This film was made for the 20-year anniversary of Teatro di Nascosto ("Hidden Theater"), between November 23 and 25, 2018. The actors of Teatro di Nascosto came from several Middle East and Western countries to celebrate their anniversary in Volterra, Italy. We’ve asked the actors to bring some soil or sand from the place where they live and tell us about their relationship with land.
The whole production was created during the festival and presented on the final evening.
Watch this short impression of the permanent installation Iris and I made during our residency at Leveld Kunstnartun in Norway.
CreDogma features 8 consecutive discs of a 147 year old pine, inscribed with the worries and wishes of 8 local inhabitants.
The work is partly inspired by writer Jens Bjørneboe who stated that being 'unfree' is easier than being free. The image of his typewriter hammering away at the dogmas that plagued Norwegian society in his time is in there.
In the plinth a 5.1 surround soundscape is playing.
You can watch "The making of CreDogma", cut to the full subtitled soundscape here.
Nice article from The Guardian on the contest and show I helped to produce.
April 9th in a cinema near you, this animation movie for which I did all sound, will feature. Very very proud of the result!
