Are humans able to find a sense of peace in a world without objective meaning? Part ridiculous vaudeville routine, part media-based information presentation and part audio/visual nightmare, SISYPHUS IN VIOLENT TORMENT is a surreal journey into the absurd.
Slapstick, chaotic and philosophical, the work attempts to expose the human pattern of investing feelings of hope or fear into non-physical ideas and ideologies. Such as individual belonging, religion, spirituality, myth, philosophy, art, nationalism, communication, identity, control/influence, astrology, science, technology and power.
