Stille Teater – Kirstine Roepstorff

Copenhagen, 2008

‘Stille teater’ is an ongoing theatrical installation in the exhibition where a seated audience is confronted with a stage occupied not by actors but by a collage sculpture. When set in motion, the sculpture combines with dramatic lighting and stage effects to provide the starting point for the narrative.

The play itself is spun from a dialogue for two voices, Image and Space. One voice, Image, is down-to-earth, rational and committed to maintaining some sort of cohesion. The other, Space, talks in abstractions, letting everything hang in the air, untouched but observed.
