Afasia, an interactive multimedia performance first shown
in 1998 at the National Theater of Catalunya of Barcelona, combines
elements of music, robots and electronics. On the stage, the Catalan
artist Marcel.Lí Antúnez Roca
controls sounds, images and four robots with interfaces attached to his
body, entering a complex polylog with the machines and different
characters taken from the story of Ulysses. Antúnez develops in this
work an audiovisual and scenic ride, whose central axis is the concept
of travel, ranging from the mythic journey to the virtual topographies
of the current digital era.
