Folk dances transmit a heritage of disciplining the bodies by framing them into representations of cultural identities. As we are acknowledging complexities and hybrid identities in our contemporary world, shouldn’t we rethink and hybridise the former “dances of the people” as well? The artist talk with Irina Demina and creative team of "KLOF", moderated by Ana Letunić, gives an inside into the creative process of the piece, relations between choreography and technology, folk dances and machine learning. The aim of the talk is an open discussion with the audience.

About the venue

Dock 11

The factory level of Dock 11 in Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg is a rehearsals room, teaching studio and dance stage in one. The stage programme has interdisciplinary supplements such as theatre, performance, literature, music, visual art, film and club art – however the main focal point of every performance is on purely dance elements. Together with its other premises in EDEN***** in Berlin-Pankow, Dock 11 has established itself as an important part of the Berlin dance scene. The unique combination of teaching, rehearsal and stage generates an exciting change of perspectives in both the artists and pupils, as well as among the audience.  (source: visitberlin.de)

About the Performance

KLOF. cyberographies of folk

Two dancing bodies on stage. One is a living machine – a human body. The other a programmed machine – an artificial intelligence.Both were trained in folk dances. One five years at the academic dance institution. The other one is a machine learning algorithm that has learned dozens of folk dances from around the world, and has been trained to choreo(cybero)graph synthetized “folk” dances on its own.
Folk dances transmit a heritage of disciplining the bodies by framing them into representations of cultural identities. As we are acknowledging complexities and hybrid identities in our contemporary world, shouldn’t we rethink and hybridise the former “dances of the people” as well? Can artificial intelligence help us to de-hierarchize and reinvent these inherited bodily practices?
With this work, Irina Demina continues her exploration of tradition and technology, as already laid out in her last pieces AcT II (2020) and Perpetual Myth (2021).
