Vanisihing Point took their inspiration for this show from Jeff Wall’s famous photograph, which shows a ransacked room, where every item of furniture has been torn up and destroyed. What happened?
The Destroyed Room begins with what seems to be the recording of a debate. As the western guests gather to digest world events, around them cameras film their every word and every reaction, beaming them live onto a big screen.
As audiences watch both the live action and the film, slowly and as if in a dream, the debate intensifies and the atmosphere begins to change.
The Destroyed Room is about the abundance of lenses, which bring the world right into our homes. It’s about what we see, what we turn away from... and what’s coming.
A co-production with Battersea Arts Centre. In association with Tron Theatre and Eden Court. Conceived and directed by Matthew Lenton.
