1:100 the hybrid performative text as a feedback loop has been a project spanning four years. It has been an expanding project based on collaboration and exchange, and it could not have happened in isolation or without external funding.
The endeavor has involved performances, workshops, collective readings, installation work, collective writing projects, research periods, presentations and conversation. Some collaborators have been with me through out, others have been intense endeavors centered around specific projects.
I will especially thank my supervisors; Jesper Halle, Cecilie Moslie and Anne Gry Haugland for walking patiently beside me all the way. And without the sound advice and the experience of Trond Lossius, this project would have been very different. Thanks also to Therese Veier.
I will also thank the staff and the dean(s) at KHiO, Jon Refsdal Moe and Victoria Meirik for their support, and the master-students at KHiO for contributing to my project in so many ways. A special thanks to Fredrik Høstaker, Helle Bendixen, Karin Klouman Høiner, Sarah Mc Donald Berge and Maja Bohne Johnsen.
I will also thank Øystein Stene and Gianluca Iumento who together with Jesper Halle and me formed a research-group that for three years exchanged texts and ideas around polyvocality. And off course the project EU Collective Plays! and Paul C. Castagno for involving me in their project.
Dramatikkens Hus, Norsk Kulturråd and Ferske Scener has contributed financially to the project, and without Kristin Eriksen Bjørn and Bernt Bjørn none of this could have happened. I would also like to thank Vega Scene, gallery Bananaz and Tormod Carlsen for housing my City Dwellers project, and IAC in Malmø for a great residency in 2019. Thanks to NTNU, Minerva Art Academy, Cornerstone, OIAF, MOTforestillinger and Propellen Teater for housing great collaborative workshops during my research-period.
Together with my stage collective STATEX I have thought new thoughts and gained practical insight. Thanks Liv Hanne Haugen, Amund Sjølie Sveen, Jon Tombre and Lawrence Malstaf. Also thanks to the Arctic Arts Festival and Hålogaland Theatre for housing us.
One part of my project, the City Dwellers project, would not have been possible without strong helpers and collaborators, so thanks NOTAM, Mariam Gviniashvili and Tharadon for your knowledge and skills.
Also a thanks to all my readers for letting me record their voices. Most of them have taken part in the project for free, and all have contributed generously not only with the time and their skills but also with playfulness and an open mindset.
