UNDERWATER CABLES Summer School is a 10-day course where students form groups across three remote stages located in Zurich, Singapore, and Trondheim to collaboratively work towards a final performance.
The theme of this year takes inspiration from last year’s online choir workshop by Unnur Andrea Einarsdóttir. The submarine cable network forms the backbone of the world wide web and the modern global augmentation of human cultures and ecological environments through technology, also known as the Technosphere. Telematic performances are a unique techno-art form that takes place simultaneously in both the physical and the virtual. This hybridity is established through synthesis, symbiosis, and intimacy, as well as forms of resistance against socio-political power structures and entanglements between technologies, corporations, and humans.
Students gathered in the hub locations will connect online for 4 hours every day via a real-time video and audio tool kit developed at ZHDK. In this unique hybrid environment, they will learn how to apply practices of improvisation, scoring, staging, choreography, and other hybrid media techniques. Additionally off-line activities will be planned by each host institution.
