WHAT IS UP? | a site-specific virtual theatre | documentation

    „WHAT IS UP?“ is an architectural projection on „de Pakkerij“ - a typical Dutch dwelling house in the city center of Enschede / Netherland. It was performed during the International Festival of Arts “Grenswerk” on the 25th of September 2010.

    By means of a precise fitting projection the whole house turns into a three-dimensional vast room hosting a human being of huge proportions. The conventional physical laws appear to be repealed and strangely linked to the mental processes of the protagonist. Sudden changes of gravity or mysterious modifications of the walls take place. The house seems to have a life of its own.

    “WHAT IS UP?” focuses on the question of how someone reacts if nothing is like it used to be. The basic Idea was to reflect upon our constructions of inside and outside. It examines the relation between defined physical boundaries of our living environment and the limits of our distinct “soul space“. Despite being challenged by extraordinary occurrences the main character deals with all unexpected effects in a playful way. He easily comes up with solutions. He dances life and simply says ‘WHAT IS UP?’.
