  • Theatre Heterotopias: Sea on Stage

    • Abstract: In the paper “Theatre Heterotopias: Sea on Stage”, the sea is discussed as a heterotopia per the term by M. Foucault, as a liminal ‘other place’ on stage, challenging the perception of theatre and reality. Sea redefines both the physical and the conceptual space, and as an element or an environment with transformative power that calls for a response installing, per Waldenfels, a presence of otherness. It evokes the question of (in)visibility, as examined by Merleau-Ponty, and of below-the-surface, neighbouring with Andrew Sofer’s Dark Matter. The possibilities of presenting sea as an ‘other’ space on stage are endless, from symbolic or abstract representation to the playful use of props, and from audiovisual projection to the literal use of water. Real water on stage challenges the boundaries between performance and reality; its special relationship with the body of the actor stimulates liveness in its double meaning (live material and event) triggering unusual audience response. In order to explore how the presence -or absence- of sea on stage affects both the concept and reception of the space and the bodies of the performers, examples from international productions such as Ariane Mnoushkine’s ‘Le dernier caravanserail’, Bob Wilson’s ‘Odyssey’, Eric Stube’s ‘Lady from the sea’, Simon McBurney’s ‘The Encounter’ and Ivo van Hove’s ‘Persona’ will be analysed, in relation to aesthetics and performance practice.

  • 6th International Conference on Motion and Computing

    • Abstract: The following is a review of the 6th International Conference on Motion and Computing at Arizona State University, October 10–12, 2019. The theme of the interdisciplinary conference was Movement Imaginaries and included papers, panels, presentations, performances, demos, and workshops from both scholars and artists from a wide range of disciplines. This review focuses on the panel “Generative tension in cross-disciplinary collaboration”, from John MacCallum, Teoma Naccarato and Jessica Rajko considering the question: “what aspects of your practice/research are invisible to your collaborators'” Published on 2020-02-19 12:36:13
       
  • Per-forming the Sense of Touch: A Spatio-Temporal Embodied
           Technology of Resistance

    • Abstract: How does resistance and struggle arise and from where' What embodied mechanism and social conditions allow for thought to be thought and for action to emerge' To what extent are movements and freedoms already ‘choreographed’ or pre-determined by regulatory bio(techno)systems and how can post-modern choreography incorporate the radical social shifts and conflicts of our times towards equally radical ‘post-safe’ ethics and practices' A historical, philosophical and psychoanalytical study of the senses with a focus on the sense of touch will aim to reveal the unexpected tactile dynamics of biopolitics (Foucault, 1979) and insert touch into the relational workings of post-capitalistic struggle. Expanded beyond mere contact, touch is posited as a pivotal socio-political instrument of regulation and orientation, and by deduction, an equally powerful mean of resistance. Using historical and contemporary forms of activism, this paper will assert touch as precursor to action in an event arising from the body. The lived body via the senses – of which touch is posited as the mother of all (Montagu, 1971) – is reformulated as a technology bearing and reproducing sensory values and hierarchies structured by ideology (Howes, 2005), therefore as historical and subject to change and intervention rather than physiologically stable entity (Duden, 1991a). Here, the sensual body is boldly re-drawn as wilfully trans-forming, of itself and social relations at once. Published on 2020-02-19 12:34:12
       
  • Choreography of Sonic Chopsticks and Intervention of Digital Technology
           with Dancing Bodies

    • Abstract: Performing with chopsticks, in the interaction between dancing bodies and digital technology (software, web-cameras, sensors and projectors), raises questions about new forms of choreography and the consideration of cultural identity in the adoption of technology, when such dancing bodies are mediated by computer programming. Following the notion of the choreographic systems conceived by choreographer/digital performance scholar Johannes Birringer for his metakimospheres, I use ordinary objects from Chinese everyday life such as chopsticks as an interface to engage with dancing bodies from the perspective of a choreographer trained in Chinese dance traditions. The use of chopsticks in my practice-based research connects to recent sonic arts experiments with sounding materials and recontextualized electronic instruments, and this article explores the sticks as multivalent props or extended instruments which also act as a kind of microcontroller (eliciting sounds through microphonic and software interaction). The convergence of sonic chopsticks and computer-mediated dancing bodies raises images of violence and nostalgia in the dance pieces Qi (Breath) and Xun (Looking For), which are part of the project X-Body, a full-length digital dance work. Embracing a transdisciplinary perspective, this paper examines the configurations of dancing bodies associated with specific interactive technologies, ordinary objects and movement, and probes some of the dimensions of cultural performance in digital choreography.

  • Playing the Zombie: Participation and Interpassivity in Gothic XR

    • Abstract: Marina Warner states that the concept of the zombie ‘embodies the condition of our time’ as it represents contemporary experiences of selfhood shaped by new technologies (2006: 357–8). In this paper I argue that, due to the interactive and immersive qualities of XR, the concept of the zombie in some recent Gothic expressions does not just represent contemporary experience of selfhood but is a development of an ‘interpassive’ role we play in everyday life (Pfaller 1996; Žižek 2008). Interpassivity is seen to be the ‘underside’ to interactivity, degrading any authentic experience or contribution of the individual. In some cases, the interpassive role in Gothic participatory experiences can be seen to be a cathartic extension of this everyday interpassive experience. However, the addition of a sadistic element to this role can lead to a ‘zombie-participant’ experience, which is a perverse and Gothic resistance to interpassivity. The paper focuses on two XR events that strive to reclaim the authentic self in what can be interpreted as a plight to recover the authenticity of individual experience within the closed loop of XR experience. The first is Whist (2017) by AΦE, where there is an attempt to reify the self through the trigger of the participant’s gaze. This results in an interpassive experience that demotes agency: rather than interpret the self, Freudian discourse is seen to ‘stand in’ for it, thus reflecting an interpassive state. The second is Doom Room (2018) by Makropol, where there is an attempt to reclaim the soul through re-birth via self-sacrifice. ‘Doom Room’ entwines the story of interpassivity with a sadistic interactive design, resulting in a destabilisation of ‘self’ that ultimately resists the interpassive experience.

  • Guidebook for Mirror Worlds. Poetics of Transparency in Augmented Reality

    • Abstract: It denotes the feature of an interface that is able to erase itself (in the sense of ‘interface-less’), making the user experience more immediate. In augmented reality technologies, for instance, transparency is distinctive of an interface that simultaneously displays virtual elements and real perceptions enabling a increased perception toward other surreal worlds, and at the same time, it is a mirror technology, since it enables a fundamental subjective and embodied dimension of the mediatic experience.The aesthetic transparency of an augmented reality interface could denote a complete domestication of virtual objects (buttons, indicators, dynamic texts etc) directly in the field of view, but nonetheless it is possible to detect a cognitive transparency, by denoting the idea of a ‘metaphor that guides thinking and reveal the staging mechanism’ (Fuller 2017) going to focus on the perceptive and cognitive concession to the user as well on the opportunity to manipulate data directly and consistently, such are the applications in technics and medical field. Since they give access to this knowledge, these technological companies legitimise themselves and charged with value of accountability and social inclusion.The contribution will bring as references forms of augmented reality texts referable to hacktivist culture, understandable as a complainant operation through subversive practices, often produced by artist and hacktivist and aim to affirm a sort of ‘black transparency’. Nonetheless, augmented reality will be figured out as a technology for the emergence of virtual data from the physicality of reality, in terms of a situated knowledge, and this is the case of the cognitive transparency.The doubleness of technology – that correspond to a doubleness of applications, with the technological enhancement on one hand, and the technological scepticism about the other – will be related finally to the concept of mirror – as the apotheosis of opacity – trying to understand a cultural configuration of the transparency.

  • Performance without Actors: The Theatrical Docu-Fiction

    • Abstract: Performative practice is based on the presence of at least a single performer and a single spectator. The presence (Brook 1998), mainly tied into the bodies of the subjects involved, becomes a determining factor for the construction and circulation of meaning, a fundamental element of the embodied statement, where the body acts as the instance of the enunciation as well as the statement (Nancy 2000). What happens when a theatre performance without actors is performed' A new aesthetic emerges, consisting of interactions and transformations, the possibility of cooperation/interaction between contradictory elements. The analysis of two contemporary plays, Perhaps all the dragons of the theatre collective Berlin and Nachlass pièce sans personnes of Rimini Protokoll, will give us opportunity to discuss the growing phenomenon of the presentation, and representation, docu-fiction in the theatre, that is, when the technology generates the appearance (Schein) of an actual presence, without, however, bringing what is actually a manifestation (Erscheinung) – bodies and objects, as it is currently its present (Fischer-Lichte 2008).

  • The Encounter with the Real: What Can Complicite’s Theatre Performance
           The Encounter Teach Us about the Future of VR Narratives'

    • Abstract: The most recent emergence of relatively inexpensive VR technologies has received an enthusiastic attention from the entertainment industry, visual and multimedia artists, and academia. The world of computer gaming is thriving with the new VR platforms and the number of VR games is multiplying exponentially. Similarly, quite a few research projects have been funded in order to explore the potential of the immersive technologies in disciplines as wide and different as health care, nuclear decommissioning and nonfiction immersive documentaries. Similar to the advent of its various digital predecessors at the end of the last century, the encounter with this highly interactive and immersive technology has stirred up the discussion about the nature of the medium and its relation to its predecessors. A particular interest seems to be placed in the narrative possibilities of the medium. Parallel to this shared enthusiasm, however, one can also easily sense equally shared disappointment with the current state of affairs when it comes to the artistic climaxes delivered in the VR medium. The voices from both the entertainment industry and creative academia are clearly dissatisfied with the rather rudimentary narratives presented in the most of VR games, as well as more artistically ambitious immersive experiences. The medium which claims the highest technological level of immersion still struggles to keep its audience truly immersed in its fictional realities. In this article I argue that the answer to this challenge might come outside of the world of immersive interactive gaming, and that the key for understanding the nature of immersion might come from the realm of theatre. My study of Complicite’s performance The Encounter demonstrates that this work manages to achieve the level of immersion unconceivable for any existing VR experience. The key elements for this success are the profoundly relevant subject matter (the narrative based on Petru Popescu’s Amazon Beaming), ingenious use of binaural immersive sound, and extraordinary story-telling performance delivered by Simon McBurney. In other words, it is the combination of the performance’s intertextuality, the multimediality of its means of expression and the intense presence of its narrator/protagonist that accounts for extraordinarily immersive viewers’ experience. If the medium of VR is ever to achieve a comparable level of narrative and formal complexity, it needs to break away from the vacuum of the games-logic based interactivity and shift towards a more intertextual, multimedial and narratorial aesthetic.

  • ‘The Biscuit Town’: Digital Practice, Spatiality and Discoverability
           in Reading’s Heritage Sector

    • Abstract: This paper focuses on two artistic research projects created in collaboration with museums in Reading, UK; the hybrid-media installation The First World War in Biscuits (2014), shown in a ‘white cube’ gallery in Reading Museum and the online resource War Child: Meditating on an Archive (2016): www.war-child-archive.com.The paper analyses approaches taken during the projects’ development to matters of spatial and digital curation. It considers how they engaged with the idea of collaboratively-produced ‘histories from below’ and with the cultural heritage sector priority of discoverability. It concludes by noting some emerging questions connected with the projects’ longer-term physical and virtual materialisation. Published on 2020-02-19 12:12:09
       
  • Screened Live: Technologically Reconfiguring Notions of the Author

    • Abstract: The dramatic tradition suggests, for the most part, a progressive relationship between author, performer, producer and audience, in which the author/s originates the playtext, the performers develop a production, and the producer presents the outcome to the public. The arrival of theatrical performance and the fine art exhibition on cinema screens worldwide, the phenomenon of ‘live relay’ or the ‘as live broadcast’ in the arts, challenges this familiar perception of the author/production/audience relationship. The emergence of screening live performances in cinemas has modulated the once-traditional dramaturgical interaction between text, production, and audience. The ‘live relay’ tests the very way we think about theatre and performance. With its destabilization of production and audience spatio-temporal locators, the ‘live relay’ disrupts the vocabulary of theatrical description and it inflects both ontological and epistemological attitudes to the theatre-viewing of the past, the theatre-making of the present, and the interactions thereof. The live relay, moreover, causes disturbances within what can be considered the authorial field. If postdramatic theatre shifts the dramaturgical valency from playwright as creative genius to director as auteur, then the mediaturgy of the ‘live relay’ renders both of these models redundant. This article examines the proposition that the live relay has given rise to new authorial voices and bodies, those of the cinematic director and the institution. These are bodies and voices that need to be accommodated within the mediated and intermedial paradigm of screening live performance in cinema. Published on 2020-02-19 12:08:22
