Homo Avatar is inspired by the countless digital alter-ego’s that roam the internet. Nowadays it is for everyone possible to create a perfect and controllable ‘avatar’ online. But the internet can also show intimate parts of your life which you maybe did not want to share. The performers project an image of themselves in an intimate setting to the audience. Accompanied by a slow and crude technobeat they start to puppeteer their ‘avatar’, morphing and distorting their image into strange, hypnotising creatures that literally come very close to the viewer.
