Alpha, conceived and produced by the fabien prioville dance company, sends visitors on a gaming parcour. The performance installation is an experimental arrangement that deliberately leaves room for the element of chance in order to offer the audience the opportunity to independently explore the museum / performative space.
The focus is now no longer on the fundamental exploration of possible uses of smartphones in a performative context, but rather on the exploration of new habits on the one hand and the development of collective concepts of use on the other.
Alpha starts as a freely downloadable app that successively turns the visitors’ private smartphone into a kind of natural extension of the body. The app invites visitors to playfully explore the exhibition, while they are asked to collect parts of a code using their private smartphones in order to gain access to an additional room at the end, where a “performative reward” awaits.
The project will be presented in August 2021 as part of the exhibition "Willkommen in Paradies" in NRW Forum/Museum Kunstplast.
A production of fabien prioville dance company, co-produced by NRW Forum.
