Twice a year, the festival Buda Vista presents theatre, dance, performance, film and/or installations which were (partly) made in the BUDA studios in Kortrijk. Some of them have already toured extensively, but many are brand-new creations.
"oslo" by Mette Edvardsen
October 7th 2017
With this new piece Mette continues the process of writing that she's developed in previous works. In the trilogy Black (2011), No Title (2014) and We to be (2015), she was exploring the possibilities and limits of language and how this extends into real space. The access to imagination took place through language, and the closeness to the audience developed with the writing. With oslo she aims at another way of generating presence and imagination, where not only the performer on stage is central to what is taking place. This time the writing extends into the whole theatre space, multiplying the voices, the actions, the moments, the imaginations – the things and the beings.
