The cards are not always put on the table straightaway and the colours they show are not necessarily the true ones. Pretty often things happen unannounced, thereby possibly changing the dye of what precedes them. Unannounced focuses on the way focus shifts when appearances change out of the blue.
On its way into the black box, the performance literally goes into detail, and sheds light on the small and the tiniest characteristics it passes by, highlighting them as fragments and partial aspects which disappear as soon as the next one shows up.
The performance wanders back and forth on the thin line between the ‘no longer’ and the ‘not yet’. Its journey through space also becomes a journey through time, unfolding a discontinuous, non-linear range of sensations, possibly confusing the anticipation of its future with echoes and afterglows from its past.
Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki have a special way of making the world around us seem a little bit different when we leave than it did when we arrived. We have previously enjoyed several of their delightfully charming and curious performances, such as you are here (spring 2009), Fieldworks – Hotel (Bastard 2010), nothing’s for something (Bastard 2012), Fieldworks: Office (spring 2013), and distant voices (Bastard 2015)
