A Reconciliation Initiative in the North, Sri Lanka
The project further attempts to experiment on the “theater” as a medium to extend the reconciliation process to the grass root level while experimenting the utilization of a performance space in two dimensions as a fixed space and a mobile space.
The architecture of this project was generated through seven strategies and principles followed by them, that was derived in the problem solving process.
Phasing of the project was not essentially constructional but as a method of community involvement with the agenda of this initiative as much as possible.
Mobile theater installation designed to travel to popular public places in the region such as “Kovil” premises or local school playgrounds whilst the fixed spatial facilities including a residential drama school is proposed at Kilinochchi town center in progressive, phased development.
