Becoming Animal by Minimaforms

Becoming Animal is an interactive performance piece developed by Minimaforms for this years Faster than Sound Festival in Bentwaters’ K9 building in Suffolk, England. The project develops the story of the mythical three headed beast Kerberos, guardian of the underworld.

The objective of the piece is to create an environment of performance through the collective participation and conversation of the Kerberos and participants in the event. Each participant’s presence stimulates the three heads of the Kerberos triggering behavioral interactions and exchanges. Interactions are expressed through sounds, facial expressions and general activity of the Kerberos. The continued dialogue between users and the Kerberos will demonstrate emotions such as love, hate and anger. Participants are given custom dog masks and are encouraged to interact with the Kerberos and each other. This collective playfulness will construct interactions that evolve and Become Animal.
