(we apologize for possible cross-posting) Ballettikka Internettikka is an ongoing artistic study of the internet guerrilla performance. After invading The Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow (March 2002), La Scala in Milan (November 2004), The National Theatre in Belgrade (October 2005), Volksbühne Berlin (July 2006) and others, Igor Stromajer and Brane Zorman will perform two new internet ballets: - Ballettikka Internettikka: RenminNetBallet [ People's Internet Ballet - Reinterpretation ] http://www.intima.org/bi/renmin Saturday, 17 November 2007 9 AM Central European Time (GMT/UTC+1) 4 PM Hong Kong Standard Time (GMT/UTC+8) -- in the Hong Kong City Hall handicapped toilet room, by re-enacting and reinterpreting their own last year's VolksNetBallet performance from Volksbühne Berlin. This time, the Hong Kong version of the German people's guerrilla internet ballet will be created. and - Ballettikka Internettikka: Stattikka [ Almost Static But Still Transitive Net Ballet ] Live Internet Broadcast to Tele-Plateau, CYNETart, Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau, Dresden, Germany -> from: Skyscraper Lippo Centre Tower 2 # flat roof terrace | Height = 186 m Hong Kong HK C+ Duration: 30 minutes 17 NOV 2007 -> 22:00-22:30 GMT/UTC+1 (Dresden time) 18 NOV 2007 -> 05:00-05:30 GMT/UTC+8 (Hong Kong time) -- as a part of the Tele-Plateau - Performative Installation in Hellerau, Dresden, broadcasting live from the roof terrace of the targeted skyscraper in Hong Kong (Lippo Centre 2), in front of the densed cityscape, using a sad and lonely commercial Silverlit R/C Robot Program-a-BOT, dancing an "Almost Static But Still Transitive Net Ballet" for 30 minutes in an apparently stagnant Hong Kong dawn.    Dancing a wireless internet ballet in the Hong Kong City Hall handicapped toilet and on the roof of the skyscraper in Hong Kong represents a big conceptual and strategic challenge to the Intima Virtual Base and all the collaborators, therefore, the preparations have been taken seriously, safety measures have been calculated, and the previous experiences have been very welcome. http://www.intima.org/bi Created, operated & realized by Igor Stromajer & Brane Zorman Original music composed by MC Brane vs. BeitThroN vs. Thronus Sound System Theoretical adviser: Bojana Kunst # produced by Intima Virtual Base - Institute for Contemporary Arts, Slovenia, November 2007 / in collaboration with BeitThroN vs. Thronus Sound System, Ljubljana; and - Microwave International New Media Arts Festival, Hong Kong - Tele-Plateau Hellerau - CYNETart, TMA, Dresden Very special thanks to Johannes Birringer, Thomas Dumke, Nora Ng, Klaus Nicolai, Ellen Pau, Irena Pivka, Diane To and Wilson Yeung.
