DE-FENCES is an interactive performance produced and directed from Theatre Entropia. The performance revolves around the dividing lines in the world from physical walls to emotional and behavioral stereotypes. Theatre Entropia produced two different editions of the performance and we were invited to create captivating experiences.
Using digital technologies we welcomed the audiences into a live dialogue and engage them in the journey to catharsis.
The initial performance was produced in Athens and was streamed live in Berlin. Audience was invited to take control of virtual performers that where part of the performance through digital projections.
A live dialogue between the performers and the audience was created and elevated the performance from local to global.
During the second edition the Audience was engaged before the show began, giving their names and getting assigned a word. During the performance a dynamic digital wall is being built and the Name-word pairs become the rigid elements that eventually break it enabling the catharsis.
A follow up experience/ demonstration was created for the EVA Conference in London that utilizes the recorded performances to create individual memories and history, which construct and define a whole new audience experience.
