獨處於異空間的人，與不智能的人工智能共同籌劃一場完美的葬禮。《Artificial Loneliness》是由北京Floating Moment戲劇工作室創始人之一黃鏡璇帶領創作的當代表演作品，亦是她第二部催眠夢境戲劇。在劇場空間，體驗非常態的觀演關係，浮沉於現實與戲劇現場的離間與連結。
A recluse in ‘other space’ is planning a perfect funeral together with the unintelligent artificial intelligence. Artificial Loneliness is a contemporary performance created under the lead of Huang Jingxuan, co-founder of the theatre studio Floating Moment in Beijing. It is also her second hypnotic ‘dream-based theatre’. It offers the audience an unusual theatre-watching experience, mesmerizing them between reality and the theatre, their connects and disconnects.
Huang obtained a Master's degree in Contemporary Performance Practice and a certificate in Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy in London. She is dedicated to multi-media performance, the use of hypnosis in theatre and the exploration of ‘dream-based theatre’.
In Artificial Loneliness, an actor, an on-site music producer and an artificial intelligence device represented by an Theremin* will lead you into the ‘other space’ for self-exploration.
*Theremin was invented by the Russian inventor Léon Theremin (1896-1993) a hundred years ago as one of the first electronic musical instruments, which can be played by moving the hands in the air.
A young theatre group in Mainland China, launched at 9:59pm on February 12th 2017 by Huang Jingxuan and Tian Yuhe following their return to the country, with a commitment to developing contemporary performances and drama therapy.
Floating refers to something ethereal, transient but always with surprises;
Moment refers to every fleeting present moment.
