A performance in which the space of the theatre is presented as a vast archive of performative possibilities and ideas, realized, discarded, or still to be realized
you are here is a collaboration between Heine Avdal, Christoph De Boeck and Yukiko Shinozaki. A theatre space contains all imaginable possibilities. Some have been executed in the past, some will happen in the future, and some will only exist as an idea or a concept and will never come to life. How can we store all these possibilities?
The artists gave it a try by comparing the theatre space to an archive. An archive functions as a place where concepts, knowledge and remains of other worlds and times are being safeguarded. It is our memory in a nutshell. you are here refers to our actual physical location in the theatre. It places us in possible alternative worlds, ready to unfold in front of our eyes.
Premiere: May 22, 2008 at Kunstencentrum Vooruit (Ghent)
