Stromajer and Kunst introduce ›Ballettikka Internettikka‹ a series of tactical art projects initiated in 2001 which explore wireless internet ballet performances combined with guerrilla tactics and mobile live internet broadcasting strategies: artists, or surrogate robots, invade well known artistic venues such as the Boshoi Theater Moscow or the Volksbühne Berlin, and transmit their ballets live on the internet.
In these mostly illegal actions, all the dance activities are contextualised around the intervention in the real space, the technical tools used for transmitting and the performances own specific content.
»We shall fight them on the beaches. We shall fight them on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender.«
