The most important thing is the blaze.

Enlightenment. Capital letter Idea.

There are a lot of small fish and there is one that is big.

The great moment. Yours only.

But self-fulfillment is an eternal trial period.

Thirst for knowledge

That may have the following side effects:

Difficulty breathing, chest-tingling.

If demons wake you up at every dawn you may ask:

Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

Or is this the archive of decay?

The choreographies of death?

A new subculture is born that buries its members alive.

Unbelievers. Outcasts who have ousted themselves.

Living-dead zombie children.

The most dangerous to society.

Hollow (choreographer Viktor Szeri, game designer Tamás Páll, and curator Gyula Muskovics) combines various media, technologies, and game mechanics to create immersive and liminal environments on the verge of virtual and physical reality. Hollow's performances and installations merge the methodologies of choreography and contemporary dance with poetics, augmented reality, and live action role-playing. Hollow is a shapeshifter; it leaks through the membrane of reality and embodies the universes beyond; it moves, melts and mutates according to the moment and the space it occupies; it is a crossroads where identities and stories dissolve and bleed into each other.

The Archive is an ongoing and evergrowing meta-project where Hollow's older worlds bleed into new ones. As a series of texts, objects, and performances it revolves around the inaccessibility of the future and how predictions shape our present.

They are based in Budapest, Hungary.
