site-specific interactive theatre. This was by far their largest set ever, covering
an area of approx. 160000 sqm.
De Upplysta was a sci-fi version of Joseph Conrads ӈeart of DarknessӠand was an immersive 3 hours performance where my electronic and vocal music was present during the whole play. The actual play was something in-between theatre, performance and a dance piece.
releasing some of the electronic music later this year as well as a score of
the vocal music.
