Deep Field centers around running and its a ective qualities, for both performers and the audience.

Amongst runners, the much sought-after “Runners’ high” denotes the a ective state of euphoria where endorphins are released into the body, acting in a similar way to their medically engineered counterpart, morphine. They serve as a painkiller, and have through evolution helped human survival through providing extra stamina, for instance when hunting animals. Endorphins are produced in the pre-frontal and limbic regions of the brain, which also light up in response to emotions, like love.

In Deep Field Fiksdal investigates how to produce this love-like euphoria amongst the running performers, and to what degree it can be contagious for the audience. The work is based on ideas of kinesthetic transference; that one body can experience the movement of another empathically through watching, feeling and hearing its presence in space. The music is composed by Jenny Hval and Lasse Marhaug.

Ingri Fiksdal has gained an international reputation as a choreographer. Her work has been co-produced and presented by Black Box teater on several occasions. The performance Night Tripper (2012) received the Natt & Dags Oslo Award and HOODS (2014) was awarded the Dance Critics Award from the Norwegian Critics’ Association. Cosmic Body was nominated for The Hedda Award for Best Scenography and Costume Design. Her recent work Diorama for Huk was presented during Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival in March 2018.
