A cocoon lies on stage, barely recognisable in the dim light. An almost static chord is sounding in the space. The light changes in color – the chord is changing slowly in pitch and texture. The cocoon seems to move – the light seems to get brighter and gradually shift color. Suddenly a fast movement – a sound erupts into the space, the light flashes – then again everything quiets down – the movement, the sound, the light.
Wezen is a music-theatre work where I try to explore the relationship between theatrical gesture and musical instrument, between the body and the sonic world. In Gewording (Becoming) the link between physical and sonic gesture is explored during a live performance, combining movement of the body and live coding.
In collaboration with Jaime del Val as a result of the METABODY project.
METATOPIA is an architectural paradigm of indeterminate space, enacted as a nomadic, interactive & performative environment for outdoors & indoors spaces that merges dynamic physical & digital architectures, with 3D and multisensory immersion, focusing on indeterminacy, unpredictability and open-ended relation to bodies and surrounding environment, an indeterminate space of emergent behaviours and movements that defies prediction and control in the Big Data Era. Metatopia is a unique hybrid of performance art, dance, technology, sound art, interactive architecture, VR, gaming, visual arts, live abstract film, sculpture, design, philosophy and activism. Metatopia is a Barraca of the S. XXIst Century, an Occupy 2.0, a (post-)cyberpunk metamedia Opera, a simchthonic chorus.
