BLACK BOX is a theater project that moves the performing arts into an alternative space inspired by Savamala’s greatest problem, heavy traffic, defining it as a playground.
Since theater, as a segment of the performing arts that has existed for 2,500 years, can and must treat as a problem that which is happening HERE and NOW (which is the basic definition of theater), and looking for a form of dealing with theater in a beautiful but neglected part of the city, full of noise, smog and unbearable traffic jams, we have come to a stalemate in defining the conceptual and the essential.
Yes, theater has the power to raise the awareness of the audience. Yes, it is necessary to raise the awareness of the audience about the run-down state of a part of the city like Savamala. No, theater cannot remain isolated from the essence of the Mixer festival and cocooned in itself with its need for sets, portals or a possible displacement into an alternative space under the pretext of the ambient-like as self-contained. It has to enter the heart of the problem and with its only aim, which is asking questions, warn and force into action because action is the essence of a theatrical act. Action and not a word. We need an empty space. One man is doing something, and another is watching him, which is enough for a theatrical event.
This is where we got the idea of matching what is apparently unmatchable. Heavy trucks, as the first thing that comes into mind at the mention of Savamala, with their huge trailers, become a theatrical space. It is an empty and barren space, but by maintaining the basic theatrical illusion of the black box, our aim is to ask a question with the following answer:
Yes, theater is a form that can be adjusted to every situation and it confirms this by lasting four milleniums, while by it unique model of a direct contact between author and/or performer and audience, through a single definition of time and space, HERE and NOW, it has to appeal to us to see a broader picture through an intimate, even miniature form placed in the trailer of a truck parked in Savamala.
It is enough for theater. It is necessary to us.
