GINGER ENSEMBLE for
PERFORMANCE INTERACTIVE LIVE STREAM FESTIVAL
In countless meetings in virtuality, through live streamings of cultural life and in disembodied company, we become aware of the limitations of digital tools. A one-to-one digital replication of a social, face-to-face dialogue is not possible without losing something in the process. In search of the unmediated aesthetics of digital tools, the GingerEnsemble is developing a series of short performative pieces that playfully deal with the use of current digital communication media such as smartphones, computers, laptops and related software.These "virtual coughs" are formed in the interplay between physical presence and digital gathering, between artificial intelligence and natural stupidity as well as between scheduled acumen and unsolicited connection loss.
