Liliana Tasso (Argentina) and Martin Nachbar (Germany)
Through a system of web cameras and Skype, two independent performances linked live create a virtual space that interacts with the real scene. A focus on human connective tissue was chosen due to the parallelism akin to computer networks crossing the planet today. A language was designed for every main idea; the body intervened by technology and the body from the stimulus of its internal connective network. A transition from the depth to the surface was created, from a Cyborg to a human connected to their natural corporality, from the distanced technological mediation to a real contact between peers, which transcends the distance and the absence of the tangible body. Two pieces with different aesthetics but linked through common scenes. A piece with a performative approach and a piece with danced choreographic figures. An artistic network creating ties and conveying new meanings.
