Collection of Spectators is a show and an exhibition rolled into one. On stage, Raquel André initiates a probing conversation with a group of theatre goers who are regular visitors of Stadsschouwburg Utrecht. She plans a series of intensive workshops with them during the preceding week, during which they talk about how they look at art, what art means to them, and what striking works of art have made a lasting impression on them. And there’s room to talk about the hidden story of the theatre itself.
In the week preceding the show, Raquel André will be giving a workshop in which they take a close look at some of the spectators’ most extraordinary experiences with art. What are shows that have been etched onto your mind? What song marked an era? Which film could be the story of your life?
All are welcome to join in, regardless of age, profession, ethnic background, gender identity or disability: all you need is a willingness to share your story of how you feel about art. The group of workshop participants will be part of the show Collection of Spectators which will be presented onstage in the Blauwe Zaal at Stadsschouwburg Utrecht on 27 October.
