Mobile Academy Warsaw. Course: City as Stage
Cargo Ready-Made. Machine – Intervention Lab
The Cargo Ready-Made Machine is the flipside of a protected rehearsal room. It is a custom-rebuilt Bulgarian truck that transports gazes instead of goods: a container on wheels with a big window. A mobile audience space that focuses on cities like a microscope. Wherever the truck stops, the city becomes a stage, a performance, the patient on the couch of analysis, the topic of discussion, the subject of criticism. The Cargo Ready-Made Machine can fictionalize cities and gives them a soundtrack and every passer-by in front of it becomes an actor.The course took place in the truck itself on different sites of intervention in Warsaw.
