Phantom Islands at Black Box Teater, Oslo
Waiting for the Sun is back for its second edition of an all-night journey, a durational and cross-disciplinary event that focuses on peculiar listening and hearing experiences. It explores voices and sound landscapes, through a con- stellation of immersive works.
While most of our season program is dedicated to the presentation of individual shows, we also wish to propose other formats with different agencies. Through 12 hours, Waiting for the Sun gathers artists working with various mediums in a common venue (Black Box teater as a whole), intended as a space for experiences, encounters, possible resonances and interferences. The night is composed of performances, shows, installation, sound installations, talks and films.
Waiting for the Sun is an invitation to a moment and a space where time is suspended, where aesthetic experience and theoretical contents are combined, where we are available to what we hear, where the withdrawal of prominent images generate another sense of awareness and sensitivity.
It is an invitation to embark on a journey with an incomplete map and find your own navigation, to open up the senses, feel the time dissolving softly and enter refracted landscapes. And maybe it will open up for specific states of attention, availability and perception. And maybe it will allow specific rooms of imagination and fiction, for producing images, for being with oneself together with others. Waiting for the Sun is a journey into the beauty of the unstable.
Waiting for the sun will include different works by musicians, performing and visual artists.
