THRESHOLDS OF PERFORMANCE
COMMUNITY YOUTH THEATRE
Proposal for a community youth theatre
in Whitechapel. A site caught in-between different urban fabrics, that leaves some fragments of the city that are suspended in the transition between different programmes, and performance. A micro-cosm of the city.
The design is wedged within existing warehouses on the site which have accumulated over the last 100 years. The programme aims to bleed the street into the theatre space encouraging permeability of performance. The act of coming together is part of the theatre of the street and community.
