a sort offstage solo
"It’s already getting dark and Homo Technologicus is wandering through images of Brussels on the morning of the terrorist attacks in the airport and Metro. Images of Molenbeek, his neighbourhood. Images of people and of our time. Homo Technologicus has a restricted vocabulary of words (mainly “OK Google”), yet his mobile cyborg outfit can project & record images, video, sound, lights and physical movement. He is the character, the performer, the technician, citizen, a young adult and reflexion of his audience. He is alone and what he lives on stage doesn’t make sense in a linear way: What relation could there be between technology, terrorism, arab music, self-reflection, and dance? Homo Technologicus is not there to make sense out of it all, nor to be liked or disliked. An ethological* view on the animal in it’s own cage. The question, of what it implies to us, to be there looking at this mess."
In 2016 Leif Firnhaber creates his first solo work: [20YTU] This improvisational work combines photography, video and dance and opens a debate around technology, ecology and terrorism. It has been performed again in the Instituto Cultural Paraguayo-Alemán of Asunción (Paraguay) in the context of different photographical installations.
