(sorry for any x-post)

Dear spectrers,

Fronte Vacuo <https://frontevacuo.com/>, the artist group I co-founded with
bioartist and performer Margherita Pevere and media designer Andrea
Familari, would like to invite you to experience our new durational
performance Humane Methods [∑XHALE], co-produced with Volkstheater Wien,
tanzhaus NRW and CTM/Club Transmediale Berlin. Please see the premiere and
tour dates below.

∑XHALE is the third chapter in our series Humane Methods. The series
reflects on the new forms of violence emerging in algorithmic societies due
to the combination of polarization, climate catastrophe and AI
megastructures. ∑XHALE is a 9 hour synaesthetic biome, consisting of 6
episodes for 6 human performers, 4 fungi, plants and 1 AI performer. Each
episode lasts 90 minutes and is based on the same loop which evolves
continuously, thus creating new micro-narratives every day. The piece is
drastically transdisciplinary and combines dance, theatre, interactive
music, body art, AI and biotechnological installation.

Fronte Vacuo

Marco Donnarumma, Margherita Pevere, and Andrea Familari founded Fronte
Vacuo in 2019 in Berlin. With a decade-long experience in defying
boundaries across art genres, they create hybrid live art events as social
experiments, where bodies, symbionts, sounds, AI machines, and images
interweave, coagulating into pulsing and tumultuous biomes. The group’s
ongoing project Humane Methods reflects on the myriad violences emerging
from the entanglement of human societies, natural ecosystems, and
algorithmic megastructures. Fronte’s body of work is created following
methods of shared and dynamic authorship; any member of the group may
direct or initiate a project and creative roles are shuffled around in
ever-changing ways.
