This new performing arts creation from Kònic thtr fuses dance, science, technology and society into a mould-breaking format. It examines the relationship between the human and the non-human and seeks to reflect upon the hierarchy humankind imposes upon other species. It explores inter-species relationships at both a micro and a macro level, the place where the structuring of the hierarchies between living, dynamic organisms takes place, inside and outside of our body. The stage is a smart device that simultaneously combines a variety of media: image, sound, light… all of which become visible or audible due to the active participation of the performers. An integrated interactive sound and 3D visual system, for a sensitive, participative eco-techno-staging.

The body as part of the landscape, and the landscape as part of the body. The body in action, dance interrelated with the performance’s bio-techno-devices, take us on a dramatic and choreographic journey, an in-exo-corporeal narrative that ranges from microscopic introspection inside the human body, embracing its cells and the other entities living within it, to an outside viewpoint showing the body immersed within the landscape.

Kònic thtr is an artistic platform dedicated to contemporary creation, straddling the boundaries of art, science and new technologies. Kònic thtr’s artistic projects draw their inspiration from forms of representing and understanding the body in our highly technological society, using the languages of choreography and digi-dramaturgy. This innovative company has become a benchmark in the Catalan arts scene and has, since the beginning of the 1990s, produced a range of research and development-based performance and visual arts projects.
Kòniclab provides the framework for research into, experimentation around and the development of the technological tools implemented in Kònic thtr’s interactive projects, including interactive devices, mobile apps and ad hoc software for networked composition. Rosa Sánchez and Alain Baumann provide the conceptual, creative and technological driving force behind Kònic thtr—Kòniclab.

This show is included in the expanded ISEA2022 schedule.
