show.Rooms_regional: Fear and Space

11. - 21. October 2017 Klagenfurt, AT

Which rooms scare us and why? show.Rooms explored this question together with the audience by reflecting on social conditions and architectural intentions through intervention and participation. In short performances the audience experienced various contributions in six performance rooms. Among the guides who accompanied them throughout the evening were an insurance consultant, a hospice attendant, a stewardess, and an architect
