Arrival Space

ASDIC (Sonar)

This immersive performance uses digital projection, experimental sound and the spectator’s participation in an audiovisual rendition process. Led through a labyrinth of passages to an ominous, confined space, the individual spectator will be subjected to an incomprehensible interrogation that becomes increasingly oppressive. Stripped of all linguistic elements, the interrogative process reflects the experience of the expendable obedient citizen-subject body under sovereign power: the human sense faculties in the stress position.

The duration of the work will, for each performance, slightly exceed the participant’s comfort thresholds.
