Masterclass by Bea de Visser at Forum, about her film projects for young filmmakers held during the film festival Art Film Fest in Trencianske Teplice, June 24 to 25, 2013. Forum is a two-day event focusing on the challenges surrounding the distribution of European Arthouse films in Europe. The event combines masterclass, workshops, roundtable discussions and individual meetings with international experts in the field of distribution and film presentation.
De Visser's masterclass inquires and discusses renewed interest for the performative, the sonorous language of music, the social context of film and the fundamental changes of mindset in relation to production, publicity and distribution.

Pear-shaped Explorations Project (2013) by Bea de Visser . The art project - a series of staged and recorded performances - began in spring 2013 and will continuously grow over time.
The introduction of the project was embedded in the context of a performance expedition for the Urban Explorers festival. An expedition comprising four different performances, as part of her research on language and sound as a method of communication, incomprehension and manipulation, with guests Nicoline van Harskamp and Z’EV. Nicoline van Harskamp joined with a new work ‘European English Exercise’ and Z’EV with a ‘Lullaby' on carillon.

The Dordrecht Museum invited Bea de Visser in the context of Urban Explorers 2013, to make the the first public rehearsal, as a preliminary to the art project. Thereby was she kept to the audience component of the hiking expedition format as existing within the framework of Urban Explorers. By way of introduction to the art project Bea de Visser wrote a scenario for two actors in the role of composer and writer, with absurd dialogues on language and sound, with a nod to the social media, contemporary composed-, pop- and film music. The city bell-ringer performed at times when the particular piece was discussed in the dialogue. As resounded The Stranglers, the introduction tune of James Bond and the key composition of Erik Satie, that would be later staged in the Pear-shaped Exploration Project.

Pear-shaped Explorations by Bea de Visser is a series of staged and recorded performances that investigates how we are positioned and where we find ourselves in the social space. Bea de Visser focuses on the act of listening. The introduction of the project Bea de Visser works with countertenor Oscar Verhaar and two pianists Javier Krohn and Erwin Rommert Weerstra. It is the examination of 'Modest Doubt' which is performed here for the first time in a study stage. As part of her research on language and sound as a method of communication, incomprehension and manipulation she invited two guests for her program within the context of a performance expedition, Nicoline van Harskamp with 'European English Exeercise' and Z'EV with a 'Lulaby' on carillon.

Short synopsis:
Brief encounters in a semi enclosed public space, the pool. These brief encounters are more suggested than actually proposed, because the action ultimately always occurs offscreen. In a stream of repetitive patterns without added music score, no text and the lack of a plot, we can not escape the underlying tension evoked as we witness people who meet in an empty, barren public space .
