Exploring further Dorner’s ideas around transformation of the urban environment through human interaction, „fitting“ takes as it’s starting point a simple plank of wood which is manipulated around the four performers to provide a unique location for them in pre-designated outdoor public spaces – a wall, staircase, building or amongst street furniture.
A dozen or more such body/plank manipulations form a 15 minute trail through the streets which audiences follow, leading them towards a 30 minute performance installation (indoor or outdoors) during which the four performers “build” a house, inspired by the Japanese term tatami (derived from tatamu, meaning to fold or pile), using 12 panels of spruce and 4 chairs.
