OHT - Office for Human Theatre
Filippo Andreatta

Squares do not (normally) appear in nature

Thirteen experiments of sound and vision form the center of this performance without actors, inspired by the life and work of Bauhaus painter Josef Albers. It’s basis is the awareness of colours via certain protagonists: abstraction, light, mist, glass, font and image. This is a metaphor for the German artist’s research, which Andreatta proceeds to stage by inviting the public to alter their gaze, to use a new way of seing in order to seek small fragments of our own reality within abstraction.
