Oslo - different locations | NO
New stage of the CRISOL – creative processes project which, after the one in India last February, moves to Norway.
Four young Italian artists, the dancers Valerio Palladino, Gennaro Lauro and Elisa Sbaragli and the video maker Rebecca Lena, together with the dancers Ingrid Haakstad and Sigrid Marie Kittelsaa Vesaas and the musician Johann Loiseau, will be in residency in Oslo from 7 to 13 May, and in Flørli, a small village in the fjords, from 28 May to 5 June.
In these two periods, accompanied by choreographers and dancers Heine Avdal (Norway) and Yukiko Shinozaki (Japan) as tutors, they will work on elsewhere & elsewhen, focusing on the theme of landscape.
The process will consist of a series of discussions and improvisations. Video will be part of this both as documentation and as an artistic product in itself.
Each work period will result in a presentation, which grafts on and reflects on the “landscape”, both in the meaning of our society – and the urgent social, economic and ecological issues we are confronted with today – and in the meaning of the concrete locations where these presentations will take place: both conventional and unexpected places, in a (major) urban or rural context.
The title of the project also refers to the reflection on our own “state of the art”, our own artistic trajectories and choreographic practice. How do we see the dance landscape/art landscape in relation to public space?
(Self) reflection is an important part of our artistic work in order to understand the impact of performing arts in a public space.
How can we compare or differentiate from other art forms present in public space?
