Presented by Mamoru Iriguchi
In 4D Cinema, Mamoru turns himself into a cinema with a screen and a projector built around his face. He then performs live and on screen with Marlene Dietrich, an iconic Hollywood star who is now dead.
Set in and around a cinema and employing historic footage as well as newly filmed video clips, 4D Cinema is a performance piece exploring what is live and what is recorded and fixed eternally on film, what this means to us in this day and age where new technology blurs actual and virtual realities.
"This is a really cunning, witty work that makes the brain cells spark with delight" – Mary Brennan, The Herald
"[A] haunting, whimsical reflection on how we understand the life of Marlene Dietrich, driven by some brilliant use of laptop technology" – Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
"An unexpectedly profound meditation on the paradoxes of time and eternity in the context of live performance and its recording. It was also the most sophisticated use of multimedia I can remember seeing onstage; ‘live art’ indeed" – Humphrey Bower, Daily Review, Crikey.com.au
About the artist
Mamoru is a performance maker whose work and surrealist humour are rooted in his knowledge and experience in theatre design, as well as broad interests in liveness and the pre-recorded, gender and sexuality, fairytales and evolution theories.
