A gap can be a movement
A gap can be a thought
A gesture can mean many things
in gaps & patches takes place in different types of locations in a city. Seven performers present unplugged sculptures set out on a journey through the city of Oslo. They move along different pathways passing slowly through different types of sceneries.
This is a durational and fluid performance with no beginning and no end. The performance adapts to situations, settings and contexts at hand in an ongoing search for interaction with the environment. By employing bodies, textiles and other materials, the performers measure and produce frames that emphasize specific aspects and scales in a larger landscape, as part of an urban image or in a natural area. By integrating such frameworks, it highlights alternative readings of the body’s connection to time, space and the environment.
Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozakis / fieldworks create projects in both theatrical and non-theatrical environments. Through interaction with well-known rooms and by treating them a little differently, one can rethink one’s own perception of everyday life. Avdal and Shinozaki have previously visited Black Box teater and Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival with a number of performances, among them gone here (yet) to come and carry on.
