The piece consists of a solo part, rehearsed and a collective-improvised part unrehearsed.

None of the performers will know what the others are presenting until the moment of the performance . I would like to work with performers who can work the concept of exhaustion in dance (Andrei Lepecki) and performance (Becket the quadrant)  non-movement and still movement, more postmodern and conceptual, more absence than presence ....

Sex, digital technology, indescribable variations of gender identity, and a party atmosphere which demands of the guests to be at ease with nudity, sex and a general laissez-faire, n’ importe quoi, joie de vivre? It could be just another night in any Berlin club worthy of its name, if not for the chance of starring in a movie that combines the meta-modern doomed replicants-in-love scenarios of Blade Runner, the anarchic humor of a John Waters DIY opera buffa, and the ornate gender semiotics usually decorating the baroque queer-theory of Judith Butler.

Tomorrow, at Mindpirates, at the Fluid: the movie open casting call, Taiwanese-American experimental filmmaker Shu Lea Cheang is seeking “gender-fluid humans and non-humans who can act, suck, jerk, fuck, eject and get on a virtual high”. If you’ve watched his previous saga, I.K.U, which was the first pornographic film to be screened at the Sundance Film festival, you will be familiar with the plot concept for his next sex-in-the-age-of-biotechnology epic: set in a post-AIDS future, it’s about a mutant generation of Zero-Gens who are bio-carriers of Delta, a white, fluid, sexual-ecstasy-inducing drug and thus are hunted by multi-national corporations, new age drug lords, and all sorts of bizarre characters eager to satisfy the most post-human of kinks. Producer Jürgen Brüning and casting director will be present, so Email them your CV to register.

Los Angeles: Congress on Research in Dance

Looking for TWO DANCERS  - to accompany my performative lecture presentation

on April 20, 2013, between 3:30 and 5pm on the panel of ‘Tempo and Tactics’ to be presented at the Conference of the Congress on Research in Dance "Tactical Bodies: The Choreography of Non-Dancing Subjects".

Conference Location: UCLA, Glorya Kaufman Hall - April 19–21, 2013

In my lecture I will reference the choreography of L. Chétouane’s ‘Sacré Sacre du Printemps’, its intentions and relation to contemporary theories of philosophy and physics. In cooperation with my theory based performance, that regards speech and dance in this case as complementary, I am looking for two trainees who perform simultaneously movements that follow the parameters that are drawn from Chétouane’s “space measuring” choreography.

Please note this is not a recreation of the former work but a transformation and improvisation of its movement type onto the actual situation of presentation.

The method, visual material and possible rehearsal can be discussed via email/skype or in person a few days ahead of the event.

This commission involves:
- Performance: about 20 to 30 min on April 20th, scheduled to be between 3:30 - 5pm.
- Advanced meeting plus rehearsal some days ahead (according to dancer’s schedule)

- Honorarium.

Those interested, can be provided with some online video material to get an idea. Though I will arrive in L.A. a few days early to the conference, I would plan to be in contact before, for discussion, setting up working meeting and possible rehearsal.

 If you are interested please contact me as early as possible at:

DanceDigital is pleased to announce a new artist development scheme that will be run in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire.

DanceDigital is currently looking to work with a cohort of artists in the development of a festival that will be presented in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire in April 2014. DanceDigital will recruit new Associate Artists and new Catalyst Artists, who will be given opportunity to develop new work through a support scheme that includes mentoring by DanceDigital Artistic Fellows, space in kind, a cash contribution and presentation in an international festival event, which marks culmination of the scheme.

DD2012Call for Applications


Digital technologies have created new, and now accepted, modes of production and have repositioned dance performance as a multi-sited, digitally mediated art form. Investigation of our current theme, Mobilities offers opportunity to consider how digital technologies transform experiences of the mobile in new choreographies that may be located on stage, online or on the ground.  We are interested in the distinct performance vocabularies and innovative modes of participation that are enabled by digitally embedded choreographic processes.  We are also interested in the mobility of collaborations across disciplines that bring together the expertise, vision and innovation of artists, technologists, scientists and users in the creation of new art works.

If you are interested in developing work that moves audiences in new ways and creates touching human experiences by harnessing choreographic practice and digital innovation, then we would like to hear from you.  We are particularly interested in proposals that address the interactivity of performers/audience and technology, and from those who are interested in developing new high quality performance work through interactive methods.

Call for Proposals Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland is seeking proposals for an upcoming major exhibition OSCILLATOR

Call Opens: 4th SEPTEMBER Call Closes: 12th OCTOBER Exhibition duration: 7th FEBRUARY 2013 – 14th APRIL 2013

Calling all vibratory beings! Electron wizards, mega-nano-nauts, chemical visionaries, code infinitizers, pendular kineticists, sleep cycle sleuths, and feedback fetishists. OSCILLATOR is a curated exhibition exploring the vibrant vibratory world of oscillators, oscillations, and feedback.

This diverse, interactive show will feature installations and demonstrations ranging from cyclical chemical reactions and swinging bridges to out of control automated pricing schemes and el Niño. We are interested in oscillatory explorations from many different fields and genres, including chemistry, physics, astronomy, earth sciences, biology, mechanics, neurology, mathematics, logic, and the arts.


Oscillators are ubiquitous, both in human-made systems and in physical, biological, and informational processes. They arise, either by design or by accident, in the presence of interconnected parts and feedback paths. Sometimes they’re a critical component, essential to the correct function of a system, other times they might be a curiosity or a nuisance, or even a catastrophic force. The exhibition will use the idea of the oscillator to bring together a brain-shaking array of experiments, interactive activities, and artworks.

Potential oscillations include: self-oscillating chemical systems like the color/pattern generating Belousov-Zhabotinksii reaction and the mercury beating heart biological oscillators like the ubiquitous circadian rhythms found in nearly all lifeforms, the electric fields created by the ghost knifefish to aid in navigation and communication, the great synchronized choruses of various amphibians, and the complex rhythmic patterns found in human brainwaves oscillatory physical phenomena like the chaotic motions of coupled and multiply articulated pendulums, the marvels of self-assembling nano materials, and disastrous sympathetic resonance in bridges, and buildings geophysical phenomena like el Niño and other weather patterns, continental drift, and cyclical eruptions in geysers and volcanoes math/logic/CS procedures and techniques for creating and probing oscillations, like digital waveform generation, logical games, brain teasers and tautologies, and pseudo random number generators repetitive and oscillating systems used in music, dance, and the visual arts, like guitar feedback, pattern music, cyclical dance forms, and tiling patterns cultural feedback and oscillations like memes, fads, and sampling and reuse Curator and

About Science Gallery: Science Gallery is a dynamic new model for public engagement at the interface between science and the arts which has rapidly achieved significant international profile since its launch in Dublin in 2008. Science Gallery is an initiative of Trinity College Dublin with support from the Wellcome Trust, Google, Dell, PACCAR, ICON, Intel, IBM and other partners. Since opening in 2008 it has attracted almost 1,000,000 visitors. Attracting a core audience of young adults aged 15-25 from diverse backgrounds Science Gallery ignites a passion for creativity through engaging, dynamic exhibitions and events on major themes ranging from Music and the Body and the future of water to the future of cities. These programmes bring science and technology into dialogue with art and design, and give young adults a taste of the excitement of cutting-edge research and innovation in a stimulating sociable environment. Five factors distinguish Science Gallery from existing models of public engagement with science and technology, including science centers and museums: Our flexibility – five dynamic, changing programmes per year, with no permanent exhibition; Our focus on 15 – 25 year olds as our core target audience bridging high school, university and early stage career; Our open call process – Science Gallery crowd-sources its installations and events on broad themes linking science, technology and the arts; Our fresh approach to connecting the university and the city – bringing university research groups, staff and students into dialogue with the arts and creative community and the public; and Our Leonardo Group – 50 inspirational individuals drawn from the local creative community of scientists, artists, engineers and entrepreneurs who feed ideas into the development of Science Gallery exhibitions and events. Following the success of Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin and significant international interest in this new model of engaging young adults with science, technology and innovation, we received seed support of €1M from Google to launch the Global Science Gallery Network (GSGN), in partnership with leading universities located in urban centres worldwide, with the goal of establishing eight Science Galleries worldwide by 2020.

Call for entries: VIDA 13.0

At a time when the notion of life is once again located in an uncertain domain, a wide range of artistic initiatives come together to illustrate and investigate this phenomenon; they examine the impact on the collective conscience and the way it is manifested in cultural, technological and social thought.

Over the last decade, in the same formal space, VIDA has been bringing together inter-disciplinary projects that respond to this situation. By means of formal strategies that defy the boundaries between existing practices, these projects offer new ways of reflecting on what we understand by life and artificial life.

Fundación Telefónica announces the VIDA 13.0 Art & Artificial Life International Competition, which for the last twelve years has awarded prizes for artistic projects using technological mediums offering innovative approaches to research into artificial life.

The projects may be based on systems which emulate, imitate or speculate on the notion of life through current research and technology. These systems may involve attributes of agency and autonomy which display specific behaviour, are dynamic, react to their surroundings and evolve, and which question the frontiers between what is alive and what is not, between synthetic and organic life.

As in previous years there are two categories to the competition:


In this category VIDA 13.0 will award prizes to artistic ALife projects developed after 2008. The sum of 40,000 Euros will be shared between the projects selected by the jury: First Prize: 18,000 Euros, Second Prize: 14,000 Euros, and Third Prize: 8,000 Euros. In addition seven honourable mentions will be awarded.


In this category VIDA 13.0 helps to fund artistic ALife projects that have not yet been produced. This is aimed at citizens or residents of countries comprising Latin America, Spain and Portugal. The sum of 40,000 Euros will be shared between the selected projects.

The winning projects will be subsequently exhibited at the VIDA Gallery, and may be presented in exhibitions related to art and new technologies organised by Fundación Telefónica or in which it takes part.


Period for submission of projects: from 19th July to 7th November 2010.
