Response to go following 'Insider: Unwrapping Reality'

A performance at the intersection of virtual and physical reality mediates a perceptual laboratory in which the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds are questioned in an attempt to reflect on what everyday lived reality actually means. Response to go is an invitation to share impressions via a closed messenger chat and learn about the perception of your fellow audience members.

This post-performance discussion takes place in the bathtub. Or on the S-Bahn. During breakfast or the cigarette after. We will be searching for traces of the production in our own everyday lives; we will continue to write the story of the production digitally on our smartphones. We will post photos, sounds, text or videos, receive tasks, pose questions. We will choose the time and place ourselvesand, by the way, we will remain anonymous.

About the venue

Tatwerk goes... Kiezkapelle

TATWERK sees itself as a laboratory for the exploration of aesthetic potentials and forms a diverse community as an incubator of new ideas, perspectives and practices. The focus is on political and poetic projects, visionary concepts that reflect and question social dynamics and introduce new ways of working and formats into the scene based on their questions. At TATWERK, artists perform in different formats: there are premieres and guest performances, but also analog and digital work shows and work-in-progress. At our events we welcome a diverse audience that wants to go on a voyage of discovery into the depths of contemporary performing arts. 

Since the spring 2022 TATWERK opens up to the public space and, together with the artists, explores the potential impact of the performing arts beyond its own premises. 

About the performance

Insider: Unwrapping Reality

'Insider: Unwrapping Reality' is a mixed reality performance for one person at a time that plays with the overlap of presence. It is a sensorial experience that uses the combination of touchscapes and immersive video to create parallel realities that confront the viewer with the question of how much to engage with the tactile world and how much with the visual. How to exist simultaneously in both realities, the virtual and the physical? The choices of each viewer, create a particular way of investigating and experiencing the proposed world. This sensorial experience occurs in interaction with strangers -some of them virtual, some of them of real flesh and blood-; the viewer decides how to relate to them using different modes of attention: observing, imagining, imitating, opposing, ignoring, embodying another or even disembodying him/herself. The Insider engages the viewer in a continuous negotiation between the need for following one’s agency - differentiating oneself from others-, and adapting and reshaping oneself to be with the other. Insider does not pretend to benefit from VR to create empathy among people, if something, it promotes empathy towards oneself, the presence of others being a bridge to self-awareness.
