Throughout the course of cultural history, sleep is a phenomenon that has been mythologized and mystified over and over. To this day, its exact function and the physiological processes underpinning it are not completely understood. Alexander Schubert, a protagonist of multi-media composition projects, dedicates himself to the topic on an artistic level in a complex arrangement. At the Tanzfaktur in Deutz, he will install a sleep laboratory for three days. It is comfortably appointed and features lots of advanced audio, video and computer technology. His »performative installation« places visitors within a virtual reality, including out-of-body experiences and autoscopy, in which participants swap perspectives and become objects of their own perception. Toying with our senses, the reliability of our consciousness and the poetry of dreaming, the event is musically led and accompanied by United Instruments of Lucilin, the most well-known new music ensemble in Luxembourg.
