SOTA Studio Theatre
EVENT HAS ENDED

In this remarkable performance of object theatre, Andrea Salustri explores the possibilities of polystyrene, one of the most common form of plastic. Watch as it comes alive and becomes the protagonist of the events on stage. MATERIA inspires us to consider how we engage with objects, allowing them to perform their own artistry and create their own magic. The piece tries not to force a narrative but rather let the audience project their own narrative on the images presented on stage. Within a set score, objects are free to perform and take initiative.

MATERIA explores the balance between being a facilitator and being a performer, as the focus gradually shifts from the person manipulating the objects, to the act of manipulation, and finally to the object being manipulated. At the same time, the immersive experience investigates the borders between contemporary circus, dance, and physical theatre.

There will be a post-show talk with Andrea Salustri after Saturday evening’s performance.
