Ruhanie Perera and Jake Oorloff co-created Floating Space in 2007. Gaza Monologues was their latest production, running to packed houses and good reviews recently in Colombo. As noted on the  group’s blog,

Floating Space a theatre company that is committed to experimentation, Floating Space is inspired by the unconventional and shared experiences in performance. Its focus is to create and produce performance, with the objective of exploring the possibilities of theatre in terms of form, style, space, approach and purpose.

Groundviews interviewed Ruhanie and Jake to find out more about the production, their future and theatre in Sri Lanka. A review of the production will be posted on Groundviews soon.
