A dance mashup, a bastard pop collage stolen from 1000 different sources: In AUTOPLAY, the copy & paste button becomes the leitmotif. Every movement, every sound, every image is an “objet trouvé” taken from the World Wide Web. From contemporary choreography to the Harlem Shake, from the video game Fortnite to shampoo ads, from the selfie style on Instagram to the globally marketed pose of Michelangelo’s David – everything is recombined, reorganised and mixed. In AUTOPLAY, Moritz Ostruschnjak sends the audience into a space of hyperlinks that amalgamate into a picture of (digital) existence in the 21st century – utopia and consumerist terror, subculture and populism are always just a click away from each other.
Supported by the NATIONALES PERFORMANCE NETZ International Guest Performance Fund for Dance, which is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
