Mixed Media Performance / Duration: 45 min / Sound: Transfoma

GRAETE is the result of Transforma's continuing investigations of pure materiality and archaic manual processes.

In the performance GRAETE a special apparatus, consisting of different mechanical, image and sound equipment, is used to explore prototypes of simple human tools and their application. During the performance, the differentiation between the archaic objects and the modern technological setup disappears. A stick or stone becomes recognisable as a tool, as does a camera or a spotlight.

GRAETE is an imagined time-travel in a sequence of images. In the first image prehistoric humans sit in a cave using wooden sticks to stir a fire. In the last image a modern man analyses the same fireplace with modern machinery.

The resulting video- and sound-live-stream consists of actions performed in realtime on stage.
