‘Transcranial’ at Scopitone Festival in Nantes / France (15 Sept ’15)


Taking place at the Scopitone Festival in Nantes / France on the 15th september 2015 (8:15 pm) is the latest iteration of CAN initiated Transcranial, an ambitious, collaborative performance project by Klaus Obermaier, Kyle McDonald and Daito Manabe, and co-produced by several festivals and organisations in Europe, including Resonate, STRP and KIKK. Preview performances took place at Resonate 2014, STRP 2015 and Resonate 2015.

Scientists use electromagnetic pulses to create glitches on brain activity by altering neuronal currents. Such glitches may cause temporary failures that can be represented by disassembling the body. As if this would be malfunctioning or out of control. Mind expression through body and body expression through mind. Transcranial explores these expressions of mind and body in an interactive performance where technology and human being play the embodied mind

Featuring: Barbara Vuzem and Ischa Havens
