The Net & the Butterfly – 26th Sept in Vienna

PANik 3 - Perfromance is DocumentationThe Net & the Butterfly is an allegorical cyberformance about the challenges of documenting live online performance, created and presented in UpStage by Francesco Buonaiuto, Helen Varley Jamieson and Vicki Smith.

Constructed from the digital traces of past cyberformances, it is simultaneously a performative presentation of documentation, and a performance in its own right – thus transforming conventional notions of the separation of “live performance” and “performance documentation”.

The Net and the Butterflywas performed at PANik 3 – Performance als Dokumentation in Vienna and online on September 26th at 8.30pm MET.
