Box with holes by Heine Røsdal Avdal belongs to an extremity come to expression, in being an extraordinary exclusive production. In a 10-15 minute session the spectator and choreographer are alone together the correlation between touch and visualisation is examined.

Box with holes focuses on a displacement of the senses, which places the spectator into another mental state. The intention is to make the spectator go through a physical experience of touch during the performance and see if this can affect perception. How do we see and experience inter-human interaction in a world where we contact each other increasingly often through technology? Box with holes is an intimate and anonymous experience that feels real, but looks and appears different through the use of video.

Box with holes by Heine Røsdal Avdal was supported by Arts Council Norway and The Fund for Performing Artists.

In Trondheim Box with holes by Heine Røsdal Avdal was presented in collaboration with ISFiT (The International Student Festival in Trondheim).
