Avgang 2023: Don’t mention the Moustache

This research project by Ellen Jerstad investigates the juxtarposition of identity and belonging in the age of individualism.

The project rotates around transgenerationalism and the idea of a “self” through imagined dialogue and dances with family members, ancestors and a strange mustached man. The mustached man being the philosopher, mystic, composer and teacher of spiritual work and dance; George Ivanovich Gurdjieff; whose ideas the project subject (Jerstad)s parents and grandparents on both side follow and practice. This project investigates how to deal with inherited struggles that we are not initiated into. Gaps between generations, a passion to move, and longing to uncover spiritual secrets.

Co-creators and performers: Vincent Vernerie and Kristian Larson
Poster, visuell elements: Katja Henriksen Schia
Lighting design: Martin Myrvold
Inspisient: Ronja Elvenes
