Three Degrees from Reality is an interdisciplinary proposal that invites broad audiences to reflect on how we practically experience reality nowadays. The public will be starring in this work, which will unfold according to their decision-making in relation to given directions. The participants will also be hosted and guided throughout the performance by the musicians/performers of Modelo62. All of them share agency in the generation and creation of the piece. As a result, Three Degrees from Reality is one piece and three works of art at the same time, combining the physical and digital spheres in a hybrid way. It is a system open and flexible enough in which performers and audiences can collectively experience reality with different approaches in a metaphorical way.
In the run-up to their sold-out performance on October 15, we spoke to Ezequiel Menalled, Luz Lassizuk and Yolanda Uriz of Modelo62 about this special work. Yolanda Uriz: “Audiences have different approaches towards the piece, but the common message we got from them is that the piece is a unique experience because they are involved in creating the piece as well.”
