We will be holding a workshop entitled Coding Performance: Algorithms & Rituals at Re:Publica 2018, during which we will run a short social experiment to explore the implications of instincts adapting to machines; of artificial intelligences becoming cultural artefacts; of algorithms monitoring the social computer. As a group, we will perform interactive exercises for ritualising human-machine collaboration, and devise a minimal compositional piece based on modern routines viewed from different vantage points



As our team is still in forming, REPLICA welcomes applications from interdisciplinary-minded artists, scientists and researchers from all fields. A strong interest in our core values and interests — imagining and rehearsing future rituals through performance techniques infused with machine learning logic — is, to us, more valuable than specific skills or aesthetics. So get in touch if you see a connection between our practice and yours, and let’s get talking.



A immersive performance, Searching for The Lighthouse explores human rituals devoted to coping with the enigmatic character of algorithmic logic. Using sound art, reactive devices and biosensors to augment physical theatre, it stages the hopeful search for an incantation able to appease forces of an artificial nature—signals once domestic gone feral.
The performance took place at Liebig12, Berlin.



REPLICA’s operations have launched with a first workshop with co-hosted by Joana Chicau and Diana Neranti. Our guest for the weekend, Joana’s practice of live coded performances explores the interconnections between natural and programming languages. Diana’s input merges viewpoint techniques with reactive devices and fiction, creating a mental space to be explored through movement.
The workshop took place at Kunstkooperative Kreuzberg.



A full day session bringing together experts in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Physical Theatre and Prototyping, REPLICA’S first public workshop invites participants of all backgrounds to explore how technology can further our understanding of the human body and mind, and to work with reactive devices and biometric sensors, in order to effect movement and devise future compositions.
Specific date and place to be announced.



REPLICA is a physical theatre platform to invent and rehearse future realities.

It welcomes performers, directors and scientists wishing to collaborate on imagining tomorrow’s rituals, to devise new interaction models for humans and technologies, and to prototype tools, cultures and rituals.

Behavioural data is gathered from algorithmically augmented workshops, during which various techniques and concepts are evaluated, and informs the devising of performances. It is also archived and made available for research purposes.

In a world of wearable technologies and digital colonisation, these anticipative explorations investigate the intelligence of moving bodies, new folklores and identities through algorithmic choreography. Which systems of values are we embedding into our machines?
