During three days in October an extraordinary event takes place in Oslo. An alien culture - The Isonians - return to Earth. They will explore the city, Oslo’s culture and the way we live.

For 72 hours they will immersive themselves in an experimental, playful and sensuous exploration of what it means to be human and experiment with an alternative way of living in an urban city like Oslo.

Generations ago a group of people emigrated from Earth, to create a new society based on radical equality, and sensuous and close relations to each other as well as their surroundings. They founded a new home on another planet: Isona. Despite their success in building a new home on a scarce planet, an environmental catastrophe is looming, and now a group of Isonians organised themselves with the intention to explore whether a return to Earth is viable. They are known as the Returners. Is their culture compatible with the current state of Oslo?

While exploring, the Isonians are setting down a home base in the centre of Oslo. This is a shared venue where they sleep, eat, live and document their research – it is also a living installation, open to the public.

Visiting the Home Base does not require any preparation, and you will learn everything you need to know in order to participate to the extent you want after arriving on the location. You don’t have to perform in front of an audience, and you (and other participants) are only asked to embody yourself, a person from the Earth.

The creators behind the Isonian Home Base, its Mission, rituals and Living Room, are Nina Runa Essendrop, Peter Munthe-Kaas, Magnar Grønvik Müller, Nina Lund Westerdahl, Thibault Schiemann, Martin Nielsen and Karete Jacobsen Meland.

The event might be photographed/filmed for public use.
