Above & Beyond

Inspired by surrealism, 60s sci-fi cinema and hipster culture of the last two decades, we chose to present our "experiment".

Two enigmatic characters are on stage: a scientist and the subject of experimentation, which is neither a human nor a digital/mechanic/virtual being.

Using elements from contemporary dance-theater, performance-art and a home-made electronic machine, the tension between the two characters and the machine is posing questions about our dependency on technology and the characteristics of a human being now a days. ​
