UAV SOP BTW DTF- TanzTage
Created with the support of TanzTage Festival in the “Strip down to everything” one-on-one project.
We connect through screens. This one-on-one performance takes place on Skype, and juxtaposes two extreme screen situations: cam girls and drone warfare. These seemingly different on-screen experiences give perspective on intimacy and how we look for it, politics and how we unwittingly participate in it, objects and their power as autonomous agents, and ethics. The audience is given a military style mission at the outset: connect with a lost drone. When they are faced with a human body on Skype who can only communicate through messages that are pre-recorded on an iPhone, they are given both space and agency to face the screen in a different light.
