In 1933 Erwin Schrödinger won the Nobel Prize for his contribution to Quantum Mechanics. He theorized a box in which a cat exists as living and dead at the same time. In 1998 Reckless Sleepers built that box – and now over a decade later, they are climbing back inside.
In one of the company’s most celebrated performance pieces the impossible is probable, and truth and illusion are inseparable. Laws are made, bent and then broken. Schrödinger is a visually mesmerizing performance that sways between question and answer, chaos and order, what we can measure and what we cannot.
Founded in 1989, Anglo-Belgian company Reckless Sleepers is a creative organisation dedicated to the production, presentation and development of innovative and experimental visual art and performance. Reckless Sleepers have produced many highly original performance pieces and created educational programmes for many groups including The National Museum of Scotland. They have a committed audience both in the UK and in Europe.
‘An alluring blend of philosophical richness and hypnotic visuals are used to explore giant concepts with a stylish lightness.****’ The Guardian
