BREATH IN A PHYSICAL RESOLUTION

2024

Emio Greco | Pieter C Scholten - Nxt Museum

Inspired by the constant evolution of technologies such as AI, ICK Dans Amsterdam embarks on an artistic expedition through the exhibition Life in a Different Resolution by Random International, presented by Nxt Museum. 

The live performance Breath in a Physical Resolution a choreography by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten explores the complex relationship between the human body and emerging technologies within the context of dance and performance. ICK sees the continuous development of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, as an opportunity to redefine the significance of the body. This project aims to explore and challenge the boundaries between the intuitive human body and the impersonal digital world. Drawing inspiration from installations such as Life In Our Minds: Motherflock / III and Fifteen Pointsa dialogue is created that centers not on harmony, but on the contrast between human and machine, intuition and algorithm. 

Breath is used as a metaphor for life itself, navigating through the mists of uncertainty and sudden illumination by technological breakthroughs. Highlighting the necessity of presenting a live dance performance in Nxt Museum, a bastion of digital art and technology, this dialogue becomes tangible. 

This initial collaboration between Nxt and ICK, between technology and body, will be playfully explored further in the coming years.
