ASFALTPULS

ASFALTPULS

Asfaltpuls (Pavement Pulse) is a street art performance about alienation. In the performance, the audience encounter five characters who in various ways experience exclusion and alienation in a big city. Together, as a gang, they confront their existence.
Media’s depiction of youth in the Oslo suburbs, domestic violence, standards of beauty in cosumer society, anxiety and lonelieness appear in the performative landscape as the characters’ secrets and stories shine through the stereotypical surface. Their stories are told in a poetic language, cut to pieces and reassembled.
In Asfaltpuls, the gang are searching for clues, emergency exits and lights in the dark.
Where do you go if all roads appear to be the same? What do you try to reach of everything appears to be moving away from you? And where do you find hope if no-one tells you hope exists?
Asfaltpuls will travel the eastern part of Oslo from September 1st throug 22nd. The artists will appear at locations where young people spend their time, unnanounced.
Some of the performances are presented in collaboration with Kloden.
