Much has been written about filter bubbles and echo chambers recently. What is so often forgotten in related discussions is that these phenomena also serve as reinforcers, as so-called safe spaces – they’re places of retreat and cooperation, and in which external aggression (as it occurs in daily life in the form of numerous isms) is absent. These spaces are also threatened by the resurgence of reactionary movements.

It’s with this experience and understanding in mind that the American musician Haley Fohr, aka Circuit des Yeux, will work together with the stage designer Kelly Tivnan to build an anechoic chamber, a literal »Big Black Box« right in the physical heart of the festival, in the courtyard of the Kulturbrauerei. In the chamber, which is inspired by the vocal experiments of the legendary Diamanda Galas, visitors will be invited to test and challenge their own voices, and Fohr will perform her magical Circuit des Yeux odes to otherness.
