NEW-ILLUSION (SIFA 2023)Organised by: Singapore International Festival of Arts 2023
Performed by: Toshiki Okada / chelfitsch (Japan)
Projected images of a man and a woman begin talking about a play that was performed in the theatre, a play set in the room where they had lived together. But is what the two are talking about fiction or reality? As the fictional, projected space on screen and the real space of the theatre encroach on each other, NEW-ILLUSION invites you to step into that mysterious space of intrigue where reality and fiction blur into each other. It is the latest in a series manifesting chelfitsch's innovative theatre style EIZO-Theater, which creates a unique performance space comprising life-size projected images of performances that interplay with the physical space and give rise to dynamic illusions.
