partizipative AI Performance (2021)
-> Hier geht's zur Projekt-Website
SystemFailed deals with structures of power in the "smart" age. Algorithmic governance techniques are made playfully tangible and a critical examination of digitalization is initiated. Three performers and a self-developed AI system, represented by moving light and projections, face the audience.
The project is divided into three modules:
SystemFailed:exploration - the technical development
SystemFailed:exchange - the workshop
SystemFailed:experience - the performance
FlyingDrinks - the theater show infront of your house (2021)
-> Here you find the project homepage
In the late summer of 2021, our new performance FlyingDrinks will go on tour through five residential districts in Leipzig. It enables encounters for the residents of these housing complexes and creates a neighborhood atmosphere.
We come with a mobile stage, perform in front of the apartment buildings and use streets, courtyards or parking lots as venues. The audience take part from their window seats and balconies and interacts via phone with the performers. Through participation in the performance we offer a connection between the separated housing units.
We aim to reach different social classes and age groups: high culture, subculture and people who do not (regularly) go to the theatre. We want to bring culture to the people and enable them to participate in cultural life.
a collective performance experience (2020)
-> Here you find the website with the descriptions of the participating artists
This evening you will not spend anonymously and lonely in front of your screen, on the contrary! Here you will have a collective experience and maybe you will finally get the answer from the universe that you have always been waiting for.
BehindWalls sees itself as a platform for artists of the "free scenes". The dance_ video_ performance_ music_contributions have been created in China, Germany, Greece, Switzerland and Spain.
The online streaming is not public, but designed for a few viewers, which makes the evening a special and intimate experience.
The proceeds of this campaign are intended to benefit people who live in the camps in front of the fences of Fortress Europe under unworthy, inhuman and hopeless conditions.
performative aesthetic experiment (2018)
The aesthetic experiment is designed for a small group attending the training process of a neural network in our mobile test lab.
A light object of 13,000 LEDs shows shapes and patterns that the neural network associates to sounds. The performance lasts 12 minutes each, and can be played for up to 4 hours.
The associations of the neural network are translated audiovisually and made intuitively tangible. A spherical object serves as a volumetric display to visualize speculative artificial intelligence in the form of sound-image associations.The object consists of a seemingly chaotic heap of led stripes in which three-dimensional shapes, patterns and structures of light appear. The visual structures are produced by the neural network through the association with sounds.
dance performance (2018)
*JU.PI.TER* is a dance performance, installation and audiovisual spectacle site- specifically developed for the Fusion Festival. The staging is a constantly changing, living set design - a symbiosis of performers, video projections, light, sound and stage - evolving over 4 hours in 4 nights.
repetitive performance (2018)
„Welcome to MagicDrink“
Welcome to a world where the beauty of the moment makes the impatience of everyday life disappear. The interaction takes place via an analog telephone system, your wishes become intimate secrets.
„Do you want to float, dance or love?“
Whether sensual, fiery or sassy, your desire is the drive of the glamorous humanoids who serve you your MagicDrink in perfect deceleration. Supported by light installations, musicscapes and video mapping, the 3m high performance stage is timeless, between vintage and science fiction.
audiovisual installation (2017)
The audiovisual installation consists of a hanging, tunnel like, net of led-stripes. Visitors can enter the installation. Every intersection of the LED stripes is linked to a sound. When a light impulse reaches an intersection, it triggers the sound and the pulse is split. A chain reaction of light and sound spreads into the room.
The room installation itself becomes an instrument, which sounds different at each location depending on the hanging - the crossing points are never identical. Light and sound interact, in that no medium dominates the other, but both react to each other.
Welcome, dear passenger, on a voyage through a surreal landscape. Meet us, let us touch you, let yourself fall. Let us guide you to a reality concealed behind the obvious. Allow yourself a moment of repose, a moment of presence with your self, a moment free from the constant demand to think.
LaBodega is a 10 minute introverted and exclusive performative installation designed for a single audience member. LaBodega invites each guest into the interior of a modified 12-meter antique bus, a hidden world. In order to be shielded from the outside world, our guest receives headphones, through which the live soundscape is heard.
With each step the interior expands and contracts as new spaces and characters are revealed to the traveller.
LaBodega is a total sensory experience in which the guest forms a symbiosis with the actors and is invited to form a new awareness of the self in relation to space, time, movement and human encounter.
LaBodega is the cargo hold of our imagination, a bag of tricks constantly surprising us without ever revealing its depths.
