GONE is physical cinema. A middle-aged man visits “Gljúfrasteinn” a house in Iceland where the novelist and Nobel Prize writer Halldór Laxness lived with his wife Audur. While the couple is away, a man enters their the house and spends the day there. Who is gone? Is he really there? What if someone spent the day at your house in your absence? Would you ever know?

Picasso once said that we are all born artists; In Gone we can see that we are all born dancers. It’s very clear when we are young children, before we start to speak or even walk, we start to move, we start to dance. ..It is in our nature. In this film the original movements come from the performer, Ingvar. Nobody moves the way he does, this includes for all of us. For him it comes naturally, for all of us. Everybody can dance, everyone should dance everyday. You can dance with your eyes, your fingers or your whole body. As we get older most of us dance less and less. Maybe we are just to busy with other things and there for many just use the body to move the head between meetings.
