In 4D CINEMA, Mamoru Iriguchi performs live with a host of fantastic Hollywood movie stars – many of whom are now dead, focusing on Marlene Dietrich. Set in a cinema and employing black and white classic film clips and newly filmed footage, 4D CINEMA is a performance piece that explores what is live and what is recorded and fixed eternally on film; what they mean to us in this day and age and where new technology blurs actual and virtual realities.

Toying with the boundaries in multimedia, using digital imageries both as a means of critiquing tired ideas and as a way of escaping them, Iriguchi is constantly physicalizing the digital. – Amelia Forsbrook, Exeunt Magazine ★ ★ ★ ★ on Mamoru Iriguchi’s Triple Bill at The Place
