Open Call Photo Project
The Emptied Space
What does it look like when you go to the theatre online at home? With theatre auditoria empty, the place of the spectator has shifted to the private domain. Inside theatres, the empty space has swapped sides – for Peter Brook (the director and author of ‘The Empty Space’) it still meant a bare stage swept clean, now, due to the pandemic, the seats are empty and only cameras and monitors remain. The audience is elsewhere – sitting in front of screens in their living rooms or with laptops in the office or on mobile phones in the garden.
Until now the variety of these arrangements has remained mostly unseen – but we want to change that together with you! Document the festival, the events of our time, the twinning of personal and theatrical space! Show your position!
Photograph the stream and its surroundings from your perspective.
Show as much of the space as possible.
Do so in landscape and the highest quality possible (mobile phones are ok), you are also welcome to send several photos.
Send it together with the following details in text form:
Name or pseudonym
Room, city, date, time
Email address for any follow-up questions (this will not be published)
Use of the photos:
The images will be adjusted slightly (for lighting, contrast and possibly cropped), collected in an archive and published as part of the Impulse Theater Festivals.
The images will be used for press and publicity purposes by the Impulse Theater Festival and will be archived for this purpose.
By sending a photo and details of the picture you consent that the Impulse Theater Festival may use the image and data for the purposes specified. This can be revoced.
