NOVEMBER 3 PROGRAM
20:15 The Automated Sniper
21:30 Intermission 
22:15 Vibration

The Automated Sniper – Julian Hetzel (NL/DE)
The prize-winning participatory theater performance The Automated Sniper by Julian Hetzel (NL/DE) is a gripping work on the ethics of modern warfare at a distance, militainment, and the gamification of violence. It involves 3 performers, the audience, a Baghdad-based gamer/drone operator, and an internet-controlled sniper paintball gun.

Vibration - Rita Góbi (RS/HU) & Ryuji Yamaguchi (JP/JO)
Vibration is a physical poetry of the live body that explores attraction, repulsion, and irregular rhythms.

Also available to be seen during the performance event is a newly commissioned installation by Tivon Rice exploring Artificial Intelligence, 3D visualization, and algorithmic storytelling.

About the theme: Alien Bodies
With ALIEN BODIES, the festival wants to seek, confront and empathize with the alien, whether the alien is our environment, objects and matter, man-made technological aliens (robots, AIs) or alien human beings in places near or remote who have become the invisible or undecipherable other. We recognize that first and foremost the notion of the Alien is related to fear. From the ‘illegal aliens that invade our countries’ to our fear of robots and AI, this fear is deeply human. Modern Body Festival’s approach aims to overcome it.

Modern Body Festival is also already active between October 26-28; visitors can visit our free exhibition in the heart of downtown The Hague, at The Grey Space in the Middle.
