Urban Creatures

Interactive performance with electronic sounds

When does digital content become a threat? Which traces do technologies leave in our bodies? In the music theatre and dance performance by the choreographer Sebastian Matthias, visitors encounter imaginative creatures of fear and become part of an actual sound installation. Through the loudspeakers of their mobile phones, they listen to electronic sounds that react to physical proximity and merge into a collective body of sound within the space. On the sandy floor of filter4, a former water filter plant, virtual worlds meet the oldest emotion of mankind.


In cooperation with ZeitRäume Basel – Biennale for New Music and Architecture and the fashion design course at FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Basel.
