"Algorithmic Bodies" (AT), the new production of Hamburg based choreographer Marcelo Doño, is a post-digital multimedia dance performance situated at the intersection of virtual and analog worlds. It explores the fusion of bodies with technology in all areas of life, where information about ourselves is generated even while we sleep prompting us to consumption. Focusing on how this redefines our self-perception and sense of "hyper-connectivity".
The goal is to create interdimensional dance performance that invites the audience to engage with their relationship with technology. Asking: How deeply are we already rooted in this technological spectrum and what traces do our daily interactions with digital technologies leave behind?

We are looking for a Hamburg-based MEDIA ARTIST to collaborate with and develop an AUGMENTED REALITY custom software to be used in combination with motion tracking devices (possibly IPads). This custom software will then be used live to interact with the two performers on stage.

„Grind Me“ is a multimedia solo dance performance centered on the digital “hyper-sexualized” body. The piece explores how this state affects movement, and the consequent emotional impact on the body through the exchange of amateur pornographic imagery.
