We increasingly perceive the human body as a body of data. Movements, emotions and states are measured and quantified. At the same time, this data is becoming the mirror in which we see our bodies reflected. Until recently, people were the analogue gap in the digital world, but with our active help this gap is visibly closing. More and more of us are using “life tracking” to analyse their bodies at every opportunity and to communicate in social networks or interpret other people’s feelings using smartphone apps.
In their performance “The Hairs Of Your Head Are Numbered”, the Berlin digital arts group doublelucky productions, led by Christiane Kühl and Chris Kondek, turns the body into the stage. By means of complex technologies reprogrammed for the theatre situation, the body’s needs and deficiencies are made tangible using digital amplification. At the same time, the potential of manipulating such technologies becomes visible. With this co-production, the Münchner Kammerspiele continues its study of digitality and artificial intelligence, and their significance for the performing arts.
