De Lancering (The Launch) is about a self-developed ‘time machine’. With this time machine a time traveller travels to the future. He returns the same evening with images, experiences, concepts and visions of future citizens. The spectators literally and figuratively get a sneak peek into the future as Vis à Vis imagines it to be.
Vis à Vis played the short performance De Lancering in 2009 at Almere in cooperation with the Artecollege. De Lancering functioned as a promotion for Silo 8, which was performed the following year.
