Spacing Out


Medium: Performance
Topic: Spacing Out

Spacing Out is a site-specific performance by the newly created Lynghøj-lakes in Roskilde. As a piece, it creates a space for contemplation. A lingering for an extended time. It gives the audience space to feel the many layers of time that surround us and which create the location´s uniqueness in every moment. Here, many types of movement unfold simultaneously. Everything from the constant rippling of the water to the geometric formations of the flying swallows. From the movement of the sand underneath one's soles to the rhythmical dance of the tectonic plates.

In Spacing Out, the landscape is as important as the performers. Spacing out connects the wandering gaze of the audience with the transformations of the cloud formations and the dance of the performer. Letting the dancing color the setting of the sun. The landscape is involved in its entirety.

Spacing out suggests stories and relationships without conclusions. It reminds us of how complex the impact of places is on our bodies, our thoughts – and our imagination.
