Performing Thresholds - ATOM-R Workshop
This interdisciplinary workshop led by the ATOM-r collective will engage movement, text, and technology through the contemporary paradigm of mixed reality in which physical and virtual spaces are intertwined. Participants will construct a ritual performance working with a gestural and movement vocabulary that activates the sensors of their smartphones to generate texts, images and audio.
The workshop will engage the activation of thresholds between seen and unseen, real and fake, natural, supernatural and unnatural. We will combine movement/ dance, language/ poetry, and new media/ coding to explore the “queering” of historical rituals and ceremonies. The workshop is aimed at artists from a range of backgrounds relating to performance, writing, and technology.
