The project Autonomous Scenography is based on the fascination of visual artist Meryem Bayram for pop-up books. She developed a series of forms made of sheet cardboard which can be unfolded from an apparently empty flat surface to a whole repertory of evocative scenic elements.
Different artists were invited to use their imagination on the material. In this way, the project demonstrates what happens when the scenography does not rely on a story or choreography, but the other way around. How can the performer, the sound artist or light artist contaminate these various scenic elements? In a silent but highly expressive game of forms , spaces, objects and worlds are set up, which reveal to what extent our perception of reality is determined by personal associations and memories.
