"It's exciting, it's deeply human and it's exquisitely well written."
"Goksøyr and Martens have created a walking theater experience where all the pieces fit as they should and the surprises are saved for last. It makes you feel blessed."
"With "GO" they manage to open our senses and imagination in the face of the everyday. They incorporate you into a story about care that you can relate to your own life, and an entire urban space to reflect on it in. And they show how the familiar can offer moments of realization, if we just lift our gaze a little"
A woman is on her way to the emergency department, and as she passes through the city we listen in on her thoughts: about her mother – and what happened ten days ago.
GO (life #5) is an internal monologue that engages in a dialogue with the urban space, its sounds, and the events that occur there. At the same time, the performance explores how public hygiene measures can impact our relationships with loved ones, and how we cope with a lack of rituals.
GO (life #5) is the fifth and final part of the LIFE pentalogy – a series of performances that describe turning points in our journey from birth to death. Via a portable audio device, each audience member is guided from the centre of Oslo up to St. Hanshaugen.
