Blend/verk 2001

Extracts from reviews of the performance: ‘...interesting, original and challanging’ (Morgenbladet)

‘...powerful choreographic craft’ (Verdens Gang )

"Gilje’s media-based scenography is an integrated and essential element of a whole, often underplayed, subtle and sensitive, creating an extra spatial dimension within which the actions of the performers are often precisely framed. Tending towards abstraction, but not falling into mere ambience, his scenography for Kreutzerkompani’s recent production Blendverk achieved a rare and delicate balance between concrete and illusory spaces, inviting a playfulness on the part of the dancers, and leaving spaces into which the individual perceptions of the audience could project, allowing for a plurality of readings. Although everything the audience saw was based upon a skilful manipulation of light, projection, physical motion and three dimensional space, and was absolutely real and concrete, the poetic spatial manipulations of the piece challenged us to see the performance as a passage, a threshold between the concrete world we inhabit and the virtual worlds we dream of inhabiting." Jeremy Welsh (2001)

Månedens forestilling på Black Box Teater april 2001

Utdrag anmeldelser:

"Ensomhet gjennom tidene."
"Det er lite lys i den mennesklige tunnelen i Richardsens verden. Det handler om ensomhet, tomhet, dekadanse, desperasjon i en lett pervertert verden. Det moderne mennesket er splittet i forhold til sitt eget liv, noe forestillingens slutt, eller mangel på som sådan, uttrykker ekstremt bra." Fredrik Rütter Aftenposten april 2001
