Tamara Vadas – Márton Emil Tóth – Ábris Gryllus: Sleeping Beauty Project
Sleeping Beauty Project invites the viewers into the transit zone of our inner world and the outer reality. Through text, sound and lights the viewers will experience their own virtual performance and will be offered a space of togetherness.
This project amalgamates contemporary live art forms, visual arts, community activity and theatre. It was borne in the ambition of scouting the unknown, in the excitement of interdisciplinarity, in the wish for audience involvement, in the broadening of horizons.
This game or choreography takes place in the empty theatre space, where the viewers are left on their own guided by an invisible person, a voice. They become the viewers of one another. It is about active presence, about opening the imagination, about dreaming and wakefulness, the hypnotic choreography of reality and fantasy.
’… the show capitulates the viewer into some inter-space, into the fragile reality of imagination and virtuality with some half-serious, half-scam mixture of mental massage and psychological training. There is no stable viewpoint of the recipient at all, we are being manipulated, gamed, triggered for interaction. Strangely enough we only recognise that we have been into something when they journey suddenly ends and we have arrived. When the lights go up, we hear some mild, melodic music we are just sat there for long minutes, winking. Nobody stands up to run for their coats, nobody leaves – we are just there. On our own and together. In something new.’ (Csaba Králl)
