MPO I’m Here Where You Are

‘MPO: I’m Here Where You Are’ is a title that plays with the idea of visibility and presence: it is an affirmation of presence, yet when delved deeper can seem question-like. When read as a question, people on different planes in the same space can communicate with each other, while not possibly be able to see each other.

‘MPO: I’m Here Where You Are’ is an interactive immersive music theatre, exploring the idea of moving together in spaces where multiple universes may sometimes collide. The audience-participants will interact and create in part, the performance with their mobile phones.

The idea of separate planes can be conceptualized as the performer-artist plane, the plane that is the collective of audience-participants, and individual audience participant plane. The performance achieves this by inviting the audience-participants in group fashion, to react to and create with the pre-existing events designed by the performer artist, emphasizing on the experience of living and being aware of one’s own presence within the larger context of the collective, and the differences in power and therefore visibility between the individual and the collective and their ability to effect change.
