Third Space Performance

This explorative, collaborative group performance explored various sensory dimensions, of space and time. Taking initial inspiration from the life story of the French inventor, Louis Le Prince, who lived in Leeds from 1866 and who disappeared in 1890.

The performance took the audience members on a physical journey through various zones that performed various sensory scenographic experiences. The simulation of a train station, traveling on a train, encountering Elizabeth Whitley, wife of Le Prince.

Le Princes’ sketches and personal letters informed design decisions, suspended, distressed books, and letter hung in the space for Elizabeth to look at and invite the participants to engage with, and share the experience
