SATURN MACHINE - suspension of disbelief
-A PARA-PARANOID THEATER PERFORMANCE-
by Samuel Müller & Mor Dovrat
It's a glimpse at two people who are isolated in their own paranoia, and can´t tell the difference between reality and fiction. Their
imagination becomes a threat. They begin to mistrust each other, themselves and even to doubt their own existence as performers in front of the public. Is everything a mere simulation? Is the
Saturn Machine responsible? Or maybe it´s the theater´s fault because of its cubic shape?
Inspired by the most absurd conspiracy theories we could find online, we ask ourselves - What is reality? Maybe it's just a story we believe in so hard until we forget that's it's only a story?
In a time of fake news, alternative facts, post-truth, disinformation and constant surveillance, how is it even possible not to be paranoid?
