Not to Scale

Not to Scale is a full-length autoteatro performance which draws two participants into shared experiments and intertwined processes of drawing, erasing and listening. Guided by a soundtrack, you create a shared journey using pencil on paper. Crude doodles soon come to life in a comical and unsettling picture book narrative that plays constantly with the tension between creation and destruction, life and death, energy and entropy.

Stories, pictures, ideas appear and disappear constantly on the page, and start to unfold into a lo-fi carnival of possibility.

Available in English, Spanish and Dutch.
