Static theatre challenges the essential role of actor and actions in the performance and the constant time flow as a convention in the performance. It explores the interference between visual art and theatre, at the meantime, carefully examines the boundary between a performance and exhibition to seek the performance’s essences as a live art.

The concept of static theatre was initiated by Jingyi Wang in 2014, and the first performance Those that have been left behind was successfully realised on May 3rd, 2015 in Studio USF, Bergen. It was produced by BIT-Teatergarasjen and BEK, and supported by Art Council Norway and Bergen Kommune.
