Cats rule the Internet. An endless stream of images and videos, memes, vines and gifs, create the most viewed content online – even more than porn. Both digital cat content and robopets fill a void with the help of technology. Why do we hold such fascination with these domesticated felines? What do these binary creatures promise?
In her new collaboration with video artist Kilian Immervoll, Dagmar Dachauer initiates an interaction between these ancient pets, humans and robots. She confronts the organic body in the digital space, as she glides through different hybrid states with a hyper detailed and highly precise movement language. Hovering between humour and the uncanny valley, the wild and the domestic, the mystical and the postmodern, we are never really sure of what we are looking at in this performance.
Dachauer zooms in on the changing relationship between human and non-human beings. Immervoll will share the stage. Sound artist Manuel Riegler creates the soundscape. The result is a phantasmagorical show, combining dance, video, performance, sound and live music.
