-A PARA-PARANOID THEATER PERFORMANCE-
Samuel Müller & Mor Dovrat
Inspired by the most absurd conspiracy theories we could find online, we ask ourselves-
What is reality? Maybe it's just a story we believe in so hard until we forget that's it's only a story?
In times of fake news, alternative facts, post-truth, disinformation and constant surveillance, how is it even possible NOT to be paranoid?
Using the body in the space as a main tool of expression, SATURN MACHINE is a glimpse at two people who are isolated in their own paranoia, and can´t tell the difference between reality and fiction. Their imagination becomes a threat. They begin to mistrust each other, themselves and even to doubt their own existence as performers in front of the public.
Is everything a mere simulation? Is the Saturn Machine responsible? Or maybe it´s the theate´s fault because of its cubic shape?
