“There was actually nothing that could tell the differences between the days. Not even spontaneous changes or at least a lack of order of some kind. And the smell, this empty house smell”
Common Ground is a theatre piece about one's capacity for replacing one thing for a similar one. It revolves around the idea of displacement, dispersion and presence in an unfamiliar situation.
On stage the interior of an apartment is reproduced by two large animated video projections suggesting the moves of a person through it. This person is the temporary tenant of the place looking closely at every detail of the rooms and consequently pondering about her condition as a guest in there. It is a monologue performed live and the person who is talking is not visible at the set.
The spectators are located inside this “illusory environment” of images; domestic sounds and voice over engaging at the observations in a very direct manner.
