LIMBO depicts a collage of patterns in a loop. A period of waiting in a landscape made of repeated motifs, movements, and sounds in play.

A pattern is a regularity in the world. The hound’s tooth has regularity, as do lace, honeycomb and the skin of a milk snake. Broken and repeated, patterns create rhythm. Merging with the rhythm, the pattern appears flat. Like an adventure comic sequence stuffed into a single drawn frame, the complete story resides in one image, filled to the brim. 

The soundscape is the invisible storyteller and the lonely spoken language of this performance. Its words are inspired by the macho-mythologies of tattoo wearing: A story of the body, predicting life’s course, marking the end of a life or remembrance of a lover. Tattoos, like lace, simultaneously conceal the skin and expose it, doubling as both costume and body.

Roza Moshtaghi is a choreographer and performer based in Oslo. Her most recent performances are Bouncing Narratives (2019) and Only Forever (2018). Only Forever was part of Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival at Black Box teater spring 2019.
