|Be Like Body–Obsolete|
a poetic meditation on age, obsolescence and technology
‘BE LIKE BODY’ is a live performance about how we, humans, relate to technology. Suzon Fuks collaborated with six award-winning writers from around the world. It will premiere in the international Magdalena Online Festival, streamed from Brisbane, Australia, on Sunday 27 June 2021.
In times of the pandemic, we rely increasingly on technology. But are we going to be overthrown by robots and algorithms? Is this a sci-fi fantasy or a reality?
The six writers, Amaranta Osorio (Mexico), Annie Abrahams (France/Netherlands), Nasim Khosravi (Iran), Parvathy Baul (India), Ya-Ling Peng (Taiwan), and Younghee Park (Korea), responded to these ideas from different perspectives.
‘BE LIKE BODY’ incorporates dance, video art, and multilingual poetry. Suzon will invite online audience members to interact at times.
Venue: on Zoom, streamed from Brisbane, Vulcana's
‘BE LIKE BODY’ is the culmination of eighteen years of Suzon creating performances on the Internet. She has become known internationally as a pioneer, and was the founder of Waterwheel, a visionary platform (before Zoom) for creative collaborations and performances. (It ran from 2011–2016).
