EMAP presents "Faster than light" in Athens


"We built a queer spaceship. We are returning home."  Kentaro Kumanomido and Thomas Anthony Owen, first artists in residence of the EMAP/EMARE platform at the Onassis Cultural Centre-Athens, invite us on a performative journey along the margins of consciousness. #fasterthanlight is an intermedia project focused on the intersections of technology, identity, consciousness, trauma, and survival. We'll pick up shards of fragmented code belonging to a mythical operating system whose name has been long-forgotten. We'll brew a pot of something strange, in order to entice, through scent, this memory of our remembering. Lately the wind has been heard whispering a string of letters sounding something like “freeeeedoommmm”.

27-28.6.2018 | Upper Stage at 18:30
Free admission with entrance tickets, on a first come first served basis*.
Prebooking: infotickets@sgt.gr
 *The distribution of entrance tickets begins 1 hour before the performance

Kentaro Kumanomido and Thomas Anthony Owen are improvisational choreographers based in Europe. Together, they form the core of electric shepherds (est. 2015), an art-as-research collaboration focused on creating femme-forward contexts for radical queer embodiment, new media practices, and quasi-mystical encounters.  The European Media Art Platform - EMAP provides up-and-coming media artists working in the visual arts, design, film, music and sound with the chance to participate in residencies and to create new works to be presented at festivals and other events in partner-countries. The platform's members are: Werkleitz Gesellschaft Centre for Media Art (Germany), Onassis Cultural Centre - Athens (Greece), Ars Electronica Center (Austria), Bandits Mages (France), FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) (UK), Impakt (Netherlands), KONTEJNER | biro suvremene umjetničke prakse (Croatia), LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial (Spain), M-cult (Finland), RIXC Center for New Media Culture (Latvia), Centrum Sztuki WRO / WRO Art Center for Media Art Foundation (Poland).  EMAP is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
