"Flimmerskotom" is a performance based on the machines, objects and devices of the theatre space itself. It uses the lights of the theatre space as a force that takes over the stage and is the main performer. Normally we identify the human as the protagonist of the theatre, in "Flimmerskotom" there is nearly no human ever visible. Instead the lights and other projection machines become alive and haunt the space. For "Flimmerskotom" we recorded the sounds of the theatre lights (which are all analog lights). The lights are not only visible but also audible. A wide range of frequencies and rhythms cover the space. The theatre becomes an experience of its very own possibilites and technological dreams. For "Flimmerskotom", the stage design itself is no longer background, but it takes over the leading role.
Gregor Glogowski, Alisa M. Hecke and Benjamin Hoesch came together at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen, Germany where overlapping scientific and artistic reasearch motivated their project-based work. In their work they combine elements of Performance, Sound-Art and space-based Installation. Their first work FLIMMERSKOTOM toured in Germany and was invited to the Körber Studio for Young Directors in Hamburg 2015, the Radikal Jung Festival in Munich 2016 and the TONLAGEN Festival in Dresden 2016. Furthermore, they curated and organized the DISKURS - Festival on Spatial Arts 2015 in Giessen.
