Tale Dolven (NO) & Gabel Eiben (US): Assembly

It’s their first residency in BUDA. They’ll be working on Assemby. Point of interest is the assembly line; how to use the form of mass production in performance?  They intend to use live music, text and choreography as the elements to be assembled to create the product of a performance. 

This is the first residency for this project, a research/preparation phase - looking into discovering material that inspires them, to deconstruct it to its base elements.
