Centered around digital technology, looping and real-time manipulation, 003_playback is a participatory, movement exploration presented through a live-streamed platform. In the work, the audience votes on the sound, lighting and how the movement will be altered. The performer then kinaesthetically responds to these real-time choices made by the participants, via visual playback. Drawing from video games and simulation technology, this interactive piece explores surveillance, control, dismemberment and agency. Who is in control? What is at the participant’s discretion? How far will the work be rendered?
Registration closes 5pm PST on January 20, 2021.
