BRUMA / NET is an audio-visual poem, which is created live and can be seen by the audience online and live in front of festival audiences.
A networked performance where different disciplines are combined; dance, music, photography, video and literature. The video-poem will be created by artists who are connected from different places to compose in a shared digital space.
BRUMA / NET is a project that the intermedia dance company Kònic thtr designed and produced from their home in Barcelona, during the lockdown caused by COVID19 health emergency.
During the exceptional situation of isolation, Kònic’s Rosa Sánchez and Alain Baumann put at the service of the international artistic community their knowledge, technological tools and the infrastructure available at their domestic space.
Currently, the different editions of the project have residence at Fabra i Coats – Creative Factory, and have over 40 participating artists from Spain, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Germany, Italy and France.
This artistic composition proposes different formats for the audience:
Ethe audience can watch the performance live on internet, as it is been created by the artists. How? On the Facebook page Xanela.Tecnoescena.
One or more of the performers/musicians of BRUMA / NET are performing live in front of an audience. The public can watch the action live, and see the other performers through videocomposition projected on stage. The resulting performance is also live-streamed online.
The video-poem of the networked performance is recorded and stays available to the audience on Facebook Xanela.Tecnoescena
BRUMA / NET, hosted by Xanela.Tecnoescena – a platform created specifically by Kònic thtr to promote networked performance -, wishes to occupy the digital space with the live production of video-poems; audio-visual pieces that are recorded with the energy and thrill of the ‘live’. Aiming to create new cultural content and ensure its access to all audience through the web.
