Tadej Droljc: Beambreaker

Friday 23, 9 pm.
Teatro Jovellanos

In this double session at Teatro Jovellanos, Slovenian Tadej Droljc will present audiovisual performance Beambreaker, a work made up of laser, light, bent mirrors and sound, in which volumetric audiovisual objects emerge from a close synchronization between beams of light and broken sound waves.

These objects are multistable – as we observe them, we are not sure if we are listening to the sound of moving light structures or if we see an embodiment of sound, or maybe something in between? Within the poetic space of Beambreaker, all these interpretations are equally valid. This ambiguity mixed with cross-fertilising combination of sound and visuals enables a very personalized experience of audiovisual reality that is filled with our unconscious desires and emotions. Beambreaker hence offers a mirror in which the invisible can be brought to light.
