An exploded film screening, Citizen asks how realities are constructed within a mediatised society. The discourse of digitized media can be re-imagined via the narrative tools of both the cinema and the theatre.
During the evening, artists will explore the possibility of breaking down the illusory plane between reality and fiction. Linear narratives that unfold over a specified duration, time as a malleable object (stretched and compressed via editing), cacophonous displays in real time, explosions of simultaneous occurrences – these are the encounters of interest.
