Keeping in mind Luis Buñuel's quote that - 'sound stimulates the imagination more than the image', the purpose of this module of the Apparitions project is to explore sound's ability to evoke mental images in the listener. In a short radio fiction, performed in front of an audience and broadcasted live to listeners at home, the tension between what is seen, heard and imagined becomes tangible. Another goal for this module is to step out of the 19th century dust, and to venture into the science-fiction of the 22nd century. Peeters did this by writing a (deliberately rather classical) script about a science-fiction writer who died in 2018 and wakes up in 2122, to discover a society where the dead are resurrected and actively involved in social and political debate.
