As part of Torn Space’s Original Production Series our artistic exploration and development has continued for this new version of last seasons fascinating Area.This show attempts to illustrate the nuances of a world lost to simulation.
In Area we follow a young girl as she enters an environment of images that are at times alluring and sometimes shocking. Although she experiences moments of terror she does not turn back, but remains in search of some unattainable end. As her journey continues, we watch as her past begins to fade obscured by the lens of this new world.
Then a crime is committed. There are questions that need answering.
Her response could reconnect her with her ever-distant past or condemn her to a constant state of unfulfilled desire – in a region of indefinite boundary.
