reality mix - attitudes passionelles

Interactive Performance (2004)

A choreographic play by Stephanie Thiersch/Cologne and Micha Purucker/Munich

«Outside the neighbourhood, beyond its fleeting and continually threatened changelessness, stretched a half known city where people met only by chance… » Guy Debord

For Attitudes passionnelles – Reality Mix performer and audience arrange a meetingpoint, the venue, which is sourrounded by several dériveurs (datascouts). “A dérive is a generating principe and systematic praxis for a promenade”. The dériveurs are moving through the city in a defined manner, communicating indications of the space directly via the internet in the form of pictures/sound/text. Live-actors are moving through the venue. They are functioning as composers, creating a sensuous parallel existence out of the sent information and their own, known data.
