The cryptodance is a performative event to familiarize ourselves with different modes of encryption. Whilst collectively embodying issues of security, privacy, safety and surveillance, we converge a technopolitical urgency for sovereignty and a desire for affinities with the body /machine~ living organisms/algorithms.
Cryptodance is developed, in august during the preparations of THF 2016! by an international small constellation of choreographers, hackers, dancers, .... They met, discussed and wrote a choreography combining dance annotations, crypto technics and careful somatic tactics.
Goldjian and bolwerK started plotting the Cryptodance project during a Ministry of Hacking (Esc, Gratz, Austria), where they formed joint(ad)venture of the department of Waves and Shadow and The Department of Care and Wonder.
