Live stream Arielle F

Simon Senn

In this digital conference, Simon Senn, a videographer and visual artist from Geneva, demonstrates how the virtual world and the real world are not always in opposition, revealing the unexpected entanglements between technology, representation, gender, and law.

The sanitary crisis caused by the Covid-19 epidemic forced the Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne to close its doors on 13 March 2020, just a few days before the performances of Be Arielle F were due to start. Simon Senn, however, refused to give up his connection with the audience and developed a version of the performance specifically adapted to the ‘at-home’ confinement situation that the fight against the virus had imposed. He invited a limited number of spectators into his home to watch this live digital performance for audience members and artists in lockdown, in a virtual living room, by way of a webinar on the video-conference app Zoom.
