TEN is a marathon of performance art inspired by the guardian god of digital culture, understood as art and not as “artifice”, that is an end in itself.
All the performances on the program are conceptually and visually linked to a precise common denominator: a synthetic-anesthetic mix in which the machine and the body are indissolubly blended.
The artists chosen have behind them years of experimentation and research in the field of performance art, or else come from the avant-garde of the performing media. They express themselves with the most disparate instruments and language but are open to amazing contaminations: cyberpunk culture, street dance, augmented reality, bondage art, interactive installations, extreme body art, video-art and contemporary dance.
It all takes place in a surreal scenario where lo-tech and hi-tech are challenged to a duel without the need for 3D glasses, and the digital phantasmagoria is rigorously cooked in the family oven. After the performance, the music of the TWB (Trix & WARBEAR) DJ and the visions of the Infidel VJ will transform the dance floor into an entropic drift where everything is possible and everything is real.
TEN is inspired by the philosophy of the Bionica4Dummies, the work group founded by Francesca Fini, who proposes, through Art, a joyously retro and cyberpunk approach to the hyper-technological culture of our day. The aim is to create, through the creative process, the “magical illusion of technology”, with materials that are used daily or even recycled.
