Seismic Touch

The choreographer and the DJ invite to a dance floor where bodies recharge their batteries and research energy transmission despite keeping a distance. At the centre is the concept of Energetic Icons developed by Doris – an archaeology of energy that leads to individual and collective forms of energetic dance.

Boris Kopeinig is an electronic media artist and DJ, working in the areas of techno, electronic music, video and internet art. His DJ sets are driven by technoid rhythms and synthetic frequencies, exploring zones of sound experimentation and dance floor celebration. For him electronic dance music is a futuristic take on ancient rituals that affect the consistency of body and perception.
