Can form perform?
The program of theater is traditionally hermetic and context agnostic. To address the more democratic needs of a contemporary urban theater, the classical forms of the typology are analyzed, deconstructed, and redistributed as site level arrangements. Through this process, the language of formal analysis is deployed to produce new relationships of performer and audience.
