May I take you away? Into a world you don't know? Which you can't know at all... because it's mine.

 


Based on the feeling of longing and the desire for escapist experiences, Katharina Simons conceived

a participatory, virtual performance.
With the self-developed staging strategy of Imaginative Pictrue Sharing, Katharina Simons gently and at the same time with "refreshing confusion" (visitor quote) leads the visitors into the images of her - and at the same time - their subconscious. The focus is on sharing a common experience. An experience outside our everyday reality. A virtual experience without any technical support. It is a fantastic journey to inner places of longing, surreal worlds, psychedelic nightmares and dreamlike visions.

The performance was created as part of the research for the next project "EXIT THROUGH THE UNIVERSE". The process of creation was supported by the Artists-in-Residence programme, curated by Barbara.
