Is there a world beyond the image? - ICONSCLASH"

When does something become an icon - an exaggerated image, exaggerated in its meaning, which immediately provokes its destruction? In the performative installation, the theater is staged as a temple, iconic form processes are questioned and their symbolic nature is played with. Performative actions condense into rituals, sculptural body images appear. Spherical soundscapes that intensify the movement and posture of the bodies create a choral sound tapestry. A live camera as an image machine involves all those present and becomes part of the choreography: ICONSCLASH, an event between image frenzy and iconoclasm.
