EMPTY WAREHOUSE (2018)
Tomt Magasin (ENG: Empty warehouse) is the fourth performance of the performance series based on the history of the so-called Tyskmagasinen, the warehouses in the former industrial harbour of Karlshäll, Luleå. This years episode refers mainly to the time period of 1962 - 2016 when they were empty and desolate.
Now, the audience is invited to enter the warehouses for the first time, through their imagination. Tomt Magasin gives you the possibility to experience the warehouses spatially and materially, through traces, tactile memories, soundscapes and ambience.
The work investigates various sensory stimuli, and aims to recreate the warehouses that were burnt down in the summer of 2016. Our aim is to communicate through the human body in a direct, intuitive, and almost subconscious way. It questions whether there's a way to choreograph and add up various components, that altogether generate direct and inescapable associative and bodily experiences, or subtle detailed perception. Our interest lies in the body’s own capacity of receiving a multitude of sensory stimuli and constructing a meaningful relation between them.
Tomt Magasin is a site specific participatory performance, performed for one audience member at a time. A physical guide will escort you through the piece, and audio instructions tell you when to move forward, to stop, or close your eyes. This means there's no conventional audience, but only yourself experiencing the performance from the inside.
