Dead Thinking

The black box of the theater is a possible environment for low mysticism – it facilitates a focus on the details of life, a detachment of actions, thoughts and affects from the everyday reality, people, objects, and even a work with abstract behaviors and states of mind. The blackness of the walls helps to concentrate the attention on any object, person, movement, thought that is introduced in the box, and the walls are also a constant subliminal reminder of the darkness of the outside. The fourth wall, where the audience (real or imaginary) is, functions as a strange impersonal eye that forces an outside perspective on the person in the box – a visual but mostly affective perspective that can be interiorized and always there, after a certain point. An apparently neutral space seems to be ready, inviting to construct, amplify and manipulate realities.
