Digital Tool & Health Utopia
Register here until October 13, 2021.
Hendrik mit K is a shifter between worlds – in PANZOOMIME, the art figure invites the audience to a place called “Anibody”. On the threshold between the digital and the analogue spaces, the healthy and sick avatars can no longer be distinguished from one another; utopian spaces emerge in which the glitch, this brief moment of disruption, becomes a matter of course and queers the boundaries between reality and fiction.
For PANZOOMIME Hendrik with K migrates from Instagram @dancerwithcancer to TikTok @panzoomime, from the theatre to the Volkshochschule to Mozilla Hubs. Here, a digital tool for disembodied experience of illness is created. In a specially created digital performance space, audience and performer meet as avatars. These digital interactions involve pitfalls that no longer know right or wrong. In PANZOOMIME, Hendrik mit K questions the social codes of social media and searches for a new digital label in the interface of Mozilla Hubs.
Following the performance, Hendrik mit K will talk with exclusive digital guests from medicine, the pharmaceutical industry and influcancer activism. From their expertise, they talk to Hendrik with K about quality of life, cancerfaker and medicine 4.0.
