TALOS

Arkadi Zaides & collaborators

What kind of choreography arises in the proximity of borders? Talos is a mythical bronze giant whose role was to protect Europa (mother of King Minos) in Crete from pirates and invaders. But Talos was also a research project funded by the EU to develop robots in order to guard Europe’s borders. While migrants and asylum seekers continue to flow, the EU is looking for new strategies to control and close its borders. For the gripping solo ArchiveArkadi Zaides used documentary material from the occupied territories. In TALOS he joins forces with an interdisciplinary team of choreographers, robotics experts and video makers to speculate about scenarios where people and autonomous border technologies are face to face. What are the ethical, political and human consequences of protocols that seem still not yet possible today?
