Atelier 1, 5. Stock


A theatrical installation for one person in virtual space

A table, a place of community, of family, becomes a space of remembering with the help of a VR headset. The visitors can only sit at the table one at a time. Thus they experience what it means to be alone in a room that was shared with other people before the pandemic. How does memory work in virtual space? How can the experience of going to the theatre, which is traditionally based on sharing an experience with many people, be created in spite of the isolation forced on us by the pandemic? In his immersive installation, Frankfurt stage designer, video artist and photographer Philip Bußmann combines traditional theatrical means with modern digital imagery and acoustic worlds – sensorially simple and contemplatively intense at the same time.
