Concepts of occupancy and intrusion are activated through performance and explored in body language and gesture.
A specific architectural arena is articulated for this work. An isolated section of a standard Dutch row house is interpreted as stage and crime scene; The Theatre Box. The space is deconstructed into a sequence of architectural elements: Door, threshold, boundary, stair and window. The psychology of these elements is emphasied within the performance through narration. The space is written; A ‘play’ of intimacy and control is scripted and choreographed (Occupant Vs Intruder). Spatial props and line-work are used to describe the dynamics of the space through drawing convention and scale. Props and line-work are set at scale 1:2 to increase spatial tension and place emphasis on theatricality in relation to the body.
