‘Decomposition Symphony’ is the project that Robert-Paul Jansen produced at the Grand Theatre Groningen in the context of his one-year ‘Station Noord’ trajectory, a collaboration of several theatres in the north of the Netherlands to give young theatre professionals the opportunity to develop their skills with great artistic freedom.
For this production, Robert-Paul asked me to take care of the multimedia part of the performance – namely, composition of the music, the visuals and the programmed interactivity.
The result of our working period in the studio of the Grand Theatre was a show which involved a 3 x 3 m videocube, which surrounded the live play by Robert Paul for most parts of the show; the visuals were mainly transformed live images.
‘Decomposition Symphony’ is a performance about letting go of standard ways of perception of reality, truth and the fear of becoming what you fear most [excuse my bad translation..]
