‘Blackout’ is a unique and immersive new performance work for one person at a time by artist Tim Bishop. The work takes place in total darkness and uses spatial audio and haptic feedback to create a multi-sensory and evocative environment for a powerfully self-reflective experience. An unseen voice and a physical guide encourage participants on an introspective journey, exploring both virtual spaces and the physical room through 3D sound and touch. Mixing concepts such as mindfulness and object permanence with complete darkness and immersive technologies, ‘Blackout’ offers a powerfully experiential experience for each visitor to reflect on their own unique presence in the universe.
‘Blackout’ was first shown as a prototype at Stenkrossen in Lund in October 2019. It has its premiere at Dunkers kulturhus in December 2019 and has already been performed at Stenkrossen, Lund in January 2020. The work has been commissioned by Mono Festival of One-to-One Performance and is supported by Lunds kommun, BoostHbg, Sennheiser electronic GmbH and Lund University Humanities Lab.
