#HybridTheatrePerformance #ZoomMatrix #InclusiveArt #Improvisations

premiered at the 31st macao arts festival in 2021 featuring an ensemble of neurodivergent performers from macao and switzerland, the never-ending task of lust for failure is an attempt to allow theatre to grow out of the playful pleasure of failure, out of pauses, insecurities and dead ends. in drawing from that which has failed, adventurous endeavours and dramatic improvisations are celebrated.

this macanese-swiss collaboration started rehearsals at the same time that the pandemic hit the world in 2020. while other artists may feel restricted about rehearsing via zoom, this ensemble turned technology such as tablets into tools to unleash their personal stories, ideas and desires; and projected the most personal onto a larger-than-life screen as a zoom-like matrix.

combining live theatre, music and technological gadgets, this is an empowering experiment for both the stage and the audience, and failure is just as much a component as success.
