TodaysArt: A 72-hour audiovisual spectacle

This year’s festival is going to be a 72-hour audiovisual spectacle, bringing visitors into an artworld made of lasers, moving objects, code, light and images, touching on our current relationship with technology. The cutting edge artworks and installations at this year's TodaysArt festival programme are mind-blowing.

Here are some of them:

Circuit Fulldome Tour

The Fulldome is a 360-degree dome measuring about 14 meters in diameter, full of live visuals. Created by the Society for Arts and Technology (SAT) from Montreal, the dome hosts five shows by five different line-ups.

Manufactory

This intriguing installation, Manufactory, is like a multi-layered factory floor in which the audience experience new meanings from repetitive elements of choreography, live video, dance, music and physical theatre telling an abstract story of manufacturing, from early craft workers to the modern-day factory. This is brought to you by Transforma and Sascha Ring (Apparat).

cellF

The world’s very first neural analogue synthesiser is presented in this biotechnological work cellF, by Guy Ben-Ary, Nathan Thompson, Andrew Fitch and Darren Moore.

Les Terristoires Ephemeres

This audiovisual performance by Russian DJ Dasha Rush breaks new ground in contemporary art. Les Terristoires Ephemeres involves a collaboration with dancer/performer Valentin Tszin and visual artist Stanislav Glazov.

MYRIAD

Exploring film tropes, abstract culture, game ephemera and internet esoterica, Oneohtrix Point Never presents MYRIAD, the concertscape intallaition, which has been given a five-star rating by the Guardian.

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis brings together classical and modern dance styles that twist and collide, by the Berlin-based DJ and producer Lotic and choreographer and dancer Roderick George.
