Mystic-Informatic unexpectedly combines dance, mycology and digital technologies. At the root of the show’s concerns are a questioning of the meaning of dance in the context of the digital shift, a fascination with the enigmatic world of mushrooms, and a preoccupation with the environment and the waste produced by the constant renewal of technology. In a recent book by anthropologist Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, The Mushroom at the End of the World, we learn that the matsutake mushroom only grows in the ruins of capitalism. In these razed forests, these landscapes devastated by exploitation where no life was thought possible, this mushroom brings a glimmer of optimism. Mystic-Informatic uses the matsutake as a metaphor, proposing dance as a resilient force capable of breathing new life into technological waste.

Through dance and bodies, technology is diverted from its real primary functions, and we connect with it in a sensory, corporeal and imaginative way. In a punkish, apocalyptic and feminist spirit, Mystic-Informatic invites us to give power back to dance to exorcise our ecological despair.
