Arter presents oslo (2017) by Mette Edvardsen, a performance scheduled to take place at Karbon on 15–16 February 2020 as the last piece of the Participation section of Arter’s Performance Programme curated by Selen Ansen. Following Evardsen’s performance oslo, Arter’s Performance Programme will continue with its third and last section titled Resonance.
Drawing from Mette Edvardsen’s ongoing concern for writing as part of her artistic practice, oslo is a staged performance that explores the limits and the possibilities of language by materializing it in real space. The piece invites the audience to experience ways of generating presence, activating imagination, multiplying voices and thinking performance beyond the presence of a performer on stage.
The performance will be in English.
Tickets at Arter. Admission: 50 TL. Discounted: 40 TL.
