AI will eventually surpass the human brain but getting jokes ... that could take time. (Geoffrey Hinton)
Exploring A/I Artistic Intelligence
Irony is about contradictions that do not resolve into larger wholes, even dialectically, about the tension of holding incompatible things together because both or all are necessary and true. Irony is about humour and serious play. It is also a rhetorical strategy and a political method,
one I would like to see more honoured within socialist-feminism. (Donna Haraway)

Taanteatro Companhia is celebrating its 30th anniversary. They have recently published a book entitled Choreographic Theatre of Tensions about their legacy and are currently organizing their Ecoperformance festival 2022.
We are curious to learn more about their work, how their artistic concepts and praxis evolved and where they want to go next. In particular we are interested in connections between human movement and non-human movement (nature and artificial machines), how they do the labor of learning resiliency, playfulness and courage and how they are moving to move (with) us. We are also curious about aesthetic politics of laughter and critique.
