Microsexes workshop w/ Jaime del Val
Prostheses and biotechnological interfaces are rapidly increasing our ability to interact with artificial and immersive environments.
In this techno-sphere, however, affective and relational activities seem to be reduced to informational patterns. The expressive capacities of human beings tend to an homogenization induced by information and control technologies such as Big Data and Machine Learning. These attempts to standardize forms of interaction aim at the transformation of agency into models of predictable and computable behaviors. By promoting the myth of technological transparency, new forms of cognitive capitalism generate an informational bubble aimed at controlling bodies and the trajectories of de-sire.
We therefore ask: How can technologies become a creative pattern within the heterotopia of the bod-ies? To what extent can technological environments become the object of subversion? How can indeterminacy and non-predictability be used to re-territorialize our physical and desiring identities?

Emotional Porn – Exhibition of the self
How much of what we share about ourselves is real?
Work by performer / Choreographer Keren Rosenberg, Visual artist Tony Markus Sacharias and Filmmaker Nicola Cavalazzi in co-production with Dansmakers Amsterdam, Beamlab and Frisian Dance Days.
Emotional Porn- Exhibition of the Self is a boundless universe of dance and audiovisual art installation which explores our social obsession in self exposure through the use of modern technologies. In this performance the boundaries between dance, video art, design and sound dissolve into an immersive space which welcomes people to connect to themselves through the reflection of the other.
In the current reality we all share, the use of image and positioning is in the forefront of social discussions. Our existential experience is in constant shift between virtual and physical worlds. We produce never ending images about our lives, experiences, bodies, while in constant quest to create the perfect image to be seen by real and imagined audiences.
The performance is an engaging experience where on stage, a physical and virtual interface is created live between the human body, image and performance. Tony and Nicola create shifting virtual universes while Keren brings them to life with her presence, physicality and performance. Inviting audiences to question their on their own perception of identity, as the work touches realms of intimacy, vulnerabilities, fear and confrontation.
In addition, a workshop and a public digital archive is part of the project alongside its immersive and interdisciplinary performance.
WORKSHOP & ONLINE ARCHIVE
Throughout their two-year process, Keren and Tony worked with a number of people of
Various age groups and communities on themes of the project. The result can be seen as a preliminary study, while its valuable findings is embedded as a source of deeper understanding within their performance. The online archive consists of images and personal notes that offers a personal insight into their creation process.
