Pluss Pluss

kuratert av Ingvild Langgård

29. okt. 2019

Pluss Pluss, established in 2011, means nothing less than Black Box teater plus plus:an extension of the field of performing arts that the house already contains.

Pluss Pluss is a multidisciplinary platform, inviting both emerging and established artists, and a meeting point where audience and artists can be inspired by each other.

As of Fall 2017, the concept of Pluss Pluss has been evolving. Concentrated on one evening every season, Pluss Pluss is curated by a guest artist – a different one every season – who has carte blanche to shake the format and the contents, while respecting three simple rules: have an open call for projects and proposals so that everyone is invited to contribute / compose a program crossing visual arts and performing arts / invite emerging artists.

Ingvild Langgård is a composer, musician and artist educated at the Academy of Fine Art, Oslo. She works with music, live performance, sound art and performing arts, and has released two albums under the name Phaedra. She has also collaborated with choreographer Ingri Fiksdal and scenographer Signe Becker on several projects. New Skin, created with Signe Becker, premiered at Black Box teater during Ultimafestivalen in 2017. 

At a time of increasing awareness of the climate crisis, many speak of the urgency to attune to the rhythms of the natural world, to remember that we are but one of many parts in a big, vibrant tapestry of life forms that live and breathe together on this planet. Through creating art, may we connect to other life forms, and achieve a state of conversation, society and community?

This Fall, Pluss Pluss is looking for art projects that in some way search for a possible interconnectedness with the other-than-human world.
