Initial Anomaly

Louise Baduel & Leslie Mannès {Brussels}
  • Duration: 60'
  • Location : Centre Culturel de Huy

Coprésentation Centre Culturel de Huy

After System Failure and Human Decision, the choreographers and dancers Louise Baduel and Leslie Mannès use this final opus to conclude their trilogy about the impact of new technologies on our everyday lives. Inspired by transhumanist theories, the four protagonists confront the idea of their death and imagine an AI programme that is responsible for creating their posthumous shows. A complex algorithm, fed with scenarios from films, science-fiction series, songs and choreography selected by the team – would this be capable of replicating the company’s fingerprint?
Drawing on a variety of effects – both visual and sound effects – a string of joyous and theatrical speculations and some playful criticism, the foursome depicts humanity while savouring all of
its faults. Smart and funny!
