A group of Isonians invites you to take part in a reflective exploration of concepts of Self, Community, System and Environment. During this journey you will get a chance to be playful and creative and leave traces of your individual perception of these notions in the form of collective artefacts.

Through the process of creating, building, manipulating materials, embodying, and again reflecting on each others' creations, both Isonians and people of the Earth will be given a chance to understand one another, find differences and similarities – as well as to learn from each others' experience, values and cultural core concepts.

(un)common ground is a chamber event taking place during the performance and living installation Home Planet, providing a scheduled meeting between the People of Earth and the travellers from the planet of Isona. The travellers from Isona are played by a group of people who are participating in the full performance, living in a building in the centre of Oslo four days in October, exploring the city and culture of Oslo. Buying a ticket for the chamber event (un)common ground will also give you the opportunity to visit the Isonian’s base location.

Participation does not require any preparation, and you will learn everything you need to know in order to participate after arriving on the location. You don’t have to perform in front of an audience, but you (and other participants) are an integral part of the chamber event and will be asked to embody yourself, a person from the Earth.

The creators behind (un)common ground, are Mariya Karachun, Yauheni Karachun, Volha (Olga) Rudak, and Nastassia Sinitsyna.
