BIO
Ursula Endlicher's work resides on the intersection of Internet, performance and multi-media installation. Since the mid 1990ies her practice has been bridging the gap between the World Wide Web and physical reality. She translates the social and structural components of the Web into choreography for performances, into installations, and objects. She just recently showed her new online data performance called "Light and Dark Networks" (2012), commissioned by The Whitney Museum for Artport, on Whitney.org. She has exhibited and performed her work internationally in venues such as ZERO1 Biennial in San Jose, the transmediale festival in Berlin; SIGGRAPH Asia, Japan; Jersey City Museum, NJ; Postmasters Gallery, New York; the Center for Performance Research, Brooklyn; and at the Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, Poland. Her net-art work has been commissioned by Turbulence, and by the Whitney Museum for artport; her Internet/theater work has been presented by the "Theater am Neumarkt" in Zürich, Switzerland. She participated in the Virtual Residency 2.0 at Location One, and was invited to several international Festivals on networked culture and performance. She recently gave a "Lightning Talk" at the LISA Conference at the Guggenheim Museum, NY. Her work is part of the ursula blickle's videoarchiv at the Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna, Austria, and the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art at Cornell University.
Her website is www.ursenal.net.

We would like to invite you to join us online today - or at the theater if you're in Zürich - to watch and join our sampling sessions of blog entries, developed projects during the week-long theater lab which are inspired by the blog, and the discussions and performances that will be staged via skype and re-enacted in theater space.

You can participate in the dramaturgy by typing into the shoutbox - as it will be spoken aloud into the theater space, by adding entries and tagging them - as they will change the display of the tag cloud on stage, and by commenting or adding posts into the blog - as it will trigger additional improvised performances, discussions and other projects.

Watch the stream to follow the seven hour event and participate in its flow!

April 4+5 Two more Website Impersonations performances to go!


Dates:
Fri Apr 04, 2008 00:00 - Fri Apr 04, 2008

You are invited to dance html with me this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday during three new "Website Impersonations" Performances at the Performance Mix Festival at LMCC's Swing Space@Seaport in New York (210 Front Street corner Beekman).

Schedule:
“Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #10 - www.orkut.com” (April 3, 5:30 PM sharp)
“Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #7 - www.msn.com” (April 4, 5:30 PM sharp)
“Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited #1 - www.yahoo.com” (April 5, 5:30 PM sharp)

Website Impersonations: The Ten Most Visited (2006-2008) is a live performance series, which utilizes Web code as choreography. In these performances I am embodying the "character" of a Website - this time I have a cast of performers joining me! - and perform its html code, which is fed in from the Web "on the fly". During each of the performances the source code of the website is immediately translated into ongoing movement instructions, representing different html tags. These instructions derive from the html-movement-library, an online database of user-submitted movement suggestions, and from other parts of the html language. The sound accompanying the performance is another translation of the code - it is interpreted as a musical score. The audience on location is invited to participate in the html dance.

OPPORTUNITY

Taboo Theater 2.0


Deadline:
Sat May 24, 2008 00:00

Taboo Theater 2.0

What: Blog and Internet/Theater project

When: Online participation starts NOW; Theater project on location: May 19-24, 2008.

Where: Online and at Theater am Neumarkt in Zürich/Switzerland

How: ONLINE PARTICIPATION!!

Taboo Theater 2.0 is an Internet/Theater project by Ursula Endlicher, Ela Kagel and Anke Zimmermann, focusing on the question: How much taboo does art need?

Historically it seems that theater has always embraced topics regarding the breaking or rethinking of ethical values in its society. What will a theater-production face when inviting a global society with diverse approaches towards art, culture, and societal habits, to participate in it?

In the blog section of this piece we are inviting everyone to submit images, sound files, texts, videos or comments on taboos in art, theater, literature, or on the Web, which will then be part of a week-long theater production at Theater am Neumarkt/Chorgasse in Zürich from May 19-24, 2008. The Internet is our global stage and we are hoping that via the blog many different points of view will be conveyed, as they will co-determine the outcome of the piece. The structure and functionality of the blog will be translated onto the theater stage, where the collected content will be further worked on.
