Alienate by Danni Spooner and Carise Zangerle Murray – Created in collaboration. Alienate is a live performance piece exploring cyborg culture from a digital native perspective. Using choreography, sound and projection, Danni and Carise aim to demonstrate the notion that technology is the structure of cycles in nature and thus not bound to digital realm.
Land(e)scape by Konstantina Skalionta – Land(e)scape is an intimate studio-based solo performance which explores how mind and body affect each other and to what extent they are affected by the environment we live in. Land(e)scape invites you, the audience member, to share a journey through different landscapes, mindscapes and emotions. During the performance you will be invited to close your eye, lie down or walk in the space in order to experience parts if it. You are free to decide to which extent you would like to follow these directions and therefore choreograph your own experience in the performance.
Library by Jake Walker – Library is a short dance film which showcases 50 random dance movements all generated from instructions given by a coded computer program. Jake explores how the language used in the instructions brings about a certain quality of movement however doable. This film will also be played in the foyer at iC4C between 10am – 5pm during the UKYA takeover and audiences are welcome to drop in anytime between these hours. Jake will be present during this event to talk about his work.
