The incident is a performance-oriented symposium, that connects a multiplicity of locations, themes, and personalities through a common story: transcending human consciousness: the edge of what is possible and what is unimaginable: the mingling of truth with feeling, intimacy and cosmos, science, nature and art. Five main themes carry a multiplicity of visions: biosphere, psychedelics , virtual / tech / ai, extra-terrestrial, parapsychology.


The Incident 3 takes its roots from the phenomenal encounter held in 1995 in Fribourg’s Belluard fortress, Switzerland, within the frame of Belluard/ Bollwerk Festival. Major figures from the worlds of art and technology alongside researchers in unexplained phenomena, covered areas from parapsychology, ufology, dreams, and other subjects that concerned the exploration of human consciousness.

October 2021

Organised at GATE blueFACTORY, Aspects of reality gathered a local audience during 5 days, to the sharing of knowledge and artistic experimentations around REVES prototype, creation process led by Xocolat since 2019. 

The themes of exploration of REVES allowed to gather around guests such as the French sinologist Cyrille Javary, on the occasion of the hybrid conference “Le souffle du pinceau”, and to meet the curator Rob La Frenais and his team, for a journey of recollection (according to the photographic archive of Eliane Laubscher) of “The Incident”, organized during the Belluard Bollwerk in 1995, about virtual reality, the limits of consciousness in art, the impact of technologies and U.F.O.  

Calligrapher Inès Igelnick presented a performance of Chinese calligraphy and a public meeting, included in the programme thanks to the collaboration with Galerie Cathédrale.  

Children and families were able to take part in the artistic dynamics of the meeting during the Chinese ink painting workshops led by the illustrator Frédérick Mansot. 

The REVES prototype team shared their work, staging an immersive journey through layers of paper, text and audio-visual projections, following little Tang’s journey through ancient China, dreamlike reality, and the learning of ideograms.

This section includes work done for the creative universes, the fount of ideas and concept expansion. 


Felix Bachmann Quadros works in the creation, conception, development and production of artistic works for theatre, film and other media. His work becomes manifest in language, narrative association, movement, to generate personal cut and collaborative work. To a large extent his creative conception is ingrained in the use of masks, from the artisanal to the conceptual.

Currently based in Fribourg, Switzerland, Felix is co-founder of Xocolat, association for the mobility of creativity, through which he channels a number of work dynamics. promoted and conceived by Felix's work at Xocolat, supported by InnoSuisse, research collaboration with HumanTech, Fribourg. ha.n is a web instrument and mobile app with the aim of generating new artist to audience dynamics and production alternatives


Felix has worked for several years on Virtual Reality galleries in collaboration with Ruse Laboratories (California). His work with the medium has found traction through Healing Museum, guided immersions, immersive stories for hospitals (currently in use in the U.S.A.), workshops for schools, and research practice under the title of Virtual Immersion Performances. 


His work with the VR medium is rooted in a decade long research and implementation of circular narrative scenarios towards the audiovisual. Felix is working towards the construction of a full dome experience, at blueFACTORY, Fribourg, linked to HMD VR immersions towards performance. The sharing of an individual experience towards a collective one, is at the basis of REVES: a story that holds in its heart the encounter of ancient Chinese and occidental cosmovisions, dreams, memory, ideograms, calligraphy and illustrations.

During 2019 Felix completed eight part series sequences, written, directed and edited, that exhibits the work done by Fribourgoise marionette and theatre company Guignol à roulettes and fellow artists, the span of which covers two decades of archive material, from 1980 to 2003. This work has been presented in the Bibliotèque cantonale et universitaire de Fribourg.

Previously, Felix has been involved in the creation of Tu Joues?, a dance performance and creative encounter that toured Switzerland during spring 2018. He has worked in La Orientala, Uruguay, for a new mise en scene and kickoff for the ¡LAZARO! creative universe (theatre, music, multidisciplinary collaborative work), to be taken to a theatre, journalistic and audiovisual itinerant project. 


He is also constructing workshops for theatre and dance through the use of Snout Masks, and has produced The Snout Mask Film exhibiting in depth the making of and concept behind this novel instrument for writing through movement. 


During 2017 work focus was placed on writing and development of short film and VR triptych ROGUE inspired in Fribourg's basse ville, and has developed of a full length documentary, THE NAME OF A THING, focusing on the recovery of cultural and territorial identity of the Kaurna (first nation) in south Australia through their spoken language.


He has also written several development scenarios and treatments for feature film, GAMBLING TIME, (now on hold) inspired in true events that occurred in Fribourg during the summer of 2005, tackling the subject of game addiction and echoing our everyday handling of mobile phones and screens today.


Felix works actively through the audiovisual for the development of his work. He is a graduate from the London International School of Performing Arts (today (2007) to opened a full spectrum of experience through traditional dramatic territories such as Commedia dell’ Arte, the chorus, tragedy, buffon, clown, and the use of the mask in general.


He works for over a decade in the development of creative universes as a means and form of creative collaboration. The limits of the different art disciplines become permeable to life and, beyond them, create works of art that contain vital dynamics to the surrounding reality.

He has written novels, short stories, films, theatre plays, and poetry.
