PUST / EXHALE28.09.2017 - 01.08.2017
To breathe is the first and last we do.
We breathe about 1000 liters a day. Without breath, no life.
Three performers walk on huge grey materials that slowly rise under them. When fully inflated the audience is invited inside the 12 x 18m big bubble and sees a body in ever shifting colours floating like a cocoon over their heads.
This is the start of the performance PUST/EXHALE that aims to bring attention to breathing as an interactive element, connecting us all.
Première PUST / Exhale13.11.2016
Arctic Culture Centre, Hammerfest (NO)
This project has its starting point in a movement we all share: breathing. Through dance, installation art and electronic music and by roles between performer and audience which are sliding and shifting, we hope to move from an I to a we, from individual to community. The project seeks to strengthen the self-esteem through community as a starting point. A multitude of unique breath. The project seeks to create a space where the public will own habits and BREATHE conscious to contribute to greater freedom of action, individually and collectively.

Premiere 'State & Ecstasy'24.05.2016
FESTSPILLENE I NORD-NORGE
'State & Ecstasy' is a performance with dance, installation, music, poetry: five artists dig into collectivity, both politically and existentially. The result is a subjective and beautiful examination of individualisation and freedom, and a fervent desire - both in art and politics - to achieve a collective ecstasy.
