In the interactive performance Becoming Animal, participants are invited to engage with Kerberos, the mythical three-headed gatekeeper of the underworld, and with each other. Players stimulate and communicate with the three heads of the beast, triggering behavior-based interactions and exchanges. Kerberos’s three heads respond autonomously, each conveying a range of emotions through gesture, facial expression, and sound. This performance, which bridges the real and the virtual, was developed for the Faster than Sound Festival in Suffolk, England, in 2007.
