'Intergalactic (An Attempt to Overcome the Binary)' at de Brakke GrondTheater / Amsterdam
May 15-16 2014, Thurs at 9.30pm; Fri at 8pm
Artists Andrea Božić, Robert Pravda and Julia Willms, operating under the collective name Tilt, will present their thought-provoking work Intergalactic (An Attempt to Overcome the Binary) at de Brakke Grond as a part of the Come Together: Beauty, Bauhaus and The Beast festival.
Intergalactic (An Attempt to Overcome the Binary) is a performance piece inspired by the work Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius by Jorge Luis Borges.
Utilising visual and auditory elements, the performance seeks to transform a black-box theatre into a living, breathing organism.
Formerly regarded as a container for holding objects, the transcending performance creates holes in this conception of the theatre with the audience witnessing a breakdown in the assumed dichotomy as the world of the performers, theatre and audience meld one united element.
The sounds, words and video projections of Tilt imagine a world that, through the very process of imagining, simultaneously creates the conceived world.
