The project provided us with a rich environment and a context bursting with art, culture and Amman’s special topography. The theatre’s neighboring mountain embraced Amman’s oldest theatre, it’s Roman Amphitheatre. The heart and center of the city, surrounding that first theatre Amman started to grow. Buildings grew up on that mountain, and the theatre kept breathing at its base until this day. We decided to carry those weaving lines, nature and art ,and to install them on our new theatre wall.
The installation exhibits all the layers of it concept, it portrays Ammans nature, urbanity and distinctive topography. It celebrates its earliest art hub and recreates it in a new location, all with low cost authentic materials.
The installation will reuse wood of construction sites, and to make it more sustainable, special paint that collects sunlight at day and glows at night will be used to light up the wall installation. For it to be green, alive and regenerative, just as art and theatre, the lines of the earliest theatre stones will be carried on our new theatre built stones to breathe simultaneously.
