The project aims to explore the psychological aspects of labour performativity as ‘system efficiency’ under the current neoliberal political system. The project engages this theme in a multi-dimensional show that merges expressive elements from computer animation and performance art via the medium of a Motion Capture suit. Taking place in both the virtual and in the physical worlds, the performance creates a symbolic scenario that conveys the violent dynamic to which the workforce is subjected. In its engagement with this topical theme, the project intends to foster a reflection on the ephemerality of performance as an impermanent, non-reproducible artwork. During the event, the audience will be given the chance to experience the performance through three different mediums.
