ON Score asks us to consider a shifting spectrum between the singularity of the script and the plurality of the score, challenging the relationship between the written, inscribed, or etched, and the performed, live, or imagined. The situation of a black box theatre at Bats Theatre offers an intimate acoustic range and potential friction to the differentiation between live art and theatre. It is an opportunity to test the limits of the theatre space's interior contours, audience-performer relationships, and the affective qualities of darkness. 

Turn Three is situated at BATS Theatre, a venue for the development of new theatre practitioners and plays in New Zealand. With three recently renovated performance spaces, it is located in the central city of the country's capital, Wellington.
