Occupied offers audiences a glimpse at unexpected activities, environments and opportunities present in seemingly vacant spaces. The performance challenges the viewer’s ideas and convictions about perspective, proportion, value and our tendency to discard or alter places and things that have outlived their intended use.
Occupied was presented the unfinished lower level space at Castleberry Point in the Castleberry Hill Arts District of Atlanta for Flux Night 2011.
