A book to dance to? THE E-INFO AGE BOOKMIX is an audio and video performance based on two books by Marshall McLuhan, The Medium is the Massage and The Electric Information Age Book, as well as other material – vintage recordings, notes, conserved type-written materials, television clips, jingles, rhythmic traces. Marking the 100th anniversary of the author’s birth, the project brings the media theoretician back to life in a dialogue between the first cybernetic era and the present digital age. A conversation that includes live and recorded and printed archive material.
