2nd Performance of the BLIND SPOT production
As the project Blind Spot went into its second year of research, a series of exciting new activities have occurred or will soon be organised in several places like Oslo, Paris, Berlin, Quebec etc.
Blind Spot will open a new exhibition in the new “Medical” section of Teknisk Museum in Oslo in April 2019. Working our way towards this, we have organised a series of workshops led by Prof. Karen Kipphoff and Ellen Lange and Henrik Treimo (from NTM) during the first half of 2018.
Blind Spot will also go into a phase II of productions in 2018 and will leave the stage to young artists/choreographers/students to express what Blind Spot means to them.
Blind Spot will also go actively into a period of working towards the publication expected to be presented in June 2020.
