‘Behaviour of whole systems unpredicted by the behavior of their parts taken separately. More accurately known as Emergent Behaviour.’
Emergent Behaviour are a two-part 'Live Art Duet' that act as mediators between their worlds. People are constantly identifying themselves through their gender, race, sexuality etc and this is creating boundaries. In order to overcome discrimination we must surpass this terminology and therefore create new 'utopian moments' through which people can identify themselves. Why must we be alone in a crowded place such as on public transport? We explore the ideas of togetherness and inclusion; how this can be created within a defined environment, and experienced by a diverse range of people. We hope to create for the individual a sense of community, that we feel is often absent in a great deal of live art, as well as in our society in general. We aim to take these issues out of the everyday and place them into an extra-daily world.
