Spelling Spectacle

Spelling Spectacle is a game where 3 performers navigate a meticulously devised, yet playful, plan.

With each move, they peek into the immediate future, attempting to avoid the pitfalls of individual whims and stringent collectivism.

By being loyal to the game rules, they risk steering into walls, hopelessly going in circles, missing their marks. By being loyal to their individual ideas, they risk sabotaging the collective effort. This productive dilemma drives the work forward.

The goal is to build the piece in real-time. Everything becomes material, as movement trajectories are woven thanks to both coincidence and careful considerations. And as the map is drawn, the mysteries unfold.

Every next frame is the result of a previous steppingstone.
Each stone carries the baggage of the ones before.
In con-sequence, they spell out both the obvious and the

The next step, the next room, the next door
- continuously leaving one space to make another appear.
