Look forward to a top-class theater experience!

An industrial robot stands lonely in a remote industrial hall. As a leftover from a time when machines did the work for us humans, it still carries out the assembly movements with which it was programmed - although there has long been no more work that it can do meaningfully. Out of an antagonistic moment, man and machine begin to communicate with each other through movement and dance. Their encounter becomes a magical moment of confluence.

About the VR experience:

In this emotional masterpiece, Ricardo Fernando stages the flowing connection between man and machine in front of the almost eerie backdrop of an old factory building. In addition to the classic choreography danced by people, a robotic arm from the KUKA brand is the focus of the action. This moves remotely and interacts in an almost human-like manner with the artists in the various scenes, as if it had never been created for any other purpose. The boundaries between man and machine become increasingly blurred in the course of the performance ...

Press reviews:

»'Kinesphere' offers [...] a unique viewing experience. And after months of living with the effects of the pandemic, shows the advances that have been made in the field of theater production. Ricardo Fernando's intimate, immersive work offers a glimpse into a hopeful future of theater full of possibilities; and a bright orange ray of light in an otherwise gray environment. " Süddeutsche Zeitung, 8.5.21

»Whether intentionally or not: "kinesphere" creates a clever philosophical examination of the topic of "man and machine" without having to read a guide to understand the images. The choreography of the dancers in connection with the robot is a success. The changed context in which the machine appears and "acts" ensures an extremely astonishing experience, especially through the medium of virtual reality.« Benjamin Danneberg - Mixed, September 18, 2021
