Nada Gambier - Fiction in Action

mon 16/02/2015 > fri 20/02/2015

In Fiction in action Nada Gambier goes searching for the border between abstraction and narration, looking for material that carries the potential of narrative and yet avoiding the creation of ‘a story’ or a linear communication. In our need to understand and rationalize experience we sometimes fail to recognize the power of intuition. This piece is an attempt at accepting the not knowing while at the same time giving the viewer the freedom to create his own interpretation, be it rational or not, of what he experiences while watching, hearing and feeling.
Together with performer Norberto Llopis Segarra, composer Christophe Albertijn and light-designer Marc Dewit, Nada constructs an indeterminate fiction in which associations of meaning are triggered in the viewer. Her goal is to look for meanings that appear out of abstraction while allowing them to disappear and transform.
 Fiction in action is a performance that radiates a sense of purpose while by nature being non-sensical. For Nada the stage is a space in which a dialogue between performer and spectator contribute to the creation of possibilities and challenging perspectives on the way we function in the world. In Fiction in action imagination and intuition are what nurture this exchange.
