In response to the global situation generated by the pandemic in 2020, the MUTEK International Network launched a new initiative called MUTEK Connect, interconnecting, bridging and sustaining the artistic and professional communities of its different venues.
From Montreal comes a program that mixes the musical shows of Guillaume Coutu Dumont and a powerful audiovisual show by Line Katcho.
The program will present the second episode of the JUMP CUT project, a web series of six streaming collaborations between international multidisciplinary artists. Conceived by Dana Gingras / Animals of Distinction as a way to survive and thrive in these times.
JUMP CUT #2 will feature Montreal artist Marie Davidson, Quebec video artist Sabrina Ratté and Montreal choreographer and dancer Dana Gingras. Treating the body as a living sculpture, the emphasis will be on capturing the minutiae of movement and transforming the human body into a virtual body through augmented reality techniques. This digital transformation process will then dialogue with sound to create an experimental audiovisual creation.
