P.S.

 

P.S. is an experimental study piece. Based on the definition on personal space which was proposed by American anthropologist Edward T. Hall.

He describes that the personal space can categorise into four different zones.


I tried to apply those four zones into actual theatre space. The space between The Dummy (performer) on stage and The Audience in the auditorium would be The Public Zone. The space between The Dummy, The Presenter and The Audience after introduction would be The Social Zone. The space between The Dummy and The Presenter would be The Personal Zone. The Space between The Dummy and The Presenter after The Dummy attempted to get closer to The Presenter would be The Intimate Zone.

 

P.S. = Personal Space

 

Permitting a person to enter personal space and entering somebody else's personal space are indicators of perception of those people's relationship. How to protect your own personal space. What you lose by being confined in a personal space, and what you get for.

 

*p.s. ( *as postscript ) You are allowed to be where you are.
