At the Drop Zone performance evening, Frédéric Krauke will use all five rooms of HaL's front gallery to present a cycle of scenes he developed especially for this occasion. Each of the five rooms stands for one state in mankind's allegorical evolution ending up at an ultimately visionary stage: Paradise - Doom - Fall - Purification - Neo Plasma
Boundaries become blurred at this performance - between what is staged and what is real, between what is symbolic and what is existential. What are human beings? What are they made of? Have they become mirrors, projections of emotions, fears and dreams?
Frédéric Krauke can look back on many years of experience as a performance artist. He reflects on current political and societal events in his actions. He transforms feelings of being powerless in the face of what is happening around him into scenarios intended in particular to challenge viewers' empathy.
The immediate actions of the player in tune with music played live and accompanied by digital projections are the basic elements of this performance. Interaction and how the audience emotionally copes with what they are witnessing are integral components of the performance.
A team of musicians, artists, technicians, and helpers familiar to the artist will support Frédéric Krauke during Drop Zone.
Please note: The performance contains scenes that are not suitable for children and teenagers. Proof of age may be requested at the entrance when necessary.
