Design Statement

A Chinese Box is the result of a trans disciplinary experiment dreamt for a long time:
The encounter, through the cinematic resolution of the experience of a theatrical space.
It began when I designed the scenography of a Chile ́s play that need a Chinese coffee shop. The play was staged and performed in Mexico in 2015.
The experiment comes to life from the imaginary principle of the existence of a unique and intrinsic reality of the theatre space, a space that summons spirites when the audience is gone and the lights are off. A space that becomes then inhabited by it’s own desires. I create A Chinese Box filled with mysteries, patiently awaiting in a timeless respite.
The stage space, designed with plastic containers, becomes a box of lattice windows and it is through the eyes of the cinema that we see glimpses of a Jai Ku poem that reveals to us the games and plays of the spirites.
