POSSESS

large-scale performance
.
possess is a large-scale performance on possession conceived by .
At a country estate by the end of summer, a group of people leave the daily comforts of their domestic realm and explore the surrounding grounds to possess them.
The event unfolds across twenty-seven consecutive days following a script that articulates this whole period.

1
Their daily life indoors

2
Realisation of the outside

3
Focus on the first couple and sowing

4
Focus on the second couple and building of a microcosm

5
Gathering

The script is divided in five sections each covering five days, plus a final section for two days. The events in each section develop exponentially from the previous ones, reaching a climactic surge in the final section.
The script borrows from seven different disciplines — performance, prose and poetry, architecture and land art, music, sculpture, video and painting — to define the sequence of events on an hourly basis.
POSSESS aims at being a total multidisciplinary work, seeking to reach the full potential of performance, to include every artistic discipline and challenge reality.
The various disciplines will be employed by the script following a basic principle of shaping reality further and enhancing it. POSSESS is a world where everything is furthered — where every person becomes a character, every word a poem, every voice an instrument, every wall a soil.
The rule of this growth is richness — its direction possession — its way is climactic — its fruit a world in the image of possession.
The performance will be closed-door, however its rich documentary material will be made freely available through ’s software.
