    We move from plan A to B to C to D.

    While everything is on hold, we pretend, we simulate, we try to continue and make do. While we reconsider the history that is our point of reference, we imagine the future in which we will all be here together again. We collaborate across distances and stage the spaces in which presently absent performers may one day make an appearance.

    We move in and out and focus on the space beyond the visible. The worlds underneath the surface we walk on. The landscapes under our feet. The layers beyond what is shown.

    Today’s new present presents itself as a challenge, as yet another space in which and with which to work, another space to interrogate, to infiltrate, to adapt to, and to subtly shift, from the inside out.

    Gone here (yet) to come was originally created for 5 dancers and performed in a theater space. For Altofest Valletta 2022, this piece will be translated into a solo version and will be presented in a domestic environment.


    Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki founded their own company fieldworks in 2000. Their work is concerned with “performativity” and allows for an open interpretation of movement as a heterogeneous combination of a variety of media. Consequently, they draw on a broad range of disciplines and expertise. They create projects in both theatrical and non-theatrical environments / spaces such as offices, hotels, supermarkets, etc. Through interaction with those familiar spaces and by treating them slightly differently, they suggest to rethink the notion of the everyday itself.
