InTandem Lab’s Instructions to Decode A(n In)human transformation is a postmodern punk “roach” Kabaret inspired by Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Written in verse by Gisela Cardenas and delivered as spoken poetry by a cast of three, I2Decode explores the intertwining of live music, video mapping and words. I2Decode portrays the protagonist of The Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa, on a high ride after his transformation into a bug. Interspersed seamlessly throughout the piece, Milica Paranosic’s wild, eerie and sensual score is played by an electronic cello, which takes the audience on a journey from the wildness of a punk rock kabaret to the subtle underscoring of the bug’s world.
