daniel mounsey’s performance “hacker” incarnates the central philosophical issues of the [post][post] modern age.
identity, free will, control.
an accomplished theatrical and butoh performer, daniel has appropriated one of stelarc’s devices which will assume control of part of his body by means of electrical stimulation. remote puppeteering if you will.
in appropriating and remixing stelarc’s technology, daniel is the hacker. but in surrendering control of his body to the sometime painful preprogrammed stimulation, he is being hacked. just who is hacking who here?
this is a special performance for one night only, on thursday november 24, at dancehouse, 150 princes street north carlton. call 9347 2860.
