Heine Avdal (NO/BE) and Yukiko Shinozaki (JP/BE) are regular guests at BUDA in Kortrijk. They worked on (and presented) a series of productions in Kortrijk (Some notes are, Field Works-office, nothing’s for something, Borrowed Landscape, distant voices…), always creating a unique, dreamlike and often absurd universe by means of small shifts in the daily routine.
