What does it mean to be present?
Immersive site-specific performance
1 February 2019 - 31 March 2019

The projects objective is to research the potential of site-specific immersive performance practice especially in regards to downscaling the aspect of production and interventions. The project deals with different qualities of presence and awareness transcending the content, methods and form. The work aspires to heighten the quality of awareness of the performance guests through minimal means.

The intent is to create a performance walk in and around Skånes University Hospital. The guests are invited to the performance as the main content-holders and through the walk they will be invited to reflect on different embodiments of escapism and mental absence.

The work will draw upon the practice of participatory theatre, immersive artmaking and mindfulness.
