3. I Can’t See You, You Can’t See Me:
Isolation and coexistence in the Dark
Campfire is a performance in the dark exploring the possibilities for alternative encounters and the tension between the individual and shared audience’s experience. The performance is a result of practical and artistic research considering the possibilities of darkness and dramaturgies of uncertainty. By highlighting the collective or shared experience and attempting to undermine the isolating quality of being wrapped in/by darkness, Campfire tries to better understand what happens to sociality under the cover of darkness and the significance being together without seeing one another.
