Kiel & Meppelink

How can VR be experienced without putting on VR glasses? A person stands on stage in front of a large screen. The audience watches her as she exposes herself to the immersion of virtual worlds.

She looks into her past as a daughter, mother, partner, actress. Simulated fragments of memories: The big snowstorm. A bicycle trip. A father flying a kite in the garden. The role of Lady Macbeth.

A cascade of intertwined, immersive memory spaces emerges. A reality matroshka that begins with an inner-immersive play of the performer, continues through the virtual reality construction and the peculiar reality of a theater stage into the reality constructions of this world.


Rabea Kiel and Adolfina Fuck (Matthias Meppelink) have a longstanding collaboration, through Applied Theater Studies in Giessen and with the performance group Monster Truck. Since 2021, the duo has been exploring the medium of virtual reality as a performative tool with the aim of a productive misappropriation for theater.
