“CARRY ON” at Rucka Artist Residency on 27 February at 17:00

“carry on” is the latest work by Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki. It is an intriguing performance-installation that each time is presented in a very different way depending on the place, be it the contemporary arts museum in Leuven or a huge culture complex in Tokyo. Now in collaboration with Latvian choreographer Elīna Lutce, it will be developed in Rucka artist residency centre in Cēsis and presented only once on February 27. The visitors will be invited on a walk in Rucka manor house where objects, sounds and live interventions will guide them through the undiscovered spaces in the building and help to find remainders of former actions while leaving traces of their own.

Created by Haine Avdal / Yukiko Shinozaki (NO/BE/JP) in collaboration with Elīna Lutce (LV). Performed by Heine Avdal, Agate Bankava, Taisija Frolova, Yukia Hashimoto, Elīna Lutce, Alise Putniņa, Krišjānis Sants, Yukiko Shinozaki.

The residency and performance at Rucka is a part of the project “Regions.Art.Nature” (EEZLV04/GSKA/2013/04) which is financed by a grant of 54028 EUR from Island, Lichtenstein and Norway via the EEA Financial Mechanism. The project aims to enhance the artistic exchange among Latvia, Norway and Iceland, and facilitate the development of residencies and artistic activities in rural regions of Latvia.

Free admission.
