THIRST is an audiovisual documentation of Atlantic ocean during a strong storm. The documentation of the visually and sonically expressive marine landscape was produced in the Faroe Islands as single-shot uncut registration of violent storm with a sound recoding. It was shot from the position on the firm rock of the coast, so that the camera view coincides with a human point of view. The audio-visual installation invites to enter the landscape of troubled waters, wind, rain and noise and to observe and listen to it from a distance, the action impossible in the natural circumstances when admiration is replaced with fear.
Producer: Voldemārs Johansons and the New Theatre Institute of Latvia
Premiered at the International Festival of Contemporary Theatre Homo Novus, Riga, September 2015
