Lilith Performance Studio's video documentation of HeadHouse by Elin Lundgren and Petter Pettersson.
A site specific performance shown during 3 nights in March 2012.
Without chronological steering the viewer is released free in a labyrinth system of paths and rooms. Twenty participants are moving in the system’s given framework and staging course of events that could be taken from a bloody dream or a violent and absurd fable.
In a house like structure of 8 rooms HeadHouse is taking place.
HeadHouse was shown during three nights, 8-10 March at Lilith Performance Studio, Malmo, Sweden.
Head House is a term from the transport - and railway sector and is used to define the part of the railway station, which not includes the railroad tracks and platforms, but the part that consists of baggage facilities, toilets and waiting rooms.
Lundgren and Pettersson have been inspired by the meaning of the word and interpreted head house in the form of a non-place. A place that points to another direction, another activity. A place that suggests a movement. A place with entries and exits, nooks and meanderings. In extension a place for free thought.
