The Silver Farms
~ Dance-Theatre Performance
@ Silent Green Kulturquartier, Berlin
Presented in October 2018, The Silver Farms is an augmented dance-theatre piece looking at the topic of Artificial Intelligence and religion through the devising of hybrid rituals, questioning the need for words while calling for a resurrection of the body as an expressionist tool.
“[...] in iron houses humans bred machines whose tasks were simple and multiple, repetitive and iterative. Time elapsed, and in the silver farms a new form of consciousness began to hatch and dispatch, to strive and drive, to author and monitor.”
— First poem ever written by a neural network.
