An audio play on the act of looking
The place, or rather non-place, is the starting point for the experience created by Britt Hatzius. The audience looks out on to a wasteland. Through the headphones they are wearing, they listen to children describing that very scene. What starts out as a kind of hold, as a straightforward close observation exercise, gradually evolves into a more dynamic process as the young commentators start to imagine: what would have once stood on this piece of land? And what might occupy it in the future?
Britt Hatzius created the soundtrack during a workshop with local children. A poetic reflection on absence, the possible, and the traces left by the past in the context of the urban transformations Fribourg is witnessing.
