ATK! [pronounce attack] is Ofer Smilansky and Isjtar smashing sound and burning shadows. ATK! creates live immersive experiences: performances that use light to mold buildings into textures and volumes, driven by electronic music.
The work is site-specific, ATK! looks for architecture out of the ordinary to make a one time experience. By combining lights and music, the performers influence the entire audiovisual perception of the audience’s environment, without reducing the experience to watching a screen. It gives presence to the performers, they aren’t anonymous robots hiding behind screens, but visible and active manipulators of the audiovisual scape.
ATK! stands for dynamic performances with a huge sound, majestic lights. It stands for performers who fuse with the music and each other. It stands for taking it to the next level because we have to.
