While most of our season program is dedicated to the presentation of individual shows, we also wish to propose other formats with different agencies. Through 12 hours, Waiting for the Sun gathers artists working with various mediums in a common venue (Black Box teater as a whole), intended as a space for experiences, encounters, possible resonances and interferences. The night is composed of performances, shows, installation, sound installations, talks and films.

Waiting for the Sun is an invitation to a moment and a space where time is suspended, where aesthetic experience and theoretical contents are combined, where we are available to what we hear, where the withdrawal of prominent images generate another sense of awareness and sensitivity. It is an invitation to embark on a journey with an incomplete map and find your own navigation, to open up the senses, feel the time dissolving softly and enter refracted landscapes. Waiting for the Sun is a journey into the beauty of the unstable.

Waiting for the sun will include different works by musicians, performing and visual artists.

Waiting for the Sun is curated by Anne-Cécile Sibué in collaboration with Mette Edvardsen, Ida Holthe Lid, Pedro Gómez-Egaña. Thanks to them for inspiring conversations and contributions to the program. Coordinator / producer: Ida Holthe Lid
