About this exposition

The Red Shoes Project (2008-14) addresses various approaches to artistic research on the basis of three closely related theatre performances for young children (0-3 years). The project is concerned with the development of theatre for early years, in which opportunity is given for the children to play actively and bodily in the performances, and to interact with the performers. The Red Shoes Project explored the theatre as event through three different art settings, following methods and research design from the field of artistic research. The Red Shoes (2008) was a dance theatre performance for 1-year olds experimenting with the borders and thresholds of the theatre space. Red Shoe Missing (2011) was an art installation with red shoes, becoming a playground for children and improvisational space for artists. Mum´s Dancing (2011) was an improvised dance concert elaborating on changing perspectives and focus from the traditional common focus from spectators towards stage, each spectator´s individual focus and the affective multi focus of the whole event. The three artistic works was conducted through an artistic research process towards my Ph.D. dissertation at NTNU in 2014. This exposition presents some of the films related to the project, starting with a biographical reflection on childhood and play in Red Boots 1963. There is a summary of the research project added as a PDF, and some additional texts, but the exposition tries to give a visual introduction to the project not depending on the theoretical background and aspirations of the academic research. Playing and musical communication are core concepts guiding this interdisciplinary artistic research practice.
