    THE OTHER LIFE PROJECT

    5-8 OF SEPTEMBER

Welcome to The Other Life Project

5 days in the Dome of Visions
What happens when a group of people leave their names and stories behind and explore identity and reality together?

6 performers will live in the Dome of Visions for 5 days and immerse themselves in the search for new and more sensuous ways of being. As audience you get to spectate their process or move further into self-exploration

An anti-performance
The Other Life Project is fundamentally about being and becomming together. With that focus it moves away from most performances and the focus on performers entertaining and audience. In that, the performance-installation is not very spectacular, but rather celebrates the small, intimate meetings between people.

The Other Life Project is fundamental research into the self of both the artists and audience. It is an opportunity to experience yourself sensing and being in new ways and is open for everyone who feels like playing with opening up the boxes that we call “identity” and “reality”.

Audience experience
The Other Life is a space where people can reflect upon and experiment with identities, interaction and being. They can take control over or loose themselves in attempts to develop new understandings of what it is possible to be and do, individually or together with others.

As audience you are invited into an ethnographic study of another reality. One where stories about life is less important and the immediate, sensuous experience is in focus. You are invited to spectate the process of the performers, to participate in workshops or to immerse yourself in the exploration together with us.

Process
The Other Life Project was created in 2015 and has since then been staged more than 15 times at different venues in Northern Europe. The performance in the Dome of Visions is the last and longest installation of The Other Life Project.

Spectate

In the Dome you will find traces of the processes of the performers. You will see letters hanging from trees, drawings hanging on the walls and if you find it, you will be able to view the video logs that are produced during the event.

You can do this at all times during your stay. The performers will not interact with you if you do not initiate contact yourself.

Participate

Every day at 14.00 and 18.00 the performers will host a public workshop in the Dome. The workshop will be largely improvised, but based on the theme of the day.

Immerse

You can choose to immerse yourself in the experience together with the performers. You do this by asking a question.

“what is it like to be you right now?”

“what are you doing?”

You can also choose to bring a gift. Something that can be shared. It could be a meal, an exercise a secret or whatever you can think of. This is a good way to move into an immersive experience with one or two of the artists.

Performers

These people will leave their names behind and live in The Other Life Project for 5 days.
