October 2017, Valletta Malta
During the week leading to the 7th October 2017 we adapted Upstairs Geology-I (premiered at DasArts, Amsterdam in June 2017) to an unconverted construction site in Strait Street, Valletta, Malta. The site presented different opportunities then the white cube studio set-up we had previously. Together with a dedicated team we transformed the site to host a 5-hour durational performance installation.
