Transit ends with a remarkable production, for which composer Rolf Wallin and scenographers/choreographers Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki bring together musicians, audience and stage elements into an encompassing experience.

Rather than attending a concert, the audience is entering a ritual, the purpose of which is unknown to them, but clearly of utmost importance for those involved.

In THE OTHEROOM everything moves. The musicians have no fixed spot. There are no chairs, the audience is free to move or being moved. Elements of the room, the theatre, become part of the ritual, the movements, and serve as physical manifestations of the musicians' thoughts and its interactions.

fieldworks

fieldworks is the organization that creates, produces, distributes and promotes the artistic work of Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki. Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki's work is concerned with “performativity” and allows for an open interpretation of movement as a heterogeneous combination of a variety of media. Recurrent themes in Avdal and Shinozaki’s productions include the relationship between performer and spectator, the non-hierarchical approach to the various elements of a performance, and the exploration of both theatrical and non-theatrical environments.
