presented by ICK Dans Amsterdam

Thu 28 & Fri 29 MAY, 2020

Bogomir Doringer curates a two-day online festival that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing.

How do these rituals happen in online space? What are the solutions that can empower us and activate our bodies? How do we navigate through this switch between private and public space?  What kind of knowledge and ideas can we extract from new media artists and dancers? Together, we will create an online experience that stays part of our memory as festivals do.

Last few months, our movements and ways of communicating have been impacted by a global crisis. Distances between our bodies in public and private spaces have been regulated by new measurements. Our freedom of movement is on hold. Dancing became possible only in private, and suddenly it has a different meaning and context. It introduced another form of visibility, “performing” for the web camera on our online meetings, dates, events. In the beginning, it felt weird and awkward, but we are adjusting to it. Now it is time to emancipate the online body and get a deeper understanding of the new realness. It is time to unmute the body.

Emotional Porn
– Exhibition of the Self. 

The recent digital revolution has brought us to constantly produce visuals of ourselves which are strongly influenced by conventions of age, gender, sexuality, nationality, and social positioning. For Body (UN)mute Keren Rosenberg will create a live performative act questioning what it means to perform for a camera. Where does the body finish and the screen starts? An audiovisual art installation which explores our social obsession in self-exposure through the use of modern technology.
