Cyborg DNA
UK, 2023

Directed by
Robin Nimanong
Running time
60 mins

Cyborg DNA is a hypnotic and hypersensitive futuristic queer performance installation blending digital art, synthesised music and contemporary dance. A boundary-breaking collaboration between dance artist and creative producer Robin Nimanong and digital artist Luxnautilus, this new cross-disciplinary work was inspired in part by Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto. Her influential 1985 essay explores how language evolves, and envisions a future that embraces the complexity of the body and technology. Nimanong and company likewise envision a time of transhumanism and transformation, when the focus on race, gender and ethnicity shifts into new parameters that promote fresh planes of understanding. Nominated for the DNA NEXT! Incentive Award 2022, Cyborg DNA is an open invitation to come see, taste and succumb to a place of infinite possibility.
