Bildraum can be translated as ‘image space’; these are the two elements that Steve Salembier and Charlotte Bouckaert work with in this performance with an open narrative structure. Together, they create a kind of ‘architecture walk’ before the eyes of the spectator: using her camera Charlotte moves across the various spaces Steve has built up using scale-models. In this way they gradually create images, frameworks in which personal memories unfold, a story that is built up like a photo album. The result is projected onto a large screen at the back of the stage. Bildraum is a performance in which architecture and photography, past and present coincide; a live scenography in which the two artists perform as magicians of the imagination. This piece is the first collaboration for the theatre of architect Steve Salembier and photographer Charlotte Bouckaert.
Premiere: 7 and 8 November 2014, Beursschouwburg Brussels (BE)
