In Talk2Me4D, Wayne Götz and Lucy Flournoy, both physical theatre performers, want to explore the possibilities and limitations of artificial intelligences such as GPT-3 and Amazon’s Alexa. Beside interacting with them on stage, they also create an immersive, fourth-dimensional, exquisitely entertaining version of the performance, that the public can experience with VR glasses. The project liberates new technologies from a dystopian imagery, reminding us that play is at the basis of every artistic experience.


Within the framework of tanz:digital II, the German Dance Film Institute Bremen is building a bridge between the motivation of the realising artists and the focused circle of users. In concrete terms, this means that “making ofs” are being created for around 10 individual projects, which prepare potential users, whether they are tech-savvy or not, for what to expect if they want to entrust themselves to one of the many new offerings.


Tanz:digital II is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media in the NEUSTART KULTUR programme, aid programme DIS-TANZEN of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland (umbrella organisation for dance in Germany).
