Daydreaming while fully conscious. This could be a way of describing the state that Basle musician Tobias Koch and artist/dancer Thibault Lac create among their audience. Their aim is to deliver a live performance that is unconventional, even though the live performance genre is already unconventional in itself. Koch’s works for films, performances, theatre and visual arts have been played at the Centre Pompidou and the MoMa in New York, and in this new experiment, he delves into the blurred boundaries between fiction and reality. By the end, all we can really be sure of is that we have witnessed something special.
