Optikum 2018

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Optikum is a dance and sound performance that explores choreography through post-antrophoscene aesthetics and viewpoints. It is inspired by the litterature of author Byung Chul Han, who in recent years has become known for heavily critizing neoliberal power structures in digital media and it’s effect on the human condition.

In this slow-paced choreography, bio-cosmic physicality and a futuristic/dystopian soundscape interweave in an attempt to create a reflection room about the interconnectedness of life and the terrestrial in an era increasingly dominated by humans, disembodiment through digital media and ecological crisis. The piece has been developed and performed at the HIER=JETZT Platform 2018, with further performances in Gasteig, Munich and Zagreb Dance Centre.
