Third Space | Isabelle Kirouac


Third Space by Isabelle Kirouac is a trio between dancers, a stilt-walker and designed objects, exploring the concept of liminality. It brings together a series of oppositions (stilts/dance, pop/experimental music, soft/hard objects, French/Farsi/Swedish native tongues etc.) and attempts to discover what gets revealed in the in-between. What lives in the gap between stimulus and response? What gets lost in translation? How do we meet? Negotiating binary oppositions and allowing for multiple levels of identification, this work explore the concept of hybridity through intimate connections between performers, objects and audience members.

Everything is third space.
Everything is outside in.
Everything is inside out.
Everything is everything.
