The original is unfaithful to the translation.
-- Jorge Luis Borges
We have had enough of living in square boxes. It's time to start from scratch: we take a black box theatre space and re-organise it into a space with holes in the walls. We animate it from a dead placeholder of objects into a living organism that breathes, moves, scratches, revolts and speaks. When it speaks, its language is part sound part image part darkness.
Intergalactic is a performance in which we build an intergalactic world and move the audience around without them ever leaving their seats.
Intergalactic was inspired by Jorge Luis Borges’ story Tlön Uqbar, Orbis Tertius - ‘a massive conspiracy to imagine (and thereby create) a world’.

‘Ten years ago, any symmetrical system whatsoever which gave the appearance of order — dialectical materialism, anti-Semitism, Nazism—was enough to fascinate men. (...) Useless to reply that reality, too is ordered.’ Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius, Jorge Luis Borges
