doing to do their bit to help.

ON MAR 26, 2016
In 2014, Tsai Po-cheng won the Audience Favorite Award in The International Competition for Choreographers in Hanover and the Choreography Competition in Masdanza with his masterful work Floating Flowers. In 2015, he was crowned champion in The Choreography Competition in Burgos and The Choreography Competition in Copenhagen, and finished second in The International Choreography Competition in Jerusalem. In sharing his journey and the hurdles he faced in teaching dance in Taiwan, Tsai encourages young people to follow their hearts so that people who share the same vision as them will offer support and follow in their steps. Tsai also reminds young people to stay true to themselves and to speak in the voice of their own generation.
Po-Cheng Tsai’s international breakthrough came with Floating Flowers. In 2013, the production won the National Creative Dance Competition in Taiwan. In 2014, Floating Flowers won both Audience Award and the First Production Prize at the International Competition for Choreographers in Hannover ,giving Po-Cheng Tsai the opportunity to tour Floating Flowers with dancers from Gauthier Dance. This piece was invited to perform at 2014 China Dance Forward in Hong Kong and Guangdong, and later to LUCKY TRIMMER in Berlin in 2015. This year, Po-Cheng’s new work, Hugin/Munin came in first and won Tanz Luzerner Theater Production Award at Copenhagen International Choreography Competition in Denmark; also ranked No.1 and won Italy Balletto Di Siena Production Award at International Contest of Choreography Burgos in Spain. Po-Cheng Tsai founded his own company B.DANCE in Taiwan. He also worked as guest choreographer with different professional companies, including Cloud Gate 2 and Kaohsiung City Ballet.

Randomly in Copenhagen
While looking for PechaKucha-related photos on Flickr, we found the one you see here by Flickr user bia_the_biatch, which based on the date it was taken we're assuming was taken at this month's PechaKucha Night in Copenhagen Vol. 12. What a great looking venue!
A Guide to Landscapes, Improving a Train Station, and Rampant Inspiration in Gothenburg
Presentations João Nunes is an architect, and in this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10) he talks about the challenges involved in working with landscapes. This usually means having to balance elements such as time, conditions, and the type of terrain, along with very different materials. In "A Rough Guide to Wakefield Kirkgate" (from PKN Barnsley Vol. 4), Sharon Shepherds shares a few ideas on what could be done to make the historic Wakefield Kirkgate station look better. Posters We've got two new additions to our Tumblr blog, including the poster for PKN Manizales Vol. 3 you see pictured above, as well as the two sides of the PKN San Antonio Vol. 6 flyer. Photos We have quite a few photo galleries to share with you today, some from PKNs that happened a while ago (so not necessary from a city's latest volume). Pictured above, PKN Hanoi Vol. 1.PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 9 [Flickr]PKN Marseille Vol. 17 [Facebook]PKN Catania Vol. 6 [Flickr]PKN Albury-Wodonga Vol. 1 [Flickr]PKN Hanoi Vol. 1 [Flickr] We shared a report by PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson recently (about the city's recent Vol. 31), and here's a follow-up on the topic of instant inspiration:Sometimes inspiration travels fast. The day after PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31, presenter and sushi chef José Seruda went out in the city to find edible ingredients inspired by Klara Hansson who presented about "The edible city" the same night, and during the beer break served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants. José's own hunt resulted in a brand new starter dish using Daisy, Garlic-mustard flower and Dandelion Leaf served as part of the omakase offering the same night at his restaurant Hoze. I'm guessing it's this kind of passion for experimentation with ingredients and flavors that might be the reason many consider Hoze one of Sweden's best sushi restaurants. Below is a video of Klara going hunting for wild plants in Gothenburg city on a previous occasion and within 30 minutes serving up a fresh mushroom salad. How has a PechaKucha presentation inspired you? Calendar As we covered yesterday, tonight's (Wednesday, May 23) calendar includes PKN Prague Vol. 29, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3, PKN Leksand Vol. 4, and PKN Copenhagen Vol. 20. Tomorrow is a big Thursday (May 24), with the following events on tap: PKN Istanbul Vol. 14, PKN Seattle Vol. 35, PKN Helsinki Vol. 21, PKN London Vol. 6, PKN Kosice Vol. 18, and PKN Yerevan Vol. 16.
Copenhagen Vol. 23 Recap
Though the PKN Copenhagen organizer Maja Lund has been away from helm and helping us here at PechaKucha HQ in Tokyo; the show must go on! And on it has gone -- the latest event (Vol. 23) in the Danish capital went off with a bang last week, with presenters like Jakob Lange, who talked on "Window Farms" i.e. gardens you can grow in your window box, Jan Kofod Winther discussed his airphotography, and Kjartan Arngrim told stories about his band "Folkeklubben" (Folk Club) -- they also performed as an intro to the event. Naturally, there are slew of photos from PKN Copenhagen Vol. 23 up on their event page. Not only that, but a local news station was on hand to interview presenters and attendees (in Danish, of course), the YouTube link for those interviews can be found here. Last but not least -- and again, in Danish -- the Danish National Radio (DR) discussed PechaKucha recently as well in an interview titled "Japan Concept Tightens Lectures Up", found here.
With our PKN Vol. 102 just a week away, it's time to start highlighting our lineup! First up is Maja Lund, PKN Copenhagen organizer who has been in Tokyo for a couple of months working with our team here at PechaKucha HQ.来週のPechaKucha Night 東京102のプレゼンターの方を紹介していきます。初めはPechaKucha Night コペンハーゲンのオーガナイザーMaja Lundさんです。東京滞在中にプレゼンテーションをしてくださいます。

Art & Technology - PechaKucha Night Aalborg #18
It's been a while since our last blog post - but that doesn't mean there hasn't been a lot of PechaKucha in Aalborg - just been busy making things happen - and we still are! :-) Last years international PechaKucha at IMAGES Festival in Karolinelunden had an audience of 150 in the tent and held the amazing synergy, when PechaKucha Nights are the best and it was followed by a small PechaKucha at a local Sustainability Festival on the international PechaKucha Night only 14 days after. We connected to Tokyo in the midst of technical cacaphonia of voices from everywhere and we managed to say a short hello Tokyo and we had a cosey event at KUL Nordkraft. In october we returned to our base at HUSET and went Twin Peaks themish in "The owls are not what they seem..." and had great presenters finishing the night off poetically with Frederik Bøgh Andersens . In february 2014 we finished a great event with a small concert all for free of course. In june we took the PechaKucha Night Aalborg #17 to a reconstructed ferry and made it a floating cultural event at Plagen – om:form and beautifully the idea of reconstructing the ferry to a culturalvenue was presented at a PechaKucha Night February 2013. Amazing to be able to follow a great idea to be reality through amazing work of two architects and volunteers. And now to the essense of present: last tuesday we returned to the harbour and went ashore in the fabulous new Aalborg University building for art & technology and architecture and design made by Henning Larsen Architects just next to Musikkens Hus. Almost 200 people found their way through the buildingsite and rain to the new auditorium. This PechaKucha was organized as a close collarboration between the art & technology faculty and the culturalhouse HUSET - and its been great fun to work with Julia Spicina - who also created the beautiful poster and Jacob Borrits Sabra. The programme was opened by Stahl Stenslie artist, professor and head of the faculty – with an amazing presentation of “Haptic art”. Stahl works with installations that involve interactive art-suits that can give an extra dimension through creating touch from the suits. Lance Putnam is also a professor at art and technology and he presented us to “Harmonic pattern function” both from nature, how we perceive and react to it as humans and how to create it with computers and expand our consciousness of perception of the world – quite a mindblowing presentation! Lars Bonde is an artist and owns a small gallery for conceptual art called VÆG (WALL). Lars is in the middle of a fantastic muralproject in Aalborg where 10 artists from all over the world have been invited to make artworks on walls in the city picked out together with the cityarchitect. Signe Højmark is projectmanager of a new landartart project and festival called LANDSHAPE here in Nordjylland and she presented the ideas of both inviting artists to make great works and to invite the public in to create landart. Morten Poulsen is educated musician from the conservatory here in Aalborg and is very passionate about music – especially drumming! He was here to present a new music instrument he’s created to go with a playstation and he both presented and played for us! In our PechaKucha break the audience could enjoy posters from all over the world exhibited in the hall and of course buy a beer, coffee and cake in the studentsbar. And graphic designer Adam Hansel had placed free posters to grab on the tables. First presenter after the break was Elizabeth Jochum is an Assistant Professor of Art and Technology at Aalborg University. She has a BA from Wellesley College and an MA/PhD from the University of Colorado Boulder. Elizabeth is the co-founder of the Robot Culture and Aesthetics research group at the University of Copenhagen. Her research focuses on how to design robots that are as fascinating as people. But as she started out saying: our best machines are made of sunshine J She gave us examples as to how the interaction between robots and actors and dancers can expand artistic experiences of theatre. Andreas Mathew has his own small company make both artistic projects and this project he called “Survivalskills”! Survivalskills is an interactive game the uses augmented reality - made for pupils in elementary school to create awareness and information about craftsmen educations. Adam Hansel went slapstick presenting his desire of sharing the power of the poster with everyone and two students Allan Yde Enevoldsen and Grith Sandberg shared their thought and dreams regarding being educated in art and technology. Last came two other students Alf Andersen and Jean Francois Robin talking about “Visual symphony”. Alf and Jean Francois had cooperated with Aalborg Symphony Orchestra to make visuals to a concert with Stravinskijs Firebird. We finished off with a small DJ concert in the hall and a lot of chit-chat and cosey happy people. Angd guess what: the rain had stopped outside J See ya at HUSET for a PechaKucha Night Aalborg #19 on December 9. 20.20 Thank you from Annette Scheibel cityorganizer of PechaKucha Night in Aalborg
