RACHEL WISE MOVEMENT
“Watching you watching me watching you.” - Aarti . Pronouns She/ They.
Aarti is like you, she has a tamagotchi, never leaves their room, and their only interactions are through a screen.
They take part in an online ‘social experiment’ through a chat room where they must do things ‘for the clicks’.
As we engage in a developing online world, we question the depths this affects our psyche, our understanding of ‘others’ and our grip of reality.
In this live online interactive performance the audience controls Aarti’s choices and fate. Through this interactive performance we interrogate our human psyche and question how far, is too far.
Developed in collaboration with EMEARA.
Was Es Ist What it is. : A multimedia immersive short opera.
‘Do not feed or touch the exhibition’
It is 15:00 hours, 17 days and 2 months of the Humanity Exhibition.
Man is displayed in his Perspex display box for visitors to view the last of the species. The specimen is followed by cameras and CCTV.
Viewers are encouraged to interact with the exhibition and participate in the experiment lead by the scientists.
“Man does not bite, but he is living. Please do not touch as physical sensations might intervene with the neural pathways required to stimulate movement through the external hologram visions he experiences. Interference may result in causing permanent damage, trauma or distress for the subject.”
The Man exhibition is an experiment.
Every day at 15:00 man believes he is ‘released’ into the exhibition space. He is ‘released’ by the new evolved human species for scientific experiments.
The viewers see what Man sees through the holograms that appear around him.
Witness the end of man’s history and discover the essence of Humanity as we delve into Man's past, his heartbreak, struggles, nightmares, visions and secrets.
We stimulate and frack man’s mind, to relive scenarios within his memory, gaining an understanding of humans and how they see the world.
We will discover what makes this species who they are. We endeavour to discover why they created philosophy, religion, art, how they destroyed their planet, the sources of their own downfall of their species and why do they still believe, despite the obvious recent failures of our simulator systems, that they are still ‘living’ in ‘reality’ on earth.

‘A colourful opera about overcoming difficulties, finding your identity and staying true to what makes you who you are.’
“The Fidelio Music Friends encounter a world where music and colour is removed; their conductor Fidelio is imprisoned by Pizarro. Fidelios’ friends hatch a plot to break into the prison in disguise to save her. They are challenged by needing to hide their individuality and what makes them who they are.
"Along the way they go about sharing a little music in the prison with other prisoners and help guide a family in crisis. In the end they succeed in persuading the prison and Pizarro to adopt colour, music and individuality. Fidelio returns to her rightful place and conducts the prisoners to sing together.”
