The show will open today Fira de Tàrrega will be “Compra’m”, by the company Insectotròpics, one of the winners in the Future Internet-Performing Arts contest, which Direcció de Creativitat i Innovació de l’institut de Cultura de Barcelona recently awarded. The show will be performed in Tarrega today at 22 am, tomorrow at 23 pm, and Saturday at midnight.
‘Compra’m’ is a show which combines in real time video, painting, music and drama as live cinema. According to the company, Compra’m’ is a ‘fascinating journey, though maybe also horrific, where each of us has to choose their parameters for finding a place and becoming aware. The show presents a confrontation between two faces which define each of us within society, where one is given away happiness and pressured to be happy’. In ‘Compra’m’, Insectotròpics use a wide range of visual effects applied to different video signals, negatives, keying, blend mode, buffer recorders and random. ‘These effects allow us to access new dimensions, which would be impossible without this technologies, and, what is more important, favours the show’s conceptual discourse. They aren’t exclusively esthetic effects but they are placed at the service of a narrative’, the company explained.
As for innovation in the show, Insectotròpics told ‘the sum of art and technology doesn’t improve or revamp the creative discourse, it just provides many expressive possibilities’. ‘Technology is a tool which should be used to break down barriers and share individual artistic disciplines. Technology should enable open doors to new artistic disciplines, to new rules of the game of creation. Artists shouldn’t only talk to themselves but also be able to listen to and interact with other members in the group’, Insectotròpics stated.
