Below: Three theatrical projects by Selgas Cano: 1. Auditorium in Cartagena, Plasencia, 2. Auditorium and Congress Centre, 3. Merida Factory Youth Movement. In these three projects you can see how the auditorium and surrounding spaces vary in their conceptual and organisational principles. In 1. the auditorium sits at the end of a linear route, which includes ramps, stairs and public spaces. In 2. everything is far more compact and the auditorium sits in the middle of a contained vertical assembly of spaces. In 3. there is no formal auditorium. Instead, a number of spaces operate within forms which themselves support a large canopy. The canopy defines and covers territory between and around the forms, which becomes an informal field of performative events.
