Autonomous Scenography - Meryem Bayram

The project Autonomous Scenography is based on the fascination of visual artist Meryem Bayram for pop-up books. She developed a series of forms made of sheet cardboard which can be unfolded from an apparently empty flat surface to a whole repertory of evocative scenic elements. Different artists were invited to use their imagination on the material. In this way, the project demonstrates what happens when the scenography does not rely on a story or choreography, but the other way around. How can the performance artists, sound and light designers contaminate these various scenic elements? In a sensitive yet evocative game of forms, spaces, objects and worlds are set up, revealing to what extent our perception of reality is determined by personal associations.    Objects and concept Meryem Bayram   developed with and performed by Gaëtan Bulourde and Clément Layes   Sound design Charo Calvo   Light design Pol Matthé   Outside eye David Bergé   Costume Johanna Trudzinski   Production Valerie De Visscher   Production assistance Gizem Karaosmanoglu   Special thanks Marnix Rummens - Production Platform 0090 Coproduction Playground #8 (STUK&M)/wpZimmer/STORMOPKOMST © Mesut Arslan
