It is recommended, when you win, to maintain your enemy’s self-esteem. You should show such a force display that your opponent understands surrendering not as a humiliation but as the only possible outcome.
What’s out there is war.
A promenade performance that uses the city ‘as it is’ to overlay a narrative onto the incidental events, people and existing architecture enhancing the blurred line between reality and fiction.
The passers-by and their actions serve as oblivious players in the story and the architecture and landscape provide the backdrop to a new ‘fictional’ town.
The show is a transportable site-specific performance that utilizes the feature of relocation and adaptation through the disciplines of visual arts, storytelling, installation and soundscape.
In an exercise of unplugged augmented reality the show explores the themes of manipulation, loneliness and consensus.
The audience are led to witness these actions and events from orchestrated angles and distances in ways that make them feel attached and yet simultaneously alienated and helpless to what they see unfolding.
Three groups of audiences will be led by the three performers to go through a simultaneous journey with a common point of departure and arrival where mirrored and crossing images will happen.
The show is funny, disconcerting and strangely beautiful like Kantor´s Maritime Concert.
This promenade performance lasts approximately one hour, beginning at Camden People’s Theatre (NW1 2PY) and at a nearby location. Please wear appropriate footwear.
If you are a wheelchair user or have limited mobility, please phone the Box Office on 0207 419 4841 for more details.
