Welcome, citizens. Enter the black box in a future present. The cameras and screens will be watching. Hear the sound of the inbetween calling from another room. Worship algorithms and find your love. Space-operas and an eternal stream of information will flow from the telescreen. Recharge your cells in the Cybar. We’ll meet in a poisoned reality inside the construct, together with our infiltrating machines. Through rituals, technology and longing we will find a way back to the forest where our soul reigns. In other words: join us for an evening of art, performance, concerts, films, each other and fun in general. Remember to download antivirus patches for your implants.
Høstpunkt is an eight year old festival in Skien. This journey led us here to the Black Box teater and Pluss Pluss. We will present both old “høstpunks” and new acquaintances and are looking forward to when the doors open to the public this fall.
Welcome, all citizens. Welcome.

Grennes is concerned with humility, naivety, pride, silence, imagination, life before death and free art. He has worked with a number of Norwegian companies and festivals. In 2020, he has also established the Vårpunkt (Spring Point) mini-festival in Langesund, which is postponed until 2021. This fall, he wants to bring the red thread from Høstpunkt to Pluss Pluss.
