"As a spectator, Videohometraining can be enjoyed as part narrative storytelling and part non linear videogame,
melted together in a facinating live performance where the performers themselves fight with the amount of control
they have over their performative instruments: characters and objects in their self created game.

  The Videohometraining Show  
 


Videhometrainings liveshow duals live performance with self created videogame environment,
introducing characters that play a 2-d action adventure of shooting, jumping & kicking on screen, hopping
from level to level, obeying the laws of the Videohometraining universe, synchronised to
liveplayed music composed and performed on classic videogameconsoles.

Videohometrainings liveshows game enviroment duals as a digital stage, and the audience gets to see its unique mechanics; divided in seperate levels, each level existing from a song, animations, rapping, and adhering wild bodymovements.
Each level introducing another habitat for the characters to discover, both through micro and macro exploration.
Audiovisual characters and objects are introduced, reshaped, disappear and re-introduced. Environments can change from second to second, depending on their interaction and collisions with their performers, who sometimes find themselves ending up back in the beginning again. Turning the law of the videogame into a performative tool, the audience gets to explore the Videhometraining omniverse in the most non-linear way possible.

"Videohometraining facinates their audience by pulling them into their unique performance:
an eccentric videogame crossover live performance, structurally much resembling a musical.
Here, a funky mix of noisy beats, unpredictable characters, twists and turns keeps the audience curiously
engaged

Bright Magazine

Videohometraining can best be described as a selfcreated videogame turned liveperformance containing high-end Vector characters and 2D Fantasy Heroes. Videohometraining spits out a funky mix of animated videogame avatars, who are fighting against dark forces in the form of various aliens, spaceships and dangerous clones of bikini-clad women "
