The Sx-Fi project was created by four residents from the LGBTQ+ community and supporting allies, who have formed the collective AMMZ Lab. Society still places a heavy burden on people whose sexuality falls outside of what’s seen as “normal.” Sx-Fi challenges the idea that gender and sexual norms are absolute or unchanging.
The audience is invited to enter a room in which a dancer is moving around against a background of sounds and images. The dancer’s costume reveals an indefinable human creature, and the spectators interact with the dancer’s performance using augmented reality (AR). Images are projected while recordings of speculative stories about sexuality are played. The stories are based on possible scenarios drawn from earlier workshops, which use a pack of cards to encourage participants to use their imagination and break free of contemporary normality, in order to create “sexuality-fictions.”
