Lotte van den Berg
through the eyes of the spectator …
Looking, directing your gaze, seeing what has gone unnoticed and scrutinising your own way of seeing things. This is what was at stake in Cinema Imaginaire. Audiences created their own show with Lotte van den Berg and Howard Lotker, who guided them through the city of London and the imagination. Together they embarked on a journey of self-discovery through simple tasks and exercises. Reality became fiction without anyone noticing. Ugly little details came into view through the dramatic framework and relationships between people were scrutinised.
Whether you had lived in London for years or you had just arrived, Cinema Imaginaire gave its audiences a lasting, new perspective on their presence in the city – in the midst of others.
