Interview with Johannes Birringer, part 1: New media, interactivity and performative arts

02/2/2011

During November and December the Centre for Drama Art aka cdu based in Zagreb organized a series of lectures and a workshop within the programme titled Cognitive of the Performative. The first guest in the series was Johannes Birringer who introduced his latest production Ukiyo on lecture titled Open Score: Performance Technology  that took place in net club Mama.

Johaness Birringer is an performance, video and new media choreographer. He is considered among experts as one the pioneers of media art in performative context. Birringer is the founder of the theatre company AlienNation Co., new media laboratory Interaktionslabor, and the wearable technology project DAP-Lab.

I would need an extra blog post just to name and list all of his projects, books, universities and departments  he was involved with during his career. Thus, I decided to make this interview as a full scan of his work and his current thoughts on what shall we do with interactivity in performing arts.
