Installation: May 5 and 6
In the Doghouse you experience, what the actor experiences — As if you were there.
It started with the desire to understand mother. Her thoughts, her little lies, and her shame. So she no longer could hide behind, what all mothers hide behind; that she gave birth to you. To understand her, we need to see her point of view. And not just her point of view, but also the points of view of the people around her. That led to The Doghouse, and the idea to experience the same story from five different points of view at the same time. Omni-POV. We call it First Person Reality, because we put the audience even before the first row, inside the character, where the film is no longer fiction, but reality. In the Doghouse you experience, what the actor experiences. As if you were there. You see, what the actor sees, and you hear, what the actor hears. So you, by the help of the actor, become a character in the film. Like an advanced role playing game. The Samsung Gear glasses give the spectator the opportunity to look around the living room. You yourself choose where to look, in the ceiling, to the sides, or even down the body of your character. At the same time you’ll have a true perception of the sounds surrounding you, so you can navigate in the audio landscape. Together these impressions create an experience of being present in the film, like being in a dream, a memory, or pure fantasy.
