SCIENCE-FICTION . SOLARPUNK . EXPLORATION
10+ years old
Duration: 60 – 90 min
In the distant future, human and non-human animals share the land. They communicate. You move differently. You have a different sense of space.
Equipped with new senses and affects, you explore the transformed space that Thionville will become. The stories that emerge are sometimes peaceful and beautiful, and sometimes terrible. Khôra offers a narrative, polyphonic and poetic experience of weird fiction, which is naturalistic. With several vocal and musical layers, the material is different depending on when you embark on it. Khôra means ‘territory’ in Greek. For Plato, the Khôra is space in the making, unstable and moving. It lies between being and non-being. A formless substance containing all possibilities.
As part of the ‘hIAtus’ (Human Intelligence Artificial Earth Utopia Science) exhibition organised by the Puzzle in Thionville. Created for Esch2022, European Capital of Culture, Khôra is the pilot episode of the digital audio literary saga In the field, the other episodes of which will be available from February 2022.
