Teater Fot is working on a new artistic research project in theatre for early years. The research project consists of theatre making, film making, and writing, investigating the significance of affect, both as philosophical, emotional and material inspiration.
Strange animals, happiness, fear and curiosity are mixed with layers of different materials to create an ongoing transformation of new becomings and beginnings.
The Neither fish nor fowl Project will be conducted over one year, from April 2017 to September 2018. During this period, the research process will be documented, and presented in the Research Catalogue. Documenting the process, presenting research methods, writings and artistic results along the way, we wish to open the research process for artists and researchers in the field of theatre for early years.
