Heine Avdal & Yukiko Shinozaki / fieldworks [BE]
nothing's for something
23.03 – 24.03.2012
Field Works is the collective name given to the performances with which Heine Adval and Yukiko Shinozaki won a place for themselves on the international scene in recent years. They were fascinating, slightly creepy performances performed in semi-public places (hotels, office buildings and so on). Small shifts in the daily routine created an absurd dreamlike world.
Avdal and Shinozaki, dancers by training, are now making a return to theatre. The intention behind nothing’s for something is to make the hidden moments in life visible and expose the reality behind the visible world. Their sources of inspiration are Paul Klee, who danced while he painted, Rainer Maria Rilke, the perfectionist of form and method, and Georges Perec, the master of stories of everyday life. In nothing’s for something, Avdal and Shinozaki go back to their roots and allow the experiences of their site-specific projects to permeate this production for larger theatres.
Until recently this duo worked under the name ‘deepblue’, but this has now changed to ‘fieldworks’.
