Green Space is a story of a man, a woman, and a house, told by six performers and 64 two-by-fours. It is an interactive performance work in which the characters literally colonize the space with help from the audience and eventually build themselves into a box. Green Space is a continuation of Inner Fish Performance Co.’s investigation of Dick and Jane, a restless urban couple struggling with their relentless need for greener grass. The story is told in an open space and the audience is free to move throughout the experience. The piece is a hybrid of installation/performance art and traditional theatre staging.
