Amphibious Trilogies

PASSAGE: An artistic research event

31 October 2019 : 1200–1700
Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO)
Academy of Dance
Host: Amphibious Trilogies Artistic Research Project
Free attendance, registration required

Amphibious Trilogies is a developmental arts and practice based inquiry realised through an extended choreography.

The main goal is to artistically explore and monitor littoral spaces via an extending choreography of related literal, bodily and border conditions, environments and communication.

This event draws together experience and insights from this leading senior level three-year collaborative transdisciplinary artistic research project. The event leads up to a final artistic research seminar to be hosted by the project in early 2020.

This seminar will focus on the theme of PASSAGE, partner to Island and Pond, in the Amphibious Trilogies project.

The seminar is free and open to KHIO colleagues and students, and to others motivated to participate on the theme of Passage in the context of extended choreography.
