N2 - A Work on Progress was a three hour durational installation presented as part of the Forest Fringe Micro-Festival at the Arches arts centre in Glasgow. Programmed alongside ‘a carnival of intimate encounters, audio walks, installations, works-in-progress, secret adventures and interactive experiences’, the event took place in the studio theatre, separated from the rest of the festival in the Arches’ only designated theatre space. This project aimed to create an environment that could be continually altered and reconfigured by the labour of visitors to the studio. The title refers to the prevalence of the ‘work-in-progress’ model in contemporary theatre practice, indicating the unfinished, constantly developing aesthetic that I hoped to create. It also refers to the ‘progressive’ political aims underlying the work, particularly Massey’s understanding of the political dimension of social space as continually open to reconfiguration.
