For Performa 09, the Italian collective Alterazioni Video and Ragnar Kjartansson present Symphony n.1, a live and multimedia piece based on joy, infinite profound joy. With the structure of a symphony it is a set of actions repeated in loops mixed chaos, synchronicity and digital found material on one hand, and the theatricality and endurance aspect of performance on the other.
A “variety theatre”, to quote the infamous 1913 Futurist Manifesto, marrying art, technology and live feed. “Our plan”, the artists say, “is to do a pretty long, crazy, frenzied performance with stunts of sincere joy. We are planning to dig into some Dionysian energy through flamboyance and smiles”.
