15. Juli-21.Juli: ART OF READING MAPS - SYSTEM_M mit Conny Zink und Zajia Lab
system_m is an interdisciplinary performance group using digital practices to generate outputs of choreography, sound, projections and performative bodies. "Art of Reading Maps" is a new text written by author Thomas Ballhausen and the score and initiative for performer Daniel Aschwanden, digital artist Conny Zenk, designer Yinan Zhang and various musicians based in Beijing and Xi'An (like Gunknown and Qinling) to develop a new performance at zajia lab / Beijing. Within four days the artists will research on interactivity between spoken words, gestures, sounds and live generated animation to present their final outcome within a performance at zajia lab / Beijing (curated by Ambra Corinti) and Aperture Club / Xi'An (curated by system error).
In their approach towards text and media they oscillate between strict composition and improvisational scores resulting in an accumulation of hybrid formats.
The body is gathering digital practices like sampling, dancing nervous vibrations, produces loops of minimalistic motion as a kind of swooshing movement and puts itself into space-consuming dialogue with the architecture, patterns of light, projection and sound.
