During 2010–12 I have been working with an artistic development project, exploring the theme silence, related to my own practice as a director with a laboratory theatre background. My exploration has included questions on the director’s work process, position and communication with actors in collaborative situations, the presence of personal themes in the artistic work and the investigation of silence as a specific awareness and approach to the world. In 2011 a performance act, Silent Walk, was presented in urban public space, raising new questions and areas of exploration into the project. It put the relation between actor and spectator to a head and evoked questions on the ethical aspect of the human encounter. The project has produced different artifacts and documents: performances, texts, soundtracks, performance-lectures and a short film. A complex weave of questions, threads and documents has started to grow around the project.
