Written, Directed by Felix Bachmann Quadros.
Felix Bachmann Quadros works in the creation, conception, development and production of artistic works for theatre, film and other media. His work relates to new forms of expression, and becomes manifest in the propagation of language and free narrative association to generate personal and unique 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 working 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.
Financing is underway for Host Artist Network, an online platform and mobile app with the aim of generating new artist to audience dynamics and production alternatives.
Felix has recently finished directing, writing and editing of eight part series sequences, 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 in September 2019.
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 recently finished 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 celular phones and screens today.
Felix works actively through the audiovisual for the development of his work. His master in performing arts at the London International School of Performing Arts (today arthaus.berlin) (2007) with Thomas Prattki opened a full spectrum of knowledge 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, expanding the limits of the different art disciplines to create works of art that contain vital dynamics in relationship to the surrounding reality.
He has written novels, short stories, films, theatre plays, and poetry.
