Stonework is a duet between a human and a stone from Hallingskarvet.

What can the stone teach us about closeness? What can it teach us about softness, about life? And what does the stone really like?

Stonework is about vibrations, temperature and gravity, and about two bodies trying to understand each other. The performance is exploratory and playful. It is based on a desire to enter into an equal relationship with the stone and create a performance that takes account of the stone's perspective and inner life. Composer Seán ó Dálaigh has created music based on this stone's unique frequency. In this universe that lies on the border between physical theatre, installation and concert, can we perhaps become infected with a more intimate relationship with stones?

Espen Hjort and Mees Borgman collaborate under the name Landmarks. Ecology is an important theme in their work, where they try to look beyond human perspectives. Stonework is the first of a series of performances created in collaboration with more-than-human fellow creatures.
