BY Lisa Wilson & Nathan Sibthorpe
We are reminded of our frailty in a world where utter destruction is not only possible, it’s threatened offhandedly in a tweet. Where do we find refuge amidst the potential chaos? How do we construct the illusion of safety in a climate of fear? And when do we begin to believe the panic online?
Bunker combines dance, video projection, original music, and visual design to explore the physical threat of virtual alarm. As we slowly learn the physical repercussions of digital fear, this work draws influence from sinister Russian propaganda, false missile alerts, designer bunkers and the fake news epidemic.
This new work in development will be intellectually rigorous and artistically daring, using hybrid art forms and collaborating with exceptional artists in their respective fields.
