Bombina Bombast

CONTROL is a one-to-one performance using virtual reality to place you in the centre of a horror film from within the protagonist’s body. You are no longer yourself, but a person struggling to stay in control of the experiment facing you. You are hereby warned. Maybe this is too much for you. Or, maybe this madness is pure knowledge and you are finally set free.

CONTROL was first performed as part of Bombina Bombast’s The Dreambox, a game for 20 participants and 20 artists.

Bombina Bombast are a Malmö-based performing arts company founded in 2011.
