Research Project: ‘Reflective Space, in junction with developing scenographies for Title 66 Productions’

‘Reflective Space’ is a working title of a new research project exploring performative elements of an environment, as an ephemeral and poetic landscape where light, sound and movement along with thin water surface form an actual architectural space. Layers and transparencies of ephemeral optical architectures interlaced with movement of bodies are constantly shaping and reshaping the performative nature of the environment. ‘Reflective Space’ attempts to combine three types of Spaces: ‘Cinematic Space,’  ‘Scenographic Space,’ and ‘Corporal Space’ into one performative unity where the technology along with the elements become the extension of the ‘self’ and the ‘other’ as spatial performance and environment.  The prototype developed during the P A R E residency in the Black Box is the first step of a new forward looking research of  performative elements for ‘Reflective Space’ (2015-2016). Specific research elements will be also formed in junction with developing scenographies and scenographic studies for ‘Nuclear Sky’ and include creative discussions and experiments with the involved designers and researchers: Joe Browne, Omar Faleh, Cédric Delorme-Bouchard, and Nikolaos Chandolias.Elements developed specifically for the ‘Nuclear Sky’ will appear in scenography which will be further designed exclusively for Title66 Productions, and presented at ‘Theatre Rouge de Conservatoire’ Montreal, Quebec, June 3 – 7, 2014.
