interactive performance is about eavesdropping and creating
fragmented vignettes around voice and sound recordings. A sound
designer and a performer gather in a public space and investigate
ideas around gossip and how stories get distorted in the course of
being told. A story is being narrated. Fiction
leaks into reality and reality gradually changes into fiction. The
audience is drawn into an imaginative space where they experience
their immediate surroundings in a new way.
How do we construct identities? Sometimes the observations of a stranger can shed a completely new light on given facts. Perceptions deviate according to context. The outside eye opens new parameters of perceiving the neighbourhood and the ear propels selective hearing.
This work in progress showing is the first collaboration between me and electronic musician Wallace Dice.
