"Bodyscan 223 offers a hyper-artificial mashup, by scanning invisible systems that are excluding society's misfits and gender-benders. Discussing Queer radical freedom through a provocative yet vulnerable process, continuously evolving and transforming."

Bodyscan 223
“A Misfit Cyberpunk Act.”
Bodyscan 223 is a media dance event, scanning our conflicted ideas about technology, accessibility and queer identity. The dancers present their queer bodies as testimonies against errored structures of society.

The audience scans their own experience through the non-conforming performers. Together they will enter a futuristic cyberpunk experience. Artificial Intelligence and big data are increasing inequality and threatening democracy. What if algorithms will control your lifepath? Will credits control our emotions?

There has been more and more online safe queer spaces popping up online. But when are they real? The dancers will discover the current reality in this queer hybrid research.

Pre-conceptions
Billion credit fantasies
High-tech surveillance

BODYSCAN 223 SCANS AND QUESTION OUR CONFLICTING IDEAS ABOUT TECHNOLOGY AND QUEER IDENTITY.

TWO TWO THREE or 2-2-3 explains how we are moving from male and female ( 2 ) to a new era ( 3 ). Technology explains the norm. But there is a new fluid area to discover, which goes in between and beyond. Discussing paradigms and stereotypes. Feeling disidentified and noticing misidentification. Trying to overcome a succession of errors from the normative and delusional. Together we go into unfamiliar and hopefully new effective attitudes, with an effort to understand one another better.
