PUST/EXHALE
HAUGEN PRODUCTIONS - PER MARTINSEN/MENTAL OVERDRIVE - LAWRENCE MALSTAF

Dance by Liv Hanne Haugen and electronic sounds, performed live by one of Norways leading and internationally acclaimed electronic musicians Per Martinsen, communicate abstractly and open - sometimes violently and loud, other times soft and quiet, with each other, always in presence of the sound of breathing. Visual artist Lawrence Malstaf is manipulating, pulling and re-shaping the bubble in a dance that also makes the audience move. Textfragments by Vibeke Thorp. 
With scientific prose, intestinal dance and cutting edge electronic sounds, the audience is invited inside a large inflated bubble where performers and visitors become one and the invisible air is shared as a physical and tangible medium.
