In their intimate and playful performances, Heine Avdal & Yukiko Shinozaki set out in search of the poetry of the everyday life. “Field Works” is a location-based project, which unravels the conventions of non-theatrical spaces. They seek to infiltrate different terrains and strata of society with artistic work. Codes and conventions in various types of spaces will be explored and discussed. Every location generates a certain kind of expectations and preconceptions of how we act in that specific space.
In this project they collaborate with sound artist Fabrice Moinet and comic book artist/performer Brynjar Åbel Bandlien. Through the use of sound displacements and cartoon like drawings, bodies and actions extend beyond their borders. By small shifts in reality, they create a dreamy, absurd, in-between world. It has the power to stimulate your imagination.
Field Works is a ‘site specific project’ that is different in every city and at every location it is shown, and where where every spectator will have a different experience. In these intimate and playful performances, Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki set out in search of the poetry of the everyday. Through tiny shifts in reality they create a dream like, absurd in-between world.
In Field Works-office, computers and fax machines lead a life of their own, and you yourself become part of a fictitious company. In a choreography of office-accessories, daily office situations grow into something absurd and unusual.
