Glass Meet The Future Film Festival 2021

Simone Frezer, Germany


20 march 2021 - 04 april 2021


Assimilate! is a movie-performance, filmed at night within an 8-meter high, haphazardly constructed crystal-palace. A protagonist clothed in wearable structures of sheet glass and mirrors, almost indiscernible from the surrounding installation, is moving about it, – partially
assimilating to the point of near dissolution, then again breaking free, scaling, tearing, breaking, all in dancelike motions. The performance is adding its own sound-elements to the especially composed soundtrack by Ele Runge. Stage-lighting creates an almost abstract, black-and-white- atmosphere focusing on restriction, adaptation, reflection, perspectives, and the complex layering of reality as well as the, – possibly aggressive – aim at its deconstruction.


Concept and performance – Simone Frezer, Film and sound composition – Ele Runge, Lighting design – Georg Wedelstaedt

Supported and filmed at the Glass Museum Frauenau 2021.
