My experience piece Det Umuliges Mulighed (The Possibility of the Impossible) explores what it means to be human captured in the intersection between possibility and impossibility. Through light, sound, smoke and tall video-projections I transformed the main stage at The Royal Danish Theatre into an experience where different layers of colors, shadows and forms emerge into a unity of becomingness.
By moving back and forth between different layers of possibility and impossibility the experience captures an instant in the intersection between transcendence and immanence. Balancing on the boundary of temporality and timelessness you find yourself on the edge of reality.
I worked with the flow through the experience piece: On their way through the experience the visitors move between being back stage versus front stage and being observer versus being observed. In one moment you are a shadow, in another you are observer and in the moment to follow you are the one being observed.
