Three Part Theater

MIT Fall 2018

Instructor:  Jennifer W. Leong

Three theaters along the Emerald Necklace explore the idea of a fragmented theater, where a performance is understood as a series of fragments rather than a distinct start and end. This project proposes spaces for such theatrical fragments. A language of thresholds is developed to emphasize moments of entry and exit to the performance zones. Thickened walls allow for blurring of lines between circulation and performance spaces and allow for moments of discovery.
