Teater Fot is working on a new artistic research project about 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.
The Neither fish nor fowl Project will be conducted during one year, from April 2017 to April 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, will open the research process for artists and researchers in the field of theatre for early years.
The first performance presentation, which is for babies (0-2 years) was shown at the festival Olavsfestdagene in Trondheim 2. and 3. August 2017, and further developed at gallery Trondheim Kunsthall in november 2017. Second part for children (3-5 years) will be presented in April 2018 in co-production with Teaterhuset Avant Garden, Trondheim.
Scenography is inspired by nature and archeology, discovering multiple layers of materials on our journey to the bottom of the ocean.
