Inasand … is an interactive participatory piece, a sense-making experience of collaborative creativity activating your senses. The project becomes a space where researching, experiencing, and interpreting are brought directly to you as an audience, connecting the external and internal through sand.

Helga Arnalds is a cross-disciplinary artist practicing across the boundaries of performance, visual theatre, and installation. She has developed an internationally recognised body of visual-theatre with her theatre group 10 FINGERS. Her work often focuses on the animation of materials, the inner sensing of both performer and audience, and the creative journey engaging with all of the senses.

“When working with natural materials, I have been curious to explore if it is possible to bring into the performing space the same deep, sensorial experience that people sometimes have in nature.”

“We think more than we can say.
We feel more than we can think.
We live more than we can feel.
And there is much more still.”
(Eugene Gendlin, 1971)
