Conceptual artist miu develops a dance performance for sighted and visually impaired spectators alike. He conducted research on two communication systems that are, more or less, visible in the city: Telephone booths and Freifunk. Telephone booths satisfy a need to telephone while on the move, barely known to anyone in the age of smartphones. Freifunk is the offer to go online free of charge via a citizens’ network. “do white” asks how these communication systems shape different body images.

“do white” is the second instalment in the “Remixing Urban Infrastructure” trilogy. The series explores the prospects to reinterpret urban infrastructure. miu’s work looks at tangible user surfaces that organise urban communal living. It investigates participatory options within those systems and encourages the development of proprietary strategies of dealing with them. While the topics in “Bibliopark” (2021), the trilogy’s first part, were open bookshelves and libraries, it will be about telecommunication in the city this time.

The audio description integrated into the play enables access to the performances for a non-sighted audience. There will also be a guided feeling tour before each performance.
