Everything Tendentious or M in Luck is a site-specific Guest TheaterDance Performance from Germany regarding the interrelation between utopia, longing, and HumanMachineSystems in digital times. This tatraum production is a co-creation by German Movement Dramaturge Michael Schmidt, French video artist Yoann Trellu, German musician Ansgar Tappert, and German performers Lena Visser, Miriam Gronau, and SLC based performer Tanja London. The SLC edition will feature one local performer.
“The performers explore in partially simple and partially hermetic scenes how much room there is left for the individual in a digital world. Are we becoming digital machines in a Cyber-world? Do we surrogate a human partner with an artificial one? Citations of Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden” about the retreat to nature [Hans Christian Dany’s critique of cybernetics and Ted Kaczynski’s invocation to revolt against the industrial system] serve as antithesis. (…) The tatraum production does not give direct answers but offers an aesthetic challenge by inviting to reflect via suggestive movements as well as collected and integrated video material.”
