Open Spaces Project
60 minutes 2009
The relationship between architecture and gender, ideas of freedom and space, and constructs of masculinity inspire The Open Spaces Project, an ambitious and exciting work created by MACHiNENOiSY Co-Artistic Director Daelik. Choreographed for a cast of six men – Clinton Draper, Alex Ferguson, Shay Kuebler, Brett Owen, Chris Wright and Daelik himself – the work is an international collaboration with set design and dramaturgy by Berlin-based Australian artist Paul Gazzola, and sound and video by Calgary’s Adam Tindale. The audience moves around the space to experience multiple layers of movement, sound and visuals in an intense and illuminating performance which explores wide-ranging concepts of people and the spaces we inhabit.
