As we spend ever more of our time in virtual spaces, from social media to VR gaming, Québecois artists Push 1 stop and Wiklow seek to reverse the trend, realising virtual environments in the physical world. Through a smoky, semi-opaque haze, and to a pounding techno accompaniment, the audience will see three-dimensional shapes sculpted in light appear and change, their mutations and transformations influenced in real time by the artists as they interact through rehearsed actions and improvisation. Membrane suggests an alternative to the use of pre-programmed visuals to accompany live electronica, and proposes a more responsive, dynamic visual element for performance.
