Wubkje Kuindersma & Anthony Fiumara
About the pixelization of the world.
“Remember that name”, wrote de Volkskrant early this year after her choreography for the Junior Company of the Dutch National Ballet. For her first full-length creation this top talent will engage in an exciting partnership with Anthony Fiumara. The point of departure for Bitcrusher is the pixelization of the world: Digital reality is taking increasing precedence over analogue reality. More and more information is lost in the translation from reality to building blocks of pixels. The more you crush, the more information you lose and the more artefacts seem to appear. When do the points form a coherent whole and when do they disintegrate into noise? How does our analogue body and soul relate to their bit-crushed equal? With an eager interaction between dance and music, Kuindersma and Fiumara go in search of answers.
