This is a past event.
Over Our Heads is an installation that draws attention to choreographic and dynamic aspects. It places the public in a situation, a setting, where the elements in the space make it so that unspoken interferences with the work occur in a welcoming place set to be crossed by the visitor – to exist, to play and to invent, to bring forward all those things that go through our minds.
Play is a way of understanding and discovering the world; one that does not lose its meaning in later life. When we play we allow ourselves to flee from conventional behaviour, we let our guard down and arrive to a place of possibilities and inspiration, of trial and scrutiny, of trust and heeding.
OOH is an installation and the start of a choreography, which is to be built by the public itself out of perceptions, standpoints and likings. It is an invitation to explore both body and space, a place where everyone is a participant and an interpreter. We are choreography and scenography, composition and inventiveness. An ongoing composition-manifesto turning into a fleeting final art, from first to last breath.
