HOW ARE YOU? #Sergina’s Participatory Soap Opera about Wrestling with Wellbeing in the Digital Age, 31.03.202020
In response to the COVID-19 emergency, in place of a physical installation at MARS Goldsmiths, #Sergina (plural) - presented an online digital re-jig of the 4 hour performance at ONCA HOW ARE YOU?: #Sergina’s Live Participatory Soap Opera about Wrestling with Wellbeing in the Digital Age to explore how ideas and experiences of wellbeing in the context of the digital may have shifted since then.
The performance took place over three acts and could accommodate 9 participants in the Zoom room at any one time. Data from Voyeurs (on YouTube) and from Participants (on Zoom) was gathered, as at ONCA, with consent via a questionnaire, which both participants and voyeurs could fill in. #Sergina was embodied by me (in London) and Vladimir Bjelicic (in Belgrade). #Sergina's Stimulatingly Sexy Simulation of #Security was played by Roux Malherbe.
