carry on is definitely one of those performances that should be experienced and not explained.” – Klassekampen

How does a space produce or affect movement? And how does movement, in turn, affect space? carry on is a site-specific production, entirely refigured for every new location where it takes place – in this case the old building of The Norwegian Bank, which until recently housed the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo. In collaboration with performers, actors and sound designers Avdal and Shinozaki stage a series of imaginative interventions in rooms, corridors and obscure hidden corners. The audience is invited to zoom in on strange details, and on the visible traces of the site’s past and present use. Slowly and subtly, the building is transformed into a fascinating alternative version of itself.

Yukiko Shinozaki was born in Japan and danced classical ballet from the age of 6 in Tokyo. After high school she moved to the US and studied contemporary dance and psychology at Portland State University. Heine Avdal studied dance at Oslo National College of the Arts and PARTS in Brussels, and has worked as a performer for various companies in his homeland Norway and abroad. In 2000, Shinozaki and Avdal founded fieldworks and have since created more than 20 productions together. Their productions have been made for a variety of settings, including a hotel room, an office and a supermarket.
