Between Stone and Star (2010)

Shunt Theatre

Performance/choreography: Saffy Setohy

Video/Sound: Rainer Hutber.

Inspired by the poem Evening by Rainer Maria Rilke, Stone and Star takes as a starting point the notion of being left alone in an ‘in-between’ space, a place full of possibilities and without certainties. Created especially for the second level space in the Shunt Lounge, which has a glass floor and ceiling, the piece also revisits a common theme of the artists' work together: the influences of architecture and environment on thought, behaviour and movement. A structured improvisation, the performance took place over a thirty minute duration. Audience members were free to walk in and out of the performance space, and to stand or sit where they pleased in relation to the performers.
