Europe is shutting up its borders, and in the surrounding areas, a new kind of choreography is emerging. Far from putting an end to migrational movements, the border closures are generating new movements. “TALOS”, a new solo work by Israeli choreographer Arkadi Zaides, investigates the future of borders. Its starting point is “TALOS”, an EU-funded technological project, a mobile robot system intended to detect and prevent illegal border crossings. With the help of interviews, film material and documents, Zaides and his interdisciplinary research team reflect on the consequences and the ethical issues around the “TALOS” initiative.
