The Tesla Project: Alternating Current

Alternating Current is a part of the Tesla Project, a choreographed concert by Maria W Horn and Stina Nyberg. It was be performed with The woman who lit the world at Revolve festival, Köttinspektionen, Uppsala on the 19 May 2018.

Alternating Current is an intermedial electricity concert choreographed and performed by Maria W Horn, Stina Nyberg and a frequency-controllable Tesla coil. The concert is one part of a long-term obsession with Nikola Tesla and the early 1900’s phenomena of touring electricity shows. There is a lack of public fascination with electricity, but Alternating Current is here to cure that.
