"Automatàrium"

SYNOPSIS: 

Automatàrium is an installation inspired by the fairground attraction of coin-activated automatons constructed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

In this installation, actors are located within individual booths made of wood and methacrylate (imitating the old buildings) and activated with coins that the audience inserts in a slot.

Once a coin is inserted, coloured bulbs light up and  circus music plays. The performers begin mimicking the robotic and cyclical movements of the automatons, enacting short  actions with elements of comedy, circus, magic, storytelling, song, mime…
