Performance synopsis

Manipulation, play and puzzle are the key words connecting Wyrwał’s performance with the works of Kruger. ‘Double Trouble’ asks to what extent the current fashion and personal beliefs and preferences change the image of what we see. All in all, perception always comes to us deformed, and creating an ideal is nothing but mystification. ‘Double Trouble’ uses ‘smart wireless’ cubes which control and create live sound. Controlled by the touch of the dancers, they create a unique musical interface.
