Organizer of Science in Theatre Festival

TRANSFORMA Theatre

Science. Consciousness. Interactive Theatre

 

 

Do you live in the gut of YouTube and Ted? Are you a junkie of cognitive orgasms? Do you wonder and amaze as aspects of science fiction are becoming reality? Join us at​ our theatre where performances are paired with live scientific demonstrations right in front of you and we create new realities with immersive high tech including you as a participant! We are here to blow your mind and create unique ecstatic group experiences.

Who we are

Transforma Theatre is a center where art tackles how scientific ideas and metaphysical knowledge about consciousness overlap. We explore the nature of existence and consciousness through science and shamanic rituals and express them through the creation of multimedia performances. We are pioneering a new form of theatrical expression and developing a close community of artists and scientists instilled with the freedom of thinking and creating in alternative ways. We engage in practises such as yoga, mindfulness, meditation, ceremonies and shamanic journeying and live one with nature to elevate our perception and knowledge about humans, universe and how it all works.

Why we are here

Our way of living, communicating, and computing has changed drastically in the last decade with possibilities to reprogram one’s brain and create new senses. Our goal is to align forms of theater with current scientific research in neuroscience, artificial intelligence, epigenetics, and communicate this knowledge of technological possibilities to our audiences (millennials, science aficionados and theatre goers) in a new pioneering way of storytelling.

 

We are seeking to expand the understanding of consciousness and share this enlightenment through art.
