Z Space and Joe Goode Performance Group Present:
Poetics of Space
An immersive performance installation
September 23 - November 1, 2015 at Joe Goode Annex
“I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.”
—Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
Joe Goode Performance Group and Z Space reprise their winning collaboration that brought you When We Fall Apart (2012), HUSH (2013), and the remounting of Wonderboy and 29 Effeminate Gestures (2014).
Poetics of Space is JGPG's latest venture into creating dance theater that offers limitless potential for providing each audience member with a unique, personal "human scale" experience. Poetics of Space—derived from the book “The Poetics of Space” by French philosopher Gaston Bachelard—will explore a series of intimate spaces within the installation, and allow the viewer a cinematic “close-up” experience of each space. Imagine moving through a performance where you can create your own adventure; where your decision of where to turn, to step, to look, and to listen will determine how the performance unfolds around you.
Sean Riley, known for designing sets that radically transform spaces into beautiful immersive experiences, is a key collaborator on this project.
