about

Machkhaani Theatre, Kakheti - 2nd TBILISI TRIENNIAL 2015

The task of the fictional administration is to set up a database of memories, wishes and also skills of the citizens of Machkhaani, in order to create new networks and collectives and revive the old spirit of the village, which once used to be a cultural hotspot for the region. All collected information will create a database which is the base of all performances and interventions that are going to take place during the Tbilisi Triennial in Machkhaani. Memories will be reenacted, wishes put into practice and skills shared. The theatre, once a place for exchange and shared knowledge, will be given back its old function and turned into a communal space in which new visions for Machkhaani are acted out. The performance is continuous and will run throughout the whole period of the Triennial. The end of the Triennial will mark the reopening of the old theatre, in a festive ceremony the theatre is handed back to the citizens of Machkhaani.
