About the project
While at SU-Studio, in Barcelona we were asked to develop three interactive 3D scenes that the main Actor could interact with making use of his exo-skeletal suit. Project Description: POL is a story told by means of a mechatronic performance. It is an ironic and poetic fable for all ages, a scenic mutation resulting from the meshing of machines, images, sounds and performers. Initially POL was inspired by traditional European tales. We chose this genre simply because of its narrative form, and not out of any sort of fidelity to a tradition nor from a wishful throwback to stories heard in childhood. Traditional stories tend to have an economy of structure, a narrative rhythm and a sequence of events, and these magical, unexpected and disconcerting events are ideal for the construction of a personal visual world. They also reveal unexpected responses in the reactions to this show.
