Filmscreening and Talk: "Hyper-Human"
Stefan Panhans’s Freeroam À Rebours, Mod # I.1 (2016) shows computer game avatar “glitches” as translated by real bodies: displacement activities, idle modes, repetition of humanoid movements and gestures. In a society marked by economization, such “errors” are usually understood as a sign of inefficiency and incompetence. But this is precisely where Panhans gets to work – at the interface between film clip, performance and contemporary dance forms.
