<-- Teatrise on Search Queries & Other Forms of Moving --> is a live coding performance in online environments driven by choreographic scores -- bringing new meanings and producing new imaginaries around the acts of coding.
Joana Chicau creates hybrid scores/scripts that link post-modern and contemporary choreography with web-coding functions. This technique follows the concept of esoteric programming languages, which integrate a new grammar into an existing one when writing software. These functions, are named after choreographic concepts, which are assigned to specific web actions. By fusing methods from the sphere of choreography with the performativity of code -- her work reflects on how conditions change through affective interface foldings of bodies, subjectivities and technologies.
