This sound performance has been made by the participants in the radiophonic workshop that took place in November 2013. Taking place in the Museum’s auditorium, it will aim to transform a formal-passive space used for academic lectures into a creative-performative one with the potential for story-telling and imagination. As a result, the aesthetic of poetry characteristic of literature will extend beyond the exhibition space and locate itself in key parts of the Museum.

For White Night 2014, In the Air, a young people’s collective of the MCTM, will be offering a free, entirely sound-based and spontaneous version of Perrault’s original fairy tale of 1697.

This new version adds elements derived from contemporary life to the story’s traditional structure. Presented from a humorous perspective, they emphasise issues suitable for a contemporary critique.

Everyday life in which reality tv, consumerism, hyper-communication and generalised isolation seem to dictate our habits over time.

This new version of Perrault’s fairy tale, “Little Red Riding Hood 2.0”, aims to present participants with a series of questions in order to locate them in a critical position with regard to the reality that we construct and which constructs us on a daily basis.
