If a sense of archaeological presence always calls up its past and present, what can it become in response to a sense of paper futurity for us who dwell in and through it? And what can happen to our own flesh and bones in the process?

House Test will interrogate certain possibilities of presence and being in relation to the paper house, its cultural, social, political and psychological meanings. A series of choreographic propositions will be performed that engage with constructions of the everyday, notions of listening, community, intimacy and a sense of being in a paper world and Gallery.
