Wild Card presentation "Drifting Towards Non-Existence" by Julia Danzinger
What is a body in a system where true situations have no meaning? An advancement to Julia’s Werkstück residency at Tanzquartier Vienna (2013), Drifting Towards Non-Existence deals with personal representation in the digital and the real world in different settings. Inspired by the physical identity of the Hikikomori — people who, by isolating themselves, remain present only in the digital world — this performance explores the lost and rediscovered notions of skin limitations.
Julia Danziger was born in 1981 in Vienna in a musician context and graduated with a University Diploma of Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2010.
