FINDLAY // SANDSMARK

Findlay//Sandsmark (F//S) is a Stavanger, Norway based performance company working across the disciplines of dance, theater, live music and video art in a collaborative and collective effort. Over the past few years they have created several productions in the borderland between performing arts and installation, bending connections and correlations over disciplines to create live art which resonates from a physical and emotional plane. In that brief time, they have made seven large scale performances including most recently- biograph, last year was pretty/shitty (2014), o’ death (2015/2016), (re)remember study (2016/2017), returner (2017) and lowlands(florida) (2019).  This work has been presented in regular collaboration in Norway with Black Box Teater in Oslo, Bit Teatergarasjen in Bergen, and Avant Garden in Trondheim, and internationally at PS 122 Coil Festival and Abrons Arts Center in New York, On the Boards, Seattle, Wexner Center in Columbus, and Charlotte Street, Kansas City.  They are also behind the platform/space RIMI/IMIR SceneKunst in Stavanger, Norway where they have a full time production studio in an old boat factory/ grocery store as well as programming guest artists.

For each project they invite new collaborators to work with them in an open process based approach, such as: Pål Asle Pettersen, Chris Brokaw, Nils Erga, Sander L. Haga, Peter Warren, Jon Refsdal Moe, Diane Madden, Eric Dyer, Victor E. Morales, Ruud van den Akker, Jim Dawson, Young Jean Lee, Claudia La Rocco and Jason Rogenes.

The work is supported by Arts Council Norway, Rogaland Fylkeskommune, Stavanger Kommune and APAP-Performing Europe 2020 – a project co-founded by Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
