New Emergences presents: Event #20

The Exquisite Corpse > recomposing the body

Join us for the premiere of 'The Exquisite Corpse', a game composition in sound, image, text and movement. It will be created, inspired by the game known from the surrealist art movement, where a completely new body is built out of separately drawn parts. Four musicians, a visual artist and a performance artist enter the game, to generate a score in real-time that explores the discrepancies and frictions between our relationship to our bodies and society’s ideal norms. The inside and the outside.

After the performance there will be a discussion between makers, artists, thinkers and audience, to explore these themes. Less familiar concepts are touched upon, such as androgyny as the surrealist ideal and de-gendering as a means for social justice.
