PETER VAN TIL SAYS:
As a performer, I make extensive use of Audiovisual images and New Media. The
main part of my work can be described as: Digital Media Performances, bordering on
compelling Audiovisual Shows. In these performances I try to use state of the Art
technology as much as possible.

Video Art Technology and a live interaction with the audience go hand in hand. One
could call it ‘the noble Art to overwhelm’. The virtual presence and the digital
multiplication c.q. abstract deformation of myself as a performer are important
aspects of my work. All of these aspects blend together in projections
and the interaction with myself as a live performer.

The content and style of my performances are based on the themes and iconography
of all the mayor religions. The final performance could be characterized as an
abstract, a cross-religious sermon. I was raised in a Christian religious village
in the North of Holland. From this background I was able to develop a self-willed vision and framework on religion as a source of themes, stories and iconography.
What fascinates me deeply are the paintings originating from the early Renaissance,
for example the works of: Fra Filipo Lippi and Fra Angelico, but also Jean Fouqet and
Sandro Botticelli. The religiosity and the symbolic content of these works are often
referred to in my performances/installations. In my use of visual deformations, the
resulting images bear some resemblance to the abstract patterns of Islamic art and
the richly colored imagery of Hindu art. That’s what makes my performances both
cross religious as cross medial.

  1. ‘ULTIMATE FUSION’Karel van Laere & Vanja RukavinaExplosive  Bokko dance and a  tsunami of video animation In every human lies a desire for the intangible, the media usefully responds to this desire. But where commerce once more beautifully mirrored the reality, it now seems that the reality is often determined by the media. With amazement we look at this development in Asia. Or will we also dress up like our favorite cartoon in  a few years? BOKKO is an energetic dance performance that blurs the boundaries between virtuality and reality.

  10. THE GOLEM: a visual Libretto by Peter Missotten - Bernhard Lang - Nationaltheater Mannheim
From now on until July 2014 Peter Missotten and I wil be working on the visual libretto for a new performance based opera for the Nationaltheater Mannheim. Opening night for this opera will be in spring 2016. The visual libretto is a production by Peter Missotten. Check out  the first screenshots!


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In Jewish folklore, a golem (/ˈɡoʊləm/ goh-ləm; Hebrew: גולם‎) is an animated anthropomorphic being, created entirely from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material in Psalms and medieval writing.[1] The most famous golem narrative involves Judah Loew ben Bezalel, the late-16th-century rabbi of Prague. There are many tales differing on how the Golem was brought to life and afterwards controlled.
