Real encounters in times of hyperconnectivity
January 25th – February 4th , 2018
Festival Keine Disziplin
Theaterhaus Gessnerallee, Zürich (CH).
HALL06 is a project by TAAT in cooperation with Theaterhaus Gessnerallee (CH), SIA (CH), New Theatre Institute of Latvia (LV), SoAP (NL), C-TAKT/Dommelhof (BE), Köln International School of Design (DE) and the Latvian Academy of Culture (LV).
With HALL06 the Dutch-Belgian collective TAAT takes the idea of architecture as theatre to the extreme. Set in the interior of Theaterhaus Gessnerallee in Zürich HALL06 is a theater-installation that can be best described as a social choreography. It’s a sensory experience for two that addresses the value of real people meeting each other in real space.
HALL06 turns ordinary behaviour into a spontaneous performance. Together with an unknown other you enter this wooden hyper-reality, engaging with each other whilst the installation triggers and stimulates your interaction.
HALL06 is the sixth part of HALL33, a long term research-project through which TAAT is both exploring and practicing the idea of Architectural Dramaturgy. HALL06 is developed, designed and constructed in an ‘offline open source process’ involving a wide variety of European theat-re and/or architecture professionals, experts, and students.
