Inferno by Louis-Philippe Demers & Bill Vorn

Inferno is a robotic performance project by Philippe Demers and Bill Vorn. The specificity of this performance project resides in the fact that the different machines involved in the show will be installed on the viewers' body. The public will then become an active part of the performance. Depending of the kind of mechanism that they will be wearing, the viewers will be free to move or they will be in a partial or entire submission position, forced by the machines to act/react in a certain way. Some mechanical structures will coerce the viewers in performing certain movements; others will induce a physical reaction from them.
