As Europe shuts its borders, a new choreography emerges in the areas surrounding the continent. Far from putting an end to migration, the closing of the borders generates new movements. TALOS, a new solo work by Arkadi Zaides, explores the future of borders through a choreographic perspective. Zaides and his interdisciplinary research team collected interviews, film material, and documents that trace a namesake EU-funded border project that promoted a mobile robot system intended to detect and prevent illegal border crossings. TALOS, a political lecture-performance, applies the choreographic practice to reflect on the ethical issues and consequences around the initiative.
