Adham Hafez / HaRaKa Platform


Part of “Spirits, Jinns & Avatars”


English /  approx. 90 mins.

In ancient Egypt and Greece, the symbol of the serpent eating its own tail played an important role in magic, Gnosticism, and Alchemy. 4000 years later, the “ouroboros” also became a founding notion in Cybernetics and making it all the way in blockchain infrastructures. Created through conversations with the AI-powered responsive technology ChatGPT, Adham Hafez composed this text, visual and sound score reflecting on the future of rituals and performance in a world of AI.

This event can be combined with “TARAB” by Ulduz Ahmadzadeh / عطش ATASH عطش contemporary dance company on 12.3.
