You are here is a collaboration between Heine Avdal, Yukiko Shinozaki and Christoph De Boeck. A theatre space contains all imaginable possibilities. Some have been executed in the past, some will happen in the future and some will only exist as an idea or a concept, never to come to live. How can we store all these possibilities?
The creators give it a try by comparing the theatre space to an archive. An archive functions as a place where concepts, knowledge and remains of other worlds and times are being saveguarded. It is our memory in a nutshell. you are here refers to your actual physical location in the theatre. It places you in possible worlds ready to unfold before your eyes.
