A transmedia performance in 4 chapters

C\:>how2become (data) & dissolve_into: ‘tears’

In C\:>how2become (data) & dissolve_into: ‘tears’ performance and performativity migrate from the physical space into the virtual realm. The performers’ bodies and theatrical space itself are dematerialized and originate new digital interactions and non-anthropomorphic possibilities of representation. Following transmedia premises, the narrative is divided into four chapters, each corresponding to a different medium.

Audience members that purchase a ticket during this period will receive the first chapter of this performative event in book format.

Chapter 2 – January 4th to 9th between 2PM and 10PM at TBA

The third chapter happens on stage in the Main Auditorium of TBA.
