Something there

Spiral, Wacoal Art Centre, June 25, 2013 – Fatos Ustek and Per Huttner
The performance was a part of Godzilla and the Phoenix, the 11th OuUnPo session in Tokyo and Yokohama.

Taking the starting point in Nobel Laureate, Samuel Beckett’s 1974 poem entitled "Something There", Ustek and Huttner together with 13 members of the Japanese audience carried out a sonar/mathematical investigation. Together they explored the potentiality of the poem by an activating it in space and time. The performance took place in the service staircase of the art centre where an Araki piece formed an important backdrop for the performance. The photographic installation in itself is a reflection on experience versus image (inside outside) and his relation to the other (subject/object), offered a perfect setting for the experiment.

Getting Ready for Japan - Something there

 -We are currently preparing two performances in Japan.

Project for OuUnPo Japan, Yokohama, 4-5pm, June 23, 2013 – Fatos Ustek and Per Huttner.
Taking the starting point in Nobel Laureate, Samuel Beckett’s 1974 poem with the same title, Ustek and Huttner will be investigating how a poem is the opposite of stability and stasis and how it is informed by the outside world. The poem will be  recreated in three dimensions and focus on the senses beyond vision.

The performance is public and will be performed in the public space of Yokohama harbour. The poem will be divided into 28 different parts. Some of these will be presented in words, others by objects, smells, tastes and sounds.
