The Denial This is Forever
-a digital show done live in-person-
About the show:
Duration: 1 hour
Audience members: 1-6
It's part museum, part live action video game, part live performance. The Denial this is Forever explores the limits and ineptitude of connecting through digital media. Digital photos frames, projection work and a bread crumb trail of tea lights guide you through a series of digital circus pieces that will leave you anxious to finally take a break from screens and watch a real warm human body move through the air on trapeze.

A hybrid solo performance on the trapeze, The Denial This is Forever invites a small group of audience members to reflect on how their lives have been altered by this new and heavy reliance on digital technology for work, play and connecting with other humans. So much that used to be in-person has been replaced by screens and tech. We’ve been operating on the idea that this is only for now, but what if things stayed this way forever?
A summary of the show’s format:
Upon entering the space audiences are greeted with a short video explaining the format of the show. The video then prompts them to explore a series of digital installations, a series of digital photo frames. The audience are then moved on to the next installation, a projection of an artist on trapeze.
