BEAUFORT-LOCATION: HOLLOW IN THE DUNES NEAR THE KINDERLAAN, OOSTDUINKERKE

Tim Segers

°1983, Belgium 

With Youtheater.net Tim Segers interacts with the public space: at the hollow in the dunes he built a public amphitheatre, fully in harmony with the surroundings. The aim was to give the classic architectural shape a contemporary character so that it became a popular destination for visitors, who suddenly became actors themselves in the vast coastal landscape. He combined the public space with contemporary media: a camera started filming as soon as any movement was observed, and those images could be watched again on the internet. Consequently the amphitheatre became a means to create a collective archive. It could be used for free interventions, by the visitors or  for organised performances.
