WIND is an animated short about the daily life of people living in a windy area who seem helplessly exposed
to the weather. However, the inhabitants have learned to deal with their difficult living conditions.
The wind creates a natural system for living.
WIND zeigt den Alltag der Bewohner in einem sehr windigen Land. Scheinbar
schutzlos dem Wetter ausgesetzt schaffen sie es dennoch, ihren Alltag
einfallsreich zu meistern.

:roundabout departs from a practical and theoretical investigation about coincidences, leading quickly towards the blurry and dark world of dreams, ghosts and fears.
Its for is hybrid, from performance to installation.
This video shows version 3, which has been adapted to a window space in Detroit.
Formally it is an animated theatrical Mini-Object and Media Art installation, located in small loupe boxes through which the viewer can dive into the improbable world of ghostly-dark and frightening-dreamy coincidences, where all seems connected and everything and nothing seems possible.
2062 is a multidisciplinary show nurtured by scenic, multimedia, comic, illustration and animation techniques, as well as shadow and object theatre to create a scenic and cinematographic live show. With these ingredients a dystopian world is created that talks about borders, walls, new migrations and the latest geopolitical and economic changes.
Interactive scenic installation
A paper city in the center of the room. A labyrinth city. Video projectors, shadows, sensors, Arduinos, torch lights, ceramic objects, LEDs and surround sound create a world that changes depending on the viewers’ actions.
His movements and the different places he illuminates with a torch light determine multiple dramaturgic possibilities, creating a unique and unrepeatable experience. Ephemera.
In this city, this maze, exist places everyone wants to enter and others everyone wants to escape from. There is also lost places on the way towards nowhere. Evanescent shadows, hardly intuited and the exodus, loss, desperate escape, death but also life and here and there a smile. There is also history, our history, always present and always forgotten. And the future, yes it’s also there. Nothing changes, or almost nothing. Just as before, yes, just as now and also just as tomorrow.
A new live cinema performance by Karla Kracht and Andrés Beladiez.
We continue the research line we undertook in our previous work “zoomwooz”, deepening in the different discoverings we made. Again, the aesthetic approach will take us on a path, where live video, shadow play and sound space combine to a format which we call “live-cinema” or “expanded cinema”. We are interested in working “live, in real time. The “now and here”. Also the humanized use of technology, something like “low technology”.
The world will never be the same again... Boarders will turn red again or disappear completely. They will become less accessible. New walls will be build and old ideals will be buried. Wars will be different, but continue killing at ideologic gunpoint. Capitalism, with hardly any opponent, will extend covering the terrestrial world with its coat. Governments will cease their power cells to big corporations. New migrations and an agonised Europe resisting to lose its hegemony. Citizens searching their identities in shopping carts. The 21st century arrived and changed us forever. But we hardly realised it. Somehow everything continues the same...
