Nature Theatre of Oblivia
– performance and AR experience
We want to be trees. We want to serve as carriers of time.
We want to be mushrooms, fungus deeply rhizomised.
We are nature. Object of nature. We are the point where nature and technology meet. And – the sky is just there.
Nature Theatre of Oblivia works with the impressions, experiences and desires that nature offers us, as a concept and as a place to be, and something to become – like a forest in all its familiarity and uncanniness.
The project will be exploring our relation to nature in a technologically charged world. Nature Theatre of Oblivia will be using performance, and augmented realities – AR, Arilyn technology creating a two-fold experience where the live-performance is one part and the smart phone performance – Oblivia in the pocket using the Arilyn app – another.
Nature Theatre of Oblivia is a live performance and an augmented reality (AR) work, which is part of the and co-produced by the TECHNE project at Theater Rampe and Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in Germany.
