TALK: At “Kulturtorget”, Trondheim main Library. Free admission
In Europe we are frantically closing down borders while waves of migrating fugitives are trying to find their way in. For every attempt to limit people from entering, migrants find new strategies to avoid being detected. This creates a new “choreography” of actions and responses, as people start behaving and moving in new and different ways in the proximity of borders.
Dancer and choreographer Arkadi Zaides has developed the performance TALOS as a response to an EU-funded research project, designing an advanced robotic system aimed at protecting European land borders in the future.
For this edition of “Teatersamtalen” (‘The Theatre Talk’), we invite a philosopher and an artificial intelligence (AI) expert to meet Zaides to discuss the interaction between human and machine, and the limitations and transgressions that occur as a result.
The performance TALOS is presented by Teaterhuset Avant Garden in Verkstedhallen at Svartlamoen, 4 and 5 May at 19:00. Read more about the performance here.
The panel consists of:
Arkadi Zaides, Israeli dancer and choreographer
Einar Duenger Bøhn, philosopher with ethics and AI as part of his specialty
Axel Tidemann: PhD in AI, works in Telenor Research.
Moderator for the talk, TBA
The talk will be held in English
Teatersamtalen is a collaboration between Trøndelag Teater, Teaterhuset Avant Garden, Turnéteatret i Trøndelag and Programme in Drama and Theatre Studies, Department of Art and Media Studies, NTNU.
The project is an intitiative to develop and heighten the quality of the critical discussion about theatre in the public field. The talks will address relevant political and artistic issues, and discuss if and how debatable topics from the theatre field could be the subject for a common, broader discussion in the region.
This is the second edition of Teatersamtalen. The first one took place at Litteraturhuset 4 April, and addressed the regional efforts, or lack thereof, for advancing the field of theatre for youths.
The talks are recorded and published as podcasts on Litteraturhuset i Trondheim’s website.
