Pluss Pluss, established in 2011, means nothing less than Black Box teater plus plus: an extension of the field of performing arts that the house already contains. Pluss Pluss is a multidisciplinary platform, inviting both emerging and established artists, and a meeting point where audience and artists can be inspired by each other.

As of Fall 2017, the concept of Pluss Pluss has been evolving. Concentrated on one evening every season, Pluss Pluss is curated by a guest artist – a different one every season – who has carte blanche to shake the format and the contents, while respecting three simple rules: have an open call for projects and proposals so that everyone is invited to contribute / compose a program crossing visual arts and performing arts / invite emerging artists.

This edition of Pluss Pluss is curated by Karen Nikgol. Born in Teheran, based in Oslo and having traveled extensively, Nikgol ́s work mixes cultural expressions and identities in an alchemical meltdown to find new ways of expression. Contemporary dance, choreography, raves, street cultures, new age and occultism all play into the body of work, investigating how to break down the boundaries between these. His works also incorporate performance documentations to produce further narratives, creating an abstraction of the original source material.

For this edition of Pluss Pluss, Nikgol has chosen themes that relate to crime, outsiders and personal shamanic myths.
