Living Room in a Dungeon
Performance length: always 15 min
Each piece of furniture has its own character, each acts in its own unique way and their different shapes and sizes give them specific properties. In Living Room performance, the furniture comes to life and, as independent beings, they can move around, meet others, interact, but they cannot leave the room. They must share the space they were installed in. Same as different people share a single space in which their life stories take place, whether they are smaller families or entire communities.
