Espæce June 20-22

"The subject of this book is not the void exactly, but rather what there is round about or inside it."
—Georges Perec

An enormous moveable wall splits and folds like a book. Five performers—three dancers, a soprano (Claire Lefilliâtre), and an acrobat—navigate this imposing monolith to create a shapeshifting tableau. Aurélien Bory’s intrepid work of physical theater is inspired by the life and work of writer-trickster Georges Perec, best known for his wordplay and droll wit. Using Perec’s Species of Spaces as a jumping-off point and diving into a physical riddle of arrivals and departures, presence and absence, Espæce stretches the void of the stage and destabilizes our expectations to moody and mischievous effect.
