8ROJO is proud to make its London debut at the VAULT festival presenting the visual performance 'The Lost Hours'.
Based on the childhood memoirs of Salvador Dalí and his sister Ana María, ‘The Lost Hours’ is an installation performance simulating a dark ride for a single audience member at a time. The performance features visuals in motion based on Dalí's theories of space and dimension, involving the audience in a unique interactive environment.
'The Lost Hours' combines performance art, mask work, and physical theatre to portray the vibrancy reflected within our early childhood moments. A fantastical plea to the ticking clock of life where all of the audience's senses are challenged in order to internalize the experience. A reawakening to moments when time was our best friend, when an afternoon playing could last as long as we desired. Then to face our ultimate challenge: watching the extinction of our innocence fading into the inevitable.
'The Lost Hours' received the 'Innovation in Performance' award at the 2016 STOFF Festival in Stockholm, Sweden, 'The Lost Hours’ represented Canada at the 2ème Biennale of Mime and Gesture in Paris, France, in 2017.Book Now
