Songs of the Uncontained (2019)

A performance in 2 parts. 


In this performance we meet Talluz, an alga organism with mediumistic abilities. Talluz normally lives in the kelp forests along the Norwegian coast, but has now come to land to facilitate a conference for the inhabitants of the kelp forest. The inhabitants are summoned through a live stream so they can address the audience. There they share reflections about their lives, dreams, and worries. 


In part 2 Talluz has a dialouge with a starfish. Through the discussion Talluz explains to the starfish the differences between it and humans. How humans see themselves as separated from their environment, and how that affects their actions.
