Performance on Falling

«Performance on Falling» is a surrealistic and playful performance in which the hierarchical relationship between gender and identity is dismantled.

Nilseng is inspired by the human being in free-fall and the body’s fragility and the struggle to remain standing, while shaping an atmosphere that invites new possibilities for seeing oneself in relation to one’s being in the world.
