I/II/III/IIII is a new theatrical installation by the performance artist Kris Verdonck. As always in his work he has again drawn on spectacular contemporary technological developments for his inspiration.
In I/II/III/IIII four identical dancers will perform a choreographic work while suspended in a kind of giant puppet theatre: they will be attached like marionettes to a machine that directs their movements. They perform exactly the same dance in synchronisation until one of them makes a mistake, until one of them starts moving more slowly than the others… until ‘failure’ changes the robots back into humans again.
