I am excited to be traveling to Pilsen in the Czech Republic next week to assist dancer/choreographer, Mirjam Sögner, on her solo LARA at the Aerowaves Spring Forward Festival.
LARA takes the pixelated movement patterns of early computer game characters as its starting point to explore digitally altered physicality. Mirjam Sögner translates the unnatural qualities and glitchy image errors of digital avatars back onto her own body, creating an uncanny hybrid. Imitating the imitation, she creates a physical body seemingly trapped in the digital realm. As our digital and physical realities grow together, this solo offers a bodily response to our changing experience of the world.
