UVENTA takes us on a physical and visual experience – a symbiosis between dance, parkour, technology and media.
Between different layers of time and reality, we meet two parkour performers and a musician who, together with live projection of video and light, take us on unexpected transitions into a surreal, multidimensional space.
UVENTA lets us get close to the two parkour athletes. We get to feel how they are human, make decisions: they have to negotiate weight and heaviness, find a grip, help each other. They take risks, get red and tired, wobble, climb or fall, balance over the audience.
The scenography itself is a massive construction of pipes and “clamps”, which with the help of video projection and light are transformed into shadow cities and streams of pixels and light that devour the people and the bodies.
UVENTA allows the audience to be overwhelmed, but also to recognize the risk, and not least the play.
Antero Hein challenges parkour’s usual dynamics into a distinctive scenic expression.
