With INFINI 1-15, Decoratelier created a performance around the following question: “which spaces must we show in the theatre today?” Fourteen artists entered into a dialogue with Jozef Wouters and Decoratelier, an eclectic group of builders and thinkers, and each conversation resulted in an infini: a unique interpretation of the painted backdrops that were lowered on pulleys, as a horizon for the imagination. The book INFINI 1-15 is a continuation of that dialogue, a translation of scenographic space and image into both words and layout. Published by De Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek, the volume gathers together the makers’ performance texts, stage directions and spatial descriptions.
