From pubs, canals and abandoned warehouses to libraries, museums and apps, we’ve made work in all kinds of virtual and physical spaces. Help us learn more about how these spaces influence your experience of Blast Theory’s work.

About the research:

We’re looking for participants to take part in a narrative inquiry of Blast Theory’s past work. The research will look at the audiences’ experience of ‘space’ during Blast Theory’s work and is being carried out by our current artist resident, Christiana Kazakou. You can read more about Christiana and her work here.

The research will contribute to an Christiana’s individual work as well as helping us to understand and improve future Blast Theory work.

 

How do I contribute?

You will be given a number of projects to choose from followed by an interview in person, or via email, social media or phone.

If you would like to take part in this research, please email Christiana at [email protected]

 

Context:

Narratives are infinite in their variety and we find them everywhere. Aristotle’s Poetics is related to increasing awareness of the role story-telling plays in shaping social phenomena. Reflecting & finding meaning is in the connection between characters, spaces, events and experiences. There are a number of questions that can be asked about the relationship between narratives and reality. How does the subjective experience interacts with the spatial world? In which ways is your ‘mental’ space displacing between the virtual & the physical when you actively participate in a ‘storyworld’?
