Audiovisual & Physical Performative Experience
We have a clear idea of what we think memories are. We trust our memory and believe that everything we remember is true, but that is not always the case. Sometimes we create fake memories. Sometimes we believe that we experienced something that never happened, or happened to someone else. Memories are not as reliable as we imagine.
At the start of the experience the spectator is invited to think and write down a word in a paper. This word has to refer to a personal memory they can't remember clearly anymore. From this moment, the spectator is left alone to start the experience. Using an audio and some headphones, the audience is guided through different spaces where they experience different scenes. Each one of these scenes allows the spectator to reflect, wonder or explore the idea memories.
At the end of the experience, the spectator faces the un unexpected and starts to question not only the accuracy of old memories but also the reliability of what they think they just experienced.
