Hunting Boghor is a sci-fi audio-visual performance that combines experimental 16mm film projection with a live electro-acoustic music performance, unfolding in the "rumble of a dying universe". The premiere of a new piece by creative trio Rouš-Šmitmajer-Týmal.
The basic building block of visuals is the authorial sci-fi film, complemented by found and handmade film material. The staged part is based on the short story of the same name, dealing with the destruction of humanity, which was written by Jiří Rouš's brother in his boyhood. This text is composed as a tribute to the sci-fi genre and to sci-fi films from the beginning of the 20th century in particular. The music part of the performance is based on live sampling and sound reconstruction, and is an improvisation by all three authors, and the projectionist. The special projection system, based on acoustic pressure produced by woofers, allows the musicians live modification of film images as well as the interconnection of both parts of the performance into one compact unit. The viewer can watch the action on the screen and the acrobatic skills of the projectionist, who struggles with two or more projectors, combining discs and optical effects.
Hunting Boghor will bring an intense experience that can be overwhelming and fascinating, but due to the use of a powerful sound system it can also be physically unpleasant for the viewer. The space mercenary Trei Stallar adds this to the mission: "I'm a little bit nervous, since I have not hunted Boghor yet and from what I've read, the creature is not exactly nice. The locals in the galaxy through the wormhole fear it. That's why they call us."
