Mamoru Iriguchi : What You See When Your Eyes Are Closed / What You Don’t See When Your Eyes Are Open
‘What You See When Your Eyes Are Closed / What You Don’t See When Your Eyes Are Open’ will be a live performance piece about ‘acts of seeing and being seen’.
It features Cyclops, a furry monster who sees the world two-dimensionally through his single eye, and Mamoru, a human with double-sided faces who sees the world through his four eyes. In the performance arena where everyone – performers, technicians and audiences – is having completely different visual experiences of the same event, unlike watching TV or film, Cyclops and Mamoru lead an exploration of what liveness means today.
Integrating access languages into the performance is a key objective of the project.
This residency will form the final stage of its development.
