Visitors Only

Autorenschaft
Beschreibung

Dreaming is a lonely business. While Alibi was testing reality, Visitors Only touches on fantasy worlds. In the rehearsal process, Damaged Goods investigated hallucinations and researched the prerequisites for possession and trance. These alternative states of consciousness are constantly present in Stuart’s research processes, but are first articulated as such in Visitors Only. The piece shows people who live in their memories; but also bodies that are reduced to being receivers and transmitters of visual, energetic and acoustic signals. It is a zone of transition where dreams and reality blend. These displaced guests from a fantastic party crawl under a building that is in itself an instigator of insecurity: it has spaces and holes everywhere, as well as tiny doors and slanting walls. Inspired by the work of Gordon Matta-Clark Anna Viebrock designed the asymmetrical two-story house.
