Hello all: thanks, Doug, for sharing this new Resouce Guide with us, I am sure we are all benefitting from expansion of our information network and resources! We had a discussion about this, some while ago, and suggestions were made to use our own resources (given the international nature of this list) to maken sure we can (if this is desired) build resource platforms that connect all continents, perhaps also through a few strategic links on this list's webpage, links that provide information about events/performances,labs and conferences in Latin America, eastern Europe, the Asian countries, Australia/NZ and Africa. I was at a workshop this week (PACT, Essen) where in conversations with curator Galia Dimitrova from Sofia's Interspace Media Center (Bulgaria) I was made of aware of a number of very interesting projects that are happening there, and which we rarely hear about. info: www.i-space.org I add a couple of announcements of new works being shown in England and Germany: (1) -- performance: "Miss Mobile" by Emil Hrvatin, to take place on the 7th and 8th of October at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, UK as part of the programme presenting the latest projects by Slovenian artists in order to offer a cross section of recent cultural creativity in Slovenia. (http://www.uvi.gov.si/XLLMSlovenia). >>Miss Mobile is an interactive performance, during which a virtual community >>is formed together with the viewers and those who participate in the >>performance from a distance. The latter become central protagonists of the >>event, which problematizes modern construction of the media reality, based on >>exposing one's intimacy in public. Miss Mobile reveals how shows like Big >>Brother, Jerry Springer Show and Oprah Show vulgarize the notion of democracy >>by offering everyone their own 15 minutes of fame. These highly manipulative >>programs turn these totalitarian, panopticum-like situations into >>entertainment and mask the elements of control, which are inherently >>inscribed in highly developed modern societies. Miss Mobile is an event which >>combines the elements of talk shows, quizes, multimedia art and visual >>installations. It's a performance which turns the mechanisms of mass >>popularity shows and their manipulative effects upside down and inside out.>> The performance Miss Mobile is produced by Maska Ljubljana, Institute for publishing, production and education. (2) "PUUR" , by WIM VANDEKEYBUS / ULTIMA VEZ , October 6 - 9, PACT - Choreographic Center NRW, Essen, Germany >> Inspired by myths and stories about the killing of infants and innocents, Vandekeybus creates a timeless, fictional, yet universal story about living in isolation, the alienation of the outside world and about loss and the pain that it brings. Who is the saviour of our world? Who is the prophet today and what does he proclaim? Is the Messiah a hero or a coward? Innovatively combining video and film with the story that is being played out on stage, a dialogue between reality and the virtual evolves... (Premiere 27. May 2005, Singapore Arts Festival )>>. info: http://www.pact-zollverein.de/ I saw Vandekeybus's piece last night, it's 125 minutes long, and wipes you out, A fascinating dance/ film work. regards Johannes Birringer Sent: Fri 10/7/2005 1:34 AM To: dance-tech@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [dance-tech] New Dance and Technology Resource Guide I've just launched a new Dance and Technology Resource Guide with about 200 links: http://greatdance.com/danceblog/dancetechresource.php I'm sure there are many more resources to add. Once you take a look at the guide, please feel free to recommend new links, or edits to existing links.
