Heine Avdal & Yukiko Shinozaki / Fieldworks


Field Works,  they call them – the performances with which Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki take the audience on a trip to an absurd world, the mystery and the poetry of the trivial. At first their locations look like everyday reality but very soon little shifts occur. In  Nothing’s for something choreographers-dancers Avdal and Shinozaki investigate their own starting-points, the originality of their movements and motives –if anything like originality actually exists- and the influence of previous location projects on the large auditorium –production of today. The performance wants to expose the hidden moments of life and the reality behind the visible world. Sources of inspiration are Paul Klee, Rainer Maria Rilke and Georges Perec.

Until recently Avdal and Shinozaki realised their performances under the name deepblue (with Christoph De Boeck) Now it’s just the two of them and they call themselves fieldworks. Fieldworks is settled in Brussels.
