'I'll sing you a song, my lips won't move' is a participatory performance piece, combining interactive musical composition, pervasive gaming, and surrealist theatre.
As the player explores a prepared room with headphones, they realise that, depending on whether they move or not, or where they are in the room, they can conduct the music, the visual projections and, in the final part of the piece, the movements of a dancer.
The player, having turned into a performer, experiences the sounds, the environment and their own presence in it, as well as the presence of the masked people on the floor from which the sounds seem to emanate.
