Memoritis is a theatrical video installation by Kurt d’Haeseleer with text by Ilya L. Pfeijffer, inspired on the practice of the anatomical theater. The memory of a anonymous character gets dissected and analyzed by a virtual jury. The judges watch images who seem to come from the memory of the accused and try to find out what crime the central character has done. They don’t agree about the meaning of these images and wether they match with the actual crime. The judges get stuck in a deadly carousel of procedures and intrigues until all ends in an absurd but deadly endgame.
