It is often extremely complicated to explain that there is nothing to explain… In contemporary art, what the spectators feel and think by themselves is the most important. In R/T Poetry – phase # 01: deduction of the voluminous body, nobody tries to say anything in particular to the audience except: “feel what you want and think what you feel!” That simple thing is not so simple. The question “what has to be done on the stage so the audience produces its own sensations?” is not an easy one to answer. Neither is it always easy for the spectator to let himself go and to stop keeping under control feelings and thoughts.
The work presented at Mace had been prepared in only one week (three hours per day). That’s why it was nothing more than a short first phase – which would need to grow to be truly “presentable”. It was above all the occasion for the five students involved to discover through a practical experience other forms of building art devices – in this case: a theatre show. A kind of going on into the diversity that compose the contemporary worlds. There is never only one way, in art neither, in theatre less.
R/T Poetry 2 - the royal bioscope company , the second opus, has been presented at MACE in March 2012.
