Digital Foyer
The Deutsche Oper am Rhein and the FFT Düsseldorf were guests at the MIREVI lab of the HSD. With both cultural partners we develop new digital concepts and fundamentals of collaboration. As part of the city’s public life, our goal is to carry on joint research focusing on digital transformation and innovative switching technology. The digital foyer is designed to serve as an interface between house and visitors as well as between institution and city. A digital room that extends the theatre and the opera. A gathering place. A window to the city.

is a rose
The work ‘is a rose’ was created by artist Charlotte Triebus in cooperation with the Mirevi Lab and is deals with the interspecies communication between a romantic surveillance state and the actor-network theory. It addresses topics such as agency of animate and inanimate objects and the possibly overcome dichotomy of nature and technology, thereby revealing an equality of agents in a performative framework. Can we concede that each of these agents is capable of a behavior coming close to action?

Spheres
Can performers, audience and technology interact with each other in a symbiotic manner? Charlotte Triebus has been working on answering this question for the past three years. With ‘Spheres’ (2020), the artist created a choreographic installation as an interface between intimacy, communication, and artificial intelligence. It enables two performers, up to twelve intelligent spheres, and the visitors to interact with as well as react to each other.
