ZOO Charteris – Aviary
Inspired by Karuki Murakami’s book with the same name, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a striking story told from the treadmill, by award-winning poet Fredrik Høyer, equipped with a pulse belt showing his heart rate in real time. Some years ago, Høyer was challenged by his then employer to run the Oslo Marathon. But, what does running really mean? Is it an escape, a pursuit, a fight, a relaxation? Perhaps running isn’t such a good picture of life anyway. Perhaps running is just running.
In this beautiful, existential and exhaustingly funny performance, spoken word, storytelling and The Other Theatre’s close and unruly style meet. Det Andre Teatret (The Other Theatre) is Norway’s first and largest independent improv/fringe theatre.
