IMPAKT Festival 1998
13 May - 17 May
IMPAKT once again presents a programme which combines unexpected elements and obscure boundaries. Consider ‘Illuminated Baroque’, which explores and reveals the relationships between current ‘rave’ culture and 18th Century artforms. The theatre’s programme titled ‘Pornography’, which reveals the commercial attempts at sexual arousal, turn out to be a source of inspiration for remarkable amount of film makers and musicians. ‘Spiritworld’ propagates the Internet as the force that should bring about a more balanced relationship between Eastern and Western music cultures. The distinction between film and radio-play, between video presentation and musical performance disappears in ‘Voice-Image’. The project ‘couch.club’ upgrades the screening of film and video, normally speaking a relatively dull experience for an interactive event.
