LEM

LEM is a form of object theatre that involves the movement of architectural structures, rather than bodies. The idea is to create abstract structures that can be manipulated by people to create a performance and a sense of story. The focus is on the idea of depicting certain emotions through which a narrative is formed.

Our first session within this project was spent creating architectural structures out of bamboo, paper and tape that responded to a certain one of the 7 deadly sins. Our group chose to attempt pride, and for this we created a tall pointy structure that was almost an extension of a person. To this structure, we attached another element based on the opening of a peacocks tail. The structure itself was able to tell the story of pride through the movement of the person operating it as well as the structure itself.
