Requiem for the future is an immersive media project in which students from Scenography, worked on a visual-musical performance. They have created a number of time-based works immersing the audience both in a visual and a musical way. With Requiem for the Future, we investigated the way people have looked at the future. Are we really living those dreams? Are we still looking for a by-tech-improved-future?

Big Silence is the second piece where I worked with Kevin Pieterse. On his initiative this time, he asked to join his video installation. He was looking for a quality or a presence which would add to his installation but won’t take over. It shouldn’t become me performing, it should be me trying to communicate, be part, or come together with the video and sphere Kevin created with his sound and video.

For me it felt so uncertain to perform next to it without being “too much”. How do you perform without a clear movement score and be part of the installation? A research which I have grown quitte fond of.
