Virophilia Dinner Performance Quarantine Edition
This project comes from a very simple question: Can we start to see the connotation of viruses differently, especially those that causes infectious diseases? The reason why such question is being asked has a very strong historical and scientific background. In biological definition, viruses, unlike bacteria, are not consider as ‘living’. It is due to the fact that viruses themselves do not equip with essential components that can facilitate their replication. In other words, viruses cannot replicate themselves. They are doomed to be the ‘parasites’ on living creatures, and human is one of them. When viruses borrow our cells as their replication factories, our body system become unstable, our body immune system reacts, and at the macro scale we get sick. Though the interaction is much more sophisticated than how we commonly understand.
2020 C-LAB NEXT: Story Park
C-LAB Political Warfare Building Square
This light sculpture is the result of the interaction of technology and the blending of lighting, visual, and acoustic effects. A historical weight has been borne by this site since the Japanese occupation era (1895-1945). Today, this cultural experimental venue possesses a cross-disciplinary experimental spirit and abundant artistic energy. All are invited to gather in this esthetic oasis within a concrete city. While here, escape the hecticness of daily life by entering a story park picnic, listening to music, watching a performance, viewing artworks, enjoying a relaxing evening, and experiencing new forms of art and culture.

Opening performance OPUS
C-LAB Art Space I Plaza
Here, perspective is used as a mode of representation and a system for the set design: the technique of photograms in which you scan and compose real images—here unfinished constructions in the south of Italy—with very different points of view. The 3D virtual décor will be modified live by the vibrations and distortions of the quartet.
Theatre of Flows
Experts and performers will lead the visitors on a seducing parcours through a series of thematically organised spaces. They appear as editing rooms featuring videos, photos, installations and other findings of a quotidian life full of paradox and the confusing reality of their origins, circumstances and consequences.
