STREAMING

DATE : 13 - 14 December 2019

LOCATION : Bangkok Art and Culture Centre

B-Floor Theatre has the pleasure to present a collaboration with Julian Weber, a Berlin-based choreographer, titled streaming. Four dancers from Berlin spend 4 full weeks with 4 B-Floor performers to create a three-hour durational performance that will move through the BACC building.

 

streaming is supported by the International Coproduction Fund of the Goethe-Institut and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC). The project was curated by Ass. Prof. Pawit Mahasarinand, who envisioned Julian Weber working with B-Floor at the art center.  

 

streaming looks at huge accumulations of people in public spaces from a choreographic and sculptural perspective. Thereby the work refers and makes use of both the digital phenomenon of data-streaming in the world wide web, and the dynamics of water flowing in a channel. The dancers analyze and dissect the physicality, social codes and group-dynamics found during big gatherings, while shifting between abstract, emotional and political. The work develops a dramaturgy of constant rising and descending of intensities, like waves that constantly propose different perspectives on power relations between different participants. 

 

Digital phenomena such as compressing, coding, glitches and live-streaming are translated into analog movement material and are intersected with the forces acting within ocean currents. While the dancers mingle with objects, the human body becomes literally material, which is used to build permanent changing structures and body-formations. As they move through the entire building, the borders between subjects and objects get blurred, forming an avalanche, which shifts shape, location and quality. Thereby the audience has to position themselves towards the events, when they need to sidestep or get sucked into the movement-stream of the dancers.
