“Noise is the forest of everything”
Douglas Kahn – Noise, Water, Meat
SPOILER is the latest production by Berstad/Helgebostad/Wigdel. The piece premiered at Black Box Theatre in Oslo in February 2017, and has since toured MDT Stockholm, Moravske Divadlo in Olomouc and Rotterdam Theatre.
The piece explores outer and inner noise; how they can affect and harvest each other and how this can be developed through body movements and expression. In an unknown universe they seek the distorted, the darkness and the playfulness. There is no security, no immediate recognisability, but a world with countless layers of unexplored mechanisms and conditions. The distorted effect makes the ugliness and the grotesque seem poetic and almost beautiful.
