By blocking out the sense of sight, a clearly more pronounced acoustic, sometimes also olfactory as well as haptic experience of the arts emerges. In the lightless space, space is created for an (often unexpected) intensified perception of external stimuli and internal processes. These diverse sensations permeate one's own body, one's own thoughts, one's own feelings.
In addition, many ritualised and familiar processes (such as applause) are unhinged and often present themselves differently than usual in the course of the performance. In a society that tries to illuminate darkness as permanently as possible, this series offers the rare opportunity to experience darkness in a new aesthetic context.
