Matilda is a creation by L:ED mixing digital art and living art commissioned by the FONLAD, to close its 2016 edition in Coimbra (Portugal).
Matilda is a piece in 4 parts about the awakening to consciousness, the developpement of the personnality, its individuation and ultimately the keeping of sanity. This video shows part 1 to 3.
Matilda mixes corporality, visuals and sounds to elaborate a complete performance, where dream and reality intersect, where the personality gradually embodies itself to reach its full potential. But, confronted to the outside, will Matilda's personality stay consistent, sound and safe? The piece is immersive so the viewer can give vent to his imagination and bring his own interpretation to the creation.
