Designed, directed and performed by Oliver James Hymans
Produced by animate:SPACE theatre company.
Presented at Act Art 5, the Arches London Bridge 2007
Extreme one-on-one performance presented at the annual festival of body art and live experimental performance, Act Art 5, 2007.
Audience members were invited to take a seat in an old dentist's chair within a purposely designed environment to play on people's fear. Working with sound artist Patrick Furness, a new approach to immersive theatre was explored, through the use of a new sound technology which played audio into the audience member's mouth, with the teeth, head and mouth cavity acting as a sound box. Only for the brave!
Design elements included a noir-esque setting, video projection on the audience's body, and dramatic lighting intended to add to the intimidation.
