Swarms, droning and collective contemplation by and for cyborgs in crisis.


You turn your back to the world and step into a sounding space. You look around. Someone comes up to you with a proposal. You accept. The withdrawal accelerates. You connect to different games, systems and bodies. You explore and produce new tactics. You are droning. You join the swarm. You disconnect. You rest your way into an action. You install a political paradigm. There is a shift of paradigm. You identify, reinforce and modify your strategies for survival. They are now no longer about survival, but about surpassing what you are trying to cope with. You look back at the world from the other side of the black mirror. You touch the screen.

Nyxxx is invited by the street festival Calle Libre to do Tactical meditations in Vienna. The Swedish performing arts collective Nyxxx makes works that the audience experience by participating. In Vienna we host Tactical Meditations in partnership with the artist Vitória Monteiro. The work has previously been shown in Stockholm, Malmö and Copenhagen.

The performance is free and no pre-booking is neccesary. It opens at 4 pm, but you come and go when you want to.
