*REPLICA::Searching for the Lighthouse*

*6.30pm to 9pm _**performance start 7.30pm*

Immersive interactive installation & performance presented by REPLICA

“*Can you hear it*?” Iona said with a trembling voice.

The storm is coming. At the table, the greying engineer silently nodded.
The algorithm had finally ripened. It has become too complex, she muttered.
So many ripples in the… I am not sure we can process that much. An early
stream of data had started swirling through the cracks in the floor of the
old lighthouse.

The machine learning model is not a static piece of code—it requires
feeding, training and updating, to the point that it sometimes resembles a
living entity, one we are not familiar with. Following the law of
accelerating returns, technological systems puzzle us like nature once did.

As immersive performance, "Searching for the Lighthouse" explores human
rituals devoted to coping with the enigmatic character of algorithmic
logic. Using sound art, reactive devices and biosensors to augment physical
theatre, it stages the hopeful search for an incantation able to appease
forces of an artificial nature—signals once domestic gone feral.

REPLICA is a physical theatre platform to invent and rehearse future
realities. It welcomes performers, directors and scientists wishing to
collaborate on reverse-engineering human emotions and imagining tomorrow’s
rituals; to devise new interaction models for humans and technologies; and
to prototype future tools, cultures and rituals using artificial
intelligence, machine learning and physical theatre techniques.

*Art + Feminism Edit-a-Thon Berlin::Free Workshop*

*11am to 6pm*

While Wikipedia is the largest and most popular general reference work on
the internet, less than 10% of contributors to Wikipedia identify as female.
When we don’t tell our stories or participate in the ways our history is
preserved, it gets erased.Content is skewed by the lack of female
This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository
of shared knowledge.
Gaps in the coverage of knowledge about women, gender, feminism, and the
arts on one of the most visited websites in the world is a big problem and
we need your help to fix it.

Please join us on 7. April in Berlin as we gather in solidarity with the
Art + Feminism global community to help change the ratio.

No Wikipedia editing experience necessary! Workshops will be provided for
Wikipedia newcomers.What to expect:

— a short training about how to get started as a Wikipedia editor (11am)
— Discussion about the art+feminism movement
— group brainstorm about topics to edit, or women to add to wikipedia
— editing on wikipedia

For those who already have experience editing on wikipedia, you’re welcome
to skip the morning introduction and drop in as time allows. If you’ve not
edited on wikipedia previously, you’re encouraged to attend the early
training session at 11am.

Note: Please bring your laptops with you to the event.

People are welcome to take breaks as necessary. Feel free to bring snacks
