“The most intense computer game experience this year manages (almost) without a computer.”
Kevin Mentz, Lead Designer von „A New Beginning“ (winner of the German computer game prize 2011)
“(…) The perfection of these situations that machina eX offers their audiences is – next to the enormous fun factor – the big quality of this young performance collective. For they succeed in passing that the audience feels neither exposed nor forced to participate, but admits himself into the situation without further doubts. Maybe it is the result of the intimate setting (…) – or simply grand illusionistic theater…”
(taken from the Impulse-Festival program text from curator Tamina Theiß)
