Kjell Theøry by ATOM-r
LIVE STREAM LINK FOR SATURDAY: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdQz7i4Rh1o&feature=youtu.be

Kjell Theøry explores Alan Turings mathematical descriptions of nature in conjunction with theprologue from the first surrealist play, The Breasts of Tiresias (1917), a genderbending spectacle of male reproduction. ATOM-r uses technologies of mixed and augmented reality to create a queer neopagan fertility ritual staged as a liminal theatre between physical and virtual worlds.

Anatomical Theatres of Mixed Reality (ATOM-r) is a provisional collective exploring forensics, anatomy, and 21st century embodiment through performance, language and emerging technologies. The work is collaboratively generated by core members Mark Jeffery (choreography), Judd Morrissey (writing & technology), Justin Deschamps, Leonardo Kaplan and Christopher Knowlton (performers).

ATOM-r was conceived in response to the historical architecture of anatomical theatres, spaces designed for viewing of human dissections and early surgical procedures. This is used as a symbol to explore histories and experiences of the body, sexuality, and prosthesis.
