Centre for Theatre and Performance 2nd Year students
Guest Director: Hallie Shellam
Acclaimed director and theatre maker Hallie Shellam will create an extraordinary new performance piece in collaboration with MUMA. Shellam will work with 2nd Year performing arts students and postgraduate visual arts students to create a performance exploring the seminal text The Poetics of Space, and the concepts and ideas explored in the forthcoming MUMA exhibition entitled Liquid Archive. What is memory? How do we record it? How do objects, spaces and digital data influence our understanding of information carried through time?
Last year Shellam created The Rooms for the Centre for Theatre and Performance, a beguiling and wonderful work in which the audience experienced an extraordinary journey inside rooms that constantly changed size and dimensions. This year, in response to MUMA’s exhibition Liquid Archive, Shellam will create another new work, this time based upon the recording of the details of crime scenes. Audiences will be invited inside a series of carefully detailed performance spaces in a theatrical production that promises to bend the concepts of space, time, and what we perceive as concrete memory.
