How are our bodies integrated into today’s complex digital systems? How can the links between bodies, data and reality (facts) be experienced with modern technology?
Performance of RESIDENZ PLUS Workshop # 2 for Tanz – Barmer Bahnhof ‘NEXT STATION’ in collaboration with INSEL eV
Brigitte Uizu (choreographer and dancer), Lucas Becker (3D artist), Kerima Alvaza (3D costume designer) and Tim Pauly (computer scientist and sound artist) are currently exploring these and other questions as part of their stay at Tanz – Parmer Train Station. In their project THE DEAD CODE MUST BE ALIVE! They explore the hyperrealistic view of e-feminism.
This is where dance meets programming and artificial intelligence: the basic idea is a never-ending dystopian data body accessible through analog and virtual elements. Through this interplay of movement and technology, artists develop a dance narrative.
At the end of the residency, they provide insight into their technical work in the workshop performance. After the show, there will be a discussion for the audience with the residents as well as with Thusnelda Mersey and Pascal Merigi (Artistic Director of the Tanz-Bärmer Bahnhof station).
