CPU - Kafka's Trial 3D Theater from polycular on Vimeo.
A stereoscopic Realtime Performance based on Kafka´s “The Trial”
Winner of the Media Art Award Salzburg
In Franz Kafka’s THE TRIAL, we found a world full of loops, repeats, instructions and protocols which are familiar parts of every computer programme. This classic text becomes the springboard for a stereoscopic real-time dance theatre piece. The images of the performers are gathered digitally, manipulated and remixed live to plunge an audience each wearing 3D cinema glasses headlong into a thrilling and disturbing illusory world. What steers mankind, what goes, what is lie, what is the logic of the absurd and what the illogicality of reality?
A remarkable adventure, which discovers new forms of expression to question the nature of reality and personal identity.
