Deep Fake is a choreographic space that exists in both our authentic and virtual realities. This space is inhabited by objects, humans, sounds and dances working with the concept of simulation. By approaching the body as an apparatus driven by impulses and emotions, Deep Fake investigates the collapsing borders between the living and the inorganic, the material and the immeaterial, with the structures that secretly (re)produce these binaries.
Shifting between extremes such as the role of a host or an absent body, the performer is accompanied by composer Márton Csernovszky’s sweet yet eerie, sensitive yet expansive music, and by a tender object called Grid.
Deep Fake challenges the monocracy of the solo format by gently directing the spectator’s attention to the decentralised performance of sound, light, and object, turning the space into a living and breathing entity. While dreaming about new possibilities of coexistence, Deep Fake is driven by the question: how can we allow the human gaze to become a little bit less anthropocentric?
Gergo D. Farkas (1996, they/them) is interested in choreographing spaces where humans, non-humans, material and immaterial are equally super welcome to dance. Their latest piece Deep Fake is currently on tour as a work of the international choreographic platform Aerowaves’s Twenty22 selection.
