Through the use of a wireless Brain-Computer Interface (electroencephalogram headband), participants are able to interact in real time with unique audiovisuals, using their own brain activity. This art-tech workshop mixes the physical and digital into an immersive "phygital" experience.

ELEMENTS has been designed to develop the potential we all hold for collective creativity. It engages on participants’ intuitive and rational ways of interconnecting, enhancing so their awareness for their bodies and the environment. At Griessmühle, we even will try out how brainwaves by clubbing perform!

How it works? After a warming up, participants learn basic elements of Contemporary Dance and improvisation. They are then fitted with the electroencephalogram headband, trying it out and training their brainwaves. They are split into teams to develop different situational scenes and immersive sensations - as for example, being into the element water. In this dynamic, participants get to interact and react to one another. At the end of the workshop, the different groups perform their creations, while generating visuals and sounds from their brainwaves and collective motion.

Where: Silo Griessmuehle
Duration: 6:30 - 9:30 pm
Participation: 22 Euros
Capacity: limited to 25. Reserve your spot: presseclectiqueberlin@gmail.com
