fractured bones/​let’s get lost

9.–16. september 2011

‘fractured bones/let’s get lost’ draws on ‘disappearance’ impulses to create a performance that brushes across theater, dance, live music and video installation to make a slippery and nebulous take on futurism.

Working once again with the core constellation of theater/video artist Iver Findlay, choreographer/dancer Marit Sandsmark, and musician/composer Pål Asle Pettersen, the performance will take shape from an exploration of the Flitcraft parable in Dashiell Hammett’s novel, ‘The Maltese Falcon’ (1930). Through this parable about a disappearerer, the piece explores the idea of object permanence and performance while picking apart other hard-boiled motifs to create a dialectic between the present and the future, and the interior and the exterior. The performance is set across a landscape of projections and trashed video monitors revealing a discourse over the natural and synthetic. The performance is made in collaboration with performer Eric Dyer and performer/video game modder Victor E. Morales.
