Error_in_Time - 45 min duration Performance.
Our computers know us more intimately than lovers — but this is a lopsided relationship. Behind their user-friendly facades, what do we know of the operating systems that drive our daily fix? What happens inside the CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSIONS of geek space?
This isn't a performance about identity, its about identity theft. In the age of Facebook, Twitter and Wikileaks, most men and women grapple with issues of online privacy and exposure without understanding how the online world is put together. _Power geek_ figures tend to be male: think Mark Zuckerburg, Julian Assange, and Kevin Mitnick.
Is there a place for women inside *geek space*: what news might a female hacker bring back for the rest of us?
_Error_in_Time gives us a compelling insight into geek space from the perspective of a female hacker. _Error_in_Time uses sound, literature, performance and live code manipulations to explore the intimate workings of computer/human interfaces, surveillance and social media.
_Error_in_Time_ is a performance in which the character enters into her daily computer routine. The coded content of her screen is projected upstage. Networked presences, dancing, file searching and parsing are the main scenes of action. She weaves her story via performative algorithms and types in a surreal first person narrative touching on subjects from dark matter to rogue bots.

'In my fantasies, I imagined there were all this wild women, complete nerds, exotic, anarchistic and dangerous, courageous enough to want to cross borders and break all conventions, psychopathic and with criminal tendencies, politically active, artistic and more: however they just didn't exist.'
