kondition pluriel is an interdisciplinary digital performance group founded by Marie-Claude Poulin and Martin Kusch in 2000. Integrating dance and digital arts, the artists generate a language outside of established disciplines, focusing as much on the process as the artistic product. They create groundbreaking, exceptional experiences at the intersection of installation and live performance, where audience members are frequently invited to share the stage with performers. Using a wide range of cutting-edge tech tools, the group has created ambulatory installations in which dancing bodies interact with real-time media, telematic experiences for one spectator, immersive performances including culinary tastings, and urban performances integrating GPS guides. Predominant themes in their works are the transformation and disembodiment of the mediatized body, the loneliness and voyeurism that stems from the phenomenon of reality TV, the paranoia brought on by hyper-surveillance in our societies, and the sensory exacerbation engendered by technologies today.
