Suchan Kinoshita

PLATZhalter takingPLACE surPLACE

It happens when we’re not looking ... years ago, Suchan Kinoshita wanted to see Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Tickets were sold out, so an hour before the play started she snuck in via backstage. She sat quietly in the back row of the gallery. A cleaning lady started sweeping between the seats, working her way back from the front row. Simultaneously, one by one the stage lighting of the first act was switched on. The lit scene of a dining room. The cleaning lady continued until she came to Kinoshita. She asked if she had a ticket, but it was no longer necessary: Kinoshita had seen the ideal platzhalter.
