The performance “White Noise” is set in a constantly changing landscape, where the shape and function of the minimalistic stage continuously is altered and where the objectives the performers try to achieve keep changing as well. In past decade we witnessed the proliferation of the communication devices and services. Happily embracing the new technologies and means of exchanging information, it becomes increasingly more difficult to stay uninfluenced by the knowledge that is accessible to us every day at the push of a button.
In “White Noise”, the House of Bertha collective examines the mechanisms and quality of communication that occurs today and in what way it influences who we are and what we think. How our identity is altered by the volume of information to which we have access and whether the increased quantity of shared information results in better quality of knowledge as well.
Based on the results of the process, the collective forms a micro society on stage using the outcomes that communication or miscommunication produced, and highlights the impact it has on who they are and who they are perceived.
