We are still watching is a show performed by spectators; by an instant community of “audience members” that changes every evening of the show. And as they change the piece also radically changes every time that it is performed. We are still watching has a form of a “reading rehearsal” in which spectators encounter each other while reading a script together. During approximately an hour spent in company of each other spectators create and perform a community, making decisions individually and collectively while « simply » reading a text that someone else has written for them. In the “mini-society” that gets created each evening of the show, everybody slowly but surely gets his or her role… Everybody speaks in the “I-form”, everybody reads badly and everybody engages one way or another although no one ever read the script before and no one knows what will happen next.
We Are Still Watching is a piece in which the idea of “spectacle” slowly shifts to where we least expect it. Something that for a moment could look like a bad theatre becomes an invitation to look beyond of what is being scripted. While still staying in the realm of theatre and representation WASW leaves place for something “real” to happen.
