The Closed Circuit is an intermedial theater performance that technology, including CCTV Cameras and TV monitors are playing their role in this show. The show is somehow in between theater, dance and technology.
The Closed Circuit, is around the notion of identity and its re-presentation. It uses the identity of some very young actors whose recording a tape by the closed circuit cameras of their university for a famous film director. They’re rehearsing their audition for him. While playing this game we see that they are looking for fame, money and success in their career, we watch their dreams: the acting dream. They are playing a game with stealing superstars’ identity, weather locals or international ones, they’re copying them, acting as them. Then the game goes further while they’re moving on to steal each other’s identity. The question remains: Whose identity is more original and what will remain for us after all these?
