Mette Edvardsen [BE/NO]
We to be
20.10 – 21.10.2017
Expand the stage
Mette Edvardsen is drastically expanding the classical stage. She is performing We to be at three locations simultaneously: in the book from which she reads aloud, on the empty stage as a projection screen of your imagination, and in the ether as a live radio broadcast. This production is the final instalment in Edvardsen’s trilogy in which language and voice predominate and visual aspects are transferred to the imaginations of the audience. In the first part, Black, she made invisible objects appear simply by naming them. In No Title, she did the inverse, by indicating what was not there.
• Choreographer, dancer and performance artist Mette Edvardsen always surprises us with refined performances. Black (2011) and No Title (2014) were previously performed at the Kaaistudios. During Performatik17, she presented oslo. And she was awarded the prestigious Norwegian Ibsen Prize for We to be.
