I got earlier today _1minute69_‘s video clip from their latest performance B0DYSC4PES, presented few days ago at the LMP – Live Performers Meeting in Rome, that gathers live video performers, visual artists and VJs.
_1minute69_ is ‘an artist collective created by french digital media enthusiasts who share ideas and approaches on collaborative works. Bound by a common will to give the audience a playful experience through immersive and/or interactive universes, the collective artists develop pieces based on the grounds of illusion and representation, in the forms of performances, audiovisual installations, architectural projections and video stage designs.’

This is the second part of the interview with Johannes Birringer. Read the first part here: Interview with Johannes Birringer, part 1 – New media, interactivity and performative arts
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.
