In computer language, a glitch means a fault or brief interruption in
a system’s operational flow. This dysfunction in the reading of a file produces visual or sound accidents, aesthetic aberrations. “It’s the primal scream of data” as glitch art theorist Rosa Menkman puts it. It’s not surprising that the phenomenon has appealed to Florencia Demestri and Samuel Lefeuvre,
two choreographers who place the notion of strangeness at the heart of their work. Since 2012, they have been creating hybrid pieces together using non-linear narrative processes that leave considerable scope for games of meaning and intense physicality. Now omnipresent technology, but cinema and video games too feed our imagination and change our perception of reality. The two artists draw inspiration from these influences and use glitch artists’ tools to undertake new research: how, beyond a possible resolution, can we move towards the unforeseeable, the accidental, the unexpected? GLITCH: hyper-real, futuristic, organic and synthetic dance.
