DELIRIUM 27 (2008 / 2010)
In an unknown amount of time, under the hum of the electric lights, a fever takes hold of Ode Black, who is being held under investigation for a crime. On the border of a breakdown, remnants of his former life blur the lines of memory, imagination and forgotten thoughts, while humor becomes his only compass out of the darkness.
DELIRIUM 27 is an investigation of the struggle to regain one’s bearings after loss, and its distorting effect on interpreting the past. Diverse design and performance elements build a multilayered dramaturgy depicting a mind grappling to reconstruct memories.
