Dears,

the open call for performers to join my new dance/theater production for 3
humans and 3 AI prosthesis is closing soon.

The call is for Shanghai-based performers, and I share it here in the hope
it may reach directly or indirectly someone of interest.

A summary and link to further details below.

Wishing you well,
M

<SUMMARY>
Project: ALIA: ZǓ TÀI, a co-commission by Chronus Art Center and CTM and
co-funded by Goethe-Institut's International Co-Production Fund.

Artists: Marco Donnarumma (DE), Nunu Kong (CN)

Keywords: experimental dance/theater, interactive sound, robotic
prosthesis, physicality, hybridity

Call type: Performer (salary-based)

Application Deadline: June 3rd, 2018

<ABOUT THE PROJECT>
Taking its title from the Latin “alia” - the other – and the Chinese “zǔ
tài” - configuration, “Alia: Zǔ tài” will be an experimental dance/theater
and interactive music performance.

Three dancers wear three artificially intelligent robots on their bodies.
The robots are like prostheses, but behave according to their own agencies.
The dancers and the machines thus engage in a re-discovery of the self and
the other, transporting the audience in a sensual, stirring and poetic
choreography of movement, sound and light.

Produced in Germany and China, the piece will explore new identities
emerging from the increasing use of artificial intelligence and robotics in
both countries. How do those technologies influence the way we understand,
categorise and discriminate human bodies across cultures? What differs in
German and Chinese culture? What kind of body is “normal”, why and where?



<WHAT WE LOOK FOR>
We are looking for one performer to join Donnarumma and Kong, so as to form
a team of 3 performers. Dancers and performers working in the field of
experimental dance, experimental theater, improvisation, butoh, as well as
physical theater are all welcome to apply. We are searching for someone who
is accustomed to push the limits of the body, both physically and
conceptually; someone who is accustomed to hybrid forms of performing art
and who is interested in developing an in depth understanding of technology
through corporeal experimentation. Given the concept at the core of the
project, we are looking for a performer with a particular body presence. We
are therefore interested in performers with any body size, shape, color or
gender identification.

Selected applicant will be expected to join rehearsals, premieres and
tour(see production details below). Salary includes fee for rehearsals and
performances. Costs of travel, accommodation and per diem in Berlin will
also be provided.
