We invite you to experiment, perform, express, make/un-make thingsdance, move, present, sing, rap, read, or just stand still and tell us about your digital project or work - but without using anything digital! Anything goes as long as it is about or related to digital technology, 1 to 10 minutes in duration and happening on some sort of platform. You can use the wooden platform provided (65x95cm) or make your own.

OPEN PLATFORM_8/RAP(s) - TwT.algomech is open to anyone interested in re-thinking the digital. 'Technology without Technology' (TwT) performances are a creative, playfully serious strategy to negotiate the 'unknowable' of digital technology and the constant information overload in our contemporary world.

OPEN PLATFORM/RAP(s) - TwT.  is a micro event series that explores the digital with physical means by asking performers to present digital work without using anything digital. Five performers take up the challenge of re-thinking the digital with free interpretations that are 1 to 10 minutes in duration, about or related to digital technology and happening on some sort of platformOPEN PLATFORM/RAP(s) - TwT. originated at Access space in 2012 and is curated by Susanne Palzer.

AlgoMech Festival seeks to examine the complex relationship between technology, art and performance. The first edition in 2016 celebrated the resurgence of making in performance, this year we will contemplate an underlying theme of unmaking.
