We were led into a corridor—created due to a temporary inbuilt structure that gives the space the allure of a white cube. The tour made the back- stage into a front; making the construction of both the event and the space visible. The performance laid bare the workings of a closed community; showing it by what I imagine are the the dynamics of such community. The story was told through fragmented images—incomplete pieces of information that are interweaved and yet it’s unclear how they exactly work together. The performance felt like an inquiry into a distant history; one that is slowly unraveling itself. The bigger part of ‘Scatla’ took place outside in a passageway. Due to the cold, we stood close to one another and the dimmed light emphasised the chapel-like structure of the roof above us. It caused the whole set- ting to feel a bit creepy. We passed on images and in doing so, people started to talk. The collective search for meaning casually resulted into a more open atmosphere; interestingly contrasting the closed community that was being discussed.
