A visual, musical and literary trip about the human desire to test and overstep his boundaries.
Empedokles is based on the play Der Tod des Empedokles by the famous German poet Friedrich Hölderlin and on recent developments in philosophy, transhumanism, science and technology.
Empedokles will be directed by Koen van Kaam and Jorgen Cassier and performed by four actresses and singers: Sofie Decleir, Katrin Lohmann, Sarah Eisa, Kaat Hellings, and by guitarist / composer Bert Dockx.
A major feature will be live audio and video manipulation by the performers. Therefore a new application is being developed by Hangaar.net, as well as the original video content.
Der Tod des Empedokles will have its world premiere in Theater Zuidpool, Antwerp, may 2014, and will tour in 2014 and 2015.
