»Be a Bird – be an excellent bird!

»We would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the fact that thinking will end with the sun’s death! While we talk, the sun is getting older. It will explode in 4.5 billion years.

EXCELLENT BIRDS is a choreography about designing a medium to save human body-intelligence. Before the sun’s explosion one has to create a body to transport movement-potential into the future: A bird-AI (Artificial-Itelligence) functions as a new form of body-memory. In EXCELLENT BIRDS we’re asking the question how bodies are produced on different virtual levels and media.

We sent a bird into space to explore how far we can go …
it didn’t come back!«
