“With unannounced, Fieldworks have created an intelligent work about theatre…” Tanz Magazin

“It is an unbelievably clever performance…” Ruhrbarone

Unannounced incidents can change your perception of the past and the future. As hidden details emerge from the dark they jolt you out of your familiar outlook and rhythm. The guideposts and perspectives you usually adhere to slip away and are replaced by transient fragments of sensory impressions and images. The here-and-now is just a thin membrane between what has been and what might be.

In unannounced the audience embarks on a sensual journey deep into the darkness of the theater, where nothing is certain except for the disorienting power of illusion and imagination. On this journey time is neither linear nor cyclical, but fluctuating and discontinuous. The performance plays with perception and perspective as it loads each moment with both expectation and longing before dissolving into new impressions and experiences or fading to black.

Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki create performative situations colored by their characteristically warm humor and poetic aesthetics. They invite the audience to experience the rich, imaginative potential of the fundamental elements of performing art: body, time, space, sound, object and text. Performances are often notable for their capacity to bridge disciplines and weave together different elements and technologies. Productions are not necessarily thematic, but rather explorations of relationships and perceived tensions between spectator and performer, tangible and intangible, organic and artificial, reality and fiction.
