EXPLORATION AUTUMN (Nov. – Dec. 2009)
Nov-04-09 - 22:41
The crew at Haugar is great, many thanks for your support! The preview of the performance went very well and it was great talking to people afterwards to hear what they were experiencing. We've only been able to realise this performance with the support of the Goethe-Institut, nice that they came along today from Oslo, although one of the trainees got sick during the show. We hope our performance had nothing to do with that, and she's feeling better by now. Outside it started to snow.

Yesterday we arrived at Tønsberg, which is probably the oldest town in Norway. We parked our exploration vehicle in front of the Haugar Art Museum, which lies on a hill inside the city. Here we will play our preview performance today at 17:00, the last hours we've been busy preparing and testing. We are waiting for the NRK TV team who will film the performance for "Safari". The air smells like snow.

Naked as we came
Sorry we cannot provide a photo of the following event, it happened too fast. When we were waiting for the ferry in Puttgarden, a few lanes next to us stood a car that was crammed with people. We heared them shouting when suddenly their car's rear door flew open and a guy jumped out, wearing nothing but underpants. He stood there for a second, dropped his underpants and started a naked sprint in our direction. A moment later we heared the sound of his hand smacking the back of our camping car and while the crowds were cheering, he sprinted back and vanished into where he came from. Did Global Warming make this possible? Probably alcohol did.

We are packing our stuff in front of the new Haldern Pop building in the centre of Haldern. Here we built up and tested our performance equipment during the last days. The 2010 Haldern Pop Festival has the topic "Klima im Wandel der Zeit", which is a kind of a German wordplay and refers not only to a change in climate but furthermore to a change in society. Haldern Pop is the main supporter for our Autumn Exploration, and will feature our logbook on their festival website.

Talking loud and clear
One could say that these fellows are the Haldern versions of reindeers. Although the scene looks very peaceful, it is mating season and this guy runs around a lot, making load and clear that he is the man around here. Even during the night.

Soon our Exploration Autumn will begin. We will do a preview of the Memoria Norway live performance at the Haugar Art Museum Tönsberg/Norway before we will start in the direction of the Finnmark. On the photo you see the nearly finished light-table which we use for the visuals during the performance. It was built by a carpenter from Haldern.
