Skogholtet is the threshold between concrete and earthworms. It’s where asphalt is pierced by weed and the flowers smell like burnouts. Skogholtet is the proximity from nature to wires. The leak from transient teenagers making out to moss, mosquitoes and other larval creatures. Skogholtet is the space where the town bleeds into the forest. Where old secrets come back as ghosts. It’s from here where the ongoing choreographic research will be engaged.

“We like raw skin and flesh tunnel insides.
To turn something inside out, look at it, examine it, lick it, throw it against the wall, pick it up, put it back in. Our work departs from desire and we are drawn to collective working frames. Since 2013 we have been running Scene:Bluss a residency platform in Porsgrunn Norway. Scene:Bluss examines performing arts and its social mechanics as a means of community development within the field. Within this project we evolve strategies for facilitating and producing big collective sitespecific works, often under the tab of what we call the (im)-possible projects due to its self-inflicted, often absurd restrictions. During the residency we will develop methods based on these (im)- possible structures with the idea to use them for making new site-specific works.”
