What if our future bodies would have developed additional extensions, special features and extra tools? How would this effect the way we move, relate, express and communicate in a posthuman world?

TECHNO FAUNA is a dance piece that speculates on the future of human existence, it’s transformation and adaptation. It explores the limits of the body, it’s archeology and the possibility to morph with it’s surroundings. 

In an abstract post-apocalyptic time where new beings reign, three figures navigate a realm of relations, developed tactics and power plays.

Desperate search for connection? Are we facing a utopian or a dystopian future destiny? 

The necessity to look into an altered world and the importance of touching these ideas, is not so much to answer the why, but rather to extend our imagination. It is an opportunity to look into different projections and scenarios. 

Liliana Barros has approached the subject matter in her previous works. Hence the focus here is on different ways of altering the body through the intersection of sculpture and Dance performance.

By creating images of new bodies and movements TECHNO FAUNA aims to signal and perhaps provoke our ideologies, ethics and aesthetics about who we are and where we are headed.
