Robinson: The Other Island is part stage show, part radio play, and part ASMR experience, Robinson: The Other Island re-examinsed Defoe’s 300 year old classic: delving deep into the fantasy of the island, the violence of colonisation and the act of reading.
My design helps to isolate Bianca (the reader) in the “island” of her flat, a monolithic platform supported by layers of material stuff… which looks solid, but may be more precarious than she knows.
Meanwhile, Robinson roams the liminal space beyond…
