Just A Stage
We encourage the residents to think beyond any possible technical restrictions of the medium. For that, eˉlektron offers its fluid venue-in-progress that works and transforms according to the artists’ projects. It also concentrates on a broader audience experience: the entrance and exit points to the performance, both in their virtual spatiality and the work’s content.

Is it just a stage we’re in/on right now? What is it exactly anyway? Or, what could it be(come)?
“While the border seeks to prevent one from crossing, the threshold seems to invite such a crossover. […] While borders create clear divisions, thresholds mark a space of possibilities, empowerment, and metamorphosis. (…) the aesthetics of the performative aims at a border-crossing art, this means that it transforms borders into thresholds. The aesthetic of the performative allows for an art of passage”
