Dark Twisted Mind is an interactive performance and installation that speaks about the damages caused by structural violence. It plays among the programmer of the structure, the compliers, and the victim; through an interactive chain reaction of sound, light, and movement according to the game score. In production with HfS Berlin 2021.
Music was composed with texts, vocals, thick noise and harsh flying high-tones. Sound was researched and designed in association with a butchery, recorded, produced, live mixed and distributed to six channels of loudspeakers which formed a surrounding space for the players and observers. sound was chosen as the medium to transport the invisible ghostly character of the structural violence. Light was reacting to the triggered sound by the players. It was not only a mediator of the visualised sound effect but also designed as a space cutter.
Four volunteered audiences as players live controlled the sound through tablets. Each player as an initiator interacted with the body parts of the dancer. Performer received sound input from the players. The effect of the input was visualised through the choreographed movement qualities that evolved over time. The extreme status of kinetic exhaustion was endeavoured.
