M.I.S.S. – MY INTERN(ATION)AL SPACE STATION
With their new performance project M.I.S.S. – My Intern(ation)al Space Station Stephanie Winter and SALON HYBRID make their way into the orbit of the imaginary White Planet. Together with the audience they explore this fictive planet on a theoretical as well as performative level.
The White Planet is not only located in outer space, but also becomes manifest in the mind of its observers. It is a kind of primal singularity, origin, source and storage of all information, collective memory, common organ. It is also a projection screen for different concepts, ideas and visions for our future.
The White Planet has not yet been explored from close proximity. Only the M.I.S.S. Corporation was able to develop a technique to proceed into its surrounding area. Now it has dispatched M.I.S.S. – My Intern(ation)al Space Station into the orbit of the White Planet. There the impact and influence of this imaginary celestial object on the humans is examined under particular conditions.
The route to M.I.S.S. is a well-kept secret. The journey starts in a bar in the district of Meidling in Vienna. After the check-in at the reception the probands are picked up and taken to the transfer station to be transported into the mental orbit in a specially constructed capsule. Having arrived at the M.I.S.S., the probands connect with the White Planet through different physical exercises and thought experiments, while the crew leads them into their own universe.
