Scrapland: An Immersive Exploration of the Politics of Space


A family struggles to remain standing after the loss of its patriarch, while disaster stalks them from beyond their home. A soldier marches home through the detritus of a bombed-out American city, unsure what awaits him but daring to hope nevertheless. Neither here nor there, Scrapland is a place torn to shreds by a violence that erupts from the inside and seeps from the outside, where sanctuary is no longer a place but a placating fantasy.

Written by Hannah Bisewski and directed by Peter Petkovsek, Scrapland is an exploration of the politics of space through installation, performance, and design elements, wherein participants are subject to the constant redrawing of borders, both political as the war zone closes in, and in performance as the spaces between participant and performer alter and collapse. It is an immersive exploration of space and security through live performance, taking place in a gutted 19th century bank in Bed Stuy. Audience members will have the opportunity to explore this vast, darkened space as the story of a family trying to survive an apocalyptic class war unfolds around them.
