Runtime: Approximately 30 minutes

Centered around technology, looping and real-time manipulation, 003_playback is a participatory movement exploration presented through a web-coded, live-streaming platform. Throughout the work, audience members vote to decide the sound, lighting and how the movement will be altered each round. The performers then respond to these real-time choices made by the online participants, via visual playback.

Drawing from video games and simulation theory, this interactive piece explores the many potential timelines we constantly navigate between and how each decision can have a ripple effect, constantly shifting the current reality. Framed as performance-as-research, 003_playback investigates how surveillance, control, and agency actively play with our human experience.


A performance link will be emailed to you 30 minutes prior to the show. It is highly recommended that you experience the show from a computer rather than a mobile device.

NOTE: 5% of all Found 2022 ticket sales, and 5% of all donations made to Common Ground Arts Society until July 10, will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society.

We find ourselves in Amiskwaciwâskahikan (ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ) on Treaty 6 territory, traditional lands of the Cree, Nakota, Blackfoot, Dene, Saulteaux, Metis, and other indigenous peoples who have made this place home long before we settled here. For thousands of years, people have gathered here to share in story, community, and creative exchange.

We find ourselves thankful: thankful to play a small part in that long-standing tradition, a tradition carried on the shoulders of so many creators, builders, dreamers, agitators, and makers who came before us, and who will come long after us.

We find ourselves inspired: inspired by an evolving community of artists who passionately spark the magic that manifests when we surrender ourselves to the long summer days of this northern place.

We find ourselves grateful: grateful to everyone who rallies around this tiny but mighty Festival — the artists, the volunteers, the staff, the audience, the board, the mentors, the partners and sponsors, the funders, the believers. Found Festival exists because of you.
