7–11 November, Black Box Teater: A performance about the affective qualities of running
Ingri Fiksdal´s new performance Deep Field centers around running and its affective qualities, for both performers and the audience. Amongst runners, the much sought-after "runners' high" denotes the affective state of euphoria where endorphins are released into the body, acting in a similar way to their medically engineered counterpart, morphine. They serve as a painkiller, and have through evolution helped human survival through providing extra stamina, for instance, when hunting animals. Endorphins are produced in the pre-frontal and limbic regions of the brain, which also light up in response to emotions, like love.
In Deep Field, Fiksdal investigates how to produce this love-like euphoria amongst the running performers, and to what extent it can be transferred for the audience.
