Deed of Arrangement

A mayor and other people are being held hostage in a city hall, the audience is watching the projection and live performance from the outside of the building.

In the artistic project Deed of Arrangement, the focus is on contradictory elements as for ex. the notion of fiction versus non-fiction and real time (here and now) versus past experiences. In a building, neighbours enter into conflict without an explanation. A film projected on the window of the ground floor apartment, shows us gradually the reasons for this conflict.

The public, installed on a square outside, watches the ongoing event, but never fully grasps the dynamics of it all until the problem is solved by the removal of one of the protagonists. This micro-organism might appear a fantastical one but maybe on the contrary, reflects and voices a deeper truth in our society?
