THE FALL

INT. Stenersenmuseet, Oslo, 12. May - 24. June, 2001

A performance with 60 young people and seven elderly people.

The young people formed a line standing on the floor and stairs, through the gallery. In synchronicity to the music, they began to fall down on the floor, one after another. Rows of lifeless bodies, ending up outside a small room, where the elderly people sat around an empty bed, listening to bird song. The audience had to walk over the young people, in order to reach the elderly performers. The show lasted three hours, and by the end, many of the young performers were sleeping on the floor.
