a report on an experimental new media collaboration between rome & kolkata – ultracorpi nomadic identity : a project for performance art tv by francesca fini

Here is the report of Ultracorpi Nomadic Identity : a project for performance art TV by Francesca Fini with Culture Monks. This is a project for live interaction across borders ( Rome & Kolkata) which was streamed live on facebook live TV.

“Ultracorpi” (Ultra-bodies) is a performance on male and female identity, but also simply on the identity of the actor, as the bearer of a “repertoire of lives” that are not re-cited, as Carmelo Well would say – because to re-cite is to cite someone else – but deeply lived on their own skin. The performer is an ultra-body, a fluid, elusive identity, always nomadic and migrant.

The Ultracorpi performance took place in the significant frame of the MAAM Museum in Rome, involving the use of Facebook Live technology and live streaming in VR (Virtual Reality) thanks to a special 360° camcorder.

The audience then had the possibility of watching the performance choosing a personal angle and point of view, creating a personal “editing”, in a revolutionary reversal of the relationship between the spectator and the show.

The Live performance was augmented by a live music feed from Kolkata by Varun Desai (synths) & Pradip Chattopadhyay (flute)
