Artistic seminar + workshops + performances
A cultural project running over several years (2013-2018) supported by the European Commission, "Metabody" brings together 28 partners from 16 countries, coordinated by Reverso (Spain). "Metabody" seeks to establish a critical stance towards the information society's tendency to make culture homogeneous, and proposes developing new technologies that would highlight differences in expression and communication by creating laboratories of multi-sensorial interaction on perception and movement. These results will be integrated into an experimental interactive/intra-active architectural structure (the MetaLab), giving substance to a social network proposing performances, installations, workshops, seminars, residencies and continuous research, before going on tour to nine European cities.
