In the last three weeks I’ve been doing a lab-project with Øyvind Borgmoen Lyse, at the main stage, the Academy of Arts. We’ve been exploring a “scenographic instrument” that I’ve built, called “The Magnetic Forrest”, and by use of this instrument and space we’ve made a performance.
We are now producing the performance as a video, and will end the production at friday the 28.1
Been busy all autum with present and future projects. I will repeat will keep a more continous info on these pages from now on …
Anyhow – in august and september I did a production at the Academy of Arts with the 3.grade students.
I did a stage version of “Jaws”, combined with “Endgame” by Samuel Beckett. Photos and videos soon to be uploaded.
To get the project going, the winter has also been a lot about planning. This means developing concepts for performances I’m to do doing these three years. Some of these performances have a “long” horizon, and some have “shorter”, some have a lot of logistics and meetings, and some have not.
The lab-projects I’ve been doing this winter has partly been a practical part of this development, as I’ve been checking out ideas and doing prototype – testouts of instruments to be used on stage.
For the “critical reflection” of the project, I’m still concidering between doing a documentary video, or a combination of text and video, as the project do imply time and space.
No matter how I decide to do the critical reflection, I indend to look into what is actually happening on stage, in the relationship between acting, sound & music. In order to establish some kind of tool for this, I’m exploring how to connect structural tools from musical composition with tools for theatre.
During the winter, I participated in the classes of Lasse Thoresen at Norges Musikkhøgskole, on “musical semiotics”. This, and Lasses development of the “Aural Sonology”- project, may be a field of relevance to my project, which I will look further into as I’m developing performances.
