Second Front's theatre of the absurd: Loosin' it

Posted by Bettina Tizzy

Works by Second Front aren't to everyone's taste, and they don't care. Since 2006, the members of this maverick performance group have been challenging our notions of virtual narrative and embodiment via "theatres of the absurd."

Losin' it was performed at RMIT Creative Media in Second Life® by Fau Ferdinand and Lizsolo Mathilde, with sound by Zeb Vindaloo. Machinima by Osprey Therian.

Caged and suspended, Fau and Lizsolo are looking for something most people take for granted.

That's performance art at it's best. Second Life really opens up new possibilities on that field.
