TILT KIDS FESTIVAL

 

Inaugural Children’s Festival Presents 5 Premieres

by Artists from France and Around the World

 

March 4–April 3
 

New York, NY, January 15, 2015The Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) today announced programming for the inaugural Tilt Kids Festival. The new cultural festival for families will feature multidisciplinary international work paired with commissions from New York artists, including five premieres. Tilt Kids Festival runs from March 4 through April 3. Tickets will go on sale December 23 at www.tiltkidsfestival.org.

 

Philosophy and music, circus and magic, design, dance, and gastronomy come together in a month of ambitious and playful events specially curated for the audiences of today and tomorrow. For this year’s edition of Tilt, several of the artists will be creating their first-ever works for children.

 

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy and FIAF are thrilled to embark on this new adventure with a network of leading cultural institutions: The Brooklyn Academy of Music, NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, Museum of Food and Drink, and The Invisible Dog Art Center.

 

The inaugural edition of the festival will present the world premiere of The Total People, a commission from the Obie-award winning New York theater company 600 Highwaymen and their first work for young audiences; the US premieres of Cabaret de Magie Nouvelle from Parisian new magic artists Cie 14:20; circus-theater spectacle L’Immédiat from French dancer and acrobat Camille Boitel, a founder of James Thierée’s Junebug Symphony Company; Carnival of the Animals from Australian circus-theater group Circa; and the New York premiere of Orchestra for Life from DUO1804, featuring New York-based Haitian-American composer/violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain and Afro-Electronica musician DJ Val-Inc.

 

The festival will also present Carousel of Ideas, a special day of events for kids and families featuring a forum of ideas elaborated by New York based philosopher Simon Critchley, interactive performances led by contemporary choreographers Miguel Gutierrez and Bouchra Ouizguen, and a performance from Jérôme Bel; a reading of Catherine Verlaguet’s adaptation of the hit play Oh Boy!, directed by celebrated French artist Olivier Letellier; as well as a flavor workshop led by New York restaurateur Wylie Dufresne, his first program specially designed for children.

 

Additionally, the festival will present the art installations Le bestiaire, conceived by French artist and designer Ionna Vautrin; and Anima, a special exhibition created for children and their families by New York-based French artist Prune Nourry and Valentine Losseau, founder of the magie nouvelle artistic movement; as well as two Art de Vivre talks about health and well-being curated by journalist Erica Lumière, specially designed for parents.

 

“With Tilt Kids Festival we challenged ourselves to position art for young audiences in the context of the most uncompromising productions for any age group. We commissioned and sought out projects on par with our aesthetic ideals, brimming with both intellectual integrity and playfulness. Our goal is to spark children’s creativity and encourage them to love the arts through unique, transformative experiences.”—Lili Chopra and Violaine Huisman, co-curators of Tilt Kids Festival

 

“The demand for high-level children’s programming is greater than ever, and at both the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and FIAF we’re thrilled to put a greater emphasis on young audiences.”—Bénédicte de Montlaur, Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy and Marie-Monique Steckel, President of the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)

About Ionna Vautrin

Industry meets poetry in the work of designer and artist Ionna Vautrin. With everyday objects that are simple and obvious, yet never cease to surprise, her work embodies a gentle and generous presence, organic and geometric shapes, a cheerful and colorful spirit, and an intuitive and functional usage. After working for such brands as Camper, George J. Sowden, and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Vautrin won the Grand Prize for Creation in the city of Paris in 2010. She opened her own studio the following year. Today, Vautrin works with brands including Foscarini, Moustache, Kvadrat, Christian Dior, Sancal, Super-ette, Lexon, Serralunga, and more.

 

Le bestiaire is part of Oui Design, a program initiated by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

About Valentine Losseau

About Daniel Bernard Roumain

Daniel Bernard Roumain’s acclaimed work, as a composer and performer, spans more than two decades and has been commissioned by venerable artists and institutions worldwide. “About as omnivorous as a contemporary artist gets” (The New York Times), Roumain is perhaps the only composer whose collaborations traverse the worlds of Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Savion Glover and Lady Gaga. Known for his signature violin sounds infused with a myriad of electronic and urban music influences, Roumain takes his genre-bending music beyond the proscenium. Roumain made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2000 with the American Composers Orchestra performing his Harlem Essay for Orchestra, a Whitaker commission. He went on to compose works for the Boston Pops Orchestra; Carnegie Hall; the Library of Congress; the Stuttgart Symphony, and myriad others.

 

About DJ Val-Inc

DJ Val-Inc (Val Jeanty) is a Haitian-born composer, percussionist and turntablist, who uses technology to lead listeners into her dream-like expressionism of Afro-Creole and “Afro-Electronica®” compositions. Her works invite the World of the unseen as she incorporates her African Haitian Musical traditions into the present and beyond, combining acoustics with electronics, and the archaic with the post-modern.
