video jack

Video Jack (André Carrilho and Nuno Correia) will premiere their new Audio-Visual project, Master and Margarita, at Kiasma Theatre, Helsinki, this Sunday, 5th April, at 17:00h. The performance is part of the PixelAche festival.

“Master and Margarita” is an audio-visual adaptation of Michail Bulgakov’s masterpiece with the same name. The visual style of Video Jack’s “Master and Margarita” brings together a graphical collage of photographic and drawn elements into interactive animations, with a strong influence of Soviet-period imagery. The surreal, almost demential, universe of Bulgakov is captured graphically. In sonic terms, the references are Igor Stravinsky, Kurt Weil, Can, Einstürzende Neubauten, Pan Sonic and Vladislav Delay.
