Joe 5

Earth changes rapidly. We enter an era where time, space and communication have other meanings and in which other lifeforms flourish. What is now, could be gone tomorrow. What once was science fiction, is now a probable reality. Somewhere in this chaotic universe, you can find Joe 5. This neohuman and explorer has a task to save the last of human kind, throughout the infinite universe. One day he receives a distress call, urging him to set out for Mars.

Unknown creatures try to connect with him during his travels. What do they want and where are the people in need? When Joe finally meets the one who tried to reach him, nothing is what he could have imagined.

In JOE 5 Duda Paiva Company creates a vision for the future. What is the influence of our destructive nature on the rest of the universe? Is there a common future or has everything changed so much that there is no place left for who we are and how we think? Are we capable of understanding each other? Curious about unknown entities and mankind’s options in a changed world, Duda Paiva invited the dancers Ilija Surla and Josse Vessies and visual artists STMSND to create a vision on the future in this new solo.

Joe 5

Jorda forandrer seg raskt. Det som en gang var science fiction, er nå en sannsynlig virkelighet.
Møt Joe 5 – et neomenneske med oppdrag å redde det som finnes igjen av menneskeheten.
Med Joe 5 har Duda Paiva company skapt en framtidsvisjon. Hvordan påvirker vi resten av universet? Finnes det en felles framtid eller har alt forandret seg å mye at det ikke lenger er plass til oss slik vi er og slik vi tenker?
Duda Paiva gjestet FiF 2016 med “Blind” og FiF 2018 med “Monsters”, og vi er glad for nok en gang å ønske denne verdensartisten velkommen til Fossekleiva!
