DATADREAM is a new solo by and with Steven Michel in which he explores how technology affects the body and the psyche in relation to reality, spirituality and alterity.
Conceived as a cyberdelic experience, he invites us on a very personal, physical and spiritual journey, which unfolds within a multimedia environment interacting in real time. Using visualization, as well as the voice and the body, Steven orients himself through altered states of consciousness, mental maps, flowing identities and speculative fictions, in order to literally stretch and fold the boundaries of the self. A techno-archaic environment takes shape under our very eyes, haunting us with the idea that humans have always been travelers who access parallel worlds through the mind and the collective unconscious, therefore creating their own reality. In a world that more and more demands subscription, registration and tracking, can one not step away and experience again the pleasure and joy and danger to trespass into completely virtual, imaginary and invisible realms?
