Same Difference is a mixed media and interactive piece in development at Theatre Conspiracy lead by Associate Artist David Mesiha. The project is a multi-faceted undertaking with a large number of components including an audio / visual Interactive installation, immersive performance piece, a newly created chamber piece of music as well as a podcast series.
Same Difference examines how identity is created through perceptions of Sameness and Difference, and how we develop a sense of belonging. It delves deep into themes of self alienation, isolation, togetherness and otherness. The team will be using interactive and immersive audio visual design to place the audiences within the world of the piece. The immersive design will constantly challenge audience notions of self, self-awareness, self-alienation and perception of what’s real and what’s not. The most basic assumptions about how we view ourselves and others are to be completely undermined and challenged.
