The Watchers

A project by Martin Butler

Six plays in six different languages, simultaneously played out in the windows and rooms of a building at night


The Watchers - Martin Butler

Each play has the same dramaturgical timeline but the
context of the play/performance, will differ with each window.

The plays are watched from a building opposite, each audience member is equipped with there own telescope or binoculars, as they scan from window to window, the public create their own narrative lines.

Each performance space has its own live radio (i-pod radio) broadcast,
transmitting the soundscape (which could be either soundscape or text) to a radio device that each audience member has. As the public track from performance to performance they are able to also tune into the matching soundscape.
