Going to a theatre is not only watching a show, it is also being and feeling like part of an audience. Serrucho, an originally visual arts-oriented group, stresses the inherent complexities in any collective meeting with their theatrical immersive installation. An audience shares a room, the air in it, an experience. There’s a distinct feeling of shared presence, of having been there together: you, I, we. No one else. Not as passive recipients but as intertwined actors, cocreators of a unique moment.
Poorly lit and filled with shelves covered in dust and reaching up until the ceiling: This is how our imagination commonly references an archive. But an archive is a place, any place actually, where things live on. Our bodies, for example, can be thought of as archives of physical and emotional traces, constantly feeding our conception of the world. Zen Philosophy teaches us to see the whole world surviving – being archived – in every sheet of paper. In it, the tree, the sun and the rain that helped it grow, the lumberjack who brought it down and the wheat that was needed to make the bread for his breakfast, live on.
In Archivo, every audience member becomes a character within a similarly layered system. Guided over headphones, every drawer one person opens will open or close another one, affecting the experience of the rest. With this installation Serrucho fittingly reminds us of a lesson that can be drawn from present times. Whether looking at the pandemic or the acknowledgement of institutionalized racism in western countries, the same applies: We depend on each other to survive. And reality cannot be divided into simple boxes.
