祭典與習俗是能夠定義人類連結的工具,具有將社群改造,同時又將社群與更大的世界萬物連結,並找到我們真正的目標。銀河建築師要以劇場、道具操控與具有和諧圖像的舞蹈揭示我們身邊的世界。討論自然的文理、光線的動作、聲響震動、意識的脆弱,銀河的巨大以及現在我們所認識宇宙中的原子物質結構。而我們的世界是尊崇著一組簡單又非常優雅的比例所運行著的。

Ceremonies and rituals are tools that define the template of human bonding. They transform the community, of which they belong and thus bonding one another to ourselves, collectively connecting us with the greater world that supports us, and to our true purposes.
Galactic Architect attempts to reveal through theater, object manipulation and dance the harmonic patterns that underlie and create the world around us. The piece explores the growth patterns of nature, the movement of light, sound vibration, fragility of consciousness, galactic immensity, and the molecular structure of matter in the known universe. All aspects of our world are governed by a set of very simple and extremely elegant proportions.
As incredible as it seems, the world around us is comprised of a handful of elegant and mysteriously simple relationships; all of which can be described by our exploration of a handful of geometric shapes we first came to know as kids, namely the triangle, square, pentagon and hexagon. Sacred Geometry is the study of these harmonic proportions first discovered by the Pythagoreans; the ways they relate to compose the natural world. Galactic Architect is a story ritual with the intention to plant a subliminal seed of illumination that we are all inner connected to something greater than ourselves.

Cérémonies, us et coutumes, ce sont les outils capables de définir les relations humaines. En transformant les groupes sociaux de ce monde, ils nous lient à l’univers plus grand et nous dirigent vers notre vrai objectif. Avec le théâtre, la manipulation des accessoires théâtrals, la danse présentant les images harmonieuses, “GALACTIC ARCHITECT” tente de révéler le monde autour de nous. Cette pièce explore la forme de croissance naturelle, le mouvement de lumière, le tremblement de son, la fragilité de conscience, l’immensité de la Galaxie, et la structure moléculaire des matières au cosmos où l’on connaît à présent. Le fonctionnement de notre monde se régit en proportion avec une simplicité et une élégance extrême.

JEFF CALAFATO

近年來傑夫卡拉法朵一直不斷地藉由表演藝術的傳統以及透過創造與解碼這些靈感的語言來找尋生命大哉問中的的意義。在這過程中,卡拉法朵結合了他自身藝術背景以及對於操控物件、馬戲與舞蹈的熱愛。而結合這些創作元素的研究,以及他自己製造特殊的馬戲道具(Juggling props) 傑夫稱為「藝器」artifacts 也讓他因此打開知名度,卡拉法朵操作這些藝器,創造出幾何的觀看世界。這些藝器召喚出一個全然劇場的當代雜耍上的創作可能,而這些道具的存在更凸顯出特殊且好似異空間的視覺環境,從舞蹈與馬戲出發,卡拉法朵成為以互動連結觀眾的魔術師,透過操作與街頭劇場帶領他們進入獨特的故事敘述中。

 

For the last decade Jeffrey Calafato has been evolving the idea of a performance art ritual with the intention of creating and decoding a creative language in pursuit of life’s greater meanings. In the process of creative discovery Mr. Calafato has combined his fine arts background with the love of object manipulation, circus and dance. With these combined creative elements and research he has become globally known for his creation of unique juggling props, he refers to as artifacts. These artifacts, when manipulated, are visual geometrical wonders to behold. The artifacts command a whole theater creative contemporary juggling possibilities and the very presence of these props manifest a unique and almost otherworldly visual atmosphere. Wielding elements of dance and circus, Mr. Calafato becomes an illusionist interactively connecting his audiences to a unique way of story telling through object manipulation and street theater.
