CRICOTERIE

Adam Mickiewicz Institut, Tale of Tales

28.9.–7.10.2018

CRICOTERIE is a virtual reality application and installation that immerses the user in the bizarre world of the late Polish stage director Tadeusz Kantor. CRICOTERIE isn’t a digital version of any particular play, but a collection of objects and characters to be freely manipulated by the user. In this way, the user plays the role of Kantor, who was always present on stage to direct the spectacle. On a virtual stage inspired by the legendary Polish director, users could bring strange objects and grotesque actors to life. Another episode that matched the thematic range and quality craftsmanship of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK 2018’s Guest Country, Poland.
