Ruth Cathlow’s definition of the artist role in her book Artists Re:thinking the Blockchain:
“Artists are good in mediating abstractions for our perceptions through play, open exploration and supposition. They can tolerate, even relish, extended encounters with difference, contradiction, muddle and slippage between symbolic and material possibilities without rushing to usefulness or simplicity. They have a kitbag of methods and processes for revealing the practical affordances and animal spirit of a subject, medium or technology. They know that a way to get to know something that does’n yet exist is to collaborate with its possibilities and to do something/anything with it or about it. And by doing so, they materialize and shape what it will be, allowing many other people to access, approach and reach out to it with different parts of themselves:”

From Peking to Queens to Manipur

12249540465?profile=originalIf a slim, handsome man or woman waits on you in a Manhattan restaurant, you just assume they are performers. But do you do the same in Chinatown and Flushing? Perhaps you should.  Since 1988, Qi Shu Fang, master of Chinese Opera, has been developing her own Peking Opera Company with her husband Ding Mei-kui in Queens. The professional lives of their company resemble those of American performing artists of all genres who juggle rehearsals, performances, lecture-demonstrations, tours, and outside jobs.   Now in their late sixties, Master Qi and Ding who trained since childhood in China, found the void of knowledge about the Peking Opera in the US was their opportunity. Though their lifestyles are modest, their art is magical.


This documentary directed by Alan Govenar gives us an insight as to how the Cultural Revolution affected their art and its masters, the reasons behind the elaborate costumes and makeup, a glimpse of the training.  Designed to lure you into their world, MASTER QI AND THE MONKEY KING makes you yearn to see their Peking Opera,  to study this 200 year old art combining dance, mime, singing, acrobatics, and stories, to understand its aesthetics, both visual and oral. It provokes so many basic questions about its style. Is the dancer/martial artist trained to emulate a sword? Their precise, direct swoops come to an abrupt halt, punctuated by the percussionists. Does the percussionist determine the ending or is he following the dancers?


12249541455?profile=originalMaster Qi shares at her small kitchen table a joke about how three cultures handle a fan. The American wears the fan out, beating the fan in t

he heat until the paper is shredded. The Englishman sways the fan very slowly as only a true gentleman should. But the Chinaman opens the fan very deliberately and then madly wiggles his face before it…because, of course, he must preserve the fan! 


For more information on Master Qi, visit

I will be bringing this charming documentary to Manipur, India for Re:Play 2013!

Test_Lab: Active Listeners

This edition of Test_Lab will showcase new technology-inspired modes of live musical performance that radically transform the performer’s relationship with the audience.


March 31, 2011. 20:00 - 23:00

V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam



The lyrics to Daft Punk’s “Technologic” – “Touch it, bring it, pay it, watch it, turn it, leave it, start, format it” – allude to the omnipresence of technology in our daily lives and the many different ways in which we engage with it. At a Daft Punk live show, however, it’s predominantly the artists themselves that interact with technology, through musical interfaces. The audience, by contrast, passively observes or dances but rarely touches, brings, starts or formats any of the technology involved in the performance. Yet there are artists who explore technology’s potential to radically break with the traditional performer-audience relationship.

According to Chris Salter, the concert hall has shifted “from a passive arena of listening to an interactive zone of improvisation between sound-making technical apparatuses and their players” (Entangled, 2010). The exciting new modes of performance resulting from this shift have recently gained much attention in publications and conferences. Exactly how these new performance modes affect the performer-audience relationship has however hardly been explored. What does it mean to be an active listener in an “interactive zone of improvisation”? And what does the audience gain from it all?

This edition of Test_Lab will showcase new technology-inspired modes of live musical performance that radically transform the performer’s relationship with the audience. While some of these projects and performances, such as CrowdDJ - Tom Laan, and Nomadic Sound System - Ben Newland; turn the audience into co-performers, others, like Microscopic Opera -Matthijs MunnikEvolving Spark Network - Edwin van der Heide and SPASM 2.0 - V2_Lab; give rise to entirely new modes of listening. As always at Test_Lab, you can touch it, bring it, pay it, watch it, turn it, leave it, start, format it…

This event will be streamed live on from 20:00  to 23:00 CET.

Between the Seas Festival

New York City, August 29th- September 4th  2011


Join us in celebrating contemporary Mediterranean culture!



Between the Seas Festival is organized for the very first time in New York City from August 29th to September 4th 2011 at the Wild Project theater space in the heart of the East Village. The festival seeks to engage performing artists and researchers from the Mediterranean and Mediterranean diaspora with the following goals:

-       Encourage exchange and future artistic collaborations between NYC-based and Mediterranean-based artists

-       Contribute to the examination of Mediterranean identity/ies by encouraging discussion and exploration of the region’s commonalities and differences as manifested in arts, history, culture, geography and politics

-       Generate interest and debate over Mediterranean identity and culture, envisioning the region’s potential as a model of cross-cultural exchange beyond polarizing and homogenizing discourses.

The festival is produced by Les Manouches Theater Company with the collaboration of distinguished scholars, theater practitioners and festival managers from the US and Europe.  


We now invite submissions for artistic performances [music, dance, theater] and scholarly papers from emerging and established artists, researchers and academic practitioners. The deadline for submissions is March 30th 2011. Please see for information and submission guidelines in each category.For information email

CYNETART 2010 Videoteaser #1 from Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau on Vimeo.

CYNETART is an international festival for computer-aided art in Dresden.
The festival has been the focal point of the research at
Trans-Media-Akademie (TMA) Hellerau for 14 years now. This work has made
the festival become a countrywide and internationally recognised
platform of digital culture – providing an in-depth overview of current
developments of technology-based art.

Since the foundation in 1997 CYNETART has accomplished a lively mix of
creative programmers, skilful engineers and innovative sound technicians
and media artists from all over the world. With their original ideas
they come together in November every year. The event presents current
trends in the artistic contention about and application of computer and
network technologies.

Every two years the festival is accompanied by the international
CYNETART competition. With a total prize money of 28.400 Euro it ranks
among Europe’s top awards in the area of media art. An international
expert jury chooses the winners of the CYNETART-award from more than 300
submissions and 30 countries. It also awards a sponsorship prize and an
artist-in-residence-scholarship funded by the Saxon State Ministry of
Science and Art.

CYNETART is a dynamic and energy-driven festival which thrives on the
variety of its international artists and visitors. It features the
captivating architecture of the exceptional and authentic venue, namely
the festival theatre Hellerau and a program rich in contrast. The latter
includes performances, exhibitions, lectures and workshops as well as
electronic live-concerts – altogether an exciting panorama.

The upcoming 14th international festival for computer-aided art will
open on 11th November 2010 with the awards ceremony for the CYNETART
competition 2010. On seven event days the 14th edition of the event is
going to present an exhibition with the prize-winning works and selected
competition entries, first-class performances and an evening program
including live sets with international electronic musicians and VJs.

Boston, MA — Dance and technology take center stage with “Loops,” an exhibition and performance inspired by Merce Cunningham’s solo dance “Loops.” The exhibition takes place April 24-May 10 at the MIT Museum, 265 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, and the performance, presented by Critical Moves, takes place on the evening of April 24. The story of “Loops” began in 2001 when artists Paul Kaiser, Shelly Eshkar and Marc Downie created a digital artwork by motion-capturing Merce Cunningham as he performed. The artists developed a sophisticated software program that turned the motion-capture data into a flowing abstract digital portrait; they later added multiple screens and a soundtrack. In 2008, the Cunningham Foundation and the OpenEnded Group (an organization consisting of Kaiser, Eshkar, and Downie) placed all the material online as open source, where it would be available for repurposing by other artists. Boston Cyberarts, with a grant from the LEF Foundation, commissioned four media artists — Brian Knep, Golan Levin, Casey Reas, and Sosolimited — to utilize the “Loops” material in whatever way they chose to create new works. The results are on display from April 24 through May 10 at the MIT Museum, with an opening reception on April 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Additionally the works, along with their code, will be online at as open source for use by others. Also at the MIT Museum, Critical Moves Contemporary Dance Series presents a performance on April 24 by two dancer-choreographers performing works inspired by the “Loops” project. Jonah Bokaer performs “False Start,” an excerpt of his evening length "Three Cases of Amnesia", a technology-influenced solo dance and media work. Marjorie Morgan performs a new solo work of her own, involving live looping sound tracks and simultaneous solo dancing. Sound and video are provided by Jed Speare. The evening also includes a keynote talk by Marc Downie of OpenEnded Group, and a Q&A. The 2009 Boston Cyberarts Festival takes place April 24-May 10, 2009, at museums, galleries, performing spaces, educational institutions, and on the web.

Marjorie Morgan is a Boston-area choreographer, composer, dancer and singer whose work often combines elements of movement, live sound, music and text. She is particularly fascinated with the territory between composition and improvisation, and between narrative and abstraction. Her original works have won her two awards for outstanding achievement in the arts and repeated Best of Boston Awards from the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and Boston Phoenix. She has performed and toured nationally and internationally with the companies of Pooh Kaye, Paula Josa-Jones, Caitlin Corbett, Snappy Dance Theater, and the Mobius Artists Group.

In Boston, he has been known primarily as a member of the Mobius Artists Group since 1995 and as the Co- Director and Director of Mobius from 1996 through 2004. He has recently been Director of Studio Soto, a space for ideas, since 2006. # # # The Boston Cyberarts Festival, launched by George Fifield in 1999 with seed funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, is the only Festival in the world that encompasses all art forms, including both visual and performing arts, film, video, electronic literature, public art, and web art. The 2009 Boston Cyberarts Festival takes place April 24-May 10, 2009, at museums, galleries, performing spaces, educational institutions, and on the web. Cyberart encompasses any artistic endeavor in which computer technology is used to expand artistic possibilities — that is, where the computer’s unique capabilities are integral elements of the creative process in the same way that paint, photographic film, musical instruments, and other materials have always been used to express an artist’s vision.

The Surveillance System says Poulson is a physical network of bodies controlling bodies through movement, video, improvisation and sound. "These works exist somewhere between the realms of performance art and dance. They focus on movement as a language of basic human interaction, whether it is through a subtle gesture, a theatrical spectacle, or the placement of a body within a space." says Poulson.In fact it also represents to many viewers a temporal and iterative dimension to dance with technology capturing proportions of bodies and technologies temporally in dimension and space..Sarah says, " Pre-recorded and live surveillance videos act as signals that trigger the performers’ options within the non-linear dramas. Choreographed and improvisational elements based on spontaneous decisions force us (and/or other performers) to learn how we fit within the system and how we can or cannot manipulate one another. Dynamic systems of communication emerge within these multi-sensory works."Visit Sarah's page
