Play Underground

Underground parking garage of National Theatre

Premiéra 18. 6. 2015, Prague Quadrennial

Concept: Jan Mocek, Táňa Švehlová
Direction, video, sound: Jan Mocek

Underground parking garage is a typical scenery for a violent action movie scenes. But what happens if the participants are asked to step into the actor´s shoes and be a part of the plot without any distance? What role within a story do they actually play? Who is the observer and who the subject of observation? What is the difference between subject and object here? Spectators are provided with iPad and binaural headphones to follow 20 minutes walk through the underground site.
Physical space is remapped by pre-recorded video, which serves as a guide through the location and at the same time unfolds the narrative of the piece. Unusual immersive experience comes out of merging real and virtual space into one independent augmented reality.
