Sentimental Bits - This Magic Is In Spite Of Me

Gloria Höckner & Team

Four performers and a humanoid sex robot engage in a game with surveillance technologies that analyse their emotions and classify them. They explore what it means to be »recognised« in the eyes of artificial intelligence. They hack their digital twins, transform and duplicate their physical bodies. Their gazes cross those of the camera, faces become instruments. In immersive soundscapes, the performers momentarily shake socially constructed categories perpetuated in technology. They make the area in between their world and discover the poetics of glitches – disturbances in the system.

Gloria Höckner (they, them) deals with the relation of the body to technology and (power) structures. After »Futurecore 2000 – All Beats Are Beautiful« as part of »Introducing…« at the Performing Arts Festival 2020, »Sentimental Bits« is Glorias second collaboration with Ballhaus Ost.
