an interactive Futurelaboratory
In the year 2035: for the first time, an artificial intelligence is curating the Impulse Theatre Festival. – Deepfake Impulse imagines the (still) impossible. Interrobang builds utopian future scenarios from the remnants and sound tracks of past festival editions. To do so, the group digs deep into the acoustic archive of the festival’s 30-year history: performance recordings, media contributions and interviews are reassembled in an interactive audio installation. Using headphones and key controls, visitors embark on acoustic journeys through time. The future archive, which grows daily over the course of the Impulse ACADEMY, can be explored by the audience and, if they wish, expanded and shaped by audio snippets they have produced themselves.
