EXIT is the result of the collaboration between Kris Verdonck and Alix Eynaudi, a solo in which Alix puts the audience to sleep…

The basis of this project is a question: in a traditional theatre set-up, using all the media at the theatre’s disposal (lighting, sound, movement, language, images, stage design, etc.), what influence can we have on the sensory perceptions of an audience? To what extent are artists capable of manipulating the spectator’s consciousness (and subconscious) using these theatrical means?

EXIT premiered on August 18th 2011 during the Über Lebenskunst festival in Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. Über Lebenskunst is an initiative project of the (German) Federal Cultural Foundation and Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
