He asked an eclectic group of creators – ranging from theatre makers and choreographers to writers and visual artists – what kinds of spaces audiences should be able to encounter in today’s theatre. In addition to painted backdrops (‘infinis’), contemporary media also help to conjure concrete, virtual and imaginary spaces in the theatre: the coast of Lesbos, negative space, a city skyline seen from inside a game, an endless forest of palm trees... INFINI 1-16 shows all of these spaces in sequence, with the theatrical machinery running at full speed and subverting our perspective over and over again. This show fires the collective imagination with spatial experimentation, radical illusion and boundless magic.
