Performance Space Exhibition

The Performance Space Exhibition showcases a wide range of possibilities for theatre architecture, from found and transformed spaces to major national projects to temporal outdoor structures, especially those in remote or complicated areas where the creators of the space might not be architects. Contemporary performances take place in many spaces outside of traditional theatres, and these can be just as exciting and valid as those in traditional multifunctional performing arts structures made exclusively by architectural firms.

The buildings and spaces that come alive for a performance are complex organisms fusing together ancient traditions with new important views. No matter how beautiful or complex a piece of stunning architecture might be, without a connection to the community and the dialogue between the creator and artists using the space, the result might be a lifeless shell of a building. With this thought in mind, the designers from the collective OKOLO bring you a fleet of unexpected viewing spaces where you can watch short films created by each project based on the dialogue between the creators and the artists.
