As a musician, I have a strong connection with performance spaces of every kind, from the concert hall to the amphitheater. While not exactly a performance space in the same sense, a movie theater nevertheless can address the relationship, and potential connection, between performer and audience. The program provided for this project called for the inclusion of education, presentation, and gallery spaces; this solution creates a form and a circulation system emphasizing the interplay between production and audience.
