Ai-Ai-Ai ! - 2018
A humorous performance about body and technology, Ages 6 years +
Technology is all around us, within us and between us. We love to play computer games, send snapchats and text messages, watch Youtube and to be on the internet – each on our individual screens. We are in contact with all of the world like this – but maybe we are not in contact with the persons who are right next to us – nor in contact with ourselves.
So, what do you do, when you would like to play with somebody, who prefers to play games on a screen instead of playing with you? When are you really together with somebody? And what if the person you spend time with is actually a machine?
In a physical and humorous way, Folmer, Ole and Antoinette investigate our world filled with screens, artificial intelligence and human presence.

About the music:
When composing the music for this performance, I ventured into Tchaikovski's Swan Lake-music, and composed , for instance, new melodies on the rhythms of very well know themes of his. I also sampled a couple of bars of a recording of his music, reverted the sample, and wrote new music on top of that.
