RAINBOW - TRY-OUTS at WORKING TITLE FESTIVAL

Please find more infos and the full program here

Rainbow is a project that questions identity and its multiple facets. This project is born out of the desire to develop a research around reflecting and refracting light and the attempt to create a miniature rainbow. Creating a miniature rainbow is the attempt to create an optical effect, which cannot be physically approached. A rainbow is not an object and does not exist at a particular location.
In the same way as rainbows are formed by the reflection, refraction and dispersion of sunlight by raindrops, we all are the result of an infinity of reflections or refractions of the encounters that we make during our life, and this from the beginning, with our first meeting – that with our family. Our identity is plural. There is no one and only point of view, although we are constantly confronted with a simplifying categorisation (right and left, young and old, man and woman, etc.) It seems obvious, however, that we are complex human beings with different facets and layers that accumulate throughout our lives and that therefore we are several things at the same time.

Rainbow I, shown in KANAL, creates a moving universe of colours and depth through an ingenious play of video and mirror film.
In Les Brigittines Rainbow II creates an ephemeral rainbow of water drops and light. The two installations at the festival are part of an overarching project that will result in a performative and immersive installation with live music during the Lunalia festival in nona in May 2019."
