16 BIT

schwere reiter

“16 BIT” is a new contemporary dance production exploring the unique circumstances that allowed techno to become an artform and social phenomenon.

Emerging from a decades-deep transatlantic cultural exchange, techno has given voice and purpose to marginalised communities, incubated scientific experimentation and courted the avant-garde through technological and cultural revolutions. It’s an Afrofuturist expression for the Black community in Detroit, and it embodied liberation and reunification as the Berlin wall fell.

“16 BIT” absorbs these ideas and examines the evolution of techno from the ill-defined, DIY landscape of 1980s electronic music through to the globally recognised genre that heralded the early 90s. As a performance, 16 BIT expresses the inherent energy of techno’s progressive arc in movement, embodying the music’s physicality and the resulting motion of the collective as a committed, hypnotic body – a body weighted with meaning and charged with the power to change the world beyond the confines of the dancefloor.
