Bouncing Narratives is a jumbled mess—a playful wash of images, sounds and movements that elicits the fine line of pure joy and trauma narratives. It centers around a trauma that cannot be expressed in words, that bounces back again and again. The spectators lie on soft mats and follow the performers on a trampoline above them. The use of minimal and repetitive vocabulary, like bouncing and sliding and nuances of rhythm and speed becomes the main component of a performative act that animates the installation and drives towards a trance-like intensity. In this interdisciplinary collaborative project Roza Moshtaghi proposes a heterotopian space for the alienated body, the vulnerable self of a “monster identity” and for the gap between the self and the “other”.

Roza Moshtaghi is an Iranian artist who lives and works in Oslo. Her creations often are situated within the performing arts field as a choreographer, dancer and performer. Her works deal with the unexplained narratives of desire generated in adapting or reacting to systems and structures. The ordinary, or rather what we have forced inside the uniform of the ordinary, is Roza’s playground. She looks for possibilities to hypothesize “the hidden” by digging into the ordinary as a silent landscape. Roza holds an MA in choreography from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. She presents her work internationally and continues developing projects with other artists as a collaborator and performer.
