Atelier I

Dear          , here are some thoughts/questions that have been on my mind the last couple of weeks. I’ve been thinking about spaces of assembly. About stadiums. I've been thinking about how you can see from a plane which sport is being played in a stadium, just by the form of it. I've been thinking about the relation between the heat of a fire and the diameter of the circle of people around it. I've been thinking about a medieval town built inside an amphitheater because it was the safest place to be. I found myself thinking about centers. Centers of attention. I've been wondering how a stadium would look that tries to get 200 persons as close as possible to the center. I've been watching a lot. I've been thinking a lot. I’ll put some of the thinking sketches in attachment                    , jozef

Scenography for a dance production by Meg Stuart/ Damaged Goods. The existing tribune of the venue was replaced by a 360° scaffolding structure on two levels.

During the shows I was watching the performers, trying to imagine how it feels to be surrounded by the gaze of an audience.
