Hacking the Body 2.0: Shutter Flutter / Feel Me
Thur 18 Feb 2016 7pm
Access Space, 3-7 Sidney St. Sheffield S1 4RG

£10 per person / £8 concession

An evening featuring two performances: Shutter Flutter and Feel Me, brought
to Access Space by Hacking the Body 2.0. Two interactive dance pieces,
exploring custom made wearable tech garments worn by performers.

Hacking the Body 2.0 is a performance project that explores the current
wearable technology fervour, where users’ intimate body data is collected
under the pretence of medical or fitness monitoring. The ethics of
corporate ownership of body data for consumerist agendas is rarely
discussed. The two pieces here are the results of questioning how personal
body data can demonstrate who we are as individuals. How does accessing
one’s own data enable them to perform their identity? How can we explore
these issues while enabling people access to their own data to interact
with, especially in performance context?

This performance event builds upon a long-standing collaboration between
the two lead artists and their previous Hacking the Body iterations
exploring these questions as a starting point. Previous versions of this
work have included participatory workshops in Australia (2013) and The
Science Museum in London (2014) and R&D work at University of Creative Arts
Epsom and Siobhan Davies Studios (April 2015).

Designers: Becky Stewart and Tara Boath Mooney
Dancers: Phoebe Brown and Tara Baker
Created and produced by: Camille Baker and Kate Sicchio
