In Devolution欧洲杯怎么买球, Garry Stewart collaborated with Canadian roboticist Louis-Philippe Demers, UK video artist Gina Czarnecki and London-based costume designer Georg Meyer-Wiel to create a startling and utterly unique world.
Situating humans in communion with 30 robotic machines and prosthetics, Devolution explores the relationship between robotic and human performers within an artificial ecosystem. Imbued with ritualised processes, Devolution欧洲杯怎么买球 explores mutualism, territoriality, parasitism, predation, symbiosis and senescence to suggest that in the midst of technology, we remain subject to the imperative and irrepressible instincts of the flesh.
Devolution was assisted by the Arts SA Major Commission Program and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, through the New Australian Stories Initiative and its Major Festivals Initiative in association with the Confederation of Australian International Arts Festivals Incorporated, the Adelaide Bank Festival of Arts and Sydney Festival.
This performance we are streaming was recorded in 2007 at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
