An evening with internet/teleperformances by Annie Abrahams, Christophe Bruno, Constant Dullaart, Igor Stromajer and Brane Zorman, focused on the relations between contemporary performance practice and the internet.

With performances by:
Annie Abrahams, Huis Clos : No Exit – On Translation (20:00)
Christophe Bruno, Human Browser
Constant Dullaart, Arranged online moments
Igor Stromajer & Brane Zorman, Ballettikka Internettikka Insecttikka (22:00)

Performmikka Internettikka focuses on recent new possibilities surrounding tele- or internet performance. With the increased speed of internet connections in recent years and the omnipresence of the net, it has not only provided these media artists with inspiration, but also with a platform and a medium. In their work the participating artists respond in various ways to the technical possibilities and limitations of the internet, and to the implications the medium has for content. How does a simultaneous and collective performance being carried out at different places around the world look? What does the delay and distance contribute to the chances and limitations? How does an audience deal with viewing a live ‘event’ with illegal recorded images that are being made at that moment somewhere else in the world? In addition, the artists respond with irony to the Internet as a source of entertainment, and as a capitalist instrument. In short, what does the internet contribute to contemporary performance art practice in terms of inspiration, mediation and as a platform?
