Project management & Production

Fronte Vacuo, “Humane Methods : [ΣXHALE]”

▶︎ Production, project management, financial administration for series of performances, presented in 2022 at: CTM Festival, Radialsystem Berlin / Tanzhaus NRW, Düsseldorf / Volkstheater (Volx), Wien

[ΣXHALE] is a rhizome of the Humane Methods project, an ongoing reflection on violence in algorithmic societies.

Humane Methods (2019-ad infinitum) is – and will be – the only project of the performance group Fronte Vacuo. It is the saga of a broken, future society seeking how to respectfully coexist with nature and technology, oscillating between new forms of algorithmic violence and posthuman empathy. The stories of this fictional society become stage productions, street performances and hybrid live installations where audiences live hyper-real science fiction scenarios. By experiencing the world of Humane Methods, audiences are brought to reflect on empathy, violence, communal action and power structures in ways that are rewarding and challenging, sensorially charged and evocative.
In Humane Methods, dancetheatre, bioart, interactive music, living scenography, and AI technology integrate into pulsating ecosystems. Each work in the series is a rhizome: each dives into different facets of the same theme and world and characters shift interchangeably from one story to the other. The works created so far combine in different ways live art with technology and the human with the non-human to create an alternative artistic language. It is an aesthetic research into how a synthesis of symbols, movement, music and technology can ignite a politics of poetic engagement.

Berlin Centre for Advanced Studies in Arts and Sciences (BAS), UdK Berlin : Symposium “From the provisional to improvisation: strategies for action in an uncertain age”

▶︎ Project management

The 3-day-symposium “Out of the Blue”, curated by Margit Schild and organized at the House of World Cultures, Berlin, in October 2017, created the framework for a cross-disciplinary dialogue between art and society. The aim was to draw attention to the characteristic features of improvisation or provisional activity, to define them more clearly and to make them visible for everyone in the sense of a generally applicable strategy for action. Guests from different academic, artistic and social spheres were invited to give presentations on their approach to issues relating to improvisation. In parallel, workshops and working groups offered the opportunity to gain inspiration and exchange views.
