On-the-Move presents its exploration of virtual mobility in the contemporary performing arts 'Excited Atoms' by Judith Staines.

Excited Atoms outlines a history of virtual mobility in performance, presents the main types of work with inspiring current examples and traces some of the most critical issues and motivations for artists, cultural producers and promoters to collaborate, share, make, question, present and innovate using virtual mobility.

In depth interviews with twenty-one key practitioners, cultural managers and critical observers present informed points of view from around the world. A specially commissioned essay from Ghislaine Boddington (body>data>space) traces a personal pathway through creative collaborations in performance telematics. A Glossary explains some of the terms and helps demystify technologies and areas of creative practice. A research section Explore More presents over 150 links to artists, projects, platforms, reading and other references to extend the exploration of virtual mobility.

Learn more about networked performance … enlarging the action radius … participatory strategies … one-way, two-way and third spaces in interactive performance … virtual stages … avatars … live streaming of work in progress … transdisciplinarity … and so much more

The study was funded by the Fundacion Autor.

Zehar magazine. Performance Issue

the new edition of the magazine Zehar, a publication by basque art centre "arteleku" is talking about performance. Publication is downloadable at the website (see link below) Languages: Spanish and Euskadi....imageZEHAR #6565 PERFORMANCE EDITIONThe current edition of Zehar asks of us, through performance, a dual task: to detach ourselves from the mere immersion in the images of which each moment of our daily lives is composed and also to refl ect on how these images are shaped and on the imperceptible relationships that are gradually woven between them.In the same way that there are different ways to understand a performance, there are also manifold ways of making use of it. The use of the performance put forward in this number is like that of a broom employed to gather up and tidy the accumulated visual material that we have. The aim, then, is to arrange all the visual material that surrounds us and the structures that are brought to life and made sense of by these images, so allowing us to develop through them and to create new spaces that can respond to our needs.We have put into print the edition exercises that different people have shown when faced by the accumulation of images of our surroundings. It will therefore be a chain of exercises in series, a kind of incomplete series of scores or rehearsals for different and possible performances. Some of the proposed exercises are theoretical, others deal with performative experiences and, fi nally, there are also actual performative exercises perse.ZEHAR_65_EN.PDF — PDF DOCUMENT, 5369KB---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------65 PERFORMANCE EDICIÓNEl presente número de Zehar nos propone, a través de la performance, realizar un doble ejercicio: abstraernos de la mera inmersión en las imágenes que van componiendo cada uno de los momentos de nuestra vida diaria y reflexionar acerca de cómo se van conformando dichas imágenes y de las relaciones imperceptibles que se van tejiendo entre ellas.Así como hay diferentes maneras de entender lo que es una performace, hay también múltiples formas de hacer uso de ella. El uso de la performance propuesto en este número sería como el de una escoba utilizada para recoger y ordenar el material visual que vamos acumulando. Se trataría, pues, de ordenar todo el material visual que nos rodea y las estructuras a las que dichas imágenes dan vida y sentido, lo que nos permitiría desenvolvernos entre ellas y crear nuevos espacios que respondieran a nuestras necesidades.Hemos trasladado al papel los ejercicios de edición que diferentes personas han realizado ante el cúmulo de imágenes de nuestro entorno. Será, pues, una cadena de ejercicios en serie, una especie de partituras o ensayos inacabados para diferentes y posibles performances. Algunos de los ejercicios propuestos son teóricos, otros tratan sobre las experiencias performativas y, por último, hay también performances propiamente dichas.ZEHAR_65_EN.PDF — PDF DOCUMENT, 5369KB
