The performance entitled The Zero by artists Juan Pablo Camara and Zander Porter takes place on Friday, 24 January at SomoS as part of the 2020 "Vorspiel," the preliminary program leading up to the "Transmediale - Festival for Art and Digital Culture."


The performance The Zero unites the physical realm with the digital where the presence of technology interferes with rehearsed and improvised human interactions between the two male-embodied performers.

The artists describe their performance as a "hypocenter: a ground zero war-zone staging a never-before-seen battle. The rules of combat are described by a computationally-encoded 'TreeMap.' The TreeMap is a node-matrix of relationally where nodes are defined by states of embodiment in which both performers enter with telepathic, ultra-connected immediacy. Rehearsed through eye-to-eye contact (and sometimes 'hand-to-hand combat'), the Zero's matrix permits accelerated transitions, unforeseen evolutions, and the erosion of identification."

The Zero represents Juan and Zander's memory algorithm. An emptied nest, it is a choreography welcoming a hoard of new figures, fictions, species, and meshes always sitting at the edges of representation.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this much anticipated performance.
