About Start Operation Systems (S.O.S):
S.O.S aims to bring together online and onsite performers and audiences by taking advantage of the Internet and creating a sense of community using cooperation in order to explore means of communication between remote places while using different media.
During the devised process we explore different connections in different media. The first challenge is to bridge the onsite performative language with the performative language online. Mediating 3D space into a 2D image that moves in a 2D world and vice versa.
S.O.S uses TAP (online performance application, which was developed by Suzon Fuks during a fellowship in Australia; water-wheel.net). The rehearsal process introduced performers and theatre makers in London to the TAP and challenged them to work with it and discover different interactions and connections with multi-national performers in worldwide locations.
The project is initiated and lead by Hedva Eltanani, a performance practitioner and the founder of Steer, a method and tools provider for performance making.
