A 40-minute quintet, Half Space expores the relationship between human movement and architecture. The piece, which features a stage transformed by endless rolls of carpet runners, piles of chairs and a massive chandelier, sets out to excavate through the many layers of time and energy contained within a hotel ballroom. Inside this built environment, five characters traverse in an interstitial space through three states of being: inanimate, human and extra-pedestrian.
