- Cross-disicplinary New Music Theatre
Short Wave Apocalypse or the Box is the triumph of the whimsical, the surreal and the apocalyptic as realised through action, video and live electronics. Performers share music and movement on stage in a series of non-sequential dramatic events concerned with the atemporality of our times. From shifting video projections of landscapes to changing sonic soundscapes, the hypnotic sound sequence is almost always present like the time that is ticking away, ignorant of the constant moving state of emergency that is just around the corner.
Short Wave Apocalypse or the Box exposes absurd ideas of technological progress and militarisation from the perspective of nameless hybrid characters and objects: call boys, housewives, laboratory testers, peace observers, soldiers, children, regular people. Among all, music is the pandora’s box which asks a myriad of questions that cannot be answered. When they interfere, they transform and become fast, dangerous and destructive as a short circuit.
