In-Between algorithms (Life/Death)2


The topic is the interpretation of energy by performers, scientists and artists. A wide variety of events are included from Jackson Pollock's Ice Cream Love in the Age of Global Warming to In-Between Circus, Magic and Quantum Mechanics.

This is a multilocation event that will start at the Fields Institute (222 College Street) and will end at the Lobby of the Robert Gill Theatre, Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies (Koffler Student Service building, 214 College Street) Locations: • The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences • Court yard at the Fields Institute • Hallways of Bahen Centre, • Staircase in the Coffer Student Services Building • Lobby of the Robert Gill Theatre

Inspired by the law of conservation of energy that states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but only transformed, we will use modes of multi-disciplinary performance, which has at its heart the idea of transformation. We can think of various types of performance - artistic, scientific, daily-life, queer, and transitions between life and death - as a mode of operation that counters conventional ideas of fixed states in the material, spiritual and energy-driven universe in which we live, perform, transform. As artists and performers, we see this from a metaphorical and artistic perspective, taking our cues from current thought experiments in quantum mechanics and quantum computing where terms like superposition and entanglement play a vital role in understanding performing operations on data. We might call this creative approach a form of imaginative mathematics/physics, which has fascinated performing artist-scientists across cultures since pre-historic times. We are intrigued by the potential of scientific contributions and provocations offered by mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and computer scientists.

In this context we are also interested in indigenous, modern, post-modern and pre-modern concepts of performed energy matter, including but not limited to the Chinese idea of Qi, and their impact on current practices of critical making and thinking beyond disciplinary boundaries.
