There is a beast in everyone of us, captured in a fragile shell called civilization. Project Wildeman breaks this shell in Heart of Darkness.
The figure Kurtz – once a briljant ghost – steps into the contemporary jungle, where the digital and pshycical are intertwined. Echoes fuse with digital creaks; absurdistic comic pieces turn into disorganized confrontations with the hidden vaults of Kurtz’s hybrid mind. The civilization gets pealed layer by layer.
What remains? A person with a hollow core? A digital consciousness without a body? Or something in between, an enlightened animal with a technological sixth sense?
When & Where?
In 2016, Heart of Darkness could be seen during the Operadagen Rotterdam, Kunsten Op Straat (Zwolle), Over het IJ Festival, Karavaan and Wonderfeel.
