In Place of a Show

What happens inside theatres when nothing is happening? Drawing attention away from the human element (the work of performers, artists, audiences, architects, etc), this conference-performance focuses on the buildings themselves: theatres stripped of their primary purpose, lying empty, preserved as museums, or demolished.

In the middle of that 48-year-long night, there […]
