> DESCRIPTION

Between Mountain is an exhibition project by the Norwegian artists Margrethe Aanestad, Else Leirvik, and Ole Martin Lund Bø, which will take place in March 2012 in New York.

(Man and woman enter. Man and woman stand still and look around for about two seconds.
Man and woman look at one another shortly before turning to look around again.)

Woman (Assertive)
No.

Man (Almost at the same time)
No.

(They leave)

(Man and woman enter. Man and woman stand still and look around.
The man takes of his cap and looks at woman. Woman waves and smiles at
someone further inside the room.)

Woman
I’m sorry, my ex – husband is here.
(Walks one meter forward. Man follows)
(Silence)

Do you think I can get away with just a wink and a smile?

Man
Not if we stay here, no. Not in this place. Too much space in too small a
room.
(Silence)
(Woman waves again)

You’re bound to have to greet him properly on your way to the
restroom.
(Man looks at woman and smiles friendly)
Did you get along?

Woman
(Lifts her eyebrow)
I guess we got along as long as we got along. Certainly not longer
though. He made me realize my mediocrity and I made him pay by being
exceptionally boring.

Man
Well, if that’s so… at least then in one way he made you exceptional.

Woman (Smiles at man)
Yes, you have no idea.
(Looks away)
Lets leave.
(Man puts on caps and they leave)

(Man and woman enter a new place. Man looks around. Woman looks
to the floor.)

Woman
Brave pair of sneakers you are wearing.
(Looks up.)
This is more like a very dirty tennis-court. Everyone would just watch
us.

Man (Nods to the left)
Not those two.

Woman (Looks shortly to the left)
Yes, they are the players now, but soon it’ll be us.

(Man and woman leaves slowly. Man and woman enter new space)

Woman
I think I told you I wanted to dance.

Man
My sneakers are ok.
(Man and woman look around)
You told me you did not really mind anything anymore.

Woman
True.

(Man and woman are dancing. Man does not know what to do with his cap.)

Man
I feel like I’m the dancer in the dark now.

(Silence)

Woman (Smiles slightly)
I feel more like I’m the dancer in the fart.

(Man sniffs and opens his eyes.)

Well, this smell certainly gives this room a whole new dimension

Man
It wasn’t me!
(Turns red)
(Woman looks at red man)
(Silence)

Woman
Actually it was me.
(They dance a little faster now).
