Mechanics of Dwelling
The next phase of development for Mechanics of Dwelling is Figures of Dwelling, now being developed in Los Angeles by Elizabeth Watt and Amelia Charter as part of The Tiny Theatre of L A.
Mechanics of Dwelling is a collaboration with artist, Elizabeth Watt. It was first performed in participation with Historic Tennyson Art District's First Friday Art Walk in 2013, and then with And Toto Too Theatre Company's Play Crawl. The peice investigates the transitional space of the garage, locating the body and mind as two vehicles that reckon with nomadic behavior and the feelings of home and dwelling. The work stems from our research into nomadic migrations, home renovations, and personal story.
Materials include 2 pairs of designed and sewn linen coveralls, an electric typewriter, pigment, dropcloth, ink, paper, nagahide apholstery, alley-way found door, field recorder
