The Category is…
Part laboratory, part sideshow-alley realness, The Category is… is BIFEM’s first ever immersive platform that invites audiences into an array of simultaneous activities across the Saturday of the festival. From individual audience immersion VR experiences to group participatory installations for 20 audience members, this suite of participatory works is an amazing collection of new explorations into the very nature of music and ritual, and remarkably all are FREE!
SATURDAY 7 SEPTEMBER
12:00PM – 8:00PM
ENTRY THROUGH THE CARRIAGE WAY
(between The Capital and The Engine Room)
Audición is a work for performer and a volunteer (that’s you!). The performance consists of two parts: wait and read. The performer guides the participant, slowly folding them into the piece, constantly awakening in them the imagery of a hypothetical situation of representation. This work is the first part of Chilean composer collective Oído Medio’s mini-residence at 2019 BIFEM.
Individual audience 10-minute sessions run between 12:00-2:30PM, 3:00-5:30PM and 6:00-8:00PM. Register on the day. Entry is via The Capital carriageway.
Fernanda MORALES, Performer

Oído Medio’s appearance at BIFEM is supported by the Ministerio de las Culturas, las Artes y el Patrimonio, Gobierno de Chile.
