ATK! [pronounced attack] was Ofer Smilansky and Isjtar smashing sound and burning shadows.
ATK! created live immersive experiences: performances that used light to mold buildings into textures and volumes, driven by electronic music.
The work was site-specific, ATK! looked for architecture out of the ordinary to make a one time experience. By combining lights and music, the performers influenced the entire audiovisual perception of the audience’s environment, without reducing the experience to watching a screen. It gave presence to the performers, they aren’t anonymous robots hiding behind screens, but visible and active manipulators of the audiovisual scape.
ATK! stands for dynamic performances with a huge sound and majestic lights. It stands for performers who fuse with the music and each other. It stands for taking it to the next level because we have to.

Instead of the usual immersion this piece plays on a facade and three towers! We went for a straight sound, more fitting for a mainstream event.
