Requirements to venue
"Are we who live here and now capable of doing anything great? Or are we simply too busy doing so much else? This is one of the things Are Kalvø tries to find an answer to in his first solo performance. He has scrutinised statistics from the time use survey done by Statistics Norway, and found the strangest things on which we spend a lot of time. He shamelessly uses himself as an example, and searches for signs for grand ideas during his upbringing, among friends, in daily life, in news, in politics and in sports. Something we must be really good at, better than anyone before us in the history of humanity. But what?"
