Category: Space Design

Design Statement

The space of Bamboo Curtain Studio 12 Bamboos was a factory with industrial style. Performing in a non-formal theater site, we brought the space to life by using modern stripe and material in stage design. After combining the stage and space, it could respond to the performance. The center stage showed a more cold and lonely atmosphere, echoing feeling to be brought to the audience by the script.
The work is inspired by “The Idea of North” by Glenn Gould, the first piece of his contrapuntal radio documentary “Solitude Trilogy.” The scene is set on a train where five individuals are heading the North, providing contrasting views of living in the North Pole, imagining the Far North. The show is an experimental work that freely creates an imaginary interview with Glenn Gould. It discusses about the essential questions of life and the effects of solitude upon mankind in the modern world.
