Trampoline Berlin

Hebbel am Ufer | 01.11.06 | 6pm - 11pm

We are living in a reality where our physical environment has been pervaded by invisible streams of data, enabling our local geography to connect with remote spaces. This multitude of physical and virtual layers of existence challenges our sense of place and presence. A space is more than one space; the virtual has inextricably entered the realm of the real.

First Play Berlin is exploring the makeup of this mixed reality, asking how it has changed the way we perceive space and how we negotiate our cities.

The Context

This one-night Trampoline platform event forms part of the curated programme First Play Berlin taking place from 28 September to 21 October 2006.

First Play Berlin brings new international artworks and performances to Berlin that explore the city through intervention, participation and mapping. All works can be described as live media art, a new arts practice which the two fields of performance and new media are entering a dialogue. With this, traditional concepts of performance, installation or gaming are overcome offering the audience a participatory experience, blurring the distinction between performer and audience.

What we are looking for

Trampoline welcomes artists working with digital video, multimedia, performance, streaming, experimental sound, interactive journeys and installation to submit a piece of work that reflects on the notion of multiple space and connected city to exhibit or perform during the Trampoline night on 12 October. If you have a piece of work or any ideas which you would like to develop further we would very much like to hear from you.

Please note:

We will not be able to pay for artists' travel costs to Berlin but we will be able to transport the work.

Work which requires production budgets or extensive set-up times cannot be taken

Performances should be between 10-25 minutes

Single screen films should be no longer than 15 min
