|THE LOW DOWN:
About the DVD:
A stunning array of images derived from a
theatre play based on the Major Tom myth, using cutting-edge technology
to generate a hypnotic maelstrom of picture and sound.
A Dj/Vj-set, echoing musical history and the visions of a future as
seen in the seventies, when men walked the moon and space was a promise and a
threat at the same time.
While science in its visual form becomes more abstract, in its attempt to explain things that are invisible for the human eye
(molecules, nano- and gene-technelogy),the images used in the science fiction genre films, in video clips on mtv and other
music programmes shows the perfect body in all its varieties. In these examples, the mutation has already taken place -
every popstar is a virtual cyborg - a media mutant!
This DVD is based on the play "Major Tom Science Fiction Performance" by Christian Wiehle. The world premiere was June
2002 at Kampnagel theatre, Hamburg
Theater...: (Backround information)
What happened to Major Tom?
Lost in the infinity of space, shot out into the pop universe of David Bowie in 1969, the legendary spaceman returns in the
middle of the twenty-first century. Major Tom (performed by Wobine Bosch) finds himself again in a room full of cabinets,
hardly bigger than a space capsule. This SHELF-MADE ROOM becomes the starting point of a futuristic journey through the
identities `in the age of the technical reproducibility of the body`. -Christian Wiehle
