Who is man in the age of technology and what role do he and the machines surrounding him play? “Das Totale Tanz Theater” deals with this question against the background of the development of artificial intelligence in the form of an immersive virtual reality experience.
Inspired by the stage experiments of the Bauhaus masters Oskar Schlemmer and Walter Gropius, a new, virtual Gesamtkunstwerk emerges that explores this existential question in an interactive dance of man and machine.
The installation Das Totale Tanz Theater, a project of Interactive Media Foundation and Filmtank, co-created with Artificial Rome, has been shown for the first time at the Academy of Arts Berlin in January 2019 and is currently on an international tour. A further stopping off point in Germany is the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation.
Premiere January 17, 2019
