"Caprices 3,5" is a performative installation dominated by the frontal collision of black and white magic. Light freezes into sculpture, theatre curtain cracks. Perspective matters. All the stage-technical arsenal and the components of the play are brought forward, excessive intimacy is left behind.
"Caprices 3,5" transforms from the collective experience of the black box to the individuality of the white cube, leaving the spectator to surrender the space.
Previous chapters of "Caprices" have been presented in performing arts venues as well as in a gallery environment. Working with the characteristics of the space have slowly faded us away from the process.
