staging EU IMMIGRANTS EU CITIZENS – London

A visual essay on  

…the role public and private / indoors and outdoors existing architectures can play in the creation of spatial dramaturgies in participatory performance 

 

…the re-imagining/re-authoring of inhabiting architectural and urban spaces through the invitation to a shared scenographic landscape 

 

the use of perpetual architectural properties each space offers, and how it can enhance the developing of an ephemeral performative spatial/scenographic vocabulary 

 

…the autobiographical in scenography-led performance, and notions of immigration and citizenship 

 

 

 

 

Eu Immigrants EU Citizensa performance project by Performing Architectures – Andreas Skourtis, took place in three chapters and three different locations in London in 2016. 

multi-disciplinary team of EU-born London-based artists, lead by Andreas, explored how existing architectures in the city can create scenographic metaphors through participatory scenography-led performances, and raise awareness of notions and the dialogue-around EU Immigration in the UK.
