In a topical world of blurred personal and public space and simultaneous local/global habitats lies the intricate place of virtual/physical orientation
The performers mimic chosen identities – morphing between avatar, cyborg, humanoid, robot, using the electronic, the bionic, the digitronic. Hyper-existence is all around them. In the interconnected, multi-nodal space of real and virtual, they need to be sharply connected and speedily responsive to “the others” – tele-intuition is learnt on the move.
In “DARE WE DO IT REAL-TIME?” these boundaries are speedily dissolved so we can see, with humour and irony, the potential errors, glitches, thrills and magic moments that transpire. “DARE WE DO IT REAL-TIME?” was created as part of Post Me_New ID, a co-production between body>data>space (London, UK), CIANT (Prague, Czech Republic), TMA Hellerau (Dresden, Germany) and Kibla (Maribor, Slovenia) supported by the European Union within the Culture 2007 Programme.
The presentation emerged from an interauthored group process involving 11 European artists specialising in performance, video, sound, virtual worlds and interaction. For more information or to join our blog please visit: www.postme-newid.net
