Ten Square Foot derives from the Japanese Hōjōki (1212), meaning“square-jō record’ , translated as The Ten Foot Square Hut. It depicts the concept of impermanence. Its opening sentence says:
‘The current of the flowing river does not cease, and yet the water is not the same water as before … So, too, it is with the people and dwellings of the world.’
Ten Square Foot will consist of the concepts of trance possession, verticality, luminosity and performativity.
We plan to create a potent, distilled trio of disciplines – body, sound, light – to be performed live by Yap, Flynn, Humphrey and Hector.
