Österreichische Erstaufführung

“An intense and out-of-the-ordinary experience – HOODS communicates with the audience in a way I’ve never experienced before. It avoids representation and creates in collaboration with the audience a collective ceremony where you emotionally fluctuate between fascination, unease and harmony.” Ragni Vik Johnsen, Radio Nova (Oslo)

In the twilight zone between performance and installation, HOODS manifests itself as a meeting in a secret and so far unknown universe, in which the boundaries between performer and spectator, choreography and scenography become blurred. In their performance Night Tripper, which took place in the summer of 2012 as part of the brut festival Up to Nature in the Vienna Woods, Ingri Fiksdal and Signe Becker already proved they have a feel for atmospheric situations and suspenseful settings beyond the traditional stage. Their new piece HOODS tackles the phenomenon of the “uncanny valley”, feelings of revulsion or unease people experience when confronted with figures that look almost human, but are inanimate. The audience is invited to move about freely in a performative space of moving bodies, light and sound and discover the dark corners of an atmospheric-psychedelic landscape. HOODS plays with the boundaries between the human and the non-human and disorients the senses. The performance thus unfolds to become a collective ceremony, in which the spectators experience their environment and bodies in an extraordinarily intensive way.
Ingri Fiksdal’s works largely focus on perception and affectivity, e.g. of bodies and body shapes. The audience is always integrated in the action to create temporary constellations and alliances between performers and spectators. Signe Becker is a freelance stage designer and visual artist. Her works include designs for classical theatre and dance productions as well as her own creations, such as installations and videos. For HOODS, the two artists received the award of the Norwegian Critics’ Association.
