BLACK SUN is a celebration of audio cinema. The sense of sight is switched off as the audience is exposed to sounds and speech only. There is no screen in this cinema. No image either, just darkness. Imagination makes up for the missing stimuli, opening doors to hallucinations, delusions and fantasies. The sun is blinding. When you look at it too long, you will finally see its negative under closed eyes. Whatever was there is now gone. It is dark and empty. Suddenly, the Black Sun blinds you. Words become psychoactive. Memories break free.

I look at the black sun. It burns inside out. I outline it with an imaginary dotted line, but it pours into my pupils anyway, going further, deeper inside. I reach my empty spaces. Nothing could be more terrifying. Every fear has its limit there. The mind stops reacting. Only the body reacts. Let the black light, the black absence now fall on me and crush me, bury me, flood me. I keep turning towards it. I always come too close. I’d like to see all this one more time. / fragment from the Black Sun by Anka Herbut
