Youth movements, counter-cultural and sub-cultural movements have always embodied a spirit of against. In these social, political, and cultural movements, bodies of collision, reaction, and volatility have always been characteristic. In a choreography made from practices of networks and peer-to-peer file-sharing programs, "Limewire*" questions the spirit of against when the strongest counter-cultural tool becomes the ability to copy. What is the status of this youth movement that disseminates authentic and inauthentic alike; which corrupts or bugs, but never dies, which never creates anew but proliferates a ’mass movement’ only by reproducing and reassembling itself?
Andros Zins-Browne studied ballet at an early age at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City. After completing degree in Art Semiotics at Brown University (2002) he studied at the P.A.R.T.S in Brussels. His graduation performance "Limewire*" (2006) was immediate success. They toured with the piece for several years and then there was pause, until the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance invited Zins-Browne to re-create this piece with their students. And now Baltoscandal Festival invited Zins-Browne to re-create another new version of it with the dance and theatre students of the University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy. So, after several months of rehearsal period "Limewire * (v3.0)" reaches it’s premiere at Baltoscandal 2016.
