In shadow replay media-artist Jan Machacek reflects on his position as an European in Mexico searching for hints of colonial history in a globalized world.
shadow replay is a digital shadow play based on interviews Machacek did in Mexico.
The voices of his interview partner structure the performance talking about topics like the situation of domestically workers in Mexico City or the strange encounter of an astronaut from Michoacán with the U.S.-president.
Shadows, live-videos as well as the outlines of Mexico City and Vienna merge at a projection screen.
The live music of composer Juan Sebastián Lach and the use of different image machines create a journey into a documentary and poetic essay.
