A Monsters Odyssey
Time to Meet · Open Studio
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017
This performance opens up a speculative and playful enquiry into the future and technological otherness as a further extrapolation on non-human life, monster and non-namable phenomena. “A monsters Odyssey” arises from science fiction films and robotics research and is set in a futuristic landscape inspired by the meeting of nature and technology. Sadler starts her radical liberation of the imaginary with the monster figure and its related mythologies. Her idea of ‘monster’ is understood not only figuratively but also conceptually as that which leaks out and transgresses the boundaries between body, object and space producing relationships between them in strange and uncanny ways.
