Bryana Fritz

Submission submission


A performative collage of music, ASCII art and medieval literature in which a new balance is sought between body and computer screen.

On a big screen and before a live audience, Bryana Fritz snips up heavy philosophical texts until they suddenly become light and readable. By combining them with snippets of medieval literature, music and ASCII art – images made up of digital characters – the artist creates a performative collage in protest of her digital cage. Slowly but surely, Fritz achieves a new balance between her body and the screen.

Bryana Fritz was born in Chicago and has studied dance in Minneapolis (US), Essen (DE) and with P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. She’s since lived and worked here as a dancer, performance-maker and poet. In 2017 she performed ‘Indispensible Blue’ at Beursschouwburg, another poetic quest combining choreography and the theme of our digital world. With her new performance, Fritz further pursues her romance with dance, poetry and the digital screen.
