KINGDOM OF THE SHADOWS

Rheinisches Landesmuseum | Trier (DE) | 2010

Walk-in media theatre. Approximately 50 monumental Roman gravestones and wall reliefs from Trier are staged in a completely novel form at the state museum Rheinisches Landesmuseum in Trier, Germany. Elements from cinema, theatre, animated cartoons and radio plays are applied using state-of-the-art technology to transform the silent museum room into an immersive, narrative and media-enhanced spatial theatre. Inspired by the earliest forms of Roman comedy, the centuries-old, authentic, original exhibits are integrated in an emotional a 360° audiovisual mapping and revived through images, spoken word and sounds. For 45 minutes, the visitors are immersed into a poetic play that is a fusion of audio play and visual world. 


In this combination of audio play and image worlds, the visitors are immersed into a poetic play for 45 minutes, witnessing Roman activities appearing to culminate in excess, which however ends up being impeded by the gods in the grand finale. The story has been developed from the representations on the Roman gravestones. This is a captivating and one-of-a-kind presentation of antique reliefs.
