projection and film by Thijs Geritz
At this event, the gong is projected in the main hall, separated from the performing space without a sound or with a very short fragment of the sound from the performance, and the audience could perceive differently between the projection and what they actually see from the performance, as to control the gong, it needs a very small amount of the movement, yet the sound is quite noisy.
"This edition of Test Extra provides a podium for the world as we experience it, increasingly via a screen. A time where we are bombarded with images and the border between recorded and "real" is becoming increasingly vague, demands playful intervention between these two sides. That is the ambition of of this live-event that reflects on a life where the 'tele'(ancient greek for 'far') is always near and vice versa. Get ready for ongoing performances and unusual meetings with your daily media-fied reality!
