Freeroam à Rebours Mod#I.1


Videoinstallation von Stefan Panhans mit Musik von Kirsten Reese

»Freeroam À Rebours, Mod#I.1« takes as its point of departure various shortcomings in the behavior of videogame avatars controlled by human players. These ›failure scenarios‹ are transposed onto the bodies of real performers, and recreated in the medium of film.
At the interface between experimental film, videoclip, performance and contemporary dance, Panhans’ film reworks these ›mistakes‹. It shows dancers and actors who have analyzed and rehearsed the flaws in the algorithmic patterns of avatar movements, caused by the moments of uncertainty or lack of concentration in the people controlling them. The performers ›reenact‹ these mistakes against backdrops and scenery borrowed from videogames, interspersed with sequences from the games. The camerawork closely echoes the ›camera‹ movements typical of videogames, and the performers interact with both their environment and the camera operators, whose movements form part of the choreography. The electronic music, was composed especially for the film, rtogether with the special montage editing techniques it gives this engaging choreography of failure an underlying rhythm. (Anne Greb, Videonale 16)
