Spectacle play, duration 28:00
Soft City/ Kunsthall Oslo

A play commissioned by Kunsthall Oslo that was a carnivalesque theatre performance that started with six figures on a hexagonal stage, a living sculpture acting out a ritual game that draws on Alfred Jarry, Samuel Beckett and European folk traditions. With the audience surrounding the performers on all sides, the play attempted to evoke scenery between animistic rituals and ludicrous gestures, and can be interpreted as an investigation of the dialectics between form and anti form and action versus apathy. A live soundtrack by the experimental musician G├Žoudjiparl was accompanying the piece, while Oslo-based contemporary dancers and performing artists made up the cast. The play took place at Kanonhallen, Thursday September 4th, 2014.

Performed by Henrik Plenge Jakobsen with Paulucci Araujo Bakke, G├Žoudjiparl, Snorre Hvamen, Ann Kristin Kongsness, Marte Reithaug Sterud, Sigrid Marie Kittelsaa Vesaas and Lila Wilson.
