In Théâtre de Poche a magician assembles a loose narrative out of a disperate body of printed images, continuously drawn out from the pockets of his suit and suspended in the air in front of him.
The Apse, the Bell and the Antelope is a guided tour of Arcosanti, American-Italian architect Paolo Soleri’s visionary and experimental town forever under-construction in central Arizona.
