After studying at P.A.R.T.S., Heine Røsdal Avdal, a Norwegian who lives in Brussels, was for a long time a member of the choreographer Meg Stuart’s company Damaged Goods. He has also worked with dance companies in Norway and has performed his own solos.

He founded the Deepblue group with the dancer Yukiko Shinozaki and the soundscape designer Christoph De Boeck. All three are fascinated by the impact of technology on human life and are looking for ways of gearing human and technological forms of communication to each other. Their work focuses on the tension between the organic and the artificial, and between the proper and the improper.

Avdal continues this theme in this new production, Some notes are. He looks at how new forms of relationship arise as a result of new technologies – between dancer and spectator and between man and his environment. All the elements of the performance (theatre, audience, dancer, video, etc.) are used to this end, because they are all part of the same communication network.
