Chris Kondek & Christiane Kühl: Anonymous P.

The Arches & Behaviour 2015 present

Chris Kondek & Christiane Kühl: Anonymous P.

Wed 6 - Thu 7 May 2015 | 7pm (120 mins) | £15/£10 (Behaviour Festival Pass: £60/£53) (+£1.50 online-only TF) | 18+

Your phone knows where you are.
Google knows what you think.
Facebook knows who you are.
And PRISM knows everything.

The Arches is thrilled- and not a little bit nervous- to present the UK premiere of Chris Kondek (The Wooster Group) and Christiane Kühl’s latest work.

Anonymous P.- part performance, part installation- is a mash-up of intelligence agency practices, their affiliations with big business and our own willingness to broadcast intimate personal details online. The idea that our private lives are private really is the most wonderful fiction.

This spectacular theatrical experiment takes place away from the safety of the Studio Theatre and out in the main arch spaces, where the stage isn’t set until you and your smartphone arrive.

Your data is the star. During the show it will be interrogated, LIVE, by a team of performers and hackers- including regular Forced Entertainment collaborator Phil Hayes- and, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we’ll be taking network analysis to a whole new level.

New times call for new heroes.
Where once Prometheus stole the fire from the gods and gifted it to the people so that they might then liberate themselves, Anonymous P. steals data from the powers that be.
Their gift to us can be only one: Anonymity. Darkness is the new light.

Are you sitting comfortably? Then let’s log in…

This performance was made possible by our work with The Goethe Institut and Prohelvetia, who brought The Institute of Political Murder’s Hate Radio to BEHAVIOUR 2014.
