One of this year's special projects at Le Guess Who? 2019 takes place tonight: the European premiere of Dossier X, an immersive audio-visual collaboration between composer Patrick Higgins, installation artist Matthew Schreiber, and choreographer Monica Mirabile.
Inside of Matthew Schreiber’s laser sculpture, musician, dancer, and audience alike become immersed in a hypnotic landscape of engrossing sound, image, movement and meditation. The site-responsive piece is created to the unique conditions of its venue, this time being TivoliVredenburg's spectacular Grote Zaal. As audience members and dancers move below the cathedral-like geometry of the light installation, the piece engages with the alienation and inner emotional economy of contemporary digital life, its politics, erotics, systems, and violence.
Dossier X offers a cathartic meditation on contemporary society’s tangled web of turbulence, consumption, and destruction. Originating from the conceptual framework of Patrick Higgins’s album Dossier (2018). Spectacle, subversion, and power are explored through a brutal beauty offering a critical reflection on our precarious state.
