„Trans//form“ is a choreography looking at the progress of evolution to determine the future of the human body in an increasingly technologized world. Three dancers dance a critical approach to topics like cyborgism and transhumanism, exploring to what extent the human body can be modified, improved or even rendered obsolete through technology. Which importance does the carnal body hold for mankind? What will happen to humans when their body becomes dispensable?
Transforming the body into the digital world, where the limiting laws of our real nature are replaced by digital laws of a virtual reality, a redesign of the representation of the individual is taking place.
Entering the virtual world, we become part of and experience blurring the boundaries between the digital and analogue world. Virtually bodiless, the users establish an interaction with the transformed dancers.


Directors: Suse Tietjen, Maria Gibert, Martin Kupfer & Fabian Knieling
