He is also co-founder of a telematic performance collective (ADaPT) and has explored telepresence in performances with partners in different places. He has directed numerous multimedia theatre, dance, and digital performances in Europe, the Americas, Japan, China and Australia; collaborated on site-specific installations, and exhibited work at film and video festivals. He now resides in Houston and London.
He's author of Theatre, Theory, Postmodernism (1989), Media and Performance (1998), Performance on the Edge (2000), Performance, Technology and Science (2008). In 2003 he founded the Interaktionslabor (http://interaktionslabor.de) - an interactive media lab in a former coal mine in southwest Germany which has met every July since 2003 and conducts international workshops and labs.
Since 2004 Johannes has been developing a research group in England where he co-directs the Design-and-Performance Lab ( DAP-Lab), at Brunel University; he moves between Houston and London and is Professor of Performance Technologies & head of the Center for Contemporary and Digital Performance.
The DAP lab is an ensemble of artists and researchers (arts and science), and the lab also has a performing company that operates either as the LAB or as a label, dans sans joux for performances, exhibitions and new collections.
Its recent development of a new collection of audiophonic choreographic wearables is entitled UKIYO [Moveable Worlds], now continued with a new production phase (2011-13) titled "for the time being." The first version of the new choreosonic work was premiered in London in May 2012.
Another recent work, Suna no Onna, created collaboratively with the Dap-Lab group and produced by Dans Sans Joux, premiered at London's Laban Centre as part of the Intimacy: Across Visceral and Digital Performance Festival, Goldsmiths University of London (2007). A book on this festival is in preparation and will appear in 2012. The chapter "Bodies of Color" describes the workshop Johannes conducted with Michèle Danjoux at 'Intimacy.' Another essay will appear in "Leonardo" detailing the design in motion concepts for "Ukiyo."

Hi Johannes, just a note to say I have replied to your post, which I very much appreciated. I presented a paper at this year`s PSI conference through my avatar Rollo Kohime from my Second Life railway station - found the whole event quite interesting from this removed platform. I have also just presented my work to my peers and supervisors two weeks ago in Auckland at our week-long conference there and met a wonderful dancer, Brent Harris, who ironically watched my paper presentation in Zagreb at the PSI conference. The synchronicity of 'intimate distance'!

The digital oratorio Corpo, Carne e Espírito (Body, Flesh and Spirit), created by Johannes Birringer (digital choreography) and Paulo C. Chagas (music), premieres at the 9th International Theatre Festival of Belo Horizonte (Brasil) on June 27-29, 2008, featuring an ensemble of musicians and vocalists, and a triptych of film projections and animations inspired by the figural paintings of Francis Bacon. The work investigates the invisible forces of the human body in the contexts of new music composition (electronic and acoustic), interactive technology, and immersive environments.
The music for this audiovisual work was composed by Paulo C. Chagas, inspired by the paintings of bodily deformations and anamorphoses in Bacon's oeuvre. It features three voices (soprano, counter-tenor, baritone), string quartet, percussion and electronic sounds that are integrated in the visual and performance environment designed by Johannes Birringer. The oratorio is conducted by Mr Chagas; live programming of the image movements, projected onto a curved triptych of screens upstage behind the musicians, is performed by Mr. Birringer.
The compositional plan for this performance of Corpo, Carne e Espírito was developed at the International Interaktionslabor, the annual media lab directed by Birringer in Göttelborn, Germany, since 2003 (http://interaktionslabor.de). During their residency at FIT Theatre Festival, Mr Birringer and Mr Chagas will conduct workshops in composition and digital performance. The oratorio will tour European venues in 2009.

dear Yukihiko, --
yes, sure, go ahead. thanks for creating the group.
you will be pleased to hear that our last concert (Friday night) of showing Suna no Onna was very wonderful, i think the piece has grown and improved, and we felt it was visually so much stronger, as were the performances and the lighting/colors. We are all quite pleased. see our gallery:
