Pluss Pluss, established in 2011, means nothing less than Black Box teater pluss pluss: 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.
Previous curators for Pluss Pluss includes Ingvild Langgård, Karen Nikgol, Hanan Benammar and Helle Siljeholm.
About the curator: Kristian Grennes is a freelance artist and producer from Porsgrunn with a background from the actor education at NISS. He is the director of the art festival Høstpunkt i Skien, which started in 2013 and follows the white rabbit.
Grennes is concerned with humility, naivety, pride, silence, imagination, life before death and free art. He has worked with a number of Norwegian companies and festivals. He is also working to establish the Spring Point mini-festival in Langesund. This spring he wants to bring the red thread from Høstpunkt to Pluss Pluss.
