Phoenix invites the audience to unpick the hidden correspondence of dark rooms and black boxes. Beyond representation; basically, that is the substance environment where Phoenix leads us. It explores the endless potentiality of reality blurring darkness in a decentralized, immersive cruising labyrinth, where looped scenes happen all around. In Phoenix the methodologies of dance, role-playing, poetics, sound, AR, and live streaming are combined to break the line between realities, making the spectators get lost in the Minotaur’s maze. It revolves around the politics of desire and ecstasy, the difficulties of intimacy and the normative structures evolving in today’s queer scenes. Meanwhile it raises the questions: what can be experienced with the public and how can something be expressed publicly that is usually hidden and secret?
