Elastic joints. Dancing as a drill of jaktations. Always slower. More and more nervous. Progressing in senseless loops, circling around the same feverishly throbbing memories, which are not memories at all but inventions, wandering in sensory deprivation. There is no reason. There was nothing. And there is nothing. This is how it can work, the metamorphosis from beast to borg. Behind the Schwarzschild radius, all bodies, all images, all light, all sense and all hope are silted up, forgotten, lost in the Hades of the New Age.
Admission from 16 years
During the event, stroboscopic light effects are used over considerable periods of time. The event is therefore not suitable for persons with epilepsy, serious heart problems or claustrophobic fears and for pregnant women. The event must not be attended under the influence of mind-altering drugs.
The video projections show images that could be experienced as disturbing or repulsive.
