ANAGRAM (GB)

KUNSTENAARSGESPREK 2. THOUGHT COLLIDER & ANAGRAM

CONFERENCE FOR THE CURIOUS | STRP SENSES & SENSORS

ANAGRAM consists of Amy Rose and May Abdalla, two ex-documentary filmmakers who left their day jobs to strike up a partnership. In their work they replace the visual with the sensual and integrate interactive technology in vivid documentary storytelling. Their most successful project to date is called Door into the Darkwhich was a public’s favorite at Tribeca Film Festival in New York in 2015, where it won the Storyscapes award for best interactive work. The jury called it: “Ambitious, simple and profound”. “This work marks a fresh and promising direction for the field of immersive theatre. It evoked a euphoria that stayed with us long after we left it.”Door into the Dark is a compelling documentary experience about what it means to be lost in an era of infinite information. Amy and May will talk about their practice and the many ways in which they combine old fashioned radio play, GPS technology and immersive theatre. Door into the Dark is a co-production with MU and will be on show from 16 March until 16 April, 2017 opposite the Klokgebouw where STRP takes place.
