[-> Information auf Deutsch]

Within the virtual living rooms in which past and present, the real and the imaginary intermingle, two performers are confronted with their doubles. As the interfaces of a machine that constructs time, they participate in the production of an auto-poetic system. Movement reveals and transforms the invisible to the visible; the body is disassembled into its individual parts and dislocated; identities are overstepped; memories erased. The body is multiplied, becomes the node and forms a network that overcomes its own borders and acts in other places. In recombinant - the techn(o)rganic body both dancers are embedded into a responsive media-environment and equipped with a wireless sensor system and microphone. Their movements change and distort sound and image; they control cameras, change perspectives, record themselves and manipulate the material in real time. Every one of their actions influences every other element in the system. kondition pluriel is an interdisciplinary group from Montréal, Canada. Their site-specific performances integrate immersive media-environments, in which the elements of performance, dance, and installation are creatively linked. The group seeks to develop a language that stands apart from established disciplines and thus questions conventions.

recombinant - the techn(o)rganic body is a co-production with the Banff New Media Institute, Canada, and is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et des Lettres du Québec, Conseil des arts de Montréal, BKA kunst, Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Canada
