Sometimes things get accidentally lost and never show up again.
The act of vanishing: we are all searching for something to be grasped, if not it’s lost forever. There is a game that Freud describes as: “Children making things disappear and reappear, over and over, again”, as if they are practicing the experience of loss.
Lost Accidentally deals with the theme of loss and being lost. We are under the threat of deletion – not just by death – by simple means of forgetting or being forgotten. It’s the constant dialectic between permanency towards irreversibility. It’s the reconstruction of the moment when everything went wrong. It’s a peaceful space, it’s allowing the unexpected, it’s a before facing an after. Lost is not just a personal material thing – the object that slipped from our pocket. It’s the irreversible changes of our personal life and society and our inadequacy of facing those changes.
Starting to say something in a conversation and deciding to remain silence instead. It’s like erasing.
The piece premiered in May 2017 at Dansens Hus – National Scene for Dance in Oslo.
